Hotel Le St. James

Built in 1870 in the heart of Old Montreal, this hotel features exquisite rooms that will take you back in time. Located at 355 St-Jacques Street, it is located just a few blocks away from the lively riverfront and the downtown business area. It began life as a merchant's bank in 1870, and the opulence of that station of privilege has been both retained and upgraded. The richly paneled entry hall leads to a grand hall with potted palms, carved urns, bronze chandeliers, Corinthian columns, and balconies with gilded metal balustrades. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner are served right in this "Banker's Hall," often accompanied by harp music. Rooms are furnished with entrancing antiques and impeccable reproductions. All have video screens that control lights, room temperature, and even the "do not disturb" sign.
