What a fabulous hotel they were very accommodating. The service was excellent and the location ideal. It was an easy walk to old Montreal and close to the station. I would certainly stay again........

Last time we were in Montreal we stayed at the St. James hotel in Montreal but this time, because we are Fairmont members we decided to stay at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth. As usual the customer service at the Fairmont is impeccable. If there is something you need this Hotel will get it for you. They must have great training... More

The Queen Elizabeth was the last of the great railway hotels built in Canada and, although its exterior pales in comparison with its siblings across the country, it maintains an elegant, comfortable interior. It sits atop Montreal's main train station, as well as within shouting distance of a Metro stop. So one can easily get to any part of the... More

Might as well be a motel. Stay anywhere else, lots of cheap apartments for rent that are 4times the size of the tiny rooms the Queen E has. Only nice thing was the front desk staff, but the management is horrible! It seems as if they want to be anywhere but at work.

Besides a very knowledgeable concierge and comfortable beds, this hotel was a major disappointment, as I was expecting a "luxury" hotel, but I guess the Fairmont brand does not deliver. I knew that the hotel was on top of the central station, but it was like being in the Grand Central itself with people moving about and competing for the... More

If you are taking the train the convenience of the Queen Elizabeth can't be beat. Even if you aren't the location is perfect for downtown and access to old Montreal and everywhere else! The staff is amazing! Food is great. Boutique a lovely diversion. Plus the little touches from the chefs little surprises for Fairmont members to extra touches by... More

We had a comfortable stay, I didn't think that the building lived up to the Fairmont brand, it lacked the charm and elegance of the other Fairmont hotels I have stayed in. The rooms were small but the bed was super comfortable, and the house keeping staff were delightful. The hotel has a wonderful gym and pool area. Fairmont hotels... More

The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was as we expected; small and nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable and provided with a nice duvet. One staffer however must have missed all of his customer service training seminars. Unfortunately as luck would have it we had to endure his less than stellar service more than once. It is... More
