Are you looking for Valentine’s Day ideas? Well look no further, because we are dedicating this blog post to all of you who might need a bit of inspiration to make this special day extra special.


We believe that there is no better way to spend Valentine’s Day than by going on a romantic staycation with the one you love, so we have discovered THE best suite in Old Montreal to accommodate all of your needs: the Romance Suite at the Nelligan Hotel, which offers everything a couple could possibly dream of. Equipped with an unbelievably comfortable king-sized bed, a large living area with an electric fireplace, a mini bar, a Nespresso coffee machine, a beautiful view of Rue de la Commune, and an impressive Jacuzzi tub, there is no reason for you to leave your suite… And what could be better than waking up and enjoying breakfast in bed in these surroundings? Located at 106 Rue Saint Paul W, this hotel also has two great restaurants, Verses and Méchant Boeuf, where you can have a romantic evening and enjoy a delicious meal without having to leave the comfort of your room! For those who however, are interested in walking out, Bonaparte restaurant offers the perfect French environment for a romantic dinner!


This year, Yoga Vieux Montreal is organizing a special activity just in time for Valentine’s Day that can be enjoyed between lovers or friends. On Saturday, February 13th from 4:00 PM until 6:00 PM, an introductory workshop for yoga addicts will be held and will feature a combination of acrobatics, yoga and art therapy. This is the perfect activity to recharge your energy. Whether you attend with someone or alone, all are welcome!


If yoga is not your taste, why not take a private pastry making class at Maison Christian Faure? Recognized for their expertise, with chef Christian Faure being from Paris, this is the perfect opportunity for amateurs to try their hand at the art of pastry making. Chef Faure and his team prepare fresh sweets for you to enjoy with a beverage of your choice. You can even have lunch and an apéro while you’re there!

Finally, if you would just like to take in the beauty of Old Montreal, why not walk along Rue Saint Paul, one of the loveliest streets in Old Montreal that is lined with art galleries and boutiques. We especially love galerie Leroyer, Saint-Dizier and l’Espace Pepin, the latter of which showcases the paintings of artist Lysanne Pepin but where you can also shop for decorative objects, clothing for both men and women, and much more!


Should you wish to take a fun picture to remember this special day, head towards Place Jacques Cartier and discover the new Inuit art gallery Ashukan where, just facing it, you will find a red bench with hearts on it. If that is not thematic enough, Andy Warhol’s famous LOVE sculpture right outside of LHOTEL Montreal, located at 262 Rue Saint Jacques O, is the perfect backdrop for your Valentine’s Day picture.
