A City Vacation – Experience the Hotel Life!

A City Vacation – Experience the Hotel Life!

Even though it’s winter, do you find that your thoughts keep returning to spring? While you wait for the tulips and daffodils to make their grand return, why not set aside a day or two (or three… maybe four… let’s go nuts!) to take your time, savour the present moment, and let yourself be pampered? If you want to get away from your daily life to reconnect with yourself, spend some time as a couple with no other pressing responsibilities, or to give the family something different to do, go for the hotel life experience!

The hotels of Old Montreal are out there, ready to welcome you with bright eyes and dazzling smiles, all excited to see you!

Hotel Uville Montréal, 204 Place d'Youville
The newest addition to the Épik Collection family will have you travelling the Montreal of the 1960’s and 70’s: an astounding job of archival work down to the tiniest detail has been done at each floor of the hotel, injecting extra culture to your relaxing stay. Glimmers of the past can be seen in the smallest touches, from the house coffee and pastry menu, to the ambient music, to the room’s interior decorating. Culture buffs will be charmed, especially with the fact that the hotel is only a short walk away from the Pointe-à-Callière Museum. This is a great choice for those wanting to explore history!

Hotel Bonaparte
, 447 Saint-François-Xavier Street

The walls made of stone and original brick will transport you back in time. Finally, it should be said that Condé Nast Traveller included the Nelligan among the Top Ten Hotels in Canada during the year 2020.
