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.

What a lovely hotel with a beautiful view and great location. Clean well kept comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Many small little things done by the staff add to the stay. The coffee machine in the rooms in cold weather is very handy. Concierge is very helpful too.

My husband and I spent our "big-milestone" Anniversary trip here at William Gray. We were planning to go to France but because of COVID, we did not want to travel. We made the right choice to have a driving trip to Montreal and stayed at William Gray. I was debating between Ritz or Four Season, and I'm glad I made the right choice to come to William Gray. The hotel is centrally located in Old Montreal, very pretty and the environment is so romantic. It's at the centre of all the cultural landmarks and nice restaurants. We got the "best" suite in the hotel, and enjoyed the sunrise and sunset from the balcony. The view and scenary was breath-taking. The staff are very friend expecially Tomas from the front desk who made us feel very welcome. We also appreciated the hotel gave us a bottle of prosecco to celebrate our big milestone anniversary. The stay was indeed memorable and we'll definitely come back! Read less

We stayed at the William Gray for our anniversary in August 2020. Due to COVID we didn’t feel comfortable travelling very far and even the idea of walking into a hotel made us feel a little concerned and anxious. Upon our arrival at William Gray all of our concerns and worries subsided as hotel staff kept safe distances, wore masks, offered us our own personal luxury antiseptic spray upon check in and tended to our every need. The courtesy car service took us to our dinner 3km away and Jonathan made sure to come pick us back up when we were finished. We had the absolute best stay with William Gray...a true staycation getaway in our own city and can’t wait to come back! Read less
