The Colder It Is, the More You Save

MONTREAL, QB -- (Marketwired) -- If the freezing temperatures and mountains of snow are not enough to induce chronic hibernation, Ritz-Carlton Montreal is giving guests even more incentive to check-in and snuggle up indoors in front a roaring fire. The luxury Montreal hotel's newest package, "The Colder the Better," is available for all suites with fireplaces, where guests automatically save a percentage off their room rate based on the temperature outside at check-in, when below zero. Minus 25 degrees Celsius upon check-in? Save 25 percent. If the mercury dips further, save even more. Visitors from the U.S. stand to benefit with even greater savings, what with the U.S. dollar going strong against the Canadian, making it the perfect time to travel north of the border.

With late winter and early spring temperatures in Montreal typically hovering around minus 10 Celsius, Ritz-Carlton Montreal's "The Colder the Better" package equips guests with everything needed for the perfect night in the city, without the frostbite. The luxury hotel package includes: luxurious suite accommodation with fireplace; herbal teas or hot chocolate; chocolate-flavoured marshmallows and spiced Speculoos cookies in-room; cocktails at Maison Boulud; breakfast at Maison Boulud; complimentary parking; complimentary late checkout; plus, a discounted room rate based on the below-zero temperature outside on the day of arrival. The suite package is available until April 30, 2015, and priced from $695 CAD per night based on single occupancy, and from $720 CAD per night based on double occupancy.

To boot, the nip of winter will be kept at bay as Ritz-Carlton Montreal keeps guests toasty throughout their stay, with not just one or two roaring fires at the hotel, but four. The first, in suite, is best paired with marshmallows, cookies and plush robes. The second, a grand fireplace in the historic Palm Court lobby, accompanied with tea or hot chocolate. Find the third at Maison Boulud restaurant and bar, best enjoyed along with a warming cocktail. Up on the rooftop terrace, the fourth comes with stunning city views.

Ritz-Carlton Montreal has mastered the perfect winter retreat since opening its doors in 1912 as the first hotel in the world to combine the Ritz and Carlton designations, and only one of four designed by César Ritz himself. The downtown Montreal hotel was recently awarded AAA Five Diamond status, "Best Hotel in Canada" by U.S. News & World Report, and the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Hotel rating. Today it remains at the social heart of the city, attracting discerning guests from Canada and around the world.

Rates listed are per room, per night, single or double occupancy, and exclusive of taxes, gratuities and other charges unless otherwise noted.

About The Ritz-Carlton Montreal
Granted the prestigious CAA/AAA Five Diamond Award -- the only one in Quebec -- The Ritz-Carlton Montreal has been the most elegant address in the city since 1912. In May of 2012, the hotel re-opened after an extensive multi-year restoration, which saw the Montreal landmark transformed into a chic and modern space. 

Located near many high-end boutiques, galleries and museums, this luxury hotel offers guests 96 guest rooms and 33 suites featuring the latest in high-tech amenities, while details from the original hotel abound to accentuate its seamless mixture of old and new. The hotel's restaurant, Maison Boulud, is operated by the hotel in collaboration with Chef Daniel Boulud and his restaurant management company, The Dinex Group. It was designed by Super Potato, one of the world's most highly reputed restaurant design firms. 

The first hotel in the world to combine the Ritz and Carlton designations, The Ritz-Carlton Montreal is located in the heart of Golden Square Mile, home to Montreal's elite in the early twentieth century. A symbol of refinement and elegance, the hotel has welcomed some of the world's best-known heads of state, artists and business magnates. Several of the 20th century's leading figures have stayed there, including the Queen Mother, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Richard Nixon, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, George Bush Sr., as well as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who celebrated their first wedding at the hotel.

The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton Montreal
The Ritz-Carlton Montreal also features 45 new Ritz-Carlton Residences, representing the pinnacle of residential luxury combined with the use of all the amenities and services of the finest hotel in the city including concierge service, fine dining, fitness centre, pool and spa.
