The Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec (ITHQ) has unveiled the relaunch of its hotel after significant renovation work. Situated in the heart of Montréal and steps away from Sherbrooke metro station, the Hôtel de l’ITHQ is formally reopening its doors.
The hotel boasts 42 recently updated rooms that feature locally sourced Québec products and materials, all curated by Montréal-based architecture and design firm Ædifica. Comprising 36 spacious standard rooms with abundant natural light, four adapted rooms for people with limited mobility, and two lavish suites, the hotel ensures the epitome of comfort, augmented by top-notch service from a vibrant, emerging workforce. Additionally, to enhance guest convenience, the hotel has introduced a pet-friendly policy.
“I’m proud that the newly revitalized Hôtel de l’ITHQ stands as a testament to our unwavering dedication to scholastic excellence, our enthusiasm for high-quality Québec products and materials, and our resolve to champion more sustainable practices. Alongside the Restaurant de l’ITHQ, the bar Blanc bec, and our services for meetings and events, the hotel completes our holistic array of offerings, highlighting the ITHQ’s aim to remain at the forefront of industry innovation,” said Liza Frulla, general director of ITHQ.
During its makeover, the Hôtel de l’ITHQ prioritized incorporating Québec artisanship in all facets of its guest services. Furniture, lighting fixtures, mattresses, artworks from the Gallea gallery, and much more were all conceived and crafted in Québec.
The ITHQ’s commitment to eco-friendly practices has earned it the Clé Verte certification, an international seal of approval for environmental stewardship in the hospitality sector.
“We aspire for our guests to relish unique experiences through the services, skills, and proficiencies of our students in hospitality, tourism, and food services. By staying at the Hôtel de l’ITHQ, the only hotel school in Canada, guests become invaluable supporters of the entire Québec tourism network, as the hotel’s operations benefit the next generation of hospitality professionals and support the training of today’s and tomorrow’s talent,” said Brishna Hilaire, director of rooms at the ITHQ.
