Well located in Old Town Montreal, this carved-stone boutique hotel provides height of pampered luxury. A former bank, the public spaces combine historic architecture with elegant finishes. The bar/restaurant, XO, has excellent breakfasts, lunches and dinners with a European flair. We were fortunate enough to stay in one of the several unique suites - ours with a wood paneled, library-like...

Beautiful hotel. Warm, inviting, gorgeous! Service is outstanding. Bar and restaurant are not-to-miss. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Montreal, as I look forward to our stay at the Hotel Le St-James as much as our visit to City.

Great location, beautiful interior. Service could not have been better. Room was outstanding, the bed a dream. We were here for my birthday and my wife purchased a package that included a six course chef's menu at the restaurant XO and full breakfast served ensuite. Dinner was amazing - innovative, thematic, modern and delicious and graciously served. 100% great!

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.

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.

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.

Staying in Quartier International

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.
