Expert Review

Montreal’s crown-jewel property occupies an 1870 building in the heart of the old quarter. Lavish chandeliers, velvet curtains, and fine antiques define its rooms, while details like complimentary shoe-shine, chauffeured Rolls-Royce, a magnificent library, and traditional afternoon tea service set the tone in service. Madonna, U2, the Rolling Stones, and Angelina Jolie have all checked into the handsome 60-room Hotel Le St-James in Old Montreal. But don’t expect rock star antics here. Houses in a historic bank building (the spa’s in the vault), rooms are filled with the owner’s personal art and antiques collection, and the atmosphere is quiet and refined. Rock-star wannabes can up the ante and book the two-bedroom Terrace Apartment for $5,000 per night. Dinner at the hotel restaurant, the XO, is an exquisite affair, or you can show up for cocktail hour and expect a plate of canapés with your drink order. 2010 Smart Luxury Award winner
