August 24, 2012 – One of Montréal’s finest hotels – often called the “Hotel of the Festivals” – the Hyatt Regency sits right downtown smack in the middle of Montréal’s spectacular Quartier des spectacles, the entertainment district. Just step out onto Sainte-Catherine Street and chances are you’ll find yourself caught up in the middle of a festival – Jazz, Laughs, Highlights – you name it! You’re right across the street from Montréal’s concert halls and museum of modern art; walk a couple of blocks to the west and you’re on your way to a shopping spree in one of the most chic boutique districts on the continent.
Or go underground. Not only does the Hyatt connect to Places des Arts and the Musée d’art contemporain, Montréal’s Underground Pedestrian Network leads you comfortably and in style to Chinatown (the real deal), Old Montréal, and beyond!
A stay at the Hyatt Regency Montréal is a body-and-soul-pampering experience. This year, the AAA Four Diamond hotel also won the Grand Prix du tourisme québécois 2012 Ulysse Award for its “innovation in excellence and hospitality”. Naturally, this includes legendary Montréal cuisine, whether you wish to eat al fresco overlooking the festivities (part of the street is closed to traffic at different periods in the summer) or at the SIX Resto-Lounge for “inspired and inspiring” locavore lunches, dinners and its innovative wine-sampling system.
Completely renewed in 2005 at a cost of $11 million, its 605 rooms and suites are all equipped with work desks, wireless high-speed Internet, and Respire by Hyatt – Hypo-Allergenic Rooms, a state-of-the-art air purification system that provides a heavenly sleep, especially for allergy sufferers. And, to show off that Montréal-designed bathing suit you bought – an indoor pool!
