We stayed at the St James for my 50th birthday at the end of September. Front desk was kind enough to acknowledge my birthday by sending up lovely chocolates, bottled water, and a card. The key to the room is on a weighted gold tassel...my only thought was adding that weight to my pocketbook, but not to worry, you leave the key at the front desk and just retrieve it every time you come back to your room. Sometimes this was a bit annoying if front desk was helping someone and you felt uncomfortable to interrupt to get the key. The hotel is run as a first class establishment. They want the guest to feel special and attended to. The rooms are quite roomy, very comfy beds, and a very large bathroom. You are greeted every time you enter the hotel and each time you leave. Doorman there at all times. The only problem we had at the hotel was that the mini bar was missing. We did notify front desk and they said they would replace it but that never happened. We only stayed two nights and probably didn't need the cocktails in the room...but always nice to have the option. We did not dine in the hotel, but XO is nicely decorated, we did sit at the bar for drinks and the bartender was very friendly. I will say the food and drink prices are on the high side, this coming from a New Yorker! This hotel is located just right for walking to many great sightseeing spots. I hope to make it back to Old Montreal, and if I do, I will consider another stay at the Le St James.
