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
Cheerfully attentive helpfull staff everywhere..
From reception to the small bar, the
Concierge to the cleaning staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Room was enormous , bed oh so comfortable. Breakfast a little expensive , but tasty all the same.
We just returned from an 11 night cruise on Oceania Riviera, and having never been to Montreal, we asked friends for a recommendation for a hotel. They recommened Hotel Omni Mont-Royal because they know we always take a suite, and the suites have two full bathrooms; very important to me. The hotel was fantastic. We were on a high floor, feather-free floor, also very important to me due to allergies. We highly recommend staying at this lovely hotel, right in the heart of the "Golden Square" of Montreal.
For me the quality of the bed is very important and this hotel has great beds. We had a great view of Mont Royal in a corner suite. We got a standard room so be sure to ask for a corner as they are larger with a seating area. The bar on the main level was quite lively and we were served quickly and efficiently. Breakfast was included and in spite of some of the other reviews I read, it was just fine. Plenty of choices. The hotel is 2 blocks from St Catherine Blvd which is the main shopping street. And Old Town is about a 15 minute walk. Staff is pleasant and the maid even left us a nice note thanking us for her tip.
