Quebec’s history and joie de vivre comes directly to you at the Westin, as it is situated close to many of the city’s top galleries, restaurants and landmarks. It’s also opposite the colourful Palais des Congrès convention centre, placing you not just in Old Montreal but also linking you with the underground city. The hotel sits within easy reach of the Old Port quaysides and overlooks downtown from its upper floors.
A standout hotel with impressive public spaces, the Westin’s 454 rooms and suites are no exception. Decorated in warm earth tones, they feature Heavenly Beds that will ensure you nod off easily thanks to their custom-designed mattress, fine fabrics and plush layers. Bathrooms come with make-up mirrors, dual showerheads and velour bathrobes, and if you opt for a Workout Room you could even be working off the calories to tracks or videos playing over a Bose system and HD TV.
Perfect for exhibitionists, a glass-bottomed pool hovers above the entranceway at the Westin, or for more privacy a twin pool is available too. A well-appointed on-site gym also features strength and cardio equipment. Stepping out of the hotel, Old Montréal has a varied nightlife: bistros, nightclubs and fine dining can all be found on the nearby streets of Notre Dame, Saint-Antoine, Saint Jacques and down by the waterfront. Within 1km of the hotel you can see a show at Place des Arts, treat your ears at the Montréal Symphony Orchestra or watch ice hockey or the latest visiting rock star at Centre Bell.
Gazette restaurant takes its name from the newspaper whose printing presses once resided here. Its Quebec-influenced cuisine deserves headlines too, promoting the type of farm to table slow food that makes it one of the best places to eat out in this city. A long marble bar top and modern art prints reflect the chic dishes on offer, which range from salmon tartare or lobster tail with papaya and mango salsa, to seared scallops with pancetta and a host of meaty main courses with inventive twists.
