We arrived in Montreal and we wanted to spend the first night in the heart of the city with some Montreal luxury. Loews Hotel Vogue is centrally located in the Golden Square Mile and within walking distance to some of the best restaurants and shopping that the city has to offer. During the day, we explored Rue Sainte-Catherine. In the evening, we warmed up at the hotel in our suite’s jetted bath tub and slept soundly in the king bed. Athena had her own space in the living room on the full-sized sleeper bed. At night, we left the curtains open and soaked up the lights from the city. Loews was the ideal place to start our Montreal adventure off on the right foot.
I knew we had a suite but that doesn’t always mean separate sleeping areas. When I walked into the room, I thought the sofa at the foot of the bed was the additional sleeper sofa, but the adjoining doors led to an entirely different living room area with a tv, sleeper sofa, full bathroom, and separate entrance. It was large enough to be a whole other suite. We were in heaven.
Athena was given a bath robe from the hotel along with a cute little pair of Loews slippers. She got cozy in the robe and watched tv after a day of flying. I was feeling a little cold from the temperature change so I had something else in mind to warm up.
I filled up the jetted tub and poured in a bottle of suds. Athena’s treat was the robe but my treat was a bottle of red wine. I poured a glass of wine and Athena and I hopped in the tub together. While she made a beard out of the bubbles, I enjoyed my wine. We were warm in no time.
We took a walk around the corner to find poutine. I love it so much I considered finding a place to get it before even going to the hotel but I held off to have it for dinner. There were lots of options around the hotel so I asked a staff member at the front desk and he suggested his favorite place within walking distance from the hotel.
Once we were snuggled into bed, I watched the turquoise lights on a building across the streets. They lulled me to sleep (or maybe it was the huge king bed with warm blankets.)
There are dining options at the hotel but we decided to take another walk down Rue Sainte-Catherine to find breakfast. The freshly fallen snow and “dragon-breath” temperatures appeal to us and the bustling street was exciting. Loews was such a great starting point.
We only had one night of Montreal luxury at Loews Hotel Vogue but it was enough to refresh my memory for the streets in Montreal and get us excited for the next week to come. We have a great line-up of experiences that include a city tour, skating, unique dining options, and stunning vista points. We’re now ready to tackle the city after a rejuvenating night at Loews.
