About The Windsor

Image from official website  

The Windsor is one of Montreal's most historical sites. This Hotel was constructed from 1876 to 1878 and has a very important and long history. The design of the hotel was entrusted to an American architect, William Boyington. The original building of the Windsor Hotel was built in 1878. The hotel was established along the entire block of René-Lévesque (then Dorchester) Boulevard and Cypress Street, between Stanley and Peel (then Windsor) streets, where today is located the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce office tower.
Memorable Visits: 1939-1951 - King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The Windsor later played host to Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, John F. Kennedy and Jean Lesage.
