The Warwick hotel chain has opened its first Canadian location in Montreal.

Part of a mixed-use property, the hotel features 131 rooms and suites and follows Warwick’s core strategy of owning hotels in the centre of commercial, cultural and gastronomic activities in international gateway cities.

Suites feature kitchenettes, king-sized beds and the property contains several amenities.

The opening came after Warwick purchased Hotel Le Crystal for an undisclosed some from a group of buyers. No purchasers were identified, but Montreal-based real estate law firm De Grandpré Chait said it closed the sale of Hotel Le Crystal on behalf of 126 investors and owners of condotels.

Hotel Le Crystal closed during the COVID-19 pandemic as hoteliers and resort operators across the globe saw their businesses decimated.
