We stayed at the Hotel Le St James for 2 nights in June. We had a little trouble finding the Hotel, as it is on a corner and the signage is quite subtle. When we eventually realised there is parking around the corner to unload, we got a pleasant surprise when we entered the hotel. It is located a few... More

I just got back from the St. James Hotel in Montreal. The building is an old bank which has been converted into a charming small hotel with friendly staff, an elegant bar and very nice rooms. The location is perfect, walking distance to many shops and restaurants in Old Town and right down the street from the Notre Dame cathedral.... More

Here is an upscale but old style hotel located in the Old Town District and is within walking distance of key visitor locations. Terrific service, nice bar and tapas and updated rooms. If you take a taxi from the airport, pay in cash.

A friend & I stayed at Hotel Le St-James for a quick overnight while we were in Montreal to see a concert. The hotel is beautiful & the staff are all very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 802 which was very spacious & had an incredibly comfortable bed. We loved the heated bathroom floors and the shower -... More

I booked this boutique hotel through the fine hotels and resorts and actually found it to be a great value for a really fantastic and really private hotel. The location is very good in old Montreal and the rooms were quite nice and spacious. I think the shower might have been the highlight of the room. Never have I been... More

This gem of a hotel situated in the beautiful old part of Montreal is worth a visit. From the minute we arrived we felt at home and the friendly staff contributed to making this another memorable experience. Attention to detail and the beautifully furnished rooms was a pleasure to experience. The weekend was worth every penny. A truly inspirational weekend

From the moment Pat helps you out of your car and helps you inside to the moment you leave you will be impressed. All the staff are terrific. The restaurant, spa and bar are great. The rooms are extremely comfortable and well appointed. Grand Old Hotel feel in Old Town Montreal. We hated to leave. When we return to Montreal... More

Stayed 2 nights on business in this small luxury hotel. Excelent laqrge rooms, outstanding bed and good sower. Smakll as it has only 60-70 rooms and staff really is out to please their guests. Excelent front office people and very friendly concierge. Hotel is in the center of it all -business and Old City of Montreal. Real luxury

I stayed here with my friend, who has a lot more reasons than me to be angry about our stay at 'Hotel Le St-James'. My biggest complaint was that halfway through our stay the large suite / room opposite the lifts on our floor emitted the strongest odour of an illegal substance which permeated throughout our floor. We laughed about... More

I stayed recently on business and was very impressed. The hotel is old school (remember the days of leaving your keys at reception?) but with a modern, funky vibe in the communal areas. Rooms were very clean and spacious and with charming decor. The spa was impressive - individual changing rooms with your own sauna and steam room and treatments... More

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
