MONTREAL — Following a $20 million renovation, Le Mount Stephen hotel opened today in the space that, for nearly a century, housed the Mount Stephen Club.

“We were deeply committed to this real estate development project, the biggest we have ever undertaken; we wanted to revive this heritage site, while endowing Montreal with a new jewel,” said Mike Yuval, co-founder of Tidan Hospitality & Real Estate Group, which owns the hotel. The property has gained membership in The Leading Hotels of the World.

The 11-storey building houses 90 guestrooms, including nine for guests with reduced mobility: 69 rooms, 16 suites, 4 sky-lofts, and a 5,000-square-foot Royal Suite. All are equipped with digital lighting and curtain controls; 49- or 55-inch IPTV flat screen televisions; free high-speed Wi-Fi; Nespresso coffeemaker; Toto multipurpose sanitary unit with heated seat and automatic flush; bathroom with chromotherapy rain shower head.

The original George Stephen House, which acts as the entrance to the hotel, is home to Bar George, a restaurant from Oliver & Bonacini. Curated by O&B corporate executive chef Anthony Walsh and chef de cuisine Kevin Ramasawmy, the menu offers seasonal dishes highlighting innovative twists on U.K. classics. 

Event spaces include the 5,000-square-foot Elizabeth Grand Ballroom and a meeting room of 1,800 square feet. All the hotel rooms, as well as the fully equipped gym and Mbiospa Prestige Spa, are part of the modern wing.
