Nestled in the heart of Montreal’s Golden Square Mile, the 148-room Vogue Hotel Montreal Downtown, a Curio Collection by Hilton property, recently unveiled a redesign of its common spaces inspired by the grand hotel cultures of Asia and the Middle East.
Spearheaded by locally based Sid Lee Architecture, the transformation ushers in an elevated experience with soaring ceilings and abundant natural lighting that embrace the vibrancy of the surrounding city streets. “Each of the space’s finishes was chosen for its noble feel and handcrafted quality,” says principal partner Martin Leblanc. “The use of Turkish travertine nods to the recent owner’s heritage, while the Quebec-sourced white oak keeps the establishment grounded in local references.”
Bordered by the lobby’s floor-to-ceiling glass windows, Café Bazin, YAMA restaurant, and an open-concept lounge effortlessly meld with downtown Montreal. “The strategic placement of the F&B offerings along the hotel’s glass façade paired with independent entrances keeps it connected to its neighborhood and contributes to turning the renewed property into a hub of connectivity,” Leblanc adds. “Ultimately, the Vogue Hotel is a celebration of our city and a space for guests and locals to mingle.”
