The iconic Ritz-Carlton, Montreal will reopen after an extensive $200 million restoration. 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. The hotel features 10,000 square feet of meeting space.
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., the Rolling Stones and Celine Dion, as well as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who celebrated their first marriage at the hotel.
“The Ritz-Carlton is reclaiming its rightful place here in Montreal and among the guests who stay there,” said Montreal’s mayor, Gérald Tremblay “Since it opened in 1912, the hotel has been one of the most elegant addresses in our city and the jewel of the storied Golden Square Mile, close to high-end boutiques, galleries and museums.”
