Looking for a weekend where you can get away from all the stresses of life and kick back to enjoy some much needed R&R? Well, we have just the place for you and it’s right here in Calgary.
Groupe Germain is the pioneer of the boutique-hotel concept in Canada, and has expanded its unique brand from Quebec into Western Canada with Hotel Le Germain Calgary. The philosophy is all about authentic elegance, and the design of the 143-room hotel reflects this. Based around natural materials such as volcanic stone floors, wood paneling, soft leather and solid granite, you’ll experience first-hand the lap of luxury and a good night’s sleep thanks to Frette 100% Egyptian cotton linens.
For a weekend staycation, we suggest trying one of their four packages. Prices range from $199/night to $459/night depending on what you choose. The concepts are based on what moves their guests the most; romance, gastronomy, city life and current events. With names such as Sweet Escape, Lover’s Retreat, Weekend Pass, and Luxury & Champagne, you are bound to find one that suits what you are after.
After a full day of shopping we suggest checking out some of the galleries located along historic Stephen Avenue.
Dinner is an easy choice. Charcut, one of Canada’s most celebrated restaurants, takes residence at Hotel le Germain. This restaurant, bar and gathering place serves up amazing local dishes described as urban-rustic cuisine.
Let the staff take care of the ‘Gtails’ as you relax and rejuvinate at the lodge or any of the exceptional amenities. They strive to be the perfect host in every sense, and the Gtails (spontaneous, heartfelt gestures) are the foundation on which the guest experience is built.
