Montreal is a forward-thinking, contemporary city infused with a deep sense of history and Hotel William Gray is a microcosm of this beautiful dichotomy.

The Atmosphere

When you turn the corner onto a narrow Old Montreal street and see Hotel William Gray, you’ll see an 18th century greystone exterior that belies the chic, contemporary wonderland within. Which is somewhat of a lovely allegory for Montreal itself, with its deep sense of history layered with exciting, new ideas in food, culture and art. In the lobby, there’s exposed wood beams, dangling, tear drop light fixtures and lots of dark metal accents operating in harmony for a decidedly stylish effect. The hotel is located in the heart of Montreal’s Old Port, providing a great vantage point from which to explore. Or, of course, you could opt to stay in and enjoy poke bowls at the hip rooftop bar and cafe or perhaps a healing warm quartz massage at the hotel spa.

Your Room

Just like the lobby, expect your room to be sleek and design-forward. Plus, there’s a multi-jet rain shower and Le Labo bath products in every room.

Food & Drink

There are several dining options for every mood at Hotel William Gray. The main restaurant, Maggie Oakes, collaborates closely with local producers to provide an honest glimpse into local flavors. Think: Canadian beef, local vegetables and aromatic herbs. There are also two terrace dining options on the fourth and eighth floors, both with great food, beautiful urban views and inventive cocktails.
