H2Y 0A3 Travel Guide
The building is not your typical Westin in a big city. Sure, it's inside a big 23-story tower (formerly, it was home for the Montreal Gazette newspaper) but also adjacent are three smaller historical buildings that give the hotel over 450 guestrooms and suites total. And it's still pretty new, having just opened in May 2009.
The hotel features an interesting restaurant concept, gaZette, serving French Canadian cuisine in a farm to table experience with fine-dining flair. For drinks, guests can head to the Reporter Bar where they can trade scoops--er, stories from their day.
But the real star of the building is the hotel's indoor glass-bottomed pool on the fourth floor with views down into the hotel's grand entranceway. And of course, at night there's always the ever-reliable Westin Heavenly beds to sink into after you're done exploring the city.
