My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and booked the Amore package. Not only was our room ready when we arrived early, but we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite. The staff were outstanding, the service impeccable and the room was stunning. We won't be back in Montreal for a long time...but when we go back we know where we'll be staying! (And Le Spa is unmissable!)

My husband and I stayed in the Le St. James for five nights in late May. As seasoned world travelers we can say, without hesitation, that this is now one of our top favorites.
The elegant atmosphere and exceptional service was presented even at our very late arrival close to midnight. We were invited to relax in the beautiful library room, with a complimentary cocktail and appetizers.
The room was luxury at its best - a seating area, large bathroom, comfortable bed all designed with exquisite taste.
The staff were all very friendly and eager to assist us.
If only we lived closer than San Diego California...we would go as often as we could!

My husband booked there for my birthday. We were amazed by the service and the quality of the hotel.
The room was amazing: high celling, gorgeous bathroom, and the service : everybody knows our last time and my husband was thrilled, the chauffeur was discrete and classy.
We went to the spa to received treatment : again it was fabulous.
The mix of the old and the modern style is perfect.
Magic stay.

A 2 night business stay. Great room, well furnished and well set out. Very good service. I didn't make it to the bar/restaurant but room service was good. Overall a good boutique hotel that has interesting features without trying too hard (the common boutique error). I liked the vibe and will go back.

If you love to be pampered, The St-James is for you. Old fashion luxury of eras gone by. It's not for every budget but a wonderful experience if you can afford it. It's like taking a step back in time,when hotels made you feel important and valued.Each room is beautifully designed,with no cookie cutter deco.You'll find special touches though out the hotel, from the old fashion keys, to the wonderful restaurant,to the afternoon canapés offered in the lounge,and lets not forget the ever popular chocolate on the pillow. It's located in beautiful Old Montreal a few steps for Notre Dame Cathedral. If the weather isn't nice no worries, it's connected to a wonderful little mall that even has a piece of the Berlin Wall on display . The Metro and Palais des Congrès are also close by. Parking can be a problem in this part of town but at the St.James they also have valet parking. I loved it and will go back...enjoy..

They kept us waiting 5 hours for our room. Beautiful hotel, but staff is inefficient. Would not go back. It's a shame because the location is great. Restaurant looked good, but we had already booked dinner elsewhere.

The location and decor of the Hotel Le St James are fabulous and charming. However, several of the rooms, while nicely decorated and spacious, are so dark they get no natural light whatsoever and face another building. This gives a very dingy feeling. The staff is very nice and friendly, but it appears the hotel does not have a full time concierge - he was not there for a half hour on a weekday morning and on a Saturday morning had not even arrived when we came to the hotel from the airport mid-morning. The doorman also does not greet you and open the taxi door with an umbrella when it is raining, which seems strange for a hotel at this level.
