Montreal’s Best Hotel Terrasses

Terrasse lovers, Montreal is your town. With the winters we get, it’s no wonder summer makes us want to hang out outside all the live-long day. There are terrasses of every ilk here, from bars to restaurants to rooftop to street-side, but my hands-down favourites are hotel terrasses. Like hotel bars, there’s a sense of adventure built into the experience…

Raise Your Hands! It’s Spring

The snow is melting, the birds are chirping… and by golly, we’re finally getting ready to wear open-toed shoes. Get in the mood for the upcoming pedicure season with an indulgent manicure. (Groomed fingers = instant poise.) Montreal has got a plethora of top shelf nail bars, so the choice was difficult… but here are our favourites. SHELlAC ATTACK Rouge Bar has three locations around the city, and it’s always a singularly convivial place to get your extremities groomed. Their signature trait are the big TVs that animate their spaces with a constant stream of rom-coms featuring Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis and Julia Roberts. Catch up on the latest chick flicks while getting a long-lasting shellac mani for a very reasonable $45. MANI-PEDI? STEADY Rock the boat at BOTA BOTA, where all treatments come with a magnificent view of the St. Lawrence and the Old Port. They offer a handy express treatment that will have you looking neat and polished within your lunch break, but we recommend the Spa treatments: the $115 mani-pedi combo takes two hours and involves a peeling as well as a massage. Perk: the salon uses vegan products by Spa Ritual. A CUT(ICLE) ABOVE Reach the pinnacle… / Read More →

Hotel Gault: A four-star getaway in Old Montreal

Hotel Gault, in the heart of Old Montreal, is one of the city’s most unique luxury stays. Set in a fully restructured historic building, reinforced against earthquakes with injected concrete, its aesthetic is less ancient than other Old Montreal hotels. By the time Montreal design firm YH2 began work on the project, the original structure had already been transformed through time – it was used as offices and storage space, and few of the original elements were recoverable. The result is a historic exterior and a spacious, gorgeous interior oasis of peace and tranquillity whose aesthetic is mostly contemporary. We spoke to YH2 designer Marie-Claude Hamelin…

Intercontinental Montréal: A luxe niche right downtown

When the lavish Intercontinental Montréal changed hands in 2009, the new owners ordered a complete redesign. In came California-based firm Zebrowsky Design Group, who had a mandate to do everything from redecorate the furnishings to completely transform the lobby’s layout. Montreal and its European heritage was a big part of Tim Zebrowky’s inspiration for all those decisions, from minute to mighty; we caught up with him to discuss his ideas…

Hotel St-Paul: A Luxury Boutique Hotel in Old Montreal

Designer Anna Borallo isn’t only the creative mind behind the décor of Old Montreal’s jewel, Hotel St-Paul; she also decided on the spatial planning. That’s because before the hotel opened in 2000, the beautiful historic building seen from the outside was entirely gutted and build anew on the inside. That’s what makes the white-walled rooms so spacious and the construction so carefully and beautifully measured. There’s a respect for nature’s colours, and a generally sleek minimalism that gives the property its eminently tasteful feel. We asked the designer about her inspirations…

Hotel 10: The revamped historic gem right on the Main

Perched on the storied corner of Saint-Laurent and Sherbrooke Street, Hotel 10 may be set in a historical building but it’s as new as can be. When the current owners took over the property, which had been an Opus hotel, they did a makeover of major proportions – everything from the interior décor palette to the shape of furniture changed. General Manager Bob Eyton-Jones presided over the entire process. We caught up with him in Montreal…
