About the Ritz-Carlton Montreal
Granted the prestigious CAA/AAA Five Diamond Award -- the only one in Quebec -- the Ritz-Carlton Montreal has been the most elegant address in the city since 1912. In May of 2012, the hotel re-opened after an extensive multi-year restoration, which saw the Montreal landmark transformed into a chic and modern space.

Located near many high-end boutiques, galleries and museums, this luxury hotel offers guests 96 guest rooms and 33 suites featuring the latest in high-tech amenities, while details from the original hotel abound to accentuate its seamless mixture of old and new. The hotel's restaurant, Maison Boulud, is operated by the hotel in collaboration with Chef Daniel Boulud and his restaurant management company, The Dinex Group. It was designed by Super Potato, one of the world's most highly reputed restaurant design firms.

The first hotel in the world to combine the Ritz and Carlton designations, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal is located in the heart of Golden Square Mile, home to Montreal's elite in the early twentieth century. A symbol of refinement and elegance, the hotel has welcomed some of the world's best-known heads of state, artists and business magnates. Several of the 20th century's leading figures have stayed there, including the Queen Mother, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Richard Nixon, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Brian Mulroney, George Bush Sr., as well as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who celebrated their first wedding at the hotel.

The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton Montreal
The Ritz-Carlton Montreal also features 45 new Ritz-Carlton Residences, representing the pinnacle of residential luxury combined with the use of all the amenities and services of the finest hotel in the city including concierge service, fine dining, fitness centre, pool and spa. The endorsement by the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC for these residences -- the only branded residences in Montreal -- will be the certificate for the caliber and quality of these residential diamonds. "By attracting prestigious clients from both home and abroad, these residences will further raise the Ritz-Carlton's and Montreal's profile as leading destinations," said Mr. Torriani.
