A busy hotel with a seductive ambiance.
Sometimes a hotel becomes more than just a place to sleep. It becomes a destination. Le Centre Sheraton is one of those rare exceptions for a variety of reasons. First off, the grand, old-style lobby buzzes with energy. Bell-hops switch seamlessly from French to English depending on the guest and business travelers hold impromptu meetings on the cushy sofas. Also on the ground floor is Le Café Bar, a large, open space serving lunch, dinner and cocktails. Bookshelves, dark hardwood flooring and candle-lit tables create an inviting ambiance. The big leather chairs add to the intimacy by enveloping diners and those sipping drinks. The bar attracts large after-work crowds and is also a good dining option. Rooms only continue with the seduction. Large headboards, sprawling mattresses and plush furnishings put a premium on class and comfort. On the sixth floor are an indoor lap pool, sauna, whirlpool, fitness center and massage service. By the way, Le Centre has a superb downtown location–--close to Chinatown, Old Montréal and some of the city’s best shops and galleries. That is, if you plan leaving the hotel at all.
