From the moment we entered the Hotel Le St-James we found ourselves in a lovely oasis of comfort, elegance, and gracious hospitality within the bustling city of Montreal! We traveled with our small dog, who was made welcomed by hotel staff. Our compliments to hotel and restaurant staff all around! Bravo!

This hotel offers all the accoutrement trappings of the 'old style' charm of bygone days. Plenty of comfort and style in great location and overall good service & friendly staff. One of the shortcoming is that it is relatively dark (was formerly a bank) but overall high marks for a very comfortable stay. I was given a large L shaped... More

I chose this hotel because it was on the Amex hotel selection so we got a few perks. The hotel is beautiful and it has a wonderful breakfast and restaurant. The service was great and it was walking distance from the main attractions.

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.
