* Wyndham Hotels & Resorts recently assumed management of the 600-room L'Hotel Complexe Desjardins, now called the Wyndham Montreal Hotel. As part of the conversion, the hotel is undergoing a $10 million upgrade, which includes all guest rooms, public space, and meeting rooms. The hotel has 31,000 square feet of meeting space.
Located in the heart of Montreal's cultural district, across from Place des Arts (the city's performing arts center), the Wyndham Montreal Hotel is the only hotel with underground access to the Montreal Convention Center. It is also connected to a complex that features 50 stores and three office towers.
* The 459-room Hotel du Parc completed a major renovation of guest rooms, public areas, and meeting space earlier this year. The hotel features a conference center with 28 conference and banquet rooms. The hotel represents the only Quebec membership in the International Association of Conference Centers. IACC requires member centers to conform to a strict set of specifications. Sited at the foot of Mount Royal, the property has a new management team in place, whose goal is to build its business clientele "and reinforce its four-star rating."
