As the tinsel gets swept up, the leftovers are consumed, and finally, FINALLY that last overnight guest is shoved out the door, your thoughts will probably turn to hibernation and escape from the energy and enthusiasm of the season. This feeling of getting cozy, slowing things down, and getting snuggly in the winter is best encapsulated by the Danish word “Hygge”; think cashmere blankets, chunky knit socks, and a crackling log fire with a mug of hot tea.
Luckily for you, there are plenty of places to get your Hygge on!
Hilton Montreal Laval
When you think romantic getaway, you must also think “suite”. Snuggle up in style in one of Hilton Montreal Laval’s 42 one or two bedroom suites. These spacious, beautifully appointed suites feature soaring 9’ ceilings, private terrace, a Hilton Serenity bed, and a full kitchen and dining area. Stock up on snacks from the upscale Pantry store, featuring simple prepared foods, kitchen staples, and even upscale jams, syrups, and chocolates. If watching an on-demand movie from the King bed is more appealing, order room service from Restaurant Bar Le Quartz instead. If you do choose to venture out of the room, a bubbling hot tub and warm pool is only steps away.
Hilton Quebec City
Hilton Quebec City has one of the most delightful views of one of the most romantic cities in the world, a perfect setting for a long weekend with a loved one. Make the most of the vista with a spacious panoramic suite, featuring views of the Parliament, the St-Lawrence River, and Old Quebec. On Sundays, venture out of your room to brunch in style at le23, featuring a buffet of fresh local offerings such as eggs benedict, smoked salmon, and hot waffles. For a unique and unforgettable experience, take a dip in the heated indoor / outdoor rooftop pool; in true Scandinavian style, you can enjoy the warm waters as the sun sets over the Laurentian mountains and the snow gently falls around you.
Want to be spoiled rotten? Book a whirlpool suite at the luxurious Hilton Lac Leamy, put on the plush bathrobe and slippers, and settle in for the long-haul; the ultimate in romance and decadence awaits. Enjoy the lake view from your spacious suite, or get closer to the action with a trip to the Spa, featuring steam baths, whirlpool, saunas, indoor / outdoor pools, and 17 treatment rooms. If you tire of room service from the award-winning restaurant Arome, venture down to Le Baccara, the CAA-AAA Five Diamond restaurant located within the attached Casino du Lac Leamy (hint: try the famous five or eight course Chef’s tasting menu). Cuddle up afterwards by the outdoor wood burning fireplace, which will keep you warm even as the temperature falls.
Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Montreal / Dorval
Had enough of the ice and snow? If you want to ditch the Snuggie and jet off to sunnier climes, stay overnight at Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Montreal / Dorval before your flight and start your vacation off right. You won’t have to set foot into the cold; everything you need for a comfortable stay is at your fingertips, from a complimentary hot breakfast, free shuttle to the airport, free WiFi, and free self-parking.
The perfect romantic weekend getaway is waiting for you at Hilton.
