Welcome to Hotel Ambrose

The area we are in is called the Golden Square Mile. Historically, it was an English speaking area and was home to the upper middle class of Montreal. Our hotel was originally two separate homes constructed in 1910.

At some point, the main house where the reception is currently located was owned by a Madame Ambrose. Little is known about her, except for stories from her former tenants who have visited us. Our Family Suite was her Honeymoon Room, which she kept in honour of her late husband for many years, after he passed away in the Second World War. Left with a large building to occupy by herself, she decided to rent out the rooms to

travelers and students. To this day, we still have the original signage of the “Ambrose Travel Lodge” on the glass panel above our main entrance.

In the 1970s, the building was purchased from her as well as the house next door, and a passage was made in the staircase to merge the two sides. It was then converted into a hotel, and has remained so since.

The current owners have operated the hotel since 2011. Many changes have been made to the hotel to keep it updated. Amongst them was moving the breakfast room up from the basement to its current location, which was once a guest room.


Each of our rooms is unique and eclectic, featuring original architectural details and character. We’re sure you’ll find a favourite in one of our 21 units. All rooms are equipped with a 32”+ television, AC and WiFi.
