The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal
Standing proud for over a century, The Ritz-Carlton Montreal has long been one of the city’s most esteemed 5-star hotels. Today it continues to ooze comfort, luxury and glamour following a dramatic make-over that sees historical details blended perfectly with modern styles and sensibilities.
Few can compete with the gastronomic options on offer at the Ritz-Carlton, from afternoon tea served in the beautiful Palm Court lobby and the clinking of flutes in the Dom Pérignon Champagne Bar, to the elevated French fare of Maison Boulud, an open-kitchen restaurant from two-Michelin-star chef, Daniel Boulud.
It’s a similar twist on classic luxury in the newly renovated rooms and suites, where palatial beds and marble fireplaces sit alongside modern furniture, Nespresso coffee machines and either garden or city views.
Facilities include the impressive Spa St. James, famous for its maple sugar massage, a 24-hour fitness centre and an indoor saltwater pool with views of the city skyline.
