Montrealers seeking an escape from their everyday that's not too far from home need look no further than a brand-new boutique hotel near downtown.

The Hyatt Centric in Old Montreal — the chain's only location in Canada — offers unique decor, playful architecture and upscale rooms, each with a spectacular view that will give you a new perspective on the city.

There's a modern, Art Deco feel from the moment you step into the lobby. Reflective black arches point the way to the concierge, past minimalist furniture featuring pops of pattern and pigment. All of the art and furnishings in the hotel are custom-made by Quebec artisans, so you won't find them anywhere else.

The hotel's eye-catching design features on every floor. Guest room hallways zigzag in a chevron pattern, each one outfitted with geometric carpeting and low floor lighting, like aisles in a stylish cinema.

Rooms are minimalist with exposed concrete ceilings and splashes of colour, like a custom teal armchair in the king suite that looks straight out of a futuristic furniture catalog.

The decor also features monochromatic elements, like city-landmark-inspired wallpaper, designed specifically for the hotel, that lines room closets and pays homage to Montreal's rich history.

The sleek, minimal look of each room draws the eye to the floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel towers above the historic Old Port, offering incredible vistas of the Saint Lawrence River and neon-lit Grande Roue.

Once you get a glimpse of the view, you're unlikely to notice the stylish wall art.

Backlit headboards and bathroom mirrors remove the need for bulky wall fixtures. There's also a lot of emphasis on sensors to keep energy use efficient. Nightlights under the bed and in the bathroom illuminate when the sun goes down, or when overhead lighting is dimmed.

Rooms at the Hyatt Centric start around $200 per night during the off-season and can double during major events, like the Grand Prix. Hotel location and the amenities that come with each room, such as a "dryer bar" and complimentary robes, contribute to the price tag.

The hotel is also planning to open a rooftop bar this year, which will elevate the services already on offer to new heights.

Anyone looking to sample the hotel without dishing for a full stay can visit the stylish Cartier Arms restaurant, which serves signature cocktails and British-French fusion cuisine, like guinea fowl ($42) and sticky toffee pudding ($12).

The Miami Art Deco-style mirrored columns, colour-changing ceiling and elegant seating all make for a classy night out.
