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.

Sustainable development program

In november, we collect in favour of CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation

The organism supported by Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel Montreal through its Green Program is the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation.

Guests staying at the hotel in the month of November are asked to opt out of their site housekeeping service during their stay. For each refusal, the hotel donates $5 to the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation and thus contributes financially to the many actions deployed to provide excellent care to mothers and children. Through this action, our guests also contribute to a collective effort to reduce GHGs.

collecte siant sulpice hotel montréal pour la fondation CHU ste justine pour une meilleure santé des bébés

Marc-André Dandeneau, General Manager of Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel Montreal, explains the reasons for his choice to support this CHU Sainte-Justine foundation.

‘November 20, 2022 will be the International Children’s Day.  The well-being of children is very relative from one country to another.  Not all children have the chance to grow up safely or have access to all the resources they need to thrive.  In Canada, there is also a great disparity between regions and many children grow up in poverty.  We must ensure that, at the grassroots level, children have the right to the same level of education and have access to a good health system. I chose the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation because they make sure to offer quality pediatric care to children from all backgrounds without judgment.’


Collect of le saint-sulpice hotel montreal for the benefit of CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation

Guided by its engagement, solidarity, authenticity and responsible leadership, the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation’s mission is to engage the community and support the CHU Sainte-Justine in its pursuit of excellence and its commitment to providing children and mothers with one of the highest levels of health care in the world, now and in the future.

Since its beginnings in 1987, the Foundation has been engaging the community to make the CHU Sainte-Justine what it is today and what it will be tomorrow: a world-class university health centre that is building a healthier future for mothers and children.

The foundation regularly launches major donation campaigns to support health projects for children and their mothers.

We are happy to be able to contribute on our scale to tomorrow’s projects for better health for all children who have to deal with the disease.

We thank you in advance for your contribution!

The Best Guided Tours in Montreal

Montreal, a city full of history

Montreal, this beautiful island filled with history. But how do we get to know her in only a few days? By living here, we get to know her little by little. In the winter, she is cold and calm. In the spring, she flowers and in the summer, she is festive and animated. Without forgetting fall when she exposes her prettiest colours before she goes back to sleep for the winter. Montreal, this city that just celebrated its 375th anniversary is rich in history, gastronomy, culture and art. But how do we get to know her when you are just passing by? Guided tours are simple and fun ways to discover the city the fastest way possible.

Only a few steps away from Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel, located in the heart of Old Montreal’s history, we can find many ways to discover this charming city: By foot for the curious, by bus for those in a hurry, at night for the night owls, by bike for the adventurers, or through gastronomy for the foodies. No matter how you wish to discover Montreal, all ways are possible. We list a few of the best guided tours in Montreal here.

Historic Tours

Montreal Ghosts

If you are looking for a guided tour that will make you go through all sorts of emotions at nightfall, all while telling you sordid stories, legends and criminal intrigues, Montreal Ghosts is the ideal tour for you. Located a few steps away from Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel, this tour offered by Guidatour will make you live a unique and memorable experience.

Cité Mémoire

Since the beginning of the year, Montréal en Histoires was able to created a unique and interactive walking tour, all for free. By downloading the free app, discover Old Montreal through more than 20 outdoor displays in the form of images, lyrics and music. These projections tell the stories of different characters who witnessed the evolution of the city through time. Cité Mémoire, is, also, only a few steps away from the hotel and is available every evening from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Montréal à la loupe

No matter how old we are, riddles and puzzles have always known to wake the child in us. Montréal à la loupe is a track game which will awaken the detective in you and help you discover the city through 3 different games: Robbery in Old Montreal, Mystery at the Casino (Plateau Mont-Royal), or threat in the underground. In a team, you will need to solve a puzzle where the hints can be found in the different pieces of public art of the city. Our team recently tried it, and we highly recommend it!

Underground City and Downtown

Our guests are always intrigued to find out “What is this underground city that everybody talks about?” They hear about it so often back home that it becomes a must on their list during their stay at Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel. Underground City by Guidatour is an urban excursion that will guide you through the streets of downtown and through the RÉSO (underground pedestrian network). You will be able to admire the artworks of Dorchester Square, pass by the big Ville-Marie tower or go shopping on the commercial street of Sainte-Catherine.

Bike Tours

What’s great about Montreal is its bike lane network that goes through the whole city, to Sainte-Hélène Island and beyond. In Montreal, it is possible to go from the North of the city and get to the South Shore, all on a bike lane. For adventurers and nature lovers, Montreal offers you two companies with which you will be able to discover Montreal all while riding a bike.

Montreal On Wheels

First of all, Montreal on Wheels, which is located less than a minute away from Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel Montréal, offers many guided bike tours, bike rentals and even bike lessons. Isn’t that great? They specialize mostly in tours around Old Montreal, the Lachine Canal and Sainte-Hélène Island/Jean-Drapeau Park.

Fitz & Follwell

Comparatively, Fitz & Follwell offer itineraries in the North of Montreal, in the South, or from North to South, allowing you to see the entire city. This family company that started in a home garage in 2008, concentrates on fun, informative and social tours.
