I stayed at The Queen Elizabeth for a customer meeting in Montreal this week. The location is great as it's close to downtown, old Montréal, etc. Also, if you take elevator 3 and 6 and go down to the 2nd floor, you have lot’s of shops and cafes where you can get coffee and pastry and they are quite nice and convenient especially in cold days.
The room is smaller than what you will get in most hotels but again, I don't need a lot of space. The only thing I didn't like is how far my room was from the elevator. On the upside, I got my exercise by just getting to the elevator every morning, but on the down side, that was an additional walk in high heels. I didn’t insist but I asked if I could move my room, which was politely declined.
What I found interesting is that every day the housekeeping staff will leave you new bottle of shampoo, shower gel etc but they will remove the previous ones even if you have only used 1/3 of the bottle. Not sure if they just did that in my room or if that is the policy.
Overall it is a great place and one of my favorite places to stay.
