Bottom Line

The 30-suite Hotel Quintessence is a luxury boutique property on Lake Tremblant with a polished chalet feel within walking distance of attractions, shops, and restaurants. Contemporary, luxurious suites have balconies or terraces with lake views, heated marble floors, stone fireplaces, and separate soaking tubs and walk-in showers, plus some have wet bars, powder rooms, and outdoor hot tubs and fireplaces. A full service spa with a sauna and steam room as well as a 24/7 fitness center are available on-site, plus there's a beautiful outdoor infinity pool (open seasonally) and hot tub with wonderful lake views. There's also an elegant restaurant and wine bar serving tasty French fare that receives excellent reviews, but guests complain the prices are high. Travelers might also want to consider the nearby Fairmont Tremblant Resort, which has both an indoor and outdoor pool as well as two restaurants, all at less expensive rates.

Oyster Hotel Review


A polished luxury chalet-style hotel with excellent lake views

Sitting on three well-manicured acres, the Hotel Quintessence feels exclusive, yet also maintains a homey feel, with soft furnishings, stone fireplaces, and lots of wood. There are plenty of luxurious touches throughout, like leather-wrapped wood staircases, glass chandeliers, and stained glass details in arched windows. Traditional leather seating fills the chic lobby, which features hardwood floors and wood panel walls for a polished and sophisticated feel warmed by a large stone fireplace. The hotel's restaurant and wine bar are similarly clad in wood and neutral hues, with beautiful dark wood floors tied to stone pillars and wood ceiling beams. Brown leather chairs and crisp white tablecloths lend an upscale vibe to the restaurant, while the bar's stone accent walls, comfortable armchairs, and leather seating give it a cozier vibe. The restaurant is popular with visitors all over Mont Tremblant, and hotel guests are almost exclusively couples at this hotel. 


Right on Lake Tremblant with gorgeous views

The waterfront Hotel Quintessence sits on Lake Tremblant with the Cabriolet Ski Lift, Aquaclub La Source, Flying Mile Ski Life, and Mont Tremblant Activities Centre a five-minute walk away. Restaurants, shops, and the Express Gondola are a 10-minute walk from the hotel, while Porte du Soleil Ski Lift and Golf Le Geant are a 15-minute walk. Around a 10-minute drive away are the Mont-Tremblant Ski Resort, Casino Mont Tremblant, and Circuit Mont-Tremblant. The Montreal Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport is about a two-hour drive away.


Upscale, modern suites with marble countertops and balconies with exquisite lake views

The hotel's spacious suites are elegant and refined, clad in neutral hues like creams and browns complemented by wood furnishings. Tan Berber wool carpets and neutral soft armchairs and couches adorn the spaces, with wood beams throughout. All suites have private balconies or terraces with seating and superb views of Lake Tremblant. Flat-screen TVs sit inside dark wood furniture and all rooms also have beautiful stone fireplaces as well as coffeemakers, minibars, bathrobes/slippers, and free Wi-Fi. Some suites have dining areas in addition to outdoor fireplaces and hot tubs, while others have powder rooms and wet bars. Large, contemporary bathrooms have both claw-foot soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers (some with rainfall showerheads). The marble floors are heated and a supply of Aveda toiletries is provided. Besides the suites, a private, historic cabin on the lake is also available and features an original brick fireplace, cast iron pedestal tub (but no shower), and hardwood throughout.


Excellent restaurant and wine bar, full service spa, outdoor infinity pool, and 24/7 fitness center

French and local dishes are served at the Restaurant La Quintessence for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, while hundreds of wines from all over the world are offered at the wine bar. All food and drinks receive excellent reviews, but guests mention that prices are high and breakfast is not included in room rates. Room service is available 24-hours a day, though with a limited selection overnight. The hotel also has a spa that offers massages, mani/pedis, facials, and body treatments, plus there's a steam room and sauna. In-room massage services can be arranged as well. The outdoor infinity pool and hot tub are surrounded by greenery and offer stunning Lake Tremblant views, but the pool is only open seasonally. There's also a 24/7 fitness center with free weights, cardio machines, and yoga classes. There is a computer station for guest use and Wi-Fi is free throughout. Concierge services as well as a free ski shuttle are also provided, and the hotel has secure facilities for ski storage.
