Griffintown Hotel, apartment kitchen and lobby side-by-side

MONTREAL — Griffintown Hotel is opening its doors in Montreal. Touted as the first concept of its kind in the city, this apartment-hotel is designed to provide its guests with a vivid “neighbourhood-type” experience within the city’s Griffintown district — located between the downtown core and Old Montreal.

The new hotel will offer complete one- and two-bedroom condo-style apartments (395 to 845 sq. ft.) — a concept that has proven itself internationally. Each apartment features a full kitchen, living room and one or two bathrooms and are designed to comfortably accommodate up to five adults for a long stay.

“Launching a new apartment-hotel concept in the midst of a pandemic is quite a challenge, but we believe it demonstrates the need for an essential service like ours,” says Laura-Michèle Grenier Martin, general manager of Griffintown Hotel. “Our vision is perfectly in tune with today’s reality. We offer a safe and autonomous environment while providing hotel standards and services.”

Hotel amenities include a 24-hour reception and security service and an indoor garage.

A take-out section reserved exclusively for hotel guests is located on the ground floor, offering gourmet takeaway meals and a selection of local products for cooking. Additionally, the hotel’s sister business, the Café-crèmerie-dépanneur GH, offers everyday commodities just a block away from the hotel. Reception staff also deliver orders to the rooms.

Because it is opening its doors in the midst of a pandemic, Griffintown Hotel’s usual health-and-sanitation standards have been enhanced. A number of additional measures have been put in place, including a two-step apartment-preparation process, which includes disinfection using dry-vapour equipment commonly found in hospitals. In addition, all the condo-apartments have their own independent ventilation system. Finally, a 24-hour delay between bookings is respected in order to assure visitors’ safety.
