A bit of mystery shrouds the Hotel Le St-James Montréal. The original documents that disclose the history of the building are sealed in a vault that will not be opened for 100 years, dating back from the time the owners purchased the property. In the late 1800s, the room that Le Spa now occupies served as a vault. It is now illuminated by candlelight and offers a relaxing sanctuary where seaweed wraps, vitamin-supplemented treatment masks and rain showers, Swedish and hot-stone massages, and botanical treatment products are offered.
