“We are extremely proud to reopen this emblem of the very best Montreal has to offer. “said Andrew Torriani, president and general manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal, in an announcement. “The hotel today is a showcase of modern luxury, but it has not lost the discreet charm of the past or the patina of history.”
Under the direction of Quebec architectural firm Provencher Roy + Associés, the building’s facade was preserved and restored, public spaces were renovated and upgraded, and the guestrooms were redesigned. 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.
Many decorative details from 1912, such as marble fireplaces in some of the suites, reflect the blend of old and new. Guestrooms also feature 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.
