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.
How to Get There
The Omni Hotel is a beautiful hotel located very close to the Bell Centre and many restaurants. The Doormen are exceptional! Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. All the staff are very welcoming. Only negative about the hotel was that I didn't find the pillows very comfortable and need access to more channels on the tv. Overall an excellent experience and I would definitely stay there again!
I am staying there regularly for business, and sometimes bring my spouse along. Excellent service and beautiful hotel. Great location right downtown, and close to McGill University.
The lounge bar is also very comfortable and inspiring.
My husband and I are globe trotters so we've stayed in many hotel chains. We were in Montreal this past weekend and booked The Omni last minute.
This hotel has a wow factor! We were greeted by Kelsey at the front desk; she was very friendly and accommodating. She upgraded us to a city view and offered many recommendations on places to eat, etc.
The hotel is pristine and very elegant. Everything is spotless and shiny. We had a cityview king room on the 21st floor; what a gorgeous view of the city. Room was beautiful, tastefully decorated and the bed was a dream to sleep in. Great linens, pillows and a very comfortable mattress. We ordered room service and it was prompt and delicious.
I also want to note that all employees were extremely friendly. Great job on human resources for hiring the best of the best.
I will definitely be back and would 100 percent recommend this hotel to anyone. Oh! The location- you really cannot beat it! Within walking distance to Centre Bell and many pubs and restaurants. Bravo Omni- you didn't miss one detail and I'll be back!
This is my new favourite hotel in Montreal. I plan on returning for a 3rd stay. I have stayed in approximately 8 hotels in the downtown Montreal area. I highly recommend! I love the hotel for the view, service, available taxis, and beauty of the hotel.
This was our first time at the Omni. We have tried various hotels in Montreal and this ranks as one of the better ones.
Our room was very spacious, the bed was extremely comfortable and we also liked how quiet it was. We will be back.
