I stayed at the Fairmont during my last visit in 2010. The hotel is about 30 minutes drive from the airport (no traffic) right in the heart of the city, beside the main train station. If you are travelling by train, you can access right from the train station through the underground pass. Attached the hotel is the maze of... More

Had a one night stay here and all was great. Room clean and it was a reasonable size. The bathroom was small, but we expected that in an old hotel. We had an excellent room rate due to special that was running. Easy walk to the Bell Centre. And an excellent Sunday brunch at the hotel. We also took advantage... More

Most Fairmont hotels I have stayed in have been outstanding. The Queen Elizabeth is fine, but lacks character and good management. We arrived in Montreal from a cruise and arrived to a chaotic scene in the lobby. We were 8 people, two to a room, and each check in took 20 minutes to half an hour. In my view, since... More

My wife and I had looked forward to staying at the Queen Elizabeth and while I know it is an older property I was hoping for something a bit more. We used our suite upgrade which gave us two spacious rooms. Frankly the roooms looked old and tired and really in need of an overhaul. The heating/cooling system was noisy... More

I stayed in this hotel for over a week for work and I enjoyed every minute of my stay. After the first night, I asked if I could get a room with the better view as I am staying for more than a week. They ended up upgrading me to a corner room and the view was absolutely amazing. The... More

This is not one of those grande dame Fairmonts with turrets and giant chandeliers; it's a modern bit of brutalist architecture on Blvd. Rene Levesque. Taxis drop guests, for some reason I don't understand, at the side entrance where you may or may not find a doorman who may or may not help you up the stairs and through the... More

This hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Montreal. The train station is underneath the hotel, where there's an underground pathway with shops and restaurant. On the ground level, you have great shopping and restaurants around you. The hotel is fairly outdated, but its clean and spacious and not mention the free WI-FI service is super fast :) The... More

I booked the room through the fairmont president's club number and got a great corporate rate because of my employer. The room was ready when we arrived at the hotel, about noon.

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.
