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
we had a suite, bed was comfy, fixtures not modern but life left in them yet, free wifi limited to 3mbps- bit twitchy. swimming pool not heated, pity. there about 300 rooms in a tower block structure in a central location. staff are nice, good in fact (people are so polite in montreal, respect!) no reason not to book here, nothing outstanding but it stacks up well as a good 4 star hotel. you just know the accountants are running the show when you get a dressing gown but have to ask for slippers lol. we take our slippers home and our dogs reverse engineer them, some last 30 seconds but morlands slippers can last weeks and can need 2 dogs to fully deconstruct. i am predicting the hotels slippers will last 5 minutes. oh you get a nespresso machine, nice, but no kettle
Just returned from Montreal where we stayed at Omni Mont-Royal. The staff was professional giving us a warm welcome as we arrived. The room was large, modern, and very clean. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property. It is well located in downtown Montreal with a number of restaurants just a short walk away. If you need a cab, the hotel will get you one quickly.
Large clean nicely decorated rooms. Very close to McGill. Just don't order room service breakfast. I know, I know. No one should ever but I had work to do. Seriously though this is a great hotel and Montreal is great city for food. Leave the hotel for food.
Excellent place to stay in Montreal. Conveniently located, clean and we'll maintained. Customer service is outstanding in all aspects. Elevator wait is not long. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
The hotel was clean and comfortable. No major issues. Very good location on Sherbrooke near McGill. Food from room service was good. Valet Parking is expensive ($37 per night) but there is close by self parking.
