Contemporary Style Breathes New Life Into Montreal Fine Restaurants

Featuring a Redesigned Restaurant and Lobby, the Courtyard Montreal Airport Represents the Way of the Future

MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - Mar 5, 2014) - Hotel experiences have come a long way since the days of holing up in one's guest room. Where visitors may have once been content to leave their rooms only when leaving the property, today's travellers are looking for a more connected experience. And leading the way into that brighter future is the Courtyard Montreal Airport, where the updated lobby and remodeled YUL Restaurant & Bar celebrate a new level of form and function.

"You get the feeling that our guests are involved in a hotel community," explains General Manager Mirella Alfiero. "They are in constant interaction, if they wish to be so, in the finest environment that offers them the technology they need to work, entertain and relax."

Interaction feels perfectly natural in the newly remodeled YUL Restaurant & Bar. The open floor plan, floating fireplace, natural light, organic materials and clean-lined furnishings feel exciting and fresh as they unite within this must-try destination among restaurants in Dorval.

Complementing the newly relaxed style is the cuisine. Featuring fresh ingredients in seasonal dishes, the new menu runs the gamut from trendy to classic dishes. Such diversity suits the space, in which breakfast buffets, lunch and dinner are served seven days a week.

Just as YUL Restaurant & Bar stands out among restaurants in the West Island, so too does the updated lobby distinguish the property from other hotels near the YUL Airport.

"Our guests actually told us what their needs were, and we delivered what they requested!" exclaims Karine Huard, Director of Sales & Marketing. "We definitively raised the bar of standards in our hotel market."

Accordingly, the redesigned lobby features flexible spaces where guests can sidle up to the community table to catch up on email, or conduct an impromptu meeting within one of the semi-private seating areas. Large televisions encourage other guests to simply relax, while a small computer station lets travellers easily print their boarding passes.

The real star of the lobby, however, is the new GoBoard. Allowing guests to catch up on local news, travel conditions and area recommendations, the board is just one more feature that gives this property an edge over other YUL Airport hotels. The future, in other words, has arrived. And it looks amazing.
