This is our second time at this lovely property and our stay was fantastic from start to end. When we checked in GM Vittorio personally came to greet us which was such a kind gesture and kudos to him for operating such a beautiful property and one of the best team he has under his leadership! Tom the valet person was great and always there to help and goes an extra mile! Sabina at the concierge was so helpful with all our request! We only have great things to say, if its Old Montreal it is only going to be William Gray Hotel. Great location, amazing staff and fabulous hospitality, can ask for more! Kudos William Gray Hotel.. Best Wishes, Andy

Lovely hotel and friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were were on small side but extremely clean and beds and pillows very comfortable. Bathroom was quite narrow but amazing shower! The rooftop igloos and outdoor bar were such a treat and the hotel restaurant on main floor was phenomenal as well! Very centrally located in the old town area.
