MONTREAL — W Hotels Worldwide unveiled on Sept. 24 the restyled rooms and suites of W Montréal, the first full-scale renovation of the hotel’s 152 guestrooms and suites since the property opened in 2004.

Reimagined by Starwood’s design team, the renovation reflects the duality of Montreal, where historic culture meets a cosmopolitan scene.

The city’s Francophile nature is implied through deconstructed French neoclassical elements such as chevron patterns in walnut and brass tables.

Guests are first greeted by gold accents in the corridors, which speak to the building’s former life as a bank. Guestroom bathrooms and fitting areas feature mirrored closet doors that open up to become tri-fold dressing mirrors and interiors that provide space to organize and display one’s wardrobe. 

The focal point of each room and suite is the cocktail corner and Mix Bar. Bathed in light, backed by mirrors and highlighted by a yellow accent, the bar is a freestanding focal point in many of the rooms and suites. 

Other highlights include television units rendered in mirror and shaped like a fireplace mantel, as well as Artemide Tolomeo lamps framed in ceiling medallions and mounted vertically on mirrored surfaces to create nightstands and desk lamps.
