Third time here -- always amazing. Excellent linens and towels + perfect service. Looking for 5 star -- this is it. Restaurant was booked when I arrived, so they recommended Gibby's restaurant which is so, so good!

We were here recently and had a great stay. We booked through the Chase Fine Hotels program and were upgraded to a junior suite. Very nice room! The staff were among the nicest people I have ever encountered in a hotel. Everyone went out of their way to say hello to you. The location was just a few minutes walk... More

Lovely hotel. Comfortable rooms. Nice linens and towels. Staff extremely kind attentive and helpful. decor is somewhat dated and everything is a bit dark but it's clean and comfortable. The restaurant is a little unappealing in that it's big and often empty but the breakfast happened to be very tasty and the service attentive and warm. Well-located in old Montreal.... More

My wife and I just stayed at this wonderful hotel during a long weekend in Montreal. You feel like you are the only guest there because the service is so lovely. The turndown service every night is a treat to come back to before bed. Beautiful room, comfortable bed, and overall a great experience.

My partner and I decided on the St. James because of it's 5-star rating and location in the old section of Montreal. I was extremely pleased with the service from the time I made the reservation using Tablet to the time of check out. We have a few friends in Montreal who recommended a couple of top restaurants for dinner... More

We have stayed in several hotels in Montreal and we enjoyed Le St-James above all others. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a corner suite, which was beautifully appointed with traditional French toile. Because it was a corner room it was light and airy. The bathroom was spacious, well-appointed, and stocked with Molton Brown accessories, including a complimentary air... More

We had two executive suites next door to each other. The hotel is older and the interior of the rooms are decorated in a traditional style. Rooms are dark as the windows are small, it was a bank in a prior life. Bathrooms are nice and the staff is friendly. This is not a five star hotel as the amenities... More

I travelled to Montreal for a friend's milestone Birthday in May. I chose Hotel Le St. James for a few reasons, but mostly to treat myself for a night of luxury. Based on most of the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor regarding luxury accommodations in Montreal, this was the place to stay. I wasn't disappointed in the least.... More

Very disappointed in this hotel.As a frequent traveler I have stayed in many gorgeous hotels and as a architectural edifice the St James is worth the trip to Montreal on it's own.The problem lies within the hotel walls(literally) as I made my way to the restaurant I noticed something in the corner of my eye but dismissed it,later on I...

We thought this was a lovely hotel with a nice, large room, great service and a gorgeous restaurant. You can easily walk to the Old Town and taxis are usually outside waiting on guests that need a ride to a destination. A special perk here is the library where you can order a drink until 3am. We would certainly stay... More
