The Marriott Château Champlain Brings Meetings To A New Height. Literally.
A good hotel will have a distinctive meeting space. A very good hotel will have two distinctive meetings spaces. But what about three distinctive meeting spaces? In addition to a couple dozen traditional meetings rooms, Montréal’s Marriott Chateau Champlain has three unmatched gems — rooms you’ll want to know about when planning your next Montréal gathering.
But before we swoon too much over the meeting venues, let’s pause for a brief historical interlude. Constructed by Quebec architects Jean-Paul Pothier and Roger D’Astous (a student of Frank Lloyd Wright), the hotel was an important part of the city’s revitalization for Expo 67. With its romantic arch-shaped windows, the Château Champlain has become an icon of the Montréal landscape. Standing 40 stories high, it continues to be Montréal’s tallest hotel.
Now, let’s get back to business and talk about these aforementioned meeting spaces. Here are three rooms at the Marriott Château Champlain that you absolutely must know about: a lively cabaret, a classy study and a stunning penthouse.
Le Caf ‘Conc’
Unparalleled in North America, this room is the perfect combination of theatre and supper club. Guests feel like they’ve walked onto the set of Moulin Rouge. The venue adds a perfect backdrop for product launches — for up to 200 people!
If intimate is what you’re after, look no further. Travel back in time to New France in this charming salon, designed to replicate the 17th century study of European explorer Samuel de Champlain. The space provides executive-style seating for up to 26 and can host up to 50 for an classy reception.
That view! Try a banquet for 350 or an lively reception for 60 overlooking the shining lights of downtown Montreal in one of the Maisonneuve penthouse-level rooms. Your guests will gush about the modern, urban feel.
