The USD200 million restoration project has been completed with the aim of recapturing the glory days of the hotel, which has remained a period icon with the people of the city.
Andrew Torriani, the president and general manager of hotel, said, ‘We are extremely proud to reopen this emblem of the very best Montreal has to offer. ‘The hotel today is a showcase of modern luxury, but it has not lost the discreet charm of the past or the patina of history.’
The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal is currently offering 98 rooms and 31 suites, including the luxurious 4,700-square-foot, Royal Suite. The current restoration project has preserved the building’s facade, as well as its lobby, the Palm Court, the Oval Room and the famous garden, maintaining many of its early twentieth century decorative details.
The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal, which originally opened in 1912, can also provide 10,000 square feet of meeting space, three dining venues, an indoor pool and a fitness centre.
The mayor of Montreal, Gerald Tremblay, said, ‘The Ritz-Carlton is reclaiming its rightful place here in Montreal and among the guests who stay there. 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. Our city has changed a great deal-for the better. The reopening of The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal makes a notable contribution to what makes our city different.’
