MONTREAL, Oct. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - With direct access to Montréal-Trudeau Airport, the Montréal Airport Marriott opens today offering a convenient and stylish gateway to Montreal. The full-service hotel, a division of Marriott Hotels & Resorts Canada is an exciting destination for locals, visitors, business and leisure travelers. Showcasing a distinctively contemporary design fused with intuitive, traveler-smart services, it is the first full-service Marriott-managed property in Québec.
The Montréal Airport Marriott joins the ranks of high-caliber international airport hotels featuring state-of-the-art facilities in an ultra comfortable environment. Boasting 279 beautifully appointed guestrooms and suites, the hotel offers the luxury of room-to-gate access to Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. From its comfortable, modish Great Room lobby to the understated elegance of its Bijou Resto / Bar, through to its innovative hourly-rentable interview rooms, the hotel's allure is its worldly ambiance and world-renown hospitality. "We're very excited to offer corporate and leisure visitors the ideal location, directly connected indoors to the airport," says Brenda Rodricks, General Manager. "No more worries for holiday travelers catching early morning flights and no more traveling time and shuttle service needed for corporate travelers, for whom time and efficiency is of the essence in this fast paced world."
The experience of the Montréal Airport Marriott begins in the Great Room lobby of the hotel - an escalator ride away from the new U.S. departures terminal - where people can gather to enjoy the unique 5-10-20-minute menu that offers visitors a chance to eat at their preferred length of time. This is the place to relax on casual lounge-style seating and enjoy an espresso or cappuccino from espressamente illy, the brand's first espressamente illy coffee bar in Canada. Guests can benefit from complimentary high-speed internet while enjoying a meal or sipping an aperitif in the Great Room. Off the Great Room, locals will embrace the sophisticated menu offered in the hotel's upscale Bijou Resto / Bar.
Event planners will delight in the selection of meeting rooms offering over 14,000 square feet of meeting, exhibit, reception and pre-function space all on one floor. With 20 flexible meeting rooms, 7 of which highlight floor-to-ceiling windows outfitted with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, the light shines naturally on the endless opportunities for special events. In addition, discover two interview rooms that can be booked by the hour or a luxurious 6,905 square foot ballroom. But perhaps the most innovative spaces are the glass-clad floating boardrooms that offer panoramic views.
Contemporary furnished guestrooms and suites offering views of downtown Montréal or panoramic views of Trudeau International Airport runways will please even the most discerning traveler. The luxury starts with the Marriott Revive bedding guaranteeing a good night's rest, a work desk and ergonomic chair accessorized in every room and the enjoyment of a 32" LCD flat-screen television. The hotel offers 68 Concierge rooms on the top two floors that feature extra special amenities with access to a Concierge Lounge.
Located in the West Island only steps away from shopping, restaurants and entertainment, as well as a 20-minute drive to the heart of downtown, the Montréal Airport Marriott offers travelers unprecedented luxury with plenty of perks that are chic, fun and convenient.
