Located in the heart of Montreal (340 Rue De La Gauchetière O), the new Humaniti Hotel Montreal, Autograph Collection, is set to open in June 2021. It’s the first Autograph Collection property in Quebec. The standout development is already an urban landmark thanks to its audacious H-shaped architecture that rises 39 stories above the city and home to Montreal’s newest roof top terrace. Known for celebrating boutique hotels that are unique in design and thoughtful in spirit, Autograph Collection is an extraordinary compilation of independent hotels around the world, each uniquely crafted to leave a vivid imprint.
Built as a ‘next generation hotel for true citizens of the world’, the 193 room property is committed to the well-being of all its guests in simple yet sophisticated ways. Exuding a vibrant living, breathing energy, the hotel is the focal-point of the newly-constructed Humaniti Montreal. This European-inspired, mixed-use development is the city’s first Smart Vertical Community™. It’s a fully-connected environment combining retail, residential living, commercial office space, with the striking new hotel concept.
Humaniti was designed by Montreal’s Andres Escobar, design principal of Lemay + Escobar, and already nominated as a finalist for Best Futura Project – dedicated to projects that provide a glimpse into the future through distinct architectural and environmental qualities – by the prestigious MIPIM Awards in Cannes. The innovative live-work-play complex places sustainability at the forefront. The green building, pursuing LEED and WELL certifications, sets a new benchmark for the city thanks to an innovative architectural framework that seeks to improve health, wellness, and human experience through its thoughtful design.
The sleek, soaring towers float over Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, the charming public square located in the Quartier International, next to Montreal’s iconic Palais des Congrès convention centre. Historic Old Montreal and the Quartier Des Spectacles are just steps away.
“Our prized location, in the heart of Montreal, allows visitors to easily experience the city’s diverse neighborhoods, and absorb its culture,” says Mathieu Larochelle, Humaniti Hotel’s General Manager. “We will have some of the most exciting new experiences at your fingertips, including an exceptional food and drink program by local, award-winning artisans, sublime spa treatments, and a remarkable rooftop pool. The human-scale of our approach aims to set a new standard of hospitality here.”
Humaniti Hotel’s three distinct dining concepts are set to captivate guests and residents alike. Conceived by executive chef Jean-Sébastien Giguère, h3 restaurant is the hotel’s flagship dining space celebrating Quebec’s famed culinary culture. The vast wine cellar, prominently on-view for guests to enjoy, features some 3,000 bottles under the supervision of Sommelier Hugo Duchesne, crowned Best Sommelier of Quebec 2020.
The highly-acclaimed team will also oversee the adjacent h3 lounge, featuring a unique view overlooking French-Canadian artist Marc Séguin’s massive ‘Hanima’ art sculpture, soon to be installed in the courtyard as a gift to the city, and h3 terrace, located alongside the scenic rooftop pool.
The property will also feature a natural, urban-concept grocery store, Avril Supermarché Santé, and a French bakery on-site.
The all-new Humaniti Hotel Montreal is a fresh, forward-thinking concept and a gateway to all the city has to offer. The property will be managed by Urgo Hotels Canada, a leading hotel management company, and is owned by COGIR, a leader in real estate management in Quebec. The property is set to open spring 2021.
