Residence Inn by Marriott Montreal Downtown to Begin Multi-Million Dollar Renovation

MONTREAL, Oct. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Gearing up to begin an extensive multi-million dollar renovation, the Residence Inn by Marriott® Montreal Downtown has temporarily closed its doors, effective October 1st.  The renovation work will be conducted around-the-clock to revitalize the hotel's guest rooms and public spaces.  Located in downtown Montreal's business district, the Residence Inn Montreal Downtown is scheduled for a soft reopening in January 2014.

Renovations will include a complete redesign and replacement of the building's façade. The hotel's new modern exterior design will enrich the aesthetic appeal of the entire block. When the hotel reopens, guests will experience a fully redesigned public space including a bright and inviting new lobby area, Hearth Room® that serves complimentary breakfast daily, and a fully-equipped fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment.  In addition to the revitalized public space, the renovations will include the addition of two floors to accommodate 20 new guest rooms, for a total of 210 rooms.

The Residence Inn Montreal Downtown's guest rooms are currently 50% larger than typical Montreal hotel rooms and will remain just as spacious after the renovations. Our rooms are exceptional in downtown Montreal and are ideally suited to the needs and tastes of extended-stay business travelers. These guests appreciate the comfort, familiarity and healthy-living benefits of being able to prepare their own meals in an efficient, modern kitchen.

"The Residence Inn Montreal Downtown has long distinguished itself by offering extended-stay guests many of the comforts of home. Once our extensive renovations are complete, we will further leverage these benefits by continuing to offer spacious rooms that have been completely refurbished, including modern decor, new upscale kitchen appliances, luxurious mattresses and new windows offering more natural lighting and noise reduction. Our hotel will be the leading extended stay option for business travelers in downtown Montreal," says Scott Allison, Vice President of Canadian Operations for Marriott Hotels of Canada.

The Residence Inn Montreal Downtown is located in the heart of downtown Montreal's business district and in walking distance to Old Montreal, popular attractions and shopping. The hotel is scheduled for a soft-open with select rooms in January 2014 and will fully reopen in May 2014. The reservation system will remain operational throughout the renovations and guests may book rooms for January at their convenience.
