When traveling to Montréal we often stay at the "Queen E". Lovely hotel in the heart of down town Montréal; easy parking access, walking distance to EVERYTHING and the restaurant is divine. The Sunday brunch was a great discovery. We chose the signature option with a quaint continental breakfast for only those who chose this option. Never disappointed with this... More

The hotel is in a great location; walking distance to bars and reat restaurants. Shopping is close by. 5 minute car ride to the Vieux Montreal - 15 - 20 minute walk. The service is great. The staff is very helpful with directions and assisting in whichever way they can. Being a Fairmont, the breakfast is very good. I recommend... More

We were in town for the F1 race, and found the location of this hotel to be ideal. Easy to get to the metro as well as easy walking to all of the main activities. Had a few issues with getting the room cleaned on a daily basis, which for the most part were resolved promptly. It's also a hotel... More

Was looking forward to staying at this hotel, as it is one of those iconic places. The check in was smooth, but when I went to my non smoking room I was overcome with cigarette smell.

A very old and dated hotel ideally position above the Union station so you can alight from the train and take the elevator directly to the hotel lobby. The hotel has now closed down for multi million dollar renovations over the next 12 months in preparation to open for the anniversary celebrations in Montreal next June 2017.

We visited the Queen Elizabeth hotel, once again, for our wedding anniversary. Having been married during the Christmas holidays, we always escape for at least one or two nights, to celebrate our 35+ years as a couple.

During our tour of Canada this was probably the best hotel we stayed in. A lovely hotel with a beautiful reception area. This is a very luxurious hotel and I am surprised it is closing for a multi-million refurbishment. The hotel room was large and comfortable, breakfast the next day was expensive, however it was very nice, and this probably... More

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.
