September | October 2017 | Ignitemag.ca | 7 Saputo Stadium Fitz & Follwell Co. bike tours PLATEAU MONT-ROYAL AND MILE END Colourful, quirky and creative, Plateau Mont-Royal is an eclectic mix of hipsters, students, artists and other free spirits. Walking and biking tours are among the best ways to experience Mile End— recently named one of the world's coolest neighbourhoods—where postcard perfect spiral staircases line residential streets and vintage shops dot historic Saint-Laurent Boulevard. Sample the area's diverse cuisine with stops at Schwartz's Deli for juicy smoked-meat sandwiches, the Fairmount and St-Viateur bakeries for Montréal-style bagels, Au Pied de Cochon for authentic Québécois cooking and La Banquise for epic poutine dishes. Unique off-site venues include Espace La Fontaine, situated within lush La Fontaine Park, and the Hotel-Dieu Hospital Museum. HOCHELAGA- MAISONNEUVE You can tell a neighbourhood is pretty special when it has its own nickname. Friendly and accessible Hochelaga- Maisonneuve, or HoMa for short, is home to some of Montréal's great cultural and sports venues including Olympic Stadium, Saputo Stadium, Maison de la Culture Maisonneuve, Dufresne-Nincheri Museum, the Denise Pelletier Theatre and the four Space for Life museums: Biodome, Insectarium, Botanical Garden and Planetarium. HoMa's residents have demon- strated a commitment to protecting the environment as evidenced by the many vegan restaurants, eco-friendly shops and the charming rue de la poésie eco- citizen project where poems are posted along a serene tree and flower-lined street for all to contemplate and enjoy. Hot Properties A massive yearlong renovation has transformed Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth into a spectacular new destination featuring an amazing restaurant, bar and coffee lounge, an urban market and a multipurpose zone to host pop-up shops. The hotel has collaborated with C2 Montréal to create Espace C2, a penthouse business campus for creative, collaborative and innovative group experiences. Eight new hotels have recently opened in Montréal. William Gray Hotel is a luxurious new eight-floor glass tower situated atop two 18th-century buildings in Old Montréal. The Renaissance Montréal Downtown Hotel is an eclectic blend of creativity and entrepreneurship targeting the experiential traveller. Mount Stephen Hotel, once home to a 19th-century business magnet, has been transformed into a grand boutique property in Montréal's Golden Square Mile district. Boxotel is a unique boutique property just steps from the city's thriving entertainment district. Hotel Monville is a chic urban property conveniently located in the heart of Montréal's business district. Best Western Plus is an affordable option on bustling Sainte Catherine Street. Coming soon: the new AC Marriott Montréal will feature panoramic views of the city; and a Four Seasons hotel will debut as part of the Holt Renfrew/Ogilvy luxury complex being built on Rue de la Montagne.
