Montréal welcomes dual-branded hotel scheme
Showcasing the work of Architex Group, Blazysgerard and Atelier Zebulon Perron, a dual-branded development in Québec’s largest city has now opened its doors.
Urgo Hotels & Resorts Canada and Devmont Construction have announced the launch of a major new hotel complex, which is home to both Hilton Garden Inn Montreal Midtown and Homewood Suites by Hilton Montreal Midtown.
A prime location
Situated in the new Westbury neighbourhood of midtown Montréal, this dual-branded Hilton Worldwide property provides a diverse accommodation offering that’s surrounded by lush greenery, all within easy reach of major landmarks. It also gives guests direct access to major highways and the Montréal subway, as well as being just 10 km from the downtown core and 11 km from Montréal-Trudeau International Airport.
The property is owned by Montréal-based Joe and Sam Scalia of Devmont Construction and managed by Urgo Hotels & Resorts Canada. Architex Group led the architectural design, while Blazysgerard and Atelier Zebulon Perron designed the interiors, and the work of Montréal artist Carmelo Blandino is represented on the exterior.
“Our hotel complex is situated in the perfect neighbourhood to experience Montréal’s true business, entertainment and dining vibe,” said Pino Nicosia, director of sales and marketing. “We will become the much-sought-after destination for the ultimate guest experience – immersed in the level of service Montréal is renowned for.”
Overall, this ambitious project represents an investment of over CAN$70 million (US$56.9 million).
A diverse hospitality offering
The 157 contemporary rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel are designed with both business and leisure travellers in mind, while the 133 enhanced studios, one- and two-bedroom suites at the Homewood Suites scheme cater for extended stays with amenities including large living areas, fully equipped kitchens and oversized bathrooms.
A stay at Homewood Suites comes with complimentary buffet breakfast, plus an evening social hour three days a week. Guests staying at either hotel also gain access to an array of amenities under one roof, from an indoor pool and fitness centre to a grab-and-go market and business centre. In addition, they can benefit from indoor parking, complimentary wifi, contactless digital check-in and Hilton’s connected room platform.
A grand staircase leads guests from the hotel’s lobby to the mezzanine level and pre-function space. Events may be hosted in the 5,000 sq ft Westbury Ballroom, featuring 16 ft windows, which sits adjacent to an outdoor terrace spanning 1,800 sq ft; there’s also an 800 sq ft meeting room and small boardroom. Montréal-based catering company Brera Catering oversees the events’ food and drink offering.
