Likes romantic walks on Mount Royal, long-distance cycling, beard oil products and antique travel guides. Has a bad habit of falling in love with men in vintage photographs who are certainly long dead. If he could be anything, he’d live his life as a professional flâneur. Until then, he spends his time writing, making music, and wandering.

While Montréal is on pandemic pause, the city’s hospitality experts are putting their skills to good use by bringing those special hotel touches into everyone’s home with the Hotel Association of Greater Montréal’s Project Pineapple. Bring some luxurious comfort to your confinement with these easy tips and tricks from the trade!

Ultimate comfort – easily achieved!

Featuring figures from some of the city’s leading hotels, Project Pineapple’s short, joyful videos not only brighten the day but also help you elevate your living space to the level of 5-star accommodations. Prepare for the ultimate staycation with lessons like how to make a pavlova with Hôtel Monville’s Roxanne, bed-making tips from Escad Hotel’s Jean-Philip, a homemade pasta how-to from W Montréal’s Ivan and even how to fold toilet paper with Hôtel Le Crystal’s Roméo for that extra little touch of luxury.

Virtual room service on call

Allowing Montréal’s hotels to spread the warmth and hospitality for which they’ve become internationally renowned, Project Pineapple shows off our city’s hoteliers doing what they do best until they can once again welcome in-person guests. It’s like having a top-tier hotel staff at your beck and call, there to make your stay a 5-star one.

Pineapple for all

After Christopher Columbus’ 1493 arrival in Guadeloupe, islanders offered up tasty chunks of pineapple to welcome the explorers ashore. Brought back to Europe, the pineapple became a symbol of hospitality, wealth and luxury, thrilling guests’ tastebuds and filling their minds with images of travel far and wide. A fitting symbol for Project Pineapple indeed!

And now it’s your turn to explore Project Pineapple.
