One of the best hotels in Montreal, the Ritz-Carlton was entirely renovated in 2013 and probably has the most comfortable and best equipped guest rooms in the city. A great hotel for fans of old buildings and classic decor which leaves nothing wanting in terms of comfort.
The Ritz-Carlton is located north of the business centre in the Museum District. Allow a good twenty minutes to walk to the centre. Mount Royal Park is conveniently nearby, and makes a lovely place to stroll in both summer and winter.
Children are not left out at the hotel with a specially designed programme just for them: an inflatable duck and bath products, gifts, biscuits and children-sized bathrobes. Enough to win over these future guests.
Among the top-of-the-range services in the guest rooms, guests can choose their own pillow: feather, foam, firm, soft... If the mattress is too soft for some tastes, don't hesitate to tell reception, who have their methods for satisfying guests.
The first Ritz-Carlton in the world, this luxury hotel opened its doors in 1912. In 2013, it re-opened after 4 years of renovation, unveiling an extremely classic but also extremely luxury style. Marble, gilding, huge paintings, chandeliers; the decor is typical of the Ritz brand, grandiose but classical, traditional with a touch of modernity. Filled with flowers and boasting a period staircase worthy of the Cendrillon opera, the lobby is nevertheless a tad 'old school'.
The 12th floor holds an indoor saltwater swimming pool, heated to excess, which in our opinion is fantastic! On an ecological note, the water in the swimming pool is heated by the heat from the kitchen. For those swimmers who find the space too restricted to really blow off some steam, the pool is fitted with a system that enables you to swim against the current. The view is superb on this floor, with a small terrace from which to admire it. For colder days, there is a gas fireplace adjacent to the swimming pool. What's more, there's a sauna in the room next door. A delightful space and perfectly situated for some time out until 10:00pm.
The long carpeted corridors leading to the guest rooms are very wide, so as to allow the women of the time to comfortably pass through them with their grand dresses. The beige tapestries on the walls go perfectly with the decor.
A state-of-the-art gym is open to guests. Guests can access Facebook or the television from their treadmill, headphones are provided, and there is a good range of machines, but the atmosphere is cold, there are no exterior lights and the adjacent steam room is not very big.
The 129 guest rooms on floors 4 to 11 are exceptionally comfortable. They are all equipped with the latest technology and everything is designed with guests' comfort and tranquillity in mind. From the doorbell that changes colour as soon the heat detector senses a presence in the room, to the remote control that allows you to control the lights, the sound and the curtains, to the Japanese toilets, everything is state-of-the-art in terms of comfort and cleanliness. Everything has been well thought-out: the plug sockets are well located, USB sockets have been added so that guests can charge any type of device without an adaptor, and when you get up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet, floor-level lighting illuminates the pathway without waking the rest of the room. Ingenious ideas that make for a perfect stay.
In terms of decor and amenities, nothing has been left to chance: a Nespresso coffee machine, a kettle on request, period chairs covered in flashy materials, modern lamps, a desk with an office kit (stapler, sellotape, post-its, etc.), a huge flat-screen television, a safe in a drawer equipped with plug sockets, a large walk-in closet, and a perfectly placed bench seat in front of the bay window that doesn't open! The only real flaw in the guest rooms. We were told that you have to ask at reception for the window key, but that seems like a bit too much hassle.The bathrooms deserve as much praise as the bedrooms. Fitted with a heated marble floor and in most cases a shower and a bathtub, they have two wash basins as well as the famous Japanese toilets that we mentioned earlier. That's not all, flat screen televisions have been installed so that you can keep up with the news from your bathtub, the lights can be dimmed or brightened, and guests can choose their beauty products.
French Chef Daniel Boulud runs the restaurant kitchen and proposes refined and tasty dishes, such as iced pea soup with lobster salad ($15-$28/£9-£17 for a starter) followed by cockerel with Quebec green asparagus ($34-$45/£21-£28 for a main course). This very elegant restaurant has adopted the new trend of having the kitchen open onto the dining room, so as to allow guests to see the artists at work behind the glass window. Fireplaces are dotted here and there to add a touch of conviviality. In summer, the best tables are on the terrace by the garden. This little green corner in the centre of the city is full of charm, complete with a duck pond and a waterfall, and is both quiet and refreshing. An impressive wine cellar decorates the restaurant wall. From $50 to $5,000 (£31-£3,100) a bottle, everyone is sure to find something they like. There is the option of a 5-course meal for $85 (£53), excluding tax of course!
Tea is served from 1:00pm to 5:00pm in Palm Court, a lounge in the enormous lobby. This service is charged extra, and in addition to the large choice of infusions on offer, there are also pastries and cakes to tempt even the most gourmet food lovers.
