So, it's a Ritz Carlton. You'd expect only the best, right? Well, that's what you get at the Ritz Carlton Montreal. First of all, the staff is as friendly and helpful as we've ever experienced. On our arrival (by car), Doorman Nicholas took control, handling our luggage and seeing that the car was taken care of. Once inside, our reservations were processed in no time flat. Oh, oh, the room is not ready? No problem. Go to the lovely lounge and have a cocktail - the room is ready before we've had two sips. Andre (the nicest guy you'd ever meet in a hotel) gives us a tour of our room - and we really needed a tour! The room was a lovely corner room on the ninth floor. Andre explained the room's lighting system (very fancy). It even had a sensor that turned on some lights if you get out of bed during the night to use the bathroom. (We never did figure out how that worked). Speaking of the well-appointed bathroom, it was equipped with a state-of-the-art Toto toilet. The seat moves up and down automatically, it flushes automatically, it has three bidet settings as well as several pulsing and positioning options (I found this intimidating, yet interesting), and the seat is heated. (It might have been nice if I could have figured out how to turn the heat off sometimes). There is no concierge floor at this Ritz. Never mind - the lobby concierges, big Simon and little Simon, among others, provided excellent service in suggesting and reserving restaurants and proving worthwhile tour advice. A truly wonderful experience. When next in Montreal, we will again stay at the Ritz.
