Le Windsor on HABS TV!
February 5, 2013
P.K Subban, member of the Montreal Canadiens who will play in tomorrow's match against the Boston Bruins may have made the headlines in the Montreal Gazette last week, but Le Windsor gets full exposure, as well! Recognize the row of chandeliers?
Exactly a year ago, the All Star Charity event brought in Max Pacioretty, Alexander Ovechkin and Vladislav Tretiak to help raise funds for Pacioretty's foundation in a live and silent auction. A cocktail dinatoire setup with food stations and passed hors d'oeuvres kept the crowd mingling between the two ballrooms and the Peacock Alley, where the silent auction was setup. The Versailles ballroom then attracted the guests to participate in the live auction, while the Windsor ballroom housed the VIP area with live music.
This is not Subban's first visit to our downtown Montreal venue. He previously made a surprise guest appearance at a bar-mitzvah that was held here. Shall he make a return perhaps for a wedding? Maybe his own? Or one of his teammates?
Whatever the occasion, it sure looks like Le Windsor knows how to attract the big names. Contact us now to see how we can make your next event come to life!

Sometimes, the bride and groom hold their wedding ceremony off-site, other times they walk down the aisle in the Peacock Alley, but on occasion they celebrate in our Versailles ballroom under the chandelier. In our downtown Montreal reception hall, we get to see so many various set up styles within the same type of event and last Fall, photographers from the Bachmann team beautifully captured a wedding ceremony celebrated in the Versailles ballroom.

Photo Shoot at Le Windsor!
August 17, 2012
Bessie & Coco Photography recently organized a photo shoot in our venue and showcased some beautiful wedding gowns from Boutique J'Adore. Needless to say, it was pure, simple fun to see the team working together, trying on gowns and getting make-up and hair ready! But, even more, what was inspiring was to see the different talents combine their artistry and passion into the same project.
Here's what Bessie & Coco Photography had to say about the experience:
"As a photographer, I'm always on the lookout for interesting locations where I can shoot with available light. When I saw the ballrooms at Le Windsor, I knew I absolutely had to have a photo shoot there. The large windows, the details on the walls and architecture, the gorgeous chandeliers and overall romantic charm make it a beautiful backdrop. It possesses that opulent, old-world look without being too overdone. When I contacted the Marketing department with my ideas, they were very excited, accommodating and fun to work with. Thank you to all the staff!"
Le Windsor Ballrooms gets another taste of the big screen
June 29, 2012
For the past couple of decades, Le Windsor has been an attractive Montreal film location due to its historic ballrooms, detailed architecture and high ceilings.
The two following movie trailers have beautifully highlighted the magnificent Versailles Ballroom crystal chandelier that Le Windsor has come to be famous for.
Winner of a Cannes Film Festival award, we will not fail to mention that part of the movie, Laurence Anyways was shot right here in our very own ballrooms. Our famous Versailles crystal chandelier is getting a taste of what it is like to be on the big screen.
And last summer, we had the privilege of welcoming big name actors into our ballrooms as the movie, "The Words," was being filmed. The movie is set to come out in theatres in the fall.
Booking your Kosher event has never been easier

Whether the event is a cocktail dinatoire, conference, fundraiser or social occasion, we are ceaselessly amazed at the collaborative efforts of the many different vendors that make an event come to life.
This week, we wanted to highlight a Bar-mitzvah that was held in our ballrooms last Fall. The attention to detail is impeccable. Take a look at some of the photos shot during the event.
Because we, at Le Windsor, have our very own Kosher kitchen, we are perfectly equipped to host any type of Kosher event whether it is a Bar-mitzvah, Bat-mitzvah or wedding.

The Hungarian St. Stephen's Ball
February 29, 2012
On March 31st, Le Windsor will be proud to host yet another memorable event - the 54th St. Stephen's Ball, organized by the Hungarian community of Montreal. This year's theme, titled, "An Evening in Budapest," is expected to draw close to 450 guests in a formal banquet style dinner and dance soirée.
Debutantes will highlight the evening as they are formerly introduced to the guest of honor and perform the traditional Waltz with their escorts.
When asked why they had chosen to hold their gala at Le Windsor Ballrooms, they mentioned that the very first Hungarian St. Stephen's Ball was held here when it beared the name, "Hotel Windsor," and they wanted to bring this special occasion back to their roots. This is now their fourth year in a row that the Ball is held at our venue and we are pleased to have them again. We also cannot wait to see the beautiful décor of flower arrangements, paintings and not to mention the gorgeous ball gowns that the debutantes will be wearing. Who wouldn't want to play "Cinderella" for a night?!

Le Windsor Featured in Wedding Magazine, "Célébrons Mariage"
February 7, 2012
Chic and classic. That was the theme for their eight page spread in their most recent issue.
Our one of a kind wedding venue was chosen as a backdrop for their chic and classic theme as you can see from the photos below.
Our historic marble hallway named, Peacock Alley, was featured along with our gold Chiavari chairs and round tables.
When a bride and groom choose Le Windsor Ballrooms for their wedding reception, they are the exclusive couple in our entire venue on that day. They get access to both our ballrooms, the Salon Windsor and Salon Versailles. And if they so choose, they can hold their ceremony in the Peacock Alley. The wedding ceremony, cocktail and reception all in one venue - Nothing compares to Le Windsor!
The holiday season was merely more than a month away. As we took down the holiday décor in the Peacock Alley, we couldn't help but look back at the beautiful setups from some of the fundraisers, cocktail receptions and Christmas parties that went on! We wanted to share them with you!
