The hotel industry is changing with luxury, wow factors, modern technology, and even an inner-city ‘destination-in-its-own-right’ vibe all in the mix. After all, it’s easy to check off the tourist sites when you’re already staying in one of them.
Upmarket yet cosy, Hotel Monville reflects the city’s rich history and contemporary flavour. It has inviting public spaces and carefully designed guest suites, giving guests a distinct taste of Montreal.
ACDF Architecture designed the 269-room hotel located in the city’s downtown. This is the first in a collection of future properties envisioned by Nathaniel Fraiberger, whose intimate Hotel Gault introduced boutique hospitality to Old Montreal 17 years ago within the classic shell of a 1861 cotton warehouse building.
For new-built Hotel Monville, ACDF set out to create a destination that captures the local character and high-end experience of Hotel Gault, but with modern design elements developed for the Monville concept, says Maxime-Alexis Frappier, ACDF partner and lead designer.
“We have delivered that vision, providing Hotel Monville visitors and guests with individualistic experiences throughout the hotel,” he says.
