Location is perfect. In the middle of old town, right behind the Notre Dame Cathedral. Our room was a split level with the bedroom and main bathroom upstairs and the seating area and a half bath downstairs. Access to both floors in case you have difficulty with stairs. The brick walls provided a charming decor. Since we visited in the... More

We had the most romantic weekend here. I will never stay anywhere else when I am in Montreal. The staff were so accommodating, the rooms and common areas were absolutely exquisite. Well worth the money!

My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and booked the Amore package. Not only was our room ready when we arrived early, but we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite. The staff were outstanding, the service impeccable and the room was stunning. We won't be back in Montreal for a long time...but when we go back we... More

My husband and I stayed in the Le St. James for five nights in late May. As seasoned world travelers we can say, without hesitation, that this is now one of our top favorites. The elegant atmosphere and exceptional service was presented even at our very late arrival close to midnight. We were invited to relax in the beautiful library... More

My husband booked there for my birthday. We were amazed by the service and the quality of the hotel. The room was amazing: high celling, gorgeous bathroom, and the service : everybody knows our last time and my husband was thrilled, the chauffeur was discrete and classy. We went to the spa to received treatment : again it was fabulous.... More

A 2 night business stay. Great room, well furnished and well set out. Very good service. I didn't make it to the bar/restaurant but room service was good. Overall a good boutique hotel that has interesting features without trying too hard (the common boutique error). I liked the vibe and will go back.

If you love to be pampered, The St-James is for you. Old fashion luxury of eras gone by. It's not for every budget but a wonderful experience if you can afford it. It's like taking a step back in time,when hotels made you feel important and valued.Each room is beautifully designed,with no cookie cutter deco.You'll find special touches though out... More

They kept us waiting 5 hours for our room. Beautiful hotel, but staff is inefficient. Would not go back. It's a shame because the location is great. Restaurant looked good, but we had already booked dinner elsewhere.

The location and decor of the Hotel Le St James are fabulous and charming. However, several of the rooms, while nicely decorated and spacious, are so dark they get no natural light whatsoever and face another building. This gives a very dingy feeling. The staff is very nice and friendly, but it appears the hotel does not have a full... More
