The Queen Elizabeth was built in 1958 atop the central rail station and was specially built to eliminate the vibration from the trains underneath. The Queen is unbelievably well located in the city with everything closeby. I have stayed here on 3 occasions over 2 years and have had remarkably consistent service and quality of rooms. This is a city hotel, so the rooms are somewhat small, but they are wonderfully appointed.
As I am not a discerning upscale type of guy - but I do appreciate a fine hotel - I will always stay here because of the location and the comfort of the hotel. When we arrive the doorman takes the car and has it valet parked, and after a breeze checkin process we are ready to explore the city. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is noiseless, unless the windows are open. We generally eat breakfast and lunch in the train station which has a huge variety of excellent food - especially the french bakery/deli closest to the mall and the hotel entrance. We often book the hotel in advance and with a good discount, often staying for $125-135 per night, a great deal for such a superb location and excellent hotel.
Book early, get the discounts, give it a try - you will be glad you did!
