It’s Holiday season in Old Montreal
The Holiday magic is back at Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel Montréal!
Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel Montréal has put on its brightest lights! Shining trees and colourful Christmas decorations have been placed in our front windows, to welcome curious souls. Do not hesitate to come in for a visit and have a seat next to the warm fireplace. There, you will find our gold and silver-coloured Christmas tree, which will enchant young and old.
Before Santa comes to town…
For all to enjoy, Old Montreal is the ideal place to stay this Holiday season. Its cobblestones streets, its Christmas decorations all along Saint-Paul Street as well as its horse-carriage rides (when the mild weather allows it), make Old Montreal the perfect place to wander around during Christmas time.
Holiday decorations: Our favorites
Only 2 minutes away from Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel: One of our favorites this Holiday season is the beautiful tree of shinning lights in front of the Notre-Dame Basilica. Its white lights stand together in perfect harmony with the blue angel lights hanging from the Basilica. In fact, photos of this tree have been shared numerous times on social media by photographers and amateurs. Other decorations not to miss in Old Montreal are the white fairy lights that illuminate Saint-Paul Street from one end to the other. While you walk along, they will make you feel like you’re in a Christmas movie.
Holiday season makes us hungry!
When the winter and cold settles in, who doesn’t love a good hearty meal with his family and friends around a large table? Turkey, foie gras, beef stew or a Quebec classic, Grandma’s meat pie. It’s exactly what inspired the Chef of Restaurant Sinclair when he prepared his Holiday menu. With a blend of local products and a French inspiration, it’s a menu that foodies will feast on. For example, the duck parmentier with iced maple Nantaises or the oven-seared bison steak from Quebec with its sautéed porcini mushrooms and black truffle oil are items on the menu to taste without a doubt.
After dinner, what should we do?
Old Montreal is animated: activities for all
Apart from dinner with the family, you must be wondering what are the best activities to do in Old Montreal during this Holiday season. With our loved-one, our friends or our family, there are enough activities for all to enjoy. Every year, our guests count on the expertise of our Concierges Clefs d’Or to recommend cultural, gourmet and fun activities to do around the hotel.
This year, from December 1st 2016 to January 1st 2017, Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel Montréal is lucky to be in the center of the action during Merry Montreal, happening just a few minutes away. Wander around the cobblestone streets of the neighborhood and visit the Christmas market on Place Jacques-Cartier, where you will find gifts, treats and discoveries from Quebec microbreweries.
You may also assist to one of their outdoor Holiday flicks, presented in French with English subtitles. Come watch some Holiday classics under a warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate. On the menu: karaoke, come meet Santa, photo workshops and many more…
Also, do not miss out on the New Year’s party which will be held on Place Jacques-Cartier. Fireworks, performances and special guests will all be part of the show.
What is Christmas like at Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel Montréal?
We all have different plans during this Holiday season. Some prefer to take vacations away from the cold, many Quebecers also have the tradition of spending Christmas at the cottage, away from the city.
A typical evening at Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel would look a lot like this: First, gather around a cozy fireplace with a nice glass of wine in one of our suites. Then, head down to dinner at the Sinclair for a hearty Christmas meal.
And finally, why not end with an nightly excursion in the Old Montreal neighbourhood? Take a ride on the Bonsecours outdoor skating rink or finish off the evening by warming up at one of the Holiday hot spots with a nice cup of hot chocolate… Ah… The wonderful joy of Christmas.
How about you? What are your plans for the Holidays?
