Luxury sleep brimming with thoughtful amenities, a Daniel Boulud restaurant, and a location in the buzzy Golden Square Mile
The Golden Square Mile, as this part of Montreal is known, has the lion’s share of the city’s best restaurants, shops, and attractions, so using the Ritz-Carlton as your base means fast access to everything. The property itself was renovated in recent years and has all the amenities you’d expect, including one of the city’s best spas and 24-hour room service. Nespresso machines, pillow menus, and 24” televisions in the bathrooms bring a luxurious touch to the rooms, which are modern and have good-sized desks. The hotel also houses its own art gallery, a small saltwater pool, and a greenhouse that’s part of the Maison Boulud restaurant, helmed by Daniel Boulud, who has three Michelin stars to his name (and counting). The elegant hotel lobby, known as the Palm Court, is home to the extremely tempting Dom Pérignon Champagne Bar—but you can opt for the traditional high tea instead.
In the Area
The Ritz-Carlton is walking distance from much of the best Montreal has to offer, starting with Mont-Royal Park, where you can run, walk, or hike. (Check out the cross-country skiers, ice skaters, and snow-shoers in the winter!) The tens of thousands of artworks that make up the spectacular collection at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts are just two minutes down Sherbrooke Street—allow a minimum of two or three hours to explore. Some of the city’s top beans, from 49th Parallel Roasters, are turned into top-notch espressos and cappuccinos at Café Myriade, four blocks from the hotel. Stop in the lively Biermarkt for a sampling of over 150 different beers, including seasonal Quebec-brewed ales and ciders on tap, before dinner at Taverne Dominion, a chic bistro with classic French dishes, an extensive wine list, and professionally made cocktails.
