|You know those days when you need a break from everything (including changing diapers, cooking and running after two kiddos) well, I had one of those days recently. I packed my small (I swear, it was small) carry-on, kissed my hubby with a sweet goodnight and took a girls-staycation day in the brand new and ultra stylish Boxotel.Marie-Jeanne Rivard, the mastermind that designed and built our house launched her first hotel project in Montreal, and I was desperate to see it and try it, let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint. I truly felt home. Every single corner is so well planned, with a mix of industrial-cozy and posh vibes me and my homies loved.|
|T H E A M E N I T I E SBoxotel is a new eco-friendly, super high-tech and modern hotel that comes with all the perks you are looking for: smart lights, curtains and room temperature (as soon as I came into my room, curtains automatically opened – excuse moi?). You can count there are high-speed internet, TV and even a yoga mat to enjoy their classes once a week in the lobby area. Local is the number one priority for them (and I heart this), you’ll see they encourage local artists and companies integrating to their boutique-hotel. Keeping a green concept, Boxotel offers a weekly complimentary housekeeping service and if you are really in need of a daily one, they can make it happen as well.Finally, if you want to enjoy a stunning skyline view of the city, head all the way to the terrace and make sure to bring your bathing suit. They have a dry sauna, turkish bath and a jacuzzi, aka heaven.|
|Excuse me, lady, are you pregnant with twins? This is the question my friend Joanna got last week and we are still laughing about it.|
|T H E R O O M SWe had the loft king luxe for ourselves and it was a surprise to find so many things in a space of 390sft. A fully equipped modern kitchen, washer and dryer, dishwasher (this is not a drill), fridge and all the basics you’ll need to entertain during your stay. I swooned over the Boxotel branded tableware, made by Benoit Daigle. Bonus points: You’ll have a bathtub AND a shower in the room, hello bubbly nights with the best local products along!Included with your stay, there’s a free breakfast menu (delivered to your room) served by Boxotel’s Cafe Nomad. The cute cafe serves fresh yogurt and smoothies, yogurt with granola, fresh scones and for the sweet tastes, a selection of muffins are also available.Nota bene: Don’t get me started on the bed conversation. So comfy I might bring it back home with me, ok MJ?|
|I did a tiny mix of salty-sweet brekkie. A fresh beet-strawberry smoothie, granola & yogurt and a cheddar bacon scone.Ps. the appetite was all mine except my leg bruises, brought to you by magical flying legos all over my house.Phew, motherhood!|
Thank you, Boxotel for the sweet memories and for sharing with us your lovely hotel.
All opinions, and sweet dreams are entirely mine.
