    This hotel is located in the old port and is within walking distance to many of the old port attractions. Mick Jagger and Madonna have stayed here when they visit montreal. This is a great option if you want to experience Montreal.

    The St. James Hotel on the most important street in the Montreal financial district, St. Jacques Street, was built back in the mid to late nineteenth century. It was origninally the Merchant Bank. It costs five grand to stay in this hotel for one day, and that is considerably over my modest budget. When I was in Montreal, Madonna had just been there and had stayed at the St. James. I know, big deal, and yes I feel the same way.

    Beautiful building located in old Montreal. It is close to shops, historical Montreal as well as the financial district.
    The hotels "XO le restaurant" is one of the highest rated hotels in Montreal.
    A pleasure to see and an experience that is quite luxurious.

    Classic old luxury hotel in the heart of Old Montreal. Very nicely appointed and comfortable rooms. Staff was hugely attentive! HIgh likelihood of celebrity sightings (we saw William Shatner).

    Most luxurious hotel in Montreal, for sure... The restaurant downstairs, XO, is amazing too. If you're looking for action, this is not your spot but if you're looking for luxury and quiet, you need to hit this spot!

    I was impressed. I think sometimes I should have been born in the earlier part of the 20th century, something about that classic style that is just appealing to me. First off, the place has a sitting room/library, and I don’t mean just a few books on the shelf, it’s a library that fits into the decor here just as easily as it would in a stately manner or in some old chateau in the south of France. When you walk up to the front desk, you not only appreciate how friendly the staff is, but the wall of keys, each decorated with a red tassel, and although a simple touch, it remains visually powerful and effective. The thing i like the most about the hotel is this, each room is unique and all of the furniture comes from the owners personal collection, amassed from his globetrotting travels. From the restaurant XO to the leather and oak board room, it all incorporates perfectly into the natural flow of the space and every aspect of the hotel seems to be well thought out and intentionally done to provide a sense of exclusivity and prestige.

    Luxurious old-style charm. The rooms were elegant. I loved the tea room and spa was an old bank fault that been converted to an underground spa.
