Built over Montreal's central railway station, the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth has come a long way since my first visit many years ago. Renovated, perhaps several times, to transform its public spaces and sleeping rooms from dowdy and dated in the late 70's, to their current first class quality, the Queen Elizabeth is one of the best of the Fairmont brand,...

We stayed here for a night recently because we got a great rate through my husband's company. The hotel is located so centrally, an easy walk to Rue Ste.Catherine for shopping as well as very good restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean, although I continue to be surprised by the size of the rooms - seem much smaller than some... More

We stayed in the Fairmont Gold level rooms and it was great. Concierge was EXCELLENT. I've heard the rest of the hotel is in desperate need of a renovation but the Gold level rooms are great. Nice location.

We stayed here for the Rogers Cup (tennis) and luckily bumped into several of the top players also. We booked the Gold Plan and were graciously escorted to our room on the 18th floor by the front desk receptionist to ensure that the room met my special requirement - which it did. The room was large and bright and the... More

This is an excellent hotel is you are coming to Montréal by train as it's right above the train station. There is also a pretty extensive food court although many places close around 5 and are closed on the weekends. Hotel is close to all major Montréal attractions and on a métro line. Rooms vary quite a bit. The standard... More

It's our second time staying at Queen Elizabeth hotel and we loved it again.

We had an excellent time and comfortable stay at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth. The employees were attentive and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the maid service excellent.

The room was small, but I did not need anything more. The hotel has a charm that stems from being one of the older hotels in the area. My one complaint would be the food, not up to a 4 star rating and over priced. Anyone staying at this hotel should eat out at one of the many fine restaurants... More

We spent a night at the Queen E with our grandchildren - it is a very nice place to stay - somewhat expensive but right in the center of Montreal. We upgraded to a suite which turned out to be very nice. The restuarant serves great breakfasts and dinners - again a bit expensive but very well done (the liver... More

We have stayed in the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel twice in the last few years and have loved it both times. The hotel itself is very beautiful, the in-room breakfast is to die for (although quite expensive), but the location is the best thing of all. You can simply go down the stairs from the main lobby and access the... More
