After staying at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth and using its convenient Metro access for several days, we took the elevator down to the Via Rail station, checked our bags and enjoyed a hassle-free 2.5 hours to Quebec City (and subsequent return). Ticketing, baggage check, snacks on board and entire process could not have been more pleasant. The station was clean, comfortable and provided multiple low-end eating amenities. High end eating was only an elevator ride away. My recommendation would be to watch the fares carefully as I noticed a dramatic change in fare during the week immediately prior to our departure that saved our family of four significant expense and made the train worthwhile versus car rental. Internet access on boardand at the station was a nice plus.
