New ballroom and magnificent terrace overlooking Old Montréal
Montréal, 8 March 2016 ― The InterContinental Montréal, strategically located at the gateway to Old Montréal, this year plans to inaugurate a new ballroom with a capacity of between 300 and 400 persons depending upon configuration. In 2017, two additional venues will open, namely a prefunction facility adjacent to the ballroom and a spectacular hall leading out to a terrace with a singular view of Old Montréal. Recent work follows in the wake of renovations to main tower rooms in 2009 and Nordheimer meeting rooms in 2013. The $6 million investment has been designed to honour the hotel’s elegant, timeless backdrop, while providing the business community and event planners with meeting and function space consistent with the experiential requisites of 21st century clients.
The InterContinental Hotel Montreal is 25 years old
MONTREAL, January 28th, 2016 – 2016 will mark the 25th anniversary of the InterContinental Montreal, located at 360, rue Saint-Antoine. Vaults were discovered when the site was excavated during construction of the hotel, which sits on the boundary between the city’s downtown and Old Montreal. Even today, the area is known for its historic treasures, as well as for making a name for itself as one of the major business, reception and tourist areas in the city. In 2009, the hotel was awarded the Ulysse trophy at the Grands Prix du tourisme québécois, for being the best hotel in Québec. To celebrate its 25 years in existence, the InterContinental Montreal will be offering its clientele new opportunities to explore its food services, for even more epicurean discoveries.
