W Montréal

This past weekend I ventured off to Montréal for a quick getaway with friends and stayed at the trendy W Hotel. What I love about the W brand is that their hotels have a clean, young and sexy vibe and are always consistent no matter what city you stay in. Our room was spacious and modern with views facing the city. And let’s talk about the bedding! I always look forward to the beds at a W because it’s so comfortable (they’ve started selling the bedding because demand is so high)!This W location is covered in street art from popular local artists like What Is Adam and Stikki Peaches. They have several different bars and lounges staffed with mixologists who curate unique cocktails. The spa was also a perfect way to start the day off right – I received an hour deep-tissue massage (my fave) and felt rejuvenated to take on the day. Each morning we ordered a delicious kale, spirulina, almond milk and apple smoothie — I was thrilled to see this hotel had healthy options on the menu. But even though I’m a health fanatic, I admit that we also managed to find one of the most popular poutine spots in the city because you can’t go to Montréal and not try their famous dish! You might laugh, but we did manage to find a vegan version! Between the massages and smoothies (and yes, even squeezing in a workout in the art-inspired gym), the W kept me feeling refreshed all weekend long.Montréal is a beautiful vibrant city, full of delicious and unique restaurants, cool boutique stores, and clubs with some of the best DJs I have ever heard in any city. I highly recommend staying at the W if you visit Montréal. It’s in a central location downtown and will give you that unique experience to make your trip that much more special.
