Centrally located in the heart of Old Montréal, the property has 177 guestrooms, including five suites, a signature restaurant fusing Québec and British cuisines, a rooftop pool (slated for summer 2023), as well as four fully-equipped meeting and event facilities encompassing nearly 5,000 square feet.
“Montréal and particularly the neighbourhood of Old Montréal offers an experience unlike most destinations in North America, as it boasts European flair and offers countless local and international events annually, making it an ideal location for this milestone opening,” said Don Lougheed, regional vice president, franchise operations and sales, Hyatt. “As part of the evolution of a dynamic neighbourhood rich with history, Hyatt Centric Ville-Marie Montréal is housed within the Place Gare Viger development, infusing new life into a deep-rooted and profound part of the city.”
Place Gare Viger is a multi-use development taking shape around Place Viger, one of Canada’s first railway stations and the historic terminus for the Canadian Pacific Railway. Drawing inspiration from the French château-design of the station, Place Gare Viger includes office spaces, a retail selection, a residential complex, and now, Hyatt Centric Ville-Mare Montréal.
Every aspect of the design at Hyatt Centric Ville-Marie Montréal has been curated to showcase its local inspirations, iconography and culture. The building façade – comprised of Normand brick, white polished concrete, and zinc metal – is influenced by the neighbouring chateau, historic church roofs in the area and the iconographic clock tower on the waterfront.
Additionally, the lobby of Hyatt Centric Ville-Marie Montréal is inspired by the Jacques Cartier Bridge, with metal arches and wood paneling. The lobby also includes Terrazzo floor tiles and railway-inspired artwork.
Hyatt Centric Ville-Marie guestrooms feature a creative, compact design with multifunctional elements, including a 55” flat-screen HDTV, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, blackout curtains, a minifridge, keyless entry operated through the World of Hyatt app, and much more. The hotel’s 600-square-foot suites are each furnished with a king bed, separate living area and workspace, a 60” flat-screen HDTV, and picture windows with views of Square Dalhousie.
The property’s multiple meeting and event spaces are equipped with the latest in audio-visual hybrid technology supplied by Encore Global. The four meeting venues are located on the hotel’s main level and feature floor-to-ceiling fenestration allowing views of the city or the interior courtyard.
The hotel’s onsite restaurant, Cartier Arms by the Burgundy Lion Group, serves Québécois-British fusion fare with handcrafted cocktails. Cartier Arms includes a 130-seat restaurant, 30-person terrace, and 20-person private dining room.
