Sofitel Montreal Golden Mile
What it is
A 241-room high-rise hotel with a Francophile-worthy restaurant and bar.
What it isn't
Hands off. Star service includes turn-down, babysitting, laundry, online check-in, doting concierges and eight (8!) languages spoken on-site, from Polish to Japanese.
What we think
Sleek interiors don’t equate to minimal—not when it comes to pampering here. Even beginning room categories are fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows, Bose radios and iPod docks, Nespresso machines, fluffy goose down comforters and, in the bath, rainfall showers and toiletries by Lanvin. Throughout the hotel, you may spot Victorian-era antiquities from the curated estate of railroad magnate William Cornelius Van Horne. You’ll appreciate the high-tech gym, especially after a night of revelry from the comforts of the leather armchairs at Le Bar. How do you say “another of this exact same cocktail, please” in French?
You're here because
The hotel has plenty of indoor, on-site parking—a rarity in these parts—plus valet.
You’re famished after a day of strolling the cobblestones and, thankfully, Restaurant Renoir is there to revive you. What will you have...scallops with parsley crust? Butternut gnocchi? Or fried egg with black truffle? Maybe, this being Quebec, you’ll just have it all. It’s the closest North America gets to Europe, and couldn’t be more delectable.
