5 Montréal hotel fitness zones sure to please active attendees
When booking accommodations for your attendees, it’s important to keep tabs on in-house dining options, near-by cultural and sightseeing locations and proximity to your meeting site. But many travellers also expect gym and fitness areas close on-hand to not break their exercise routines while away from home. And as the Top Sports City (as ranked by the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance) it should come as little surprise that Montréal knows how to gym. Here’s 5 Montréal hotel fitness areas sure to keep your attendees on their toes and energized.
Omni Mont-Royal Hotel
1050 Sherbrooke Street West
Featuring one of the city’s largest hotel fitness area, when it comes to exercise the Omni Mont-Royal Hotel is all about accessibility and comfort. Based in the historic Golden Square Mile, your attendees will love the views while working out in the 24-hour gym area, or beating their personal record in the lap pool that’s open between May and October. Those looking to work out in the privacy of their rooms can request a Get Fit Kit from the front desk (including hand weights, elastic bands, towels and a floor mat) and there’s true relaxation waiting after a workout at the Eqlib Medispa, providing unforgettable treatments and pampering.
900 De La Gauchetière Street West
The Bonaventure Montréal goes above and beyond with its 2.5 acres of rooftop pool and garden area, perched atop Place Bonaventure business centre. After some laps in the pool, your attendees will love the relaxing downtown vistas or the hot tub and dry sauna facilities. The well-equipped gym is open 24 hours, accessible with a room key, and hotel staff can also suggest running routes around the city.
901 Square-Victroria Street
If you’re looking for stylish, look no further than the W Montréal. Full of the design touches that made the chain famous, that interior decoration flair continues into the FIT Fitness Center. Well-stocked with cardio equipment, free weights and pilates equipment, guests can also arrange for a personal training session with a top fitness professional via the hotel’s Whatever/Whenever service. The W’s location right on Square Victoria is also a great starting point for a jog along Old Montréal’s waterfront.
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth
900 René-Lévesque Blvd. West
One of the crown jewels of Montréal accommodations, the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth goes the extra mile in comfort and hospitality. The hotel’s renovated Wellness Centre offers 24 hour access to strength training, pilates and cardio equipment, as well as virtual classes including yoga. Forgot to pack your workout gear? Worry not! Le Club AccorHotels members can request Reebok shoes and workout apparel directly to their rooms. After working up a sweat, the Moments Spa offers the perfect way to wind down and relax.
Vogue Hotel Montreal Downtown
1425 de la Montagne Street
Called one of the “Top Hotels in Canada” by Condé Nast Traveler, the Vogue Hotel Montreal Downtown is as fashionable as its namesake publication suggests. Animal lovers traveling with pets will adore the specialized room service offerings for their four-legged friends, and the on-site refined dining options are sublime. The in-house gym includes cardio and strength-training machines, but your guests will particularly love the post-routine relaxation to be found in the whirlpool jacuzzi installed in every room of the hotel.
