A new Courtyard by Marriott hotel will be an integral part of Espace Montmorency, a mixed-use development in the heart of Laval. The $45-million hotel is slated to open in fall 2022.
Espace Montmorency, an urban hub directly connected to Montréal’s underground network via the Montmorency metro station, will feature offices, cafés, restaurants, 717 residential units and inviting green spaces, which will create a vibrant and animated new space for the community and visitors.
The Courtyard by Marriott hotel will occupy Tower III of Espace Montmorency, at the corner of Lucien-Paiement and Claude-Gagné Streets, and comprise 188 rooms on 10 floors, with a total area of some 113,000 square feet. Besides offering access to the full range of the Espace Montmorency complex’s services, the hotel will feature a restaurant, a lounge bar, a business centre for meetings, individual workspaces, reception halls and exclusive terraces, including one on the second floor and another on the roof (the lounge bar), plus access to the complex’s indoor parking garage.
“We are thrilled to be opening a hotel in Laval, right in the heart of the biggest mixed-use urban development currently under construction. The primary market for our Courtyard by Marriott concept banner is business travel, but we also pay close attention to the needs of families. The strategic location of Espace Montmorency, with its easy access to the highway network, public transit and neighbourhood services, was a decisive factor in our choice of Laval as a destination. We are fortunate to be teaming up with such experienced partners for the management of this premium property, which will breathe new life into the hotel offering in Montréal’s Northern Crown,” said Serge Primeau, managing partner and president, Urgo Hotels Canada.
Hotel guests will enjoy the direct underground connection to the Montréal métro, a strategic location adjacent to the Place Bell arena and an extensive array of dining options bordering the 60,000-square-foot Espace Montmorency verdant inner courtyard.
The project is aiming to obtain LEED Gold certification for the Core and Shell of the hotel and the two residential towers of the complex, as well as LEED Platinum certification for the office tower. The complex, valued at $450 million overall, is slated to welcome its first tenants in spring 2022.
