On the cutting edge of luxury from the day of its inauguration more than a century ago in famous luxurious Golden Square Mile neighborhood, the Ritz Carlton Hotel, remains premier quality and opulence.
It is where the rich, the famous, financially and politically connected, celebrities, and royalty come to stay when visiting Montreal.
Since it opened in 1912 it remains the first “Ritz Carlton” hotel in North America conforming with original ‘Ritz standards’ of César Ritz owner of London’s celebrated Carlton Hotel.
As my picture shows the edge is where the new wing added recently, merges the modern with the classic iconic original on the exterior this however, is only part of the massive upgrade that was done to ensure ‘Ritz standards’.
A small list of some of the famous international celebrities staying include Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Marlene Dietrich, Tyrone Power, Maurice Chevalier, Douglas Fairbanks, Howard Hughes, Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Richard Nixon, George Bush Sr, and the Rolling Stones.
