My partner and I decided on the St. James because of it's 5-star rating and location in the old section of Montreal. I was extremely pleased with the service from the time I made the reservation using Tablet to the time of check out. We have a few friends in Montreal who recommended a couple of top restaurants for dinner - the concierge was able to secure reservations with an excellent table at both locations and was excellent with emailing me in advance. We also took advantage of a couples massage in the spa - a very private and sexy facility. The massages were 'good' while the spa experience itself was incredibly relaxing. You can even book a private steam room at no extra cost after your massage. When we arrived Laurianne at the front desk was superb, granting us an unexpected early check-in (makes all the difference) - they were 'yes' people. I like 'yes' people. The room was a junior suite and was extremely comfortable. We are into bedding so there was no disappointment there. When we drew the curtains, it was completely dark and silent and perfectly comfortable. We actually slept 10 hours the first night - a rare occasion for New Yorkers. Be sure to have dinner down the road at Chasse et Peche (romantic atmosphere and incredible food). Everything was perfect with the hotel as far as old world luxury goes, the only improvement is that there are no views. That being said, I would stay again and recommend it to a friend.
