The Ruby Foo’s brand has been a mainstay in Montréal culture for over half a century.  The restaurant opened in the late 1950’s and established itself as the place to see and be seen. Politicians, Broadway stars and movie actors, as well as the business and sporting elite, all made Ruby Foo’s the top spot in the city. It was class personified, fun and lively.

The hotel first opened its doors in 1962 and quickly became an ideal destination for both business and leisure travelers. In 1984, a group of developers acquired the property with the vision of turning it into a 198-room hotel complex, including a mini-convention centre, a restaurant, commercial space and an office tower. While the original restaurant was closed for good in 1984, the Ruby Foo’s Hotel complex was re-launched with great fanfare on November 25, 1988. 

In recent years, a multi-million-dollar investment and the architectural firm of Lemay Michaud – which has built a stellar reputation for its work on luxury and boutique hotels throughout Canada and North America – has seen the hotel once again take its place among the city’s finest.  The 4-star complex boasts 198 spacious bedrooms, 6,000 square feet of meeting space in eight banquet halls, two restaurants and a barbershop.  

In 2019, the Ruby Foo's embarked on a transformative journey towards sustainability, achieving significant progress in providing guests with environmentally conscious and responsible accommodations and services. Aligned with the principles of sustainability, the Ruby Foo's is dedicated to ongoing enhancements in its environmental and social contributions, ensuring complete transparency in communicating our successes and challenges. The hotel takes pride in its Biosphere Certification and remains steadfast in its commitment to the enduring well-being of the planet and its inhabitants.
