A city in lights awaits you during your stay

Old Montreal’s idyllic streets are transformed at night with gorgeous light installations and fixtures. 

Cité mémoire is a new addition representing one of the largest urban lighting installations in the world. Witness Montreal’s iconic history projected on the walls of Old Montreal’s French inspired buildings. Let the app guide you through the cobblestone streets and watch history come to life! 

Cité Mémoire is available in winter on Fridays and Saturdays when the night falls.

Head towards the St. Lawrence to see the famous Jacques-Cartier Bridge illuminated. Created by Montreal’s very own Moment Factory for Montreal ‘s 375th Anniversary,, this wondrous light show changes colours depending on the season and is a must-see! 

Montreal’s fifth edition of Lights Over Old Montreal comprises 14 different Christmas displays spread across the old port until January 5th 2023. These include jaw dropping illuminated sculptures, christmas trees and more. Check out this map to ensure you catch them all. Our luxury hotel in Old Montreal is perfectly located to enjoy all of these bright sights!

A view of the city awaits on La Grande Roue de Montréal

We highly recommend taking a spin on the highest observation wheel in Canada in our very own Old Port. Reaching a height of 60 metres, every 20-minute rotation offers 360-degree views that span 28 kilometres on a clear day. You may be wondering why we are suggesting this in the middle of winter, well, each of the 42 luxurious gondolas is climate-controlled! That’s right, not even the snow can stop you from enjoying the views. La Grande Roue de Montréal can be easily located in the Old Port as it is fully illuminated at night. When you stay at The Saint-Sulpice Hotel, one of the best hotels in Old Montreal, it is just a short walk away. 

From all of us here at The Saint-Sulpice Hotel Montreal, happy holidays and happy New Year!

Ideas for a local trip

Go away this winter or plan to ‘travel locally’ in Old Montreal.

“Local Trip “– this new expression took on its full meaning this summer when travelling abroad was suspended and we learned how to rediscover our Province and its tourist attractions. It’s true that you don’t have to travel very far to feel disoriented and have the feeling of having gone far away from home! Sometimes getting out of your house to go for a fun walk or do something that you don’t normally do is enough. Spending a night or two in a hotel to enjoy your own city and discover it from a tourist’s perspective is part of it.

These small touches make all the difference.

‘Local crafts, ‘local commerce’ or even ‘local partner’ have also become the watchwords in this pandemic, and it is important for us to honor these actors who make Montreal, our city, so alive and attractive.

At the hotel, we have always worked with local merchants. That’s why today, I’ve decided to talk to you about some of our local partners in Old Montreal who contribute to the everyday SoSulpice! experiences we offer at the hotel. So, I invite you to discover what you might come upon on your next ‘local trip’ in Old Montreal! Enjoy your visit!

First of all, I would like to present you, for those who do not know of it, our favourite boutique located 2 steps from the hotel: le Magasin Général du Vieux Montréal. We love them so much that some of their products dress up our hotel windows.

This shop is, for me, a real cabinet of curiosities! It is full of gift ideas, decorative items, souvenir gifts from Montreal, jewelry, and trendy accessories such as bags and scarves – all at affordable prices! Nicole, the owner, carefully choses her suppliers and artisans to showcase their creation and their local know-how.

Le Scandinave Spa du Vieux Montréal, 71 Rue de la Commune O, Montréal

The current situation and the season are finally inviting us to take care of ourselves and our loved ones! Our routine is upset by the changes that we’ve been experiencing for the last 6 months. We aspire to take care of ourselves, and above all, to take the time to do so. So, why not put a wellness break in your calendar? You deserve it!

I suggest a local trip to the country of wellness just a stone throw’s away from the hotel: Scandinave Spa . Currently, we do not have access to the baths (as per gouvernement guidelines), but you do have access to a massage. In a subdued and relaxing atmosphere, the massage therapists offer you a whole menu of massages: from 60 to 120 minutes, Swedish, Therapeutic, Deep Tissue, even Lomi Atsu massage… choose your formula and let yourself be immersed with the delicate scent of eucalyptus. Now is the time to relax your muscles, your back, release the pressure, and just not think about anything.Add a massage to your local trip at le saint-sulpice hotel Montreal. SoSulpice experience!

And for all Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel guests, benefit from a SoSulpice! Reduction. Contact our Concierge Team to find out more.

Our suites are made for that! Spacious and warm, you will quickly feel at home. Well… even better than at home! ‘Travelling locally’ is the pleasure of having a getaway close to home. Treat yourself to a change of scenery by allowing yourself a break near your home. Without having to travel far away from home, you can take advantage of a hotel stay to break your at-home routine!

Enjoy a deluxe suite with fireplace during your stay in Montreal at le saint-sulpice hotel. SoSulpice!eplace

No need to go grocery shopping, prepare a meal, just have it delivered to your room! Many restaurants offer a variety of menus: from a simple meal to a more gourmet formula. Our Concierges can direct you to the best addresses in the neighborhood.

My advice: book a suite with a fireplace. Comfortably seated on the sofa, bask in the warmth of an electric fireplace, and take the time read or watch your favourite movie or series.
