MONTREAL, CANADA-With the summer film production season wrapping up in Montreal, many celebrities and their crews chose to stay in furnished luxury apartments instead of hotels, according to corporate housing specialist MontrealStays.com, which accommodated a number of the biggest stars who visited the city.
A popular shoot location with Hollywood filmmakers, Montreal sees an influx of production teams especially during the summer months, when the city can stand in for many part of Europe and the United States. Private apartment rentals were chosen by crews that set up shop for weeks at a time more than ever in 2011, said representatives of MontrealStays.com.
"Celebrities and other high profile personalities value their privacy, for obvious reasons, and private apartment rentals afford them that privacy, plus a sense of comfort," said Vladimir de Suarez, Founder and CEO of MontrealStays.com, a division of CorporateStays.com. "We heard over and over again that the experience versus hotels just couldn't be compared," said de Suarez.
MontrealStays.com offers a number of VIP apartments designed specifically with the Hollywood celebrity in mind, as a branch of their corporate rentals business. The units are located across the city, clustered mostly downtown, in the Old Port, and in trendy residential areas like Outremont. Two of the most popular apartments among celebrities are the Masalto Penthouse, a sleek two bedroom with sky-high windows, and the City View Penthouse, the highest penthouse in the city. In the heart of the Plateau, the ultra-luxurious Delirium Duplex was an ideal choice for those with discriminating tastes.
Though costs vary, these luxury units rent for up to $30,000 per month, with 24/7 personal concierge service included. In the case of MontrealStays.com, guests have a la carte services, such as luxury car rentals and private chefs, available to them at all times. The high-end furnishings and service afforded by the rentals also make them popular with hockey players who move to the city.
