Montreal’s Le Meridien Versailles, part deux…

The second 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.  A major renovation has paid off handsomely at the hotel (the first was completed in 2016 by Starwood, now a part of Marriott.)

The most significant changes are obvious as soon as you enter the hotel.  The front desk has been repositioned and the wall behind its former location removed, making the newly designed bar and restaurant, Maiolo, stand out.


The combined lobby and restaurant entrance feature sitting areas that invite relaxing and chatting with friends, all while enjoying the excellent food, drink and service the staff provide.  In particular, Maiolo owners Vito and Giovanni are dedicated, engaging and effortlessly had the patrons dining together and enjoying their meals as one large family rather than groups of strangers―not a small accomplishment considering the myriad nationalities involved, i.e., Argentine, Brazilian, Italian and Japanese.
