The first of two parts. In Montréal, my hotel of choice is Le Meridien Versailles, located on Rue Sherbrooke, a few blocks from Rue Sainte-Catherine, one of the main commercial streets in the city. The hotel has easily become my home away from home with the credit belonging to the staff, from those who work at the front desk, to housekeeping, to the valet, Robert. The hotel’s location is ideal as it’s a few short blocks from one of the 747 Bus’ predetermined stops, and Guy Concordia’s metro station is right around the corner on Rue Saint Mathieu.
A second major renovation has paid off handsomely at the hotel (the first was completed in 2016 by Starwood, now a part of Marriott.) Contemporary carpeting, fabrics, furniture, lighting fixtures and wallpaper, along with a muted but sophisticated color palette, have given the hotel’s guest rooms a brand new look. One of the features I appreciated the most was the extra-large desk which nearly took up an entire wall. It had plenty of surface area for a laptop, multiple electrical outlets, storage space and USB ports. Although the desk featured ambient light from the large adjacent windows, it also had an LED desk lamp. Ridiculously slim, it gave off excellent but cool light.
As you would expect from Le Meridien, their Heavenly Series® of bed and bath linens are without equal.
