Hello Friends/Family.

Tomorrow, I'm leaving on a jetplane to my new home for the next 4 months: Prague, Czech Republic. I'm going on exchange to Prague's School of Economics to study my last semester of my MBA, as part of my program at McGill.

I know I should be stressed and anxious about the work ahead, but I'm really ...

... by the gate to the grounds so we could gaze at the clock and the lovely manicured gardens but we then moved on shortly after. We proceded down Rue Notre Dame Ouest and worked our way through the streets until we reached Palace Royale. This was the spot where the settlers first landed and where they established there first fort, Ville Marie. There was a definate need for a fort in this location when the settlers first arrived due to lengthy and consistent battles with ...

... There is still division today, mostly among the politicians, but somewhat with the people too. Even though Canada has 2 official languages, English and French, English is seldom seen in Quebec. Especially on highway signs, which makes it a little more difficult for us to navigate around.

Tuesday we went into the city with Gray Lines again. Since it was such a nice day, we decided ...

... to spend all of Canadian money. I bought my self a shirt that has Canada flag and says Eh? As we were walking it started to rain, so we went inside a cafe that sold macaroons. I got two macaroons; raspberry and chocolate... Yumm it was a great day and everyone was tired. So once again we piled into the bus to head back to the states. My adventures are waiting! Bisous!

Thats what we did. For a while... Each on our own this time, we embark on another journey, a one to find ourselves and a place we could call home. For years.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le St-James Montreal

    Star Gazing at the 5 Star Le St James

    from

    Run, do not walk to this fabulous hotel! We stayed for 4 wonderful nights in July. Upon arrival, the doorman began using our names, cleverly read from of our luggage tags. Nice touch! From the engraved invitations for two complimentary 30 minute Spa treatments to amazing, last minute dinner reservations made for us by the concierge, this hotel oozes class and sophistication. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we visited with Charlie Sheen and his wife, Denise while sharing the Spa! Opulent rooms, palatial bathrooms and friendly service! We can't wait to get back. This time we are not leaving the hotel!!!!

    My Best Hotel Experience

    from

    Let me get this bold statement and get it out of the way quickly . . . the Hotel Le James was absolutely the best hotel experience I have had in my life! Obviously, how one rates a hotel is purely subjective but, to give you a frame of reference, my trip also included three nights at the famous Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City and there was no comparison . . . the Hotel Le St. James pampers you and pampers some more. I have always stayed in larger resorts/hotels but the Le St. James will make me rethink that.

    Absolutely Pampered!

    from

    We took a spur of the moment trip up to Montreal in February, and had a most fabulous time at the St. James! We chose it based on the TripAdvisor reviews, as no one seemed to have anything bad to say about it, and it more than lived up to our expectations. The service was superb throughout our stay. Jean Pierre was our favorite concierge, and he made our stay oh-so-wonderful with fabulous dinner reservations (he really was instrumental in all ways in helping us to enjoy Montreal and Quebec). The common rooms at the St. James have an old world feel, and there's nothing like taking a cognac in the library at the end of the evening, sitting at the fire in a cozy leather chair. Our room was simple and terribly elegent in its furnishings, in beautiful muted tones with great attention to detail. The marble bathroom was something to behold, with a roman-style tub and a separate shower stall with a rainforest shower head, and Penhalligon's toiletries (the scent was out of this world). The spa (in the former vault of this onetime bank) was astounding, with stone walls and a vaulted ceiling, and underlit marble floors. We had facials and massages together, and I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. The changing room has a sauna, a steamroom, and a shower room (again, marble) with ten or so shower heads so it feels like taking a bath standing up. We loved the St. James, and most highly recommend a stay at this fabulous hotel!

    Montreal's Gem

    from

    I have been to Montreal several times over the past year and a half and have stayed at the luxurious St. James twice. This is as nice a hotel as any I have stayed at anywhere in the world. It is impeccably decorated in the manner of a European boutique hotel and is located in the outskirts of Old Montreal. It is elegant without being pretentious. The hotel staff are top rate. I have been to Montreal mainly on business, and enjoy this hotel even under those circumstances when I haven't typically had a lot of time to spend enjoying its amenities; however, on one occasion I had my wife with me and this is definitely one of the places to stay if you are looking for a romantic (albeit higher end for Montreal--this is not a hotel with bargain hunter's prices) accomodation.

    A true definition of class.

    from

    The Le St.James is a hotel you have to stay at when in Montreal. The exterior architecture is stunning, the interior has been done to a tee. The service is excellent and the quality of food delivered to your room is second to none. Granted the price of this hotel may not be for everyone, but if you can afford it then make it a definite stay on your next visit to Montreal and you will not be dissappointed. The hotel does cater to many high profile guests. It is small but that does add to the intimacy and service that you would expect. This is a definite 5 stars plus in my books.

    Far from the ordinary

    from

    The architecture, design elements, interior spaces, feeling, were all extroadinary. The manager greeted me on entering. I didn't want to leave my special corner of this rare and unique hostelry that is truly a destination in itself. Thank you!

    Elegance, Charm and Friendliness

    from

    Stayed at the St. James from 12/26/03 to 01/02/04. The hotel is in a wonderful location in Old Montreal. The staff are friendly, helpful and consistent in providing exceptional service. The rooms are exquisite, down comforters and pillows, top-of-the line sound system, impeccably clean with full amenities. The bathrooms are marble with plenty of personal storage space, lovely towels, robes, slippers, and bath products. The spa is open to all guests for steam, sauna and exercize as well as a fee based massage service. Take the time to enjoy it all.

    See it to Believe it

    from

    This is the most incredible hotel in Montreal. On par with Windsor Arms in Toronto. Only 60 rooms, most suites. We got upgraded to the Nesbitt suite, what a pleasure! Spa accepts only one client at a time, very personal service. Each room has a unique style, so be sure to discuss that with res desk before you commit. They will reserve specific rooms for you.

    Very nice, but for the price?

    from

    Le St. James is right next to the InterContinental, on the NW edge of the Old Port. This location is great as you miss all the touristy junk associated with the area, and are closer to downtown and the (excellent) Metro system.

    Perfection

    from

    This is a perfect small hotel. The decor is in perfect taste, the public rooms are stunning, the service is unobtrusive and flawless. Morning coffee, ordered for 7:30, came at exactly 7:30.

    There is no restaurant, but there is a breakfast buffet and some room service, and many restaurants within a block or two.

    This is the best hotel in Montreal for a quiet stay. It is also the most expensive hotel in Montreal. Our suite was 900$ ($550 US) but I thought it was worth it.

    My one concern was the occasional creak in the floors. This is an old builiding. Did the renovation keep the original woodedn floors, and what does that mean for fire safety?
