Overview

Modern amenities, professional staff and gourmet cuisine
It is expensive to stay here

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, goose down duvets, Molton Brown toiletries and Frette Italian linens. The rooms come with contemporary conveniences, too, like LCD TVs and high-speed internet access and iPads (available at the front desk). Recent guests raved 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.

It's dripping with dignity--above trends and decor fads--yet modern enough to attract A-list celebrities and those who demand their creature comforts. The location is convenient and the staff is discrete. Plus, there's always a chance of an encounter with rock royalty in the lobby.
