Canada: The Griffintown Hotel, which offers 114 apartments for short-, medium- and long-term stays, has opened its doors.

Located in the Griffintown neighbourhood, the property's apartments overlook either downtown and Mount Royal or the Lachine Canal, from private balconies.

Guests can choose from one- and two-bedroom apartments. Up to five adults can comfortably stay in the largest units for an extended period of time, and discounts are available for bookings of seven nights or more.

“Launching a new apartment-hotel concept in the midst of a pandemic is quite a challenge, but we believe it demonstrates the need for an essential service like ours,” said Laura-Michèle Grenier Martin, general manager of Griffintown Hotel. “Our vision is perfectly in tune with today’s reality. We offer a safe and autonomous environment while providing hotel standards and services.”

The aparthotel incorporates a number of features designed to reassure guests during the pandemic. A take-out section reserved exclusively for aparthotel guests has been included on the ground floor, offering fresh meals and local ingredients that can be cooked in-room. Similarly, the hotel’s sister business, the Café-crèmerie-dépanneur GH, provides everyday items to residents. Guests wanting to keep contact to a minimum can also request that reception staff deliver orders directly to their rooms.

The property has put a number of additional health and sanitation procedures in place, like a two-step apartment-preparation process. A 24-hour delay between bookings is also observed to reassure new arrivals at the beginning of their stay.
