4.5 out of 5.0

One of worse coffee breaks ever and speechless regarding breakfast during the conference... One good thing, staff always very friendly and rooms are very comfortable. Those facing the front of the hotel, because of the building works (there for the last 6 months as I was told)... Forget them! Noise as from 7 am!

Stayed here for the first time after the refurbishment has been completed after having stayed a few time before. The difference is great and it now is a modern, luxury and comfortable place to stay. I got an upgrade to a larger corner room and the the standard of finish, decor and equipment was at the very good level you would expect from a Fairmont. The bed was very comfortable and you will get a good night sleep. Stepping into the walk in shower in the contemporary bathroom the next morning will wake you up and get you ready for the day. I also had breakfast in the hotel and again the new layout was very good and inviting. The selection at the buffet was good but somehow didn't feel well arrange (or maybe I was just jet-lagged). Staff overall was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again as it is modern and up to date as well as centrally located.

Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth is a nice, classic hotel. My experience was heightened through the daily interactions with staff. All were very help and did there best to help although the did not speak very good English. Duchka, is a standout friendly and I felt like she went the extra mile when attending to my room. So, thank you Duchka for making my 1st experience at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth a pleasant and enjoyable one.

I checked in after 6pm so the parking spot for my rental car in front of the hotel was free. I was not asked about any room preference and I didnt bother to mention anything either during checkin so settled for the 6th floor room. Rooms are standard business hotel type. Extremely convenient location as it's just above the Central Metro station and adjacent to my office. My stay was short and pleasant.

We spent last night at the Fairmont and overall it was a very positive experience. The rooms were great and the service was excellent. They do charge for WiFi - $16 for 24hours - which I thought was unusual. Most places we have stayed at now have free wifi - why charge? This was disappointing. As well as this, while waiting for our transfer from the hotel to the airport, our transfer was running late. But they did call the hotel to let us know, but the hotel did not let us know ... not sure why? Anyway, as a hotel - excellent. The concierge’s recommendation for dinner was excellent. Plus hugely helpful in telling us where to go to get the best experience of Montreal in the short time that we had. Bed was comfortable (air conditioner a bit noisy!) but overall, a very positive experience.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal. It was a lovely short getaway weekend. The premises is new and very modern in comparison to other Fairmonts that we have stayed at. The room was very quiet.

Had an amazing one night stay in the newly renovated Fairmont located in downtown Montreal. From the exterior, the hotel does not seem impressive. Until you step inside! The Fairmont has retained its elegance with a modern flair after being entirely renovated. A huge “Wow”. The lobby and entrance are stunningly designed with great attention to detail. Love the little marché, restaurants,and coffee shops. The reception and service throughout was very friendly and accommodating. Our king room on the tenth floor was clean and tastefully decorated. Could not fault anything with the hotel. Added to this, the hotel is situated within walking distance to shops, restaurants and Old Montreal. One couldn’t ask for a better location and a more comfortable stay. Also, a very reasonable price point. Will definitively return!

With over a 200M spend and counting, this 1958 iconic property has surpassed its expectations. The architectural design is straight out of Architectural Digest. With the greys, deep teals and accents in yellow, purple and orange, the vibrancy and fresh look are brilliant. Local artisan pictures grace the walls. Meeting space of Ping Pong room and Swing Room are sensational one of a kind. Maria from Sales is excellent and a walking encyclopedia of knowledge.

This is my third stay at the Queen Elizabeth it is one of my favourite places to stay in Montreal. It is an upscale, modern hotel with all of the amenities! The bathroom products they provide are lovely(Rose 1) The rooms are modern and cozy at the same time . The bed feels like a cloud !! Most important is the location!! Lose to the Bell Centre and walking distance to great shopping on St. Catherine’s Street. Also lots of great places around to eat!! The Fairmont is also a part of the “tunnel” system in Montreal so if the weather is inclement you can get to the shops without having to go outside !! . They also have a new upscale market/ eatery attaches to the hotel that has so many different choices for dining. I ate there a couple of times - chacuterie and pizza ( some green apple sorbet that was delicious) As I said previously love it here !!

I really wanted to like this newly renovated hotel, but a few issues just could not make it happen. The rooms are comfortable (best hotel bed I have had in a while), although small. The overall style is pretty cool and retro. Nevertheless a few things are just plain off. The main entrance of the hotel through the parking area is downright shabby. A poor first impression of the hotel and unbecoming of a 5 star hotel. The service in the restaurants was poor, and I really did not like the fact that our children were not allowed into the Tapas restaurant. Breakfast was expensive and the lay out of the food stations was awkward. The pool was smaller than the changing area, which is odd, and you cant actually get down to the gym/pool directly but have to walk through the entire lobby of the hotel in your bath robe. Overall, the hotel - especially at these prices - needs to fix a few things to be worthy of its name.
