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 mix of Pais, the french countryside, and the 90's. While it's not how I would decorate my own home, this is exactly why I come to Montreal and stay at the St-James. It's as foreign as you can get without leaving northeast North America.
The food is very good, better than most hotel food, but not as excellent as some food in Montreal (I thought the breakfast croissants could have been better).
This hotel is elegant and charming and I'm sure to return.
