Seamlessly integrated into the urban fabric of Old Montréal, Hôtel William Gray is the result of an ambitious project of construction and transformation that integrated heritage buildings Maison William Gray and Maison Cherrier.
The demanding conditions and complexity of the work in order to ensure the preservation and enhancement of this built heritage posed great challenges and required innovation and ingenuity both for the architects and builders.
Proposing a contemporary concept combining density and refinement, the eight-storey boutique hotel counts 127 rooms. Hôtel William Gray revolves around a central glass roof atrium with an elegant marble and glass staircase that connects the ground floor to services on higher levels such as a conference center, garden terrace, swimming pool and ballroom.
The garden and the restaurants with terraces on various roof levels, as well as the glass corridors on the hotel floors, act as a visual cue for the guests while offering outstanding views of Old Montréal.
