The prestigious Ritz-Carlton Montréal reopens after a $200 million transformation

May 28, 2012 marked the official reopening of the Ritz-Carlton Montreal, following an extensive $200 million restoration, where no expense was spared in combining the latest amenities with the splendour of the past and the distinction of a leading hotel. The Grande Dame of Sherbrooke Street is back—in all her glory.

Along with the hotel’s reopening, Montreal will also be welcoming two global icons of sophistication: the acclaimed Maison Boulud restaurant and the legendary Tiffany & Co. jewellery boutique.

A first-class transformation

Under the direction of Quebec architectural firm Provencher Roy + Associés, the iconic Montreal hotel underwent an exhaustive transformation. The building’s facade was preserved and restored, public spaces were renovated and upgraded, and the guestrooms were redesigned to feature the very best in luxury and comfort. The Ritz-Carlton Montreal now has 98 rooms and 31 suites. The 4,700-square-foot Royal Suite is the largest hotel suite in Montreal.

The building’s façade was preserved and restored, as were the Lobby, the Palm Court, the Oval Room and the hotel’s famed garden. Many decorative details from 1912, such as marble fireplaces in some of the suites, reflect this masterful blend of old and new.

While the guestrooms are comfortable and welcoming, they also feature high-tech amenities, such as thermostats that intuitively remember a guest’s temperature preferences upon check-in, and motion sensors that activate lights when guests enter a dark room.

Sophisticated contemporary amenities

The 10,000 square feet of meeting space are flexible and offer event planners the possibility of accommodating up to 300 people.

Guests can dine at acclaimed chef Daniel Boulud’s restaurant, Maison Boulud, in the 130-seat dining room, and in the 46-seat year-round greenhouse. They can enjoy afternoon tea in the hotel’s impeccable gardens, work out at the gym or take a dip in the new indoor salt-water pool.

Host to the world's best-known stars

Inaugurated in 1912, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal is located in the heart of the Golden Square Mile, home to Montreal’s elite in the early twentieth century. A symbol of refinement and elegance, the hotel has welcomed some of the world’s best-known heads of state, artists and business magnates. Several of the 20th century’s leading figures have stayed there, including the Queen Mother, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Richard Nixon, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, George Bush Sr., as well as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who celebrated their first marriage at the hotel.
