We have visited Montreal about six or seven times. We have always stayed at the Queen Elizabeth except for 2 times when we decided to try other hotels. The Queen is located down the street from Rue St. Catherine which is THE location for shopping. The hotel sits above the underground (again great food and shopping) We always eat at... More

The location was excellent, the service was amazing, the staff accomodating and friendly. Having stayed in Montreal before, I can honestly say this was the best hotel yet. Everyone from the concierge to the maids, to the doormen (especially Douglas) were so helpful and went beyond the call of duty to accommodate us. The rooms were large enough for the... More

It was our first visit to Montreal and this hotel did everything perfectly. The staff was as professional and accommodating as they could be (especially Pascal & Jean Pierre). Our room was big and comfortable with a great view. The location was convenient to the Jazz Festival, Metro, shopping and restaurants. We will definitely return to "The Queen".

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend in July. At a rate of $300/night I expected to get a nice room and good service but I was wrong. I had booked directly with the hotel to ensure I get the best service. The check in process was very slow (wait time 20 minutes). Our room was not available until... More

Very nice stay for a convention. The connection to the underground city is absolutely amazing. Bell staff were on the spot to help unload as we arrived in the rain, and front desk and concierge excellent and polite. Room was on the small side, but that's what the beauty of an historic downtown hotel usually means. Nicely appointed. Having two... More

Accolades to the Queen Elizabeth staff. I had a lovely stay here despite some of the negative reviews. Yes, the grand dame of Montreal is showing her age a bit, but my room was updated and very comfortable. The check-in process took mere seconds and the staff were very gracious. I have decided to concentrate a lot of my business... More

We booked a special 3-nights for the price of 2 deal at a bargain rate via a phone call to the hotel.

We began our trip to Canada with a special package rate of $249 CAD a night including breakfast. The room was not large, but very comfortable with a nice view of the Cathedral next door and Montreal. Bathroom was a bit tiny, the door was almost on top of the toilet, but the shower was very nice with a large... More

I stayed at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth on two seperate occasions during May, 2009. I arrived by cruise ship, and the location of the hotel was all I could have wanted..a $12 CAD cab ride from cruise terminal ( tip included ). The Central train station is located two stories below the hotel. There are many sandwich shops, a Tim... More
