Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth

Montreal, Canada

The hotel

A local landmark with a legendary story, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth was the setting for John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s famous bed-in for peace in 1969 – and is where Lennon wrote and recorded Give Peace a Chance. Today, it’s still inspiring guests, thanks to a huge revamp in 2017 that’s transformed social spaces like the wellness centre and sleek indoor pool, and its dining venues, including the elegant Rosélys restaurant, sophisticated Nacarat cocktail bar, and cool contemporary coffee hangout, Kréma. And it’s kept its progressive and creative edge at its urban market, Artisans, where local purveyors and gourmet geniuses share their culinary creations.

Not cheap, but for me, worth every dollar spent. This place is luxurious. If you are spending all your time outside, it might be wasted. We used it at the very start of our tour and end of our tour, using a 4 star hotel for the main bulk of our other sightseeing days.

Again beautiful memories of dining & dancing on the top floor of the Queen Elizabeth Hotel which was on Dorchester then the name changed to Blvd. Rene Levesque. This was the place to go. Of course I have not been there recently but I'm sure it is still the spot to see & be seen.
