Located in downtown's Golden Square Mile, the palazzo-style building housing the Ritz-Carlton, known as “La Grande Dame”, has a history dating back to 1912. A $150-million renovation that started in 2008 has modernized the hotel and its 130 rooms and suites. Guest areas include a rooftop indoor swimming pool, fitness center, and restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud. The chef's first venture in Montreal, Maison Boulud serves locally sourced French cuisine and retains the hotel’s famed terrace, pond, and ducklings.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
