The other week, Omar and I had the absolute TIME of our lives at Pride in Montreal. This was the third Pride march of my life and honestly, it wasn’t just a great party out in the streets. This Pride really impacted me in some pretty profound ways. The entire city of Montreal appeared to be out right smack dab in the middle of downtown, either marching or cheering from the sidelines, showing to the world yet again that our powerful community is here and ready to fight for our rights.
We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay with one of the official partners of Montreal Pride, Hotel Monville. Now, yes, this blog post is going to be about our stay with the hotel and some of our favorite features of it. Full disclosure, we did receive our stay with Hotel Monville on a complimentary basis, but this review of an incredibly LGBTQ+ friendly facility is completely honest.
Design & Aesthetics
OK if there are any interior designers out there who read my blog (lol if there are any?), you need to take a lesson or two from Hotel Monville. The hotel’s design was honestly what impressed us first as we walked through their GOORGE lobby and explored the space for the first time. I mean, check out this lobby y’all 😱
Stunning right!? The gold accents with all that brass and bright light just makes me feel all kinds of things ✨ The lobby comes with plenty of space (& outlets) if you need to get a little work done during your stay, a bar to have a wee drink or two after work, and a food bar with the most delish brekkie you’ll ever have. It’s legit called the Hangover Breakfast and honey, I’ll tell ya we had that more than once during our stay 😂
Alright, so I’m not going to on & on about the room we stayed in. We were fortunate enough to get assigned the corner suite of the hotel with craaaazy views of downtown Montreal 🙌🏼 It comes with everything you’d expect in a hotel like this (but TWO TVs instead of one because you can’t ever be too careful 😜📺). Check out this beaut of a room below:
Our Other Fav Things
I’ll quickly go through some of our other fav things that this hotel has to offer you if you so choose to stay there in the future (you deffo should, in case you haven’t gotten that vibe yet 😉). First of all, THERE’S A ROBOT THAT BRINGS YOU FOOD AND FUN THINGS.
Um yeah, you heard that right! 🤖 Hotel Monville comes fully equipped with a little robot butler who will bring around whatever the heck you’d like. All you have to do is order from the TV in your room and wait for the robot to give your room phone a ring when he arrives. Can someone tell me what century we’re in because everything I thought I knew about the world was a lie!?
Another one of our fav things about this hotel was the rooftop views. Like if you book a hotel hoping for the best views of the city, you ain’t going to be disappointed with the rooftop of Hotel Monville. You get sweeping views of downtown Montreal and holy crap, the sunsets from this kind of vantage point were INCREDIBLE 🌅
If you need a place to stay in Montreal, be sure to give Hotel Monville a look! Not only are you going to have the time of your life in this hotel, you’re going to be supporting an establishment that’s been incredibly supportive of the LGBTQ+ community 🏳️🌈
