Looming over the Olympic Stadium, ’L’Observatoire de la Tour de Montréal’ (the Observatory Tower Montreal) figures amongst the uncontested symbols of Montreal. Located inside the tallest inclined tower in the world (at 175 meters and 45 degrees), the view of Montreal is nothing but exceptional. On a clear day, visitors can see up to 80 miles away, including the Laurentian Mountains. No wonder the Tower of Montreal is a member of the Federation of Great Towers of the World, alongside, among others, the CN Tower in Toronto, the Empire State Building in New York and the Menara Kuala Lumpur.
Montreal’s famed basilica is a major landmark and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the city. But don’t let that dissuade you from visiting; Notre-Dame is one of the world’s finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture. The pipe organ is breathtaking, and even more impressive to hear than it is to look at. If you’re in town during the Christmas holiday season, it’s worth your time to take in a performance.
We can always count on Holt Renfrew for luxe during the Holiday season. One of our favorite finds from Canada’s leading luxury store this week was this pair of Monique Péan earrings - perfect for the season. Lucky for guests in Montreal, the luxe department stores only moments away from Sofitel Golden Mile. Explore the collection.

MUSÉE DES BEAUX-ARTS DE MONTRÉAL
Moments from Sofitel Montreal you’ll find more than four-thousand works of art inside the Museum of Fine Arts Montreal’s permanent collection. Temporary exhibitions also intersect with various original arts: fine arts, music, film, fashion and design. And of course don’t miss the 22 sculptures outside, including this piece by Joan Miro. The perfect location for a very art-filled weekend!
CINEMANIA has grown from modest beginnings at The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (another Sofitel favorite!) into an internationally recognized event, and one of the largest dedicated French-language feature film festivals in the world solely devoted to premieres in North America, Canada, or Quebec. Its large-screen format and comfortable seating in the majestic Imperial Cinema, make the 10-day festival an eagerly anticipated event in Montreal’s annual cultural calendar.
The centerpiece of this year’s tribute to actress Anouk Aimée (pictured) is the captivating documentary "La Beauté du Geste" (A Gesture of Body) co-directed by Dominique Besnehard. The documentary will be followed by a Masterclass in the presence of Anouk Aimée herself!
Sofitel Montreal Golden Mile is the official hotel of this not-to-be-missed Montreal event, running November 7-17 2013. See the schedule, here.
FASHION OF JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
If you are visiting New York don’t miss ‘The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk’. The exhibit spans the French designers career and impact on the fashion world since the 1970’s. The Brooklyn Museum will be the only East Coast venue for international exhibition dedicated to the groundbreaking French couturier, organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The critically acclaimed touring show, already seen by half a million people, spans the Paris-based designer’s 37-year career and includes iconic examples never before exhibited. The Brooklyn presentation will include new material not shown in the previous venues, including ensembles from his recent runway shows. The show is composed of approximately 140 haute couture and prêt-à-porter pieces, and is absolutely worth the trip. See more details, here:
