I'm off to Montreal next week and looking forward to spending one of my nights at the new Opus Montreal. Formerly the Hotel Godin, one of Montreal's premier boutique hotels, it was purchased by Trilogy Properties Corp. They're the folks who own the highly acclaimed Opus Hotel in Vancouver, along with Adara Whistler Hotel.
The 1914 Art Nouveau style hotel features the Opus Bar, a stylish lounge serving up cool cocktails and tasty tapas, with live music from the city's best DJ's. A restaurant is scheduled to open in 2008.
Opus Montreal blends modern design with a nod to history. With 136 guest rooms done up in sleek minimalist style, there is no shortage of luxurious comfort. Amenities include French or English morning newspapers, Frette' bathrobes, L'Occitane bath products and twice daily maid service.
Located on the corner of Sherbrooke and St. Laurent, the hotel is steps from the entertainment district and minutes from Vieux Montreal and Le Plateau Mont-Royal.
