MONTREAL — The Four Seasons Hotel Montreal announced that it will officially open on May 8.
“We can’t wait to receive our local community, as well as world travellers, into our luxury ecosystem for the full Four Seasons experience, right in downtown Montreal,” says Gonçalo Monteiro general manager, Four Seasons Hotel Montreal. “With summer and all its great festivals and events just around the corner, spring is the perfect time for us all to enjoy Montreal’s trendsetting style and culture.”
With interiors designed by Paris-based Gilles & Boissier in collaboration with Montreal-based architect and designer Philip Hazan, the lobby of Four Seasons Hotel Montreal features white marble, gold elevators and pink and grey velvet walls.
Situated on the hotel’s third-floor lobby level is the Social Square, an open-concept series of spaces where Montrealers can mix with international visitors. The Social Square includes the new Marcus Restaurant + Terrace and Marcus Bar + Lounge — a new brasserie concept and the first Canadian restaurant by chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, focal points will be sustainable seafood, a raw bar, local vegetables and grains as the culinary team works closely with local producers and growers.
“I couldn’t be more excited to finally be opening here at Four Seasons Hotel Montreal,” says Samuelsson. “It’s amazing to become a part of this neighbourhood and to debut in Canada for the first time. We want everyone to feel at home with us as they explore our flavours, dynamic vibe, and culinary perspective.”
Originally announced in 2016, the 169-room hotel will feature direct access to the adjacent Holt Renfrew Ogilvy; an intimate spa and state-of-the-art fitness centre; a skylit indoor pool; and a fifth-floor ballroom with outdoor terrace. The hotel will also feature special programs for parents and pets, and luxury valet service.
