Channeling Old World French aristocracy in an updated and alluring — not old-fashioned and stuffy — way, this très chic contemporary boutique property has just 30 suites and emanates a sweetly romantic and very intimate vibe. From the cozy ski lodge–style decor to the wine cellar bar to the stellar service from the moment you walk through the door, this award-winning small hotel’s focus is dedicated to pleasing and pampering guests.
Bed and Bath
Suites are more than generous in size, and the design is luxury ski chalet — think lots of wood, stucco and stone. The lake and mountain views, which can be taken in through screened French patio doors that open onto either a balcony or terrace, are another highlight. So are the wood-burning fireplaces, which not only supply physical warmth, they up the cozy ski chalet romantic ante. Baths are equally heavenly, with heated marble floors, rain showers and deep sunken spa tubs. The Aveda products are another classy touch.
On three acres sloping down to Lake Tremblant, the manicured grounds here are as visually pleasing as the lavish interior. Whirlpool hot tubs and a seasonal infinity pool front the lake, offering a chance to soak in the deep blue vistas. If your body aches from a day on the mountain, head to Spa Sans Sabots, also located lakeside, which offers a delicious list of ultra-relaxing treatments. The house restaurant, Restaurant La Quintessence, is one of only 25 AAA 4-Diamond restaurants in Quebec; it focuses on regional specialties and organic herbs plucked from the chef’s personal garden. If you’d rather just have a glass of vino, try the less formal wine bar. It has a good selection of wines by the glass, plus a lengthy port and scotch list. Guests can also ask the sommelier for a tour the impressive 60-foot-long exposed wine cellar, which boasts nearly 4,000 bottles, and to sample a few house favorites in the adjacent tasting room.
How to Get There
If you are looking for a special few nights, or for a business getaway spa vacation Quintessence is very nice. Mont Tremblant for skking is right there no need to drive the mountain is at your doorstep
Wow It was our first stay at this fine hotel
It Is extremely well located just off the main village We were greeted warmly by the valet and by the hostess We were escorted to our room which was stunning with all the amenities and a killer view of the pool and lake beyond
Breakfast the next morning was scrumptious and although a buffet we had many choices of made to order items
I look forward to returning soon
The cars in the parking lot were especially fine eye candy as they were also there for the Drive 4 Smiles weekend fundraiser for Starlight Foundation
Stayed for a conference held at nearby hotel.
Hotel Quintessence is by far the best hotel adjacent Mont-Tremblant. Fast friendly service at the reception, free valet parking and a very large room with a soaking tub and separate shower.
A beautiful room with a beautiful view. It is everything you need to relax. My only comments would be:
- the bed is a little hard (but that is a very personal opinion)
- it would be nice to have takeout coffee cups in the room
- there is no breakfast card if you want to order your breakfast in advance (unless I missed it).
Other than that....WOW!
My wife and I stayed at this hotel. Simply put, it was incredible!
The service is excellent (valet, they bring your bags to your room, the give you water bottles for the drive home), the facilities are wonderful (gorgeous pool and Jacuzzi overlooking Lac Tremblant, sauna, gym, and steam room) and the rooms are second to none (large and spacious, beautiful shower and separate bath with jets, large balconies, and wonderful views). The location is perfect - right on the water and walking distance to everything.
This is the best hotel I have ever stayed at in Canada. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth every penny.
We will DEFINITElY return to Hotel Quintessence!
