MUST-STAY: Toronto, Montreal & Quebec

Updated: Jan 22, 2019

Looking for your next staycation, getaway weekend or simply a stay for your next trip, here are three different options in three different cities sure to satisfy all your needs.

Bisha Hotel

Toronto, Ontario.

Located in the heart of downtown Toronto's Entertainment District, the 44-storey hotel designed by Wallman Architects, sets an entirely new standard for elegance. The man and powerhouse behind Toronto’s newest high-end private-label boutique hotel and residences, none other than the restaurateur and nightclub king, Charles Khabouth. With the interior spaces designed by Alessandro Munge of Studio, and the hotel’s 9th floor designed by celebrity icon Lenny Kravitz and his firm, Kravitz Design Inc, Bisha's outstanding decor will surely make your stay memorable.

Bisha Hotel houses 3 restaurants, a lobby bar and a rooftop infinity pool with one of the best views of the city. Each uniquely styled guest room features free Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV. Additional amenities include a coffee maker, a hairdryer and complimentary BYREDO toiletries. For guests wanting to discover everything TO has to offer, the hotel is only 500 m away from the famous CN Tower, 400 m from the Rogers Centre and 1.5 km from the Air Canada Centre. The Bisha hotel has been a favourite of mine ever since my first visit. Its exquisite and impeccable decor, attention to detail and opulent atmosphere is nothing short to make you fall in love with Bisha.

Loews Hotel Vogue

Montreal, Quebec.

Loews Hotel Vogue is located in downtown Montreal, just around the corner from Ste-Catherine Street. Perfect for guests looking to be in the proximity of great restaurants, stores and shopping malls. Each spacious room offers a decor reminiscent of the hotel’s name with framed vintage Vogue covers.

The attention to detail to the design when it comes to the bathrooms and additional vanities makes getting ready in style easy and will be greatly appreciated by guests getting ready for a special event. The Loews Hotel Vogue also offers in-room spa services. Looking for exceptional breakfast, lunch and dinner options, Loews Hotel Vogue also includes La Société offering Parisian bistro-style cuisine.

Hotel 71

Quebec, Quebec.

Housed in a 19th-century grey stone building in the heart of Quebec’s Old Port, Hotel 71 blends historic charm with modern amenities. Once the head office of the National Bank of Canada, as one of the tallest buildings in the area, it provides excellent views of the St. Lawrence River from its upper levels and some of Quebec City’s most astounding perspectives on Place-Royale and the Château Frontenac. Discover the charming shops, cafes, gourmet restaurants, art galleries, the Museum of Civilization, Quartier Petit Champlain, Old Port, and the Funicular to Upper Town, all located moments away from the hotel. 

Upon arrival, the refined decor ensures a warm welcome. Grand, lavish and spacious, the lobby features an intimate sitting area with comfy couches, a stunning candle setting, and beautiful bookshelves. The star of the lobby is undeniably the self-serve grand-cru wine bar – open until 3 AM, which I think every guest can agree, is very convenient!  Providing a boutique experience par excellence, this 60-room hotel offers contemporary rooms with a wealth of amenities: a Nespresso machine, a mini-refrigerator, a desk, free Wi-Fi, iPod docking, surround-sound system, a flat-screen TV, crisp white bedding, a plush feather duvet, an abundance of natural light and 4 m-high ceilings. The minimalist rooms provide guests with exceptional comfort and a decadent and spacious bathroom that features glassed-in rainfall showers, robes, and upscale L’Occitane products – which we absolutely love! I had the chance to stay in one of the lofts which are open spaces with generous windows highlighting the incredible Château Frontenac.

Your next memorable stay awaits!
