Highs & Lows

  • Beautifully designed ground-floor living room with OTH streetwear boutique and Montréal staple Café Olimpico, creating an authentic and lively hangout spot in Old Montréal for creative locals & international guests alike.

  • Conveniently located in the heart of the Old Port with stunning 18th-century architecture. A truly authentic European savoir faire in North America.

  • Loved the contrast of the two historical front buildings (Maison William Gray & Maison Cherrier) with the ultra-modern glass tower built above.

  • Hotel William Gray ditched the outdated in-room iHome for a sleek Bang & Olufsen Bluetooth speaker, perfect for crisp personal background music.
