W Montréal stands at the intersection of creativity and commerce. One of the city’s coolest hotels is located in the historic Banque du Canada building, on Square Victoria Park. Local DJs spin at the lounge on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, while mixologists show off their creativity with artisanal cocktails. Guests can borrow CDs from the hotel’s media library and enjoy the Bliss amenities and rainforest showers before retiring to what are arguably the city’s most comfortable beds.
When in Montreal, if you want to indulge there’s no better place to visit than the Away Spa Montreal at the chic W Hotel. Deep in the hotel’s basement in Old (Vieux) Montreal, you’ll quickly forget the world aboveground — a blissful oasis away from it all. If she’s available, you’ll want to book with Yolanta who will knead all the knots and stress away. As she’s a registered massage therapist (RMT), those with extended health plans should even be able to claim the treatment. Bonus! Beyond massage, the spa offers a full menu of other treatments.
