Hotel William Gray

Montreal, Canada

The hotel

Historic architecture with a modern twist, the William Gray takes you back in time whilst also making you feel at home. Dine on the rooftop, and sip on one of the tasty cocktails whilst looking out at Old Montreal below. Treat yourself and indulge at the spa, complete with a relaxing thermal circuit, Himalayan salt room and an outdoor pool. And if that doesn’t sound appealing enough, the Living Room is where you can have a game of pool, read a book, or pick a record out of the vinyl collection to sit back, relax and listen to.

When visiting Montreal, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else than this wonderful hotel. It offers a great location, comfortable, clean and quiet rooms and superior customer service. Walking distance to Notre Dame and tons of restaurants and speak easy bars.

Very nice hotel that was an excellent value. I could not think of a better spot to experience Old Montreal. Stayed on a business trip with 8 clients and one co-worker, everyone enjoyed the hotel and restaurant.

I stayed at the classy Hotel William Grey during a recent weekend in old Montreal. The hotel is perfectly positioned to explore everything old Montreal has to offer, both day and night. Rooms are stylish and very comfortable and staff were really helpful. The rooftop terrace offered great views and the food wasn't bad either.
