"Gorgeous Historical Property"
The Le St. James lived up to it's reputation for sophisticated elegance. I arrived early and my spacious room with it's poster bed was ready upon my arrival. The spa, originally the banks vault is wonderful. The library cozy and relaxing. The bar and restaurant pricey but worth it. Best location for a stroll to old town. Well known as a celebrity, see and be seen location.
"Ideal location for taking in Old Montreal"
This property is ideally located for taking in Old Montreal. During the late 1800s and the early 1900s, this street was the major financial district of Montreal, and many of the older bank buildings have maintained much of their beautiful architecture, but now have other uses. From what I understand, the St. James building was once the Merchants Bank of Canada---the lobby and more particularly XO le restaurant showcase much of the old detailed interior of the building. Our room was decent-sized, with a small sitting area. The staff at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful, we liked the XO restaurant for breakfasts and a lunch (we would recommend if you were in the area to visit the restaurant for lunch or breakfast) and also had a relaxing glass of wine in the bar area.
"Classic in every way"
First class service at every turn. The rooms are so quiet that with the heavy curtains drawn you are insulated from everything. It would be hard to overstate how classically beautiful this place is ... a gem. Downtown in a good location for walking with easy access to taxi, Uber or whatever you need. This old school, rock solid, structure was some sort of financial institution trading, banking or similar. It's worth a stop even just for a drink or bite/meal in the stunningly gorgeous bar and restaurant.
My husband and I stay here every summer. We love the uniqueness of the rooms and the customer service is outstanding. Great area for walking and eating! If you want the best hotel in Montreal, this is the place.
Spent a night at this hotel as part of a package. Included a lovely tasting meal at XO, breakfast and late check out. Was a birthday present for my wife. Great choice, beautiful room, location and professional staff. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our new romantic getaway
