Sheraton to open Montreal Airport hotel

Sheraton will open its third hotel in Montreal in April, at Pierre Trudeau International Airport in Dorval, twenty minutes from downtown Montreal.

The hotel's fairly large: 476 rooms and 19,000 square feet (almost 1,800 square metres) of meeting space. The rooms will contain an oversized desk, ergonomic chair, high-speed Internet, LCD TV and MP3 player dock, an impressive offering for business travellers to Canada's second largest metropolitan area.

For relaxing and working out in your business trip downtime, there's a sauna, steam room and whirlpool, plus an indoor/outdoor swimming pool and gym.

Sheraton also plans to offer a business-class lobby, using the [email protected] concept in association with Microsoft, providing laptops and workstations, meeting areas, webcams for videoconferencing and free Wi-Fi. It's similar to the offering at Sydney's Sheraton on the Park and the Sheraton Noosa Resort and Spa.

Sheraton is in the middle of a serious expansion phase, with more than 50 hotels due to either open or join the group in the next two years.

The Sheraton Montreal Airport joins the Sheraton Laval Hotel and Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel in the city.

Business travellers can earn Starwood Preferred Guest points on their stay, which can be exchanged for free nights and flights or exchanged for frequent flyer miles or points -- although Qantas' Frequent Flyer programme is not a partner.
