While this Fairmont does not have the beautiful chateau look of the ones in Ottawa or Quebec City, it is very nice in the inside. The lobby is spacious and my room was very comfortable. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet, but did not try the restaurant for other meals. While my wifi was complementary, I do not know if the... More

I'm a big fan of Fairmont properties but this particular hotel offers not much more than a convenient location. The hotel is tired and the staff almost always does not meet the usual Fairmont standards of excellence.

The level of service received at this fine hotel is simply hard to beat. Highly recommended. This was my second stay at this hotel and I will always return there when visiting Montreal. It is extremely conveniently located and if you are arriving using VIA Rail it is right above the central station. The hotel is also fairly historic having... More

We had a fantastic stay in this historic yet up to date hotel. Classic but with all the modern conveniences, pool, gym etc. The location is ideal just above the train station and connected to a shopping mall. It's also walking distance to Old Montreal and although we taxied up to Mount Royal we had a leisurely walk back down.... More

It becomes more clear to me every time I stay at a Fairmont Property. First off, we normally book on the Gold Floor; as a matter of fact I'm writing this from the Gold Lounge on 19.

This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Montreal which links to the 30 odd KM's of underground shopping malls. Very comfortable, excellent understanding staff (even if like me, you don't speak French) and the buffet breakfast is to die for. Thank you for making my stay memorable.

We stayed at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth for one week in April 2015. The room was very nice but needed some minor repairs to the wall paper and finishings. It was disappointing to have the bell desk charge $2 per bag to store our luggage...at a Fairmont. Not really Fairmont style. However, the city is amazing, this location is absolutely... More

This classic hotel has just been renovated so it has history AND comfort. The staff were really interested in making sure that I had a great time. This location is also right next to the cathedral, the train station and the underground mall. There are great restaurants nearby. I will stay here when I come back to Montreal.

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.
