The rooms at The Ritz-Carlton Montreal strike just the right balance of luxurious beauty, chic comfort and Old World elegance. All 96 guest rooms and 33 suites have a palette of warm neutrals that highlights the building’s charming historic architecture. The most basic accommodations are the 400-square-foot deluxe rooms that come with a king-size bed, 47-inch LCD flat-screen and work desk. The accompanying marble bathrooms are outfitted with heated floors, a 24-inch flat-screen television and a Toto electronic toilet. The 500-square-foot signature rooms offer the same amenities, but with the addition of a deep-soaking tub and separate shower.
If you need more space, check out the suites. The junior suite is spread across 600 square feet and includes an open sitting area. The 900-square-foot one-bedroom suite takes up a corner and provides a city view (there’s only one of these rooms on each floor). Also in a corner is the 1,000-square-foot executive suite at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, but it has a garden view and a large walk-in closet (there are only two of these accommodations, set on the ninth and 10th floors). The best option is the Royal Suite, a 4,700-square-foot beauty that is the largest hotel suite in Montreal. It boasts 12 rooms, including a dining room, butler’s pantry and security office.
Rooms at the Montreal hotel are a gorgeous embodiment of then and now, from the Old World beauty of marble fireplaces and hardwood floors to high-tech amenities like proximity cards that never de-magnetize; heated bathroom floors and counters; rain, power or steam showers; Asprey toiletries (though suite guests get Bulgari White Tea, Fresh, Kiehl’s, Antica Farmacista or Acqua di Parma products); and Nespresso machines stocked with complimentary coffee.
