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.
How to Get There
The Ritz here is excellent. The rooms are beautiful. The service is top notch. I loved it here and would recommend it to any traveler - traveling for business or pleasure. Our room was beautiful with a lot of nice amenities. The gym is very nice also.
Beautiful hotel and the best service ever. Great hotel that has that old world feel, but the latest in technology. My room was very comfortable. Love the heated toilet seat and all the amenities. Service was top class. Staff very friendly. Only complaint is that they need lighter menu items. Everything was very rich and heavy.
My wife and I recently went to Montreal for a getaway weekend.
We booked the Ritz Carlton and had an unbelievable experience. We received an email a couple days before our stay asking how we could make our stay better. There was a really popular restaurant that normally requires a reservation 3 months in advance that they were able to get us into in one days notice. Their concierge, Anne Marie was amazing. They were able to get us into another super popular restaurant the very next night as well. Not only did they get us the reservations, but then cancelled the ones we had already made as well. They just go above and beyond on everything.
The rooms are very nice and new. They have thought of everything at this hotel. We forgot our gym shoes and they asked which size my wife and I were and brought them up to our room.
The rooftop pool is nice and the restaurant attached to the hotel is also really great.
The toughest part about staying at the Ritz Carlton is having to stay somewhere else afterwards.
I visited the Ritz Carlton Montreal at the end of March beggining of april for my husbands Bday.
Since before the arrival date a very nice and proffesional lady contacted me (Christina Guentensperguer) to arrange every single detail of our vacation, she really made the difference for us to have the perfect holiday! She even prepared ballons and cake in our room, it was a great surprise for hubby!
The front desk was attentive and kind at all times, Specially a gentleman originary from Mexico, i believe his name is Arturo, room was very well equipped, in the small details you can find perfection in this hotel, maple desserts they had waiting for us when we arrive, were exquisite, a great way to feel welcome in Canada!
After 3 days at the Ritz in Montreal, we also spend a couple of nights in Quebec City, the hotel we choose was the Chateau Frontenac but it was just OK, but we were to excited to go back to the Ritz to spend again our last 4 days before departure ♥️
Spa: we had couples massage our last day, we did not book in advance so there was no space, we said to the kind lady at the spa reception we were guests at the hotel, and she immediately said she will figure it out so that we will get the service :)
Maison boulod: the first morning we woke up late so we were ready for bkf around 11:30, we went down stairs and we realize restaurant was close for bkf, a lady in the lobby walk us in and said they will make an exception and serve us bkf for being at “the house” as guests :) we were the only ones in there, we were very thankful as we were starving and did not want to go out at those temperatures (-10 C) just yet.
We also had dinner another day and the food was fantastic (photos attached)
100% i will go back, and recommend this amazing hotel to anybody is willing to expend the money to be treated as Royalty!
Thank you Ritz Carlton Montreal!
There were seven of us at tea and we had a wonderful afternoon. We all chose different types of tea, and enjoyed scones and clotted cream and jam, finger sandwiches (accommodation made for a vegetarian), and mini pastries, all serviced beautifully. We had excellent service and were made to feel very special.
