Keys to History
The St. Lawrence Hall Hotel, on St. James Street near Place d'Armes, in the heart of the business district, was the most prestigious hotel in Montreal before being outclassed by the Windsor. During the 1890s, however, it was still one of the best hotels in the city. The Canadian Pacific Railway Company had a ticket office on the ground floor of the hotel during this period. The building was torn down in 1910s and replaced with an office building.
