If you and your beau are looking to enjoy a nice, long romantic getaway before you say I do, look no further than the Hotel Monville. Located in the heart of downtown Montreal, Hotel Monville offers guests a memorable yet affordable stay. Within walking distance to the cities top sites, restaurants, shops, museums and more, you'll never run out of things to do no matter what interests you and your significant other.
Whether you come by plane, train or car, we recommend arriving on Thursday afternoon so you have 3 full days to explore the city. This will allow you to get fully checked-in and unpacked in one of Hotel Monville's modern, yet cozy rooms. After freshening up a bit, head downstairs to Bar Monville to enjoy a nice cocktail during happy hour after a long (or short) day of travel. Then head out on the town for a scrumptious dinner. If you like authentic Italian, you'll want to head to Fiorellino Snack Bar, just a short 2 minute walk from the hotel. Fiorellino Snack Bar is a lively, stylish Italian bistro dishing out Neapolitan pizza, pasta, small plates, wine and cocktails.
After a good night's rest, wake up and start your day by heading up to the 20th floor which features a panoramic view of Montreal. Here you can take part in a 45-minute Vinyasa Flow yoga class on the terrace taught by instructors from Yoga Vieux Montreal. There's honestly no better way to start your day in our opinion! Be sure to check the class schedule to confirm a class is going on the weekend you're visiting. If yoga isn't your thing, that's okay because Hotel Monville has a 24/7 gym.
Following your energetic yoga class, get ready to explore the city of Montreal with your fiance. Hotel Monville knows the city like the back of their hand and they can't wait to give you a few pointers, so do not hesitate to not only browse their website for places to visit within walking distance or ask the concierge's desk.
