Fresh off a tip-to-toe renovation, this sleep in Montreal's Golden Square Mile lives up to the nabe’s prestigious pedigree
Transformed by a $20 million renovation by designer Alexandra Champalimaud, this 31-story tower rising above swish Sherbrooke Street sparkles. Champalimaud opened the lobby up, creating a vestibule and fireplace just off the bustling street. Crystal chandeliers and gold wall treatments complement light marble floors, and gold pillows make a statement atop brown and green velvet couches and chairs that wink at the property’s 1970s heritage. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide plenty of natural light and connect the lobby to the cosmopolitan scene outside.
Bed & Bath
In a previous life the hotel was a Four Seasons, and its heritage bequeaths plenty of square footage in all 299 guestrooms. Champalimaud’s green, gold and mustard color scheme carries over into the rooms, which are equipped with writing desks, velvet couches and leather chairs. The bathrooms are big, with marble double vanities equipped with ever-important swivel makeup mirrors. The bidets are a reminder of Montreal’s continental roots, even if they baffle American visitors; the bathtubs are a bit small, but the showers have good pressure. If more water is what you seek, head down to the seasonal pool or year-round hot tub.
Though the renovation updated every aspect of this stay, an important part of the hotel’s heritage remains intact: Since the building opened in 1976 a statue called Alice, by local artist Alice Winant, has graced its lobby. The bronze of a contemplative woman atop a marble pedestal was Champalimaud's muse for the lobby's intimate Alice Bar, where the signature drinks include the Alice, with vodka and crème de cassis.
