The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal reopens after $200-million restoration

The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal reopened after a $200-million restoration under the direction of Quebec architectural firm Provencher Roy + Associes. 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, with the 4,700 square-foot Royal Suite now the largest hotel suite in Montreal.

The building's facade was preserved and restored, as were the lobby, the Palm Court, the Oval Room, and the hotel’s garden. Many decorative details from 1912, such as marble fireplaces in some of the suites, have been revived.

The guestrooms also feature high-tech amenities, such as thermostats that remember guests’ temperature preferences upon check-in, and motion sensors that activate lights when guests enter a dark room.

The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal’s amenities include the 10,000 square feet of meeting space that can accommodate up to 300 people, and dining venue Maison Boulud, which has a 130-seat dining room, the 46-seat year-round greenhouse, and the new terrace on Sherbrooke Street. There are also the gym and a new indoor saltwater pool.

The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal has 129 entirely redesigned guestrooms and suites, as well as 46 new luxury residences. The hotel’s restaurant was designed by Super Potato. Chef Daniel Boulud manages the restaurant operations with his company, Dinex Group.
