Montreal's energetic, edgy hotel

152 Rooms / 31 Suites

W Montréal brings an energetic, youthful edge to the hotel scene in one of Canada’s oldest cities. The brand’s first entry into the country, W Montréal sits on the site of the former Bank of Canada, only steps away from Old Montreal and a few blocks from the downtown core.

In operation since 2004, the hotel not only represents the creativity and joie de vivre of Montrealers, it welcomes all types of travelers: business, families, friends, design fans as well as art and music lovers.

The Rooms

There are eight room types at W Montréal, ranging from the 250-square-foot Cozy Room all the way to the jaw-dropping 1,336-square-foot Extreme Wow Suite. The accommodations come with enviable views that spotlight Victoria Square Park, the atrium or the cityscape, along with a laid-back luxe feel.

In addition to the signature all-white W bedding, the interior design incorporates elements such as nautical patterns on cushions, black leather and faux-fur runners, gold leather sofas and chevron-print carpets.

On the tech side of things, you’ll have everything you need with 42-inch flat-panel televisions with in-room entertainment, smartphone-charging docks, work desks and Wi-Fi.

The Spa

Located on the first floor of the luxury hotel, Away Spa offers a variety of personalized treatments ranging from massages and facials to aromatic body wraps in a small, intimate setting. The spa can only accommodate five people at a time, so individualized attention takes these services to the next level.

Italian products from Comfort Zone are used for ultimate relaxation.

The Food and Drinks

Imagine nourishing body, mind and soul all at once. That is what Ê.A.T. (Être Avec Toi) restaurant proposes (it translates to “to be with you”). Dine in an art-filled gallery while listening to DJ-curated soundtracks, and savor seafood dishes prepared by chef Sébastien Giannini. 

Try the lobster Benedict or smoked salmon plate for breakfast, sample the fish of the day for lunch and share the paella with a companion for dinner.

Ê.A.T. is also a good place for a pre-dinner drink; you can’t go wrong with one of the cocktails or a glass of wine on tap. If you like whiskey, migrate over to Bartini — the smallest bar in the city — to be one of the lucky six to grab a seat and enjoy every sip in a cozy setting.

For a livelier scene, go to hot spot Wunderbar, where resident DJs attract a crowd, especially in its VIP lounge area. The tableside services at The Plateau Lounge will surely spoil you; expert mixologists wheel a cocktail cart over and concoct a perfect libation right in front of you.

The Extras

One of the ways W Montréal stands above the crowd is with its “Whatever, Whenever” policy, meaning service available 24 hours a day, whether you need tickets to one of Montreal’s popular festivals or a party on a private jet.

If there’s a secret desire in your heart or if you want to surprise a loved one, call or drop by the Top Désirs help desk and one of the W Insiders will do everything in his power to make it come true. Make him your accomplice for an unforgettable experience.

As a bonus, the Montreal hotel welcomes pets on the premises. In addition to typical grooming and walking services, a pet room service menu is available around the clock.
