These type of old fashioned hotels are not really my cup of tea. However, the rooms are clean including the carpet, the bathroom is nice and the service is great. They have no Nespresso machines in the room and the Cappuccino I have ordered was undrinkable.

This is a great hotel with a wonderful spa and nice rooms. It's location is charming and allows easy access to most parts of the city—I walked everywhere even in the cold weather. The hotel's public spaces have been renovated since I last stayed here and they're not really my taste, but they're fun and seem distinctly Montreal: an unusual... More

Hotel is small boutique size located in old Montreal. Staff is world class. Probably best service ever. Hotel itself is gorgeous and spa experience was like no other. It is a must stay and will definitely return.

I just returned from a weekend in Montreal, staying at Le St-James and I couldn't have asked for anything more. The room was superb, the staff was beyond friendly and helpful without being pretentious. We did have a problem with our TV and they quickly, and gladly upgraded us to a new room which was even more fantastic. The city... More

Hard to explain how great this place is. My room was beautiful, had a great view, bed was super comfy, and whole hotel was really clean. Location is key and this is the area where you want to be. I just can't say enough about this place. Lots of stuff yo do, if you ever leave the hotel :)

This is a quintessential Old Montreal boutique hotel. Unfortunately we had a room that was directly above the front door which opens electronically every 10 seconds or so. It definitely detracted from our stay. The spa, though, is spectacular. Having a massage in the spa with it's original stone walls and candles everywhere is truly amazing. Loved it.

I booked this hotel for a two night stay to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was on St. Jacques street, in Old Montreal. It was in easy walking distance to Notre-Dame Basilica, and all of the great old montreal touristy things. We were able to walk to most everywhere, and not get cold (it was a February trip). The restaurant... More

Beautiful luxury hotel and from what I saw in the city, best of the bunch. Super location and fabulous staff but a few tiny niggles like wifi that is chargable and free continental only breakfast (which was beautiful on most days though variable and poor/defrosted some days)

From the doormen that immediately take care of the valet car parking, to the professional and friendly front desk staff, the Hotel Le St. James is one of the best boutique hotels I have ever visited. There is a reason why this hotel has made the small luxury hotels of the world list. I experienced this hotel for breaking in... More

Wow! A small boutique setting with old charm elegance and beautiful décor. Each room is unique in its own design. Only some bathrooms have no where to hold toiletries and most rooms have little or no drawer space but lots of closets. It is otherwise a lovely place to stay when in Montreal. Lofty down pillows make for a soothing... More
