We love the Fairmont chain. The Queen Elizabeth has a perfect location. Walking distance to so much, with the underground shopping just below and the train station.
Our arrival was very late (2am) with two very young and tired children, all we wanted was to rest, so I thought I could live with the nasty smell in our room. Once mentioned to the front desk, we were moved and were able to enjoy the rest of our mini vacation.
In the past, we have found breakfast at the Fairmont to be rather expensive for eggs and toast so we thought we would pass and explore St. Catherine. There is so much outside your door, I didn't miss it at all.
It was great to have the pool, the kids loved it. The only other thing I would have liked was more time....Just so much to do, see and try in Montreal that we'll just have to go back.
I'm certainly glad we president club members, wifi was included and the water in the lobby was a nice little touch.
