The Perfect Spot in Montreal

- Juliana Scaligine,

When I think of Montreal, I picture food, architecture, shopping and nightlife – a petit Paris.

The St Paul Hotel is the perfect spot to experience all of it.

The hotel is located in trendy Old Montreal which has turned into a hub for all the hot spots. The cobblestone streets here overflow with inviting restaurants, beautiful shops, galleries, busy nightclubs and jazz clubs.

What I loved about the hotel was the stunning architecture. The hotel’s exterior is bold and striking while the interior is softer and welcoming. The St Paul Hotel is true inner city chic with its striking alabaster fireplace in the front lobby and the incorporation of the elements of ice, fire, earth and sky in their design. The soft monochromatic design palette creates an ambient, serene atmosphere.

My suite had high 13 ft ceilings, a super cool cow rug, trendy furnishings most of which was custom designed along with exquisite antiques from around the world. The suit is also perfectly set up for business with complementary high speed Wi-Fi and an in-room fax machine.

For dinner, St Paul Hotel has Restaurant Vauvert which not only has delicious French cuisine, but is now also one of the places to go for drinks on the weekend to see and been seen. Their other restaurant Cube 2 is a great less formal dining spot and is perfect for breakfast or brunch. Cube 2 is also available to rent for private functions or weddings.

This summer, St Paul Hotel has a special package for all its visitors from June 1st – October 15 2010 which when you book a 3 night say you get your third night at 50% off. Montreal is the city to be in during the these months as there are an abundance of festivals and community celebrations happening which always makes for a wonderful vacation. And with St Paul Hotel’s location you’ll be close to all the festivities.
