LE GERMAIN HOTEL MONTREAL Montreal resides on the shores of the St. Lawrence River looking every bit as regal as you would expect for a city originally founded in 1642 on the triple peaks of hilly Mont Royale. Walk a few blocks in the downtown core and it strikes you how the changes in elevation have played their part in forming the streets and riverside walk- ways. Cross over to Park Jean-Drapeau, home of Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve and the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada since 1978, and the view back takes on even more depth. Montreal is a city that lingers in your mind and quickly becomes a place to return to as often as possible. At the heart of it all, just a short walk from Park du Mont-Royal, resides Le Germain Hotel Montreal. It is close to all the action on Saint Catherine Street, but far enough away to allow for evening respite from the constant din of crowd noise, especially during F1 race weekend. It feels as though Montreal never sleeps, so a short stroll up to the hotel is a great way to walk off dinner and take a moment to get away from the beauti- ful busyness of downtown.
Step into the front lounge and there is an instant sense of calm and relaxation. Bar le Flâneur is located on the main floor, immediately to the right of check-in and provides an ideal setting to enjoy oysters, a glass of champagne or one of many local beers and cocktails. Buffet breakfast and main dining occurs in Le Boulevardier Restaurant which takes its inspiration from French bras- sieres, offering the best locally sourced fresh ingredients and perfect French wine pairings. Just a few steps away, elevators take guests to their rooms overlooking the city, with a view towards McCord Museum from the front facing windows. Room are decorated in a modern take on the 60’s and range in size from The Classic to various suite sizes including the Apartment Suite. Many highlight egg-shaped clear suspended lounge chairs and there is even the Round Bed room for that added 60’s vibe. 2050 Mansfield Street, Montreal, Quebec, Canada www.germainhotels.com/en/ le-germain-hotel/montreal
