"Lovely Charming Hotel"
Our family stayed for 5 nights during the holidays. Conveniently located in Old Montreal. A short walk to the Notre Dame Basilica and other historical sites. The underground city or shopping network is also accessible from the rear of the hotel (something we were not told about and stumbled upon on our 4th day). Service was excellent. The bellman and/or concierge were always available to greet us as we departed and arrived. They assisted with directions and cabs when necessary. The concierge provided a list of restaurants to our agent ahead of time. Of the ones we selected, we were not disappointed. We dined at French, Portuguese, Spanish, and Japanese restaurants. Each with their own unique vibe. We had a suite and a room with two doubles. It was the perfect amount of space for us. The hotel is charming and quaint. Its an old Bank Building. Beautiful to look at. Given the age of the building, there are some quirks. The shower temperature fluctuated abruptly. The beds were comfortable, towels plush and soft, and there was ample additional seating and writing/work areas in the rooms. The full length mirrors were awkwardly located on the closet door which does not stay open. There is a mini fridge, television, and small safe in the room. There's a turn down service with fresh bottles of water each evening. The 9th floor is quiet.
"Beautiful architecture, needs some updating, get a suite"
we went to montreal for a family vacation this summer with our children and wanted to stay in the old city of montreal. we were recommended this hotel by friends, but were confused by the online reviews if it was still nice or not. the larger 5-star hotels were all booked up so we decided to go with this one. we got 2 superior double rooms and 1 executive suite. its in a nice location in old montreal, but note that its a 10-15 min walk to the harbor/old port. where all the action is (not bad, but not right there). when we pulled up, no one came out to meet our car and we weren't sure how to get our luggage up because it seemed to be a door with steps only. after one of us went in, a bellman came out, and took care of the luggage happily. (when i asked how they accommodate wheelchairs, they said there is a side entrance that is wheelchair accessible). we had a stroller but we just carried it up and down the stairs. the concierge (Eddy) was VERY nice and helpful. its a small-sized quiet boutique hotel with beautiful older architecture - it used to be a bank. it's not worn down, but it could use some updating in the rooms. we had 3 diff rooms on 3 diff floors and each floor is different and unique. note that on some upper floors, there is a step up to access some of the rooms (so if wheelchair accessibility is needed, keep that in mind). the suite was definitely the nicest of all the rooms, and i'm told each suite is unique. if you plan to stay here, definitely get a suite. the other regular rooms were not so special, but were fine and nice. the two regular rooms were got did not have bathtubs, only showers (not sure if that applies to all the superior rooms or just happened to be in the ones we got - ask first if you need a bathtub for a child or prefer one). the bathrooms were clean and more updated feeling, with marble, though the one on the upper floor was quite tiny. the room on the upper floor also had a window that faced indoor machinery. the suite that we got had a very large living room area - enough to have fit 2 rollaway beds if we would have needed (there was a confusion at one point and they put them in the room, but we did not need them, but we were able to see it could have fit. useful for a family! it also has 2 washrooms). the suite was slightly on the cold side (strong a/c). i didnt notice that in the other rooms. when i tried to get a room online it said it was sold out - but when i called the hotel directly they were able to find us these last 3 rooms, so that was great (even though they were all on different floors). our car came quickly when we called it from valet. there was free wifi. there is only one elevator which causes some time delays but nothing horrible. all in all, it was a very nice hotel in old montreal that helped you get a feeling of what the old city looked like and felt like. i wouldn't call it 5-star because the rooms didn't have that newly updated feeling, but it's a 4.5 for sure. i saw a difference between the different rooms so ask when booking. oh, and it has a very classy old-style living room feeling main common reading room in the lobby - so cute!
"a special 10th birthday with MomMom and PopPop"
Such a great location. The metro is right below the hotel. And the hotel is beautiful! Our room was large, wonderfully decorated and so comfortable. Room service was fast and the hotel staff were lovely. Thank you to Le St James for making the special trip a memorable one.
"Nice Hotel "
The location of the hotel is good. It’s walking distance from the old Montreal, but not that close. When the weather is really cold you may want to stay at a closer hotel. The staff is friendly. Nice place to stay when you come to Montreal.
"What an elegant hotel!!!"
Absolutely loved our 4-night stay at this venerable hotel in the heart of Old Montreal. The wow factor is everywhere. The building is stunning, as is the lobby, lounge, library and spacious bar. They upgraded our room from a standard to a deluxe double which was most appreciated. Such a lovely and luxurious bedroom and bath. The location is perfect to explore Montreal’s many charms by foot. And what a fantastic city it is!!!! Dozens of outstanding restaurants and coffee houses are right out the front door. The staggeringly beautiful Basilica of Montreal is a 5 min walk. You just can’t do better than the swanky Le Saint James. Worth every penny. We’ll definitely be back!
