The William Gray Hotel… Montreal’s Newest Wedding Venue!!
Posted on 22 November 2016
Recently I had the opportunity of visiting the William Gray Hotel, which although has not officially opened they have already achieved 6 Old Montreal Weddings since August….. and the exciting news is that I will be doing my first wedding with them next May!!!. This hotel is the latest in the chain of boutique hotels/restaurants in the Old Port from the Hotel Nelligan, Place D’Armes, Auberge du Vieux Port, Restaurant du Vieux Port & Bevo etc!!
Now you may wonder why the name “William Gray”… well William Gray was born in London UK and came over to Montreal aboard the warship Vanguard and set up home in Montreal in 1760… in fact his home was on Rue Vincent in the old White building now part of the hotel… he had many many roles and an extraordinary life, so I urge you to click here and read more!! His wife was Margaret Oakes, hence the name of their new restaurant at the hotel which leads straight out onto Place Jacques Cartier!
This is a stunning boutique hotel with a magical mix of both old and new, taking two 18th century houses and integrating them into the hotel and located right on place Jacques Cartier so you can’t get more Old Montreal than this AND….. they have an amazing large roof top terrace perfect for both outdoor ceremonies or cocktail parties, and the view is just prime!! What is also great about the terrace is that it is totally exclusive to the banqueting rooms and had it’s own private elevator to take your guests to the top.
Inside the hotel they have 2 main ballrooms located one on top of the each other… both leading onto to the glassed ceiling atrium and both with their own private foyer areas, toilets and coat check! Plus they also have 3 smaller conference rooms.
Wedding packages are starting at $150.00 + + and include the following:
- 1-Hour Open Bar during the Cocktail Hour
- Selection of 4 Hot & Cold Canapes
- 4-Course Menu
- Half a Bottle of Wine per person during dinner
- 3-Hour Open Bar after Dinner
- Complimentary Room for the Couple
And afterwards, you can always bring in some of the famous “Nutella Pizza” right from Bevo Restaurant just opposite!!
Other facilities at the hotel include a gym, spa and rooftop restaurant, a very cute coffee shop and I believe coming soon will also be a plunge pool located between 2 of the buildings. They also have 127 rooms/suites for guests to enjoy!
