convenient location in heart of Montreal business core. Stayed in a king room. Unfortunately the reality is that he room is Micro sized with barely enough space to open the doors. Great view. Pleasant service.

Part way through a week-long solo business stay. Initial impressions quite nice. Clever little external elevator to 19th floor checkin, courteous staff and nice - if very compact - 18th floor room. So far room service dinner and club lounge breakfast perfectly adequate. Downside is that my entire corridor stinks of cigarettes and cigars, pretty much 24/24. Having mentioned this... More

Just enjoyed another wonderful vacation at The Queen E. Stayed six nights this time in a one bedroom suite. Large suite with 2 full baths, king bed and pull-out sofa bed. Room was at the end of the hall which is one of the advantages of the suites.....VERY quiet. The location of this property is it's best feature. The underground... More

This Fairmont has a couple of good restaurants. Service can be slow but the food is fresh and good. Fois gras creme brûlée and fresh sea bass stood out. Homemade ginger ale was also a hit. Excellent in-room dining. The spa treatments are also good quality and value. Many conferences during the week make it a little busy but the... More

Hotel is getting old and you can tell by the bathrooms in the hotel rooms. Still a great place to stay but not the best Montreal has to offer. Everyone knows the Queen E as the greatest hotel, or used to be when John Lennon and Yoko Ono were there but since then it's starting to show it's age. Benefits... More

Dear Trident4mg - Thank you for your visit. We're glad to learn how the great convenient location of the hotel made this stay enjoyable.

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth and from the moment we arrived we were not disappointed. We upgraded to the gold room (on the 18&19th floors) with a private elevator. The room was large with a desk and two comfortable chairs. The bed was comfortable and the linens as expected. The little note next to our... More

La Reine Elisabet is a great hotel. The service is friendly and rapid. The appointment of the room is excellent and the rooms have enough space. I was there for 6 days and found the amenities to be very convenient and I enjoyed the centrality of the hotel. I went for runs up Mount Royal and down along the river.... More

An amazing stay in an amazing place, much of it due to the Fairmont and their fantastic recommendations, and concierge service. We were there for a conference that the Fairmont hosted; the food was consistently great as was the staff. The drinks in the lounge were unique and incredibly tasty (although somewhat expensive at $15/drink). The hotel is very clean,... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
