We stayed one night prior to a cruise. Our room had the curtains drawn to conceal the fact we had an unattractive outlook.The room long and thin. We ate in the restaurant which was fine. From our experience the hotel was adequate but not outstanding and very expensive.

I've had the opportunity to stay here a few times over the course of the past two years. The rooms, the service and the atmosphere are amazing. Highly recommended for special occasions when you want to splurge out.

Inspire of the facade being covered with netting to allow for the building repairs, we found the hotel, threw the keys at Eric, the ever ready assistant and checked into a gorgeous room for two nights. Everyone could not have been nicer, the room/ bath / service all impeccable and totally quiet for a city hotel. The Spa was dreamy...

Stayed 1 night on a business trip. Rooms, lobby and restaurant were nice. Service was very friendly, but I cannot recommend this hotel because of functional issues during my stay. For example, the rooms had no ventilation - my room was 78F. Windows could not be opened. Maintenance could only provide a fan,. My colleague also had no ventilation in...

Excellent location within walking distance of everything in the Old City. Expensive, but if your credit card can handle it, there is no other choice. Forget the nearby St. Regis and Intercontinental. The St. James is warm and friendly, and its rooms are lushly decorated in old world fabrics and furnished with beautiful antiques. Some rooms very masculine.

Gorgeous architecture, great 👍🏼 service, food and drinks. Upon checking in we were upgraded two room catagories which is always a pleasant surprise. This hotel also has a great location as it's within walking 🚶 distance to many restaurants, sites etc. My only complaint is that the gym is too small and one treadmill was out of order.

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention centre and retail space with a multi-coloured glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterise the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
