Residents can dine in the opulent 19th Century mansion restaurant and sleep in style in the 21st century hotel.

The Le Mount Stephen Hotel still bears the stamp of Scottish-born businessman, Lord George Stephen. The exclusive neo-renaissance social club, founded in 1926 and to which he lent his name, has been carefully restored to its original opulent splendour. The unique façade of Le Mount Stephens distinguished boutique hotel sets the tone for an exceptional guest experience.

The Le Mount Stephens Hotel is a unique combination of a 1800s Victorian mansion connected to a new modern hotel. The Le Mount Stephens Hotel is accessed through the Mansion and is modern, contemporary in style and finishing with green fully automated rooms. It boasts a unique royal suite, with private terraces which occupy the top floor with its own private access. Each suite also has a fully equipped private kitchen and lounge area.

The former home of Lord Mount Stephen was designed to be worthy of his fortune and fame. Completed in 1883, the building was designed by William Tutin Thomas and constructed by J.F. Hutchinson. The exterior of the Victorian residence is a fine example of Italian Renaissance architecture, with beautifully sculpted grey limestone walls. The mansion has a basement, first and second floor and an attic, only a few of which have been modified from the original design.

The interior of The Le Mount Stephens Hotel was designed by various Italian and Scottish artists, this gives it a distinct Italian feel, with immense rooms trimmed in high-quality woods; 10 fireplaces with custom onyx, marble and hand-painted tiles; lamps, door handles, ceiling fixtures and hinges made of 22-karat gold; ancient stained and hand-painted glass; and an impressive central stairway. Creating this home today would cost a fortune; it is surely the most unique in all of Montreal.
