When one thinks big-city business centre, boutique accommodations, stunning river views and chic art galleries don’t often come to mind. But more and more these days, Old Montreal’s surfacing as the premier district for corporate group stays.
Balancing business sensibilities with all the perks of a luxury getaway, Old Montreal offers today’s corporate travellers a taste of everything. Here are just a few advantages:
Locale: Renowned nightlife, unique cuisine and no shortage of friendly faces—you’re in the heart of it all. The city’s centre and business district are only steps away while meeting spaces equipped to accommodate any size function dot the area. During off time, consider a group outing. Old Montreal’s the epicentre of sporting and leisure activities, perfect for team building. If you’re travelling in the winter, dog sledding, snowshoeing and ice skating excursions are among the most popular. And come summer, the Old Port plays host to some of the world’s most renowned music and arts festivals.
Ambiance: Old Montreal maintains its ranking as a top commercial and hospitality hub by harnessing the very best in the service industry. Anything can be personalized and everything’s always at your team’s disposal. And while there’s so much to do, the area also embraces a very laid-back, relaxed climate that’s miles away from the urbane hurriedness you find in most other big city districts. The temperament’s often been referred to as “European” but more aptly, it’s a tone that’s distinctly Old Montreal. Your hard-working team will breathe easy.
