luxe - LHotel, Montreal

In the heart of old Montreal sits a dazzling contemporary art museum that lets you stay for the night.

If the idea of living in an art museum, even for a short spell, sounds appealing, LHotel Montreal may be your ideal.

LHotel boasts Warhols, Lichtensteins, Stellas, Rauschenbergs, Rosenquists, Chagalls, and Miros as part of what is acknowledged as the largest private contemporary art collection in North America, making Qatar Airways’ new association all the more relevant given the country’s status as the world’s pre-eminent contemporary art buyer. Roam LHotel’s hallways and you don’t know what you might see, from prints to sculptures, made to look all the more majestic by high ceilings.

The service is unanimously praised, with an attentive, upbeat staff nuanced in the small touches such as offering espresso to waiting guests, and birthday cupcakes. The rooms complement the art with wrought iron and brass, polished woods, and bevelled glass.

Several rooms are named for the artists and feature their work, with the Roy Lichtenstein (King) Suite also housing a private steam sauna. The in-house cultural curator is on hand to extend the creative experience outside the walls of the hotel.
