Treat yourself to a Festive Stay in the heart of Montreal’s Golden Square Mile for the Holidays.

As the snowflakes gently descend from the sky and the aroma of festive treats fills the air, it’s that magical time of the year again – the Holiday season.

Wishing all my readers joy, warmth, and a season filled with love and laughter!

As the author of Gen’s Delights , the question that is often thrown my way is how do I “Delight” myself during this festive season?

The short but broad answer is “quality time spent with friends and family” , however for those who know me, I always try to include a moment of respite that I reserve just for myself to enjoy a bit of self-pampering.

Of course if I can add a few of my favorite elements to the mix: fine cuisine, elegant fashion, refined location and joyful music, then I know I am in for a real treat !

While there are countless ways to celebrate, why not elevate your holiday experience with a luxurious winter stay at the heart of Montreal, in the enchanting Sofitel Hotel?

A Tradition of Opulence
