We stayed here on a weekend visit to Montreal with family. The location is excellent-connected to the Underground City (great if you find yourself in Montreal in winter) and Gare Central. 15-20 minute walk to Old Montreal and just down the street from the main shopping street of Ste Catherine. Good service. Rooms were a little dated and could use... More

My wife and I and another couple spent three nights at the Queen Elizabeth. We booked a standard room. The room was clean and although not too large was very adequate. Bathroom was as expected with no real complaints. . Hotel is close proximity to the VIA Railroad and the subway below the hotel. There are a few places near... More

The Fairmont Queen Elizabeth is like a home away from home. Everything is close at had, St Catherine St form great restaurants and shopping, the underground food and shopping. Montreal has everything you ever want and the Queen Elizabeth is a great location. Very close to fabulous old Montreal.

Rooms, amenities (great gym), location all completely fine but upon our arrival initial experience almost made us change hotels. It was very busy with many international groups checking in, but this is the Fairmont and just not acceptable. Our first Front Desk attendant actually lied right to our face. Here is our story.

Great location. Easy to get to shopping and Old Montreal by walking. Directly over the train station which is filled with great places to eat, almost any ethnic food you can think of.

This review is a 3 out of 5 based on the preferences we like as couple when we stay in hotel. We really LOVE to have a strong air conditioner in our room and unfortunately I don't think that they have changed their system since the original one, and keep in minds that it's a 1958 building.

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.
