For the eco–friendly rooms

175, rue Ontario E.,

Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Once a commercial print shop, this sleek spot offers an eco–friendly, peaceful hideaway in downtown’s Quartier des Spectacles. It’s no fluke that your teched–out room basks in natural light: The hotel’s sun–oriented windows, solar thermal panels and heat–retaining concrete floors were all designed to reduce energy consumption. Apartment–like lofts have smart features that allow you to control lights, temperature and music from the TV screen, so you never have to leave the bed.
