At Sofitel Montreal Golden Mile, our voyageurs can not only sleep and eat, but also enjoy French art de vivre, celebrate and have an amazing time! We continue to offer a whirlwind of culturally fascinating events all year long, focusing on our four core passions: gastronomy, design, art & culture and well-being.
Essence de Sofitel – Signature Scent & Music
The Essence de Sofitel mist, created by renowned perfumer Lucien Ferrero exclusively for Sofitel hotels and diffused in the lobby and all common areas, is a distinctive, intoxicating fragrance, artfully blending together notes of refreshing bergamot and earthy sandalwood, crisp lemon leaf, the sweet floral charm of white rose, French vanilla, jasmine and lily of the valley.
To showcase today’s French music scene, Sofitel has playlists curated by French artist and producer DJ Mosey streaming throughout the lobby and setting a sultry and insouciant atmosphere.

Sofitel has appropriated this age-old tradition and turned it into a magical and dramatic homage to the passage of day into night, lighting candles throughout its hotels at sunset every day for guests all around the world.
At sundown, our Ambassadors perform a theatrical Candle Ritual in the lobby. The ceremony is held as a symbolic celebration, farewell and appreciation for the blessings of the day and a welcome to the magical splendor of the night. The hotel’s lights go down, our Ambassadors glide through the lobby bearing candles as the haunting tunes of French opera rock song, Le Monde est Stone, fill the air….
