How it Ranks: Hotel Le St-James ranks #2 out of 406 Montreal Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Canada.

Our Take: This grand dame of Montreal's hospitality industry sits in the Old City, just a few blocks southwest of Notre-Dame Basilica. Sprawling out behind the stone façade of the former 19th-century Merchants' Bank building, the hotel's 60 guest rooms and suites are outfitted with hardwood antique furniture, marble bathrooms, goose down duvets, Molton Brown bath products and Frette Italian linens, providing guests with upscale accommodations. The rooms come with contemporary conveniences, too, like LCD TVs and high-speed Internet access (for a fee) and iPads (available at the front desk). Recent guests rave about their stay at the Hotel Le St-James, praising everything from the elegant ambiance to the customer service to the variety of treatments offered at Le Spa. XO Le Restaurant also receives glowing reviews for its gourmet cuisine, lauded by visitors and locals alike. However, previous guests warn that the Hotel Le St-James experience doesn't come cheap.
