Montréal, Québec (Vocus) August 27, 2009 –-
Whether arriving, departing, in for a business trip or traveling for leisure, the Montréal Airport Marriott is the newest place to be and be seen. Revving up for its late summer opening, the full-service hotel, a division of Marriott Hotels & Resorts Canada is creating 200 new jobs while establishing an exciting destination for locals, visitors, business and leisure travelers.

The Montréal Airport Marriott joins the ranks of high-caliber international airport hotels featuring state-of-the-art facilities in an ultra comfortable environment. Boasting 279 beautifully appointed guestrooms and suites, the hotel offers the luxury of room-to-gate access to Montréal-Trudeau Airport from its comfortable, modish Great Room lobby to the understated elegance of its Bijou Resto I Bar, through to its innovative hourly-rentable interview rooms, the hotel’s allure is its worldly ambiance and world-renown hospitality. “We’re very excited to offer corporate and leisure visitors the ideal location, directly connected indoors to the airport,” says Brenda Rodricks, General Manager. “No more worries for holiday travelers catching early morning flights and no more traveling time and shuttle service needed for corporate travelers, for whom time and efficiency is of the essence in this fast paced world.”
The experience of this new Montreal Airport hotel begins in the Great Room lobby of the hotel – an escalator ride away from the new U.S. departures terminal – where people can gather to enjoy the unique 5-10-20-minute menu that offers visitors a chance to eat at their preferred length of time. This is the place to relax on casual lounge-style seating and enjoy an Italian-brewed espresso served from illy Espressemente Café/Patisserie, the brand’s first Montreal-based stand-alone coffee shop. Guests can benefit from complimentary high-speed internet while enjoying a meal or sipping an aperitif in the Great Room or in Bijou Resto I Bar.
Off the Great Room, locals will embrace the sophisticated menu offered in the hotel’s upscale Bijou Resto I Bar. Event planners will delight in the selection of meeting rooms offering over 14,000 square feet of meeting, exhibit, reception and pre-function space all on one floor. With 20 flexible meeting rooms, 7 of which highlight floor-to-ceiling windows outfitted with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, the light shines naturally on the endless opportunities for special events. In addition, discover two interview rooms that can be booked by the hour or a luxurious 6,905 square foot ballroom. But perhaps the most innovative spaces are the glass-clad floating boardrooms that offer panoramic views.
