The Ritz-Carlton Montreal opened its doors on December 31, 1912. Since then, the luxury hotel has been the address of choice for discerning travellers and public figures, hosting everyone from Elizabeth Taylor and Queen Elizabeth II to Winston Churchill and the Rolling Stones. A $200-million restoration brought cutting-edge technology to the grande dame, yet guests will still find historic charm throughout, from the luxurious accommodation to the lobby, where the curved front desk has stood since the opening. Today, well-versed palates come to this AAA Five Diamond hotel, the only in Quebec, for Maison Boulud, an upscale restaurant offering a twist on traditional French cuisine and also for the Dom Perignon Bar in the opulent Palm Court. Offering another twist on a familiar setting, the indoor saltwater pool overlooks the city from the rooftop. Set in the heart of downtown, guests can enjoy the surrounding neighbourhood, which includes the Golden Square Mile, high-end boutiques, galleries and museums.
