MONTREAL, January 15th, 2016: Ritz-Carlton Montreal is rolling out a guest-favourite package this winter, "The Colder the Better." Back by popular demand, "The Colder the Better" is available for all suites with fireplaces, where guests automatically save a percentage off their room rate based on the temperature outside at check-in—including the wind-chill factor— when below zero. Minus 25 degrees upon check-in? Save 25 per cent off a suite. If the mercury dips further, save even more. The package is set to be a sure-fire hit with travellers, given the low Canadian dollar and upward trend of the 'Istaycation."

With winter temperatures in Montreal typically hovering around minus 10 Celsius, Ritz-Carlton Montreal's "The Colder the Better" package equips guests with everything needed for a cozy night indoors. The package includes: suite accommodation with fireplace; hot chocolate, herbal tea or a latte by the fire; chocolate-flavoured marshmallows and spiced Speculoos cookies; cocktails at Maison Boulud; breakfast at Maison Boulud; complimentary parking; complimentary late checkout; plus, a discounted room rate based on the below-zero temperature outside on the day of arrival. The suite package is available until April 30, 201 6, and priced from $765 per night based on single occupancy, and from $790 per night based on double occupancy.

One of only four hotels designed by César Ritz himself and the first in the world to combine the Ritz and Carlton designations, Ritz-Carlton Montreal has mastered the Canadian winter retreat since opening its doors in 1912. The hotel was named "Top City Hotel in Canada" in Travel + Leisure's 201 5 World's Best Awards. It remains at the social heart of the city, attracting discerning guests from Canada and around the world.

"The Colder the Better" terms and conditions: Prices are for single or double occupancy. For an additional person, a fee of $ 100 CAD will apply. Temperature is in degrees Celsius. The temperature below zero is defined by the Front Office Staffas seen on theweathernetwork.com website at checkin. Temperature will include the wind-chill factor or 'feels like' temperature as seen at the time of check-in only. Package is subject to availability and cannot be combined with any other offer. Advance reservations are required; rates do not apply to groups. Rates listed are per room, per night, single or double occupancy, and exclusive of taxes, gratuities and other charges unless otherwise noted. Inclusions cannot be reimbursed or exchanged if not used. Inclusion must be used during stay and cannot be used towards another stay.

About the Ritz-Carlton Montreal

Granted the prestigious CAA/AAA Five Diamond Award - the only one in Quebec - and "Top City Hotel in Canada" in the 201 5 Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal has been the most elegant address in the city since 1912. In May of 2012, the hotel re-opened after an extensive multi-year restoration, which saw the Montreal landmark transformed into a chic and modern space.

Located near many high-end boutiques, galleries and museums, this luxury hotel offers guests 96 guest rooms and 33 suites featuring the latest in high-tech amenities, while details from the original hotel abound to accentuate its seamless mixture of old and new. The hotel's restaurant, Maison Boulud, is operated by the hotel in collaboration with Chef Daniel Boulud and his restaurant management company, The Dinex Group. It was designed by Super Potato, one of the world's most highly reputed restaurant design firms.

The first hotel in the world to combine the Ritz and Carlton designations, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal is located in the heart of Golden Square Mile, home to Montreal's elite in the early twentieth century. A symbol of refinement and elegance, the hotel has welcomed some of the world's best-known heads of state, artists and business magnates. Several of the 20th century's leading figures have stayed there, including the Queen Mother, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Richard Nixon, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, George Bush Sr., as well as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who celebrated their first wedding at the hotel.

The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton Montreal

The Ritz-Carlton Montreal also features 45 new Ritz-Carlton Residences, representing the pinnacle of residential luxury combined with the use of all the amenities and services of the finest hotel in the city including concierge service, fine dining, fitness centre, pool and spa. The endorsement by the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC for these residences - the only branded residences in Montreal - will be the certificate for the caliber and quality of these residential diamonds.
