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.

Nothing like going to Montreal by train in mid-January. The station almost empties into the lobby of the Queen Elizabeth hotel and you never have to go outside.

Nothing like going to Montreal by train in mid-January. The station almost empties into the lobby of the Queen Elizabeth hotel and you never have to go outside. The hotel was modernized top to bottom recently and it looks and feels great. The shops, the spa, the restaurants are all first-rate. Plus, the hotel connects to the vast underground network, so you literally can shop, eat, visit museums, rest, etc. without ever having to go outside in sub zero weather. All hail the Queen!

This hotel was THE BEST location for us since we were leaving early the next morning for Quebec City. It is located directly above the central train station and there is an elevator going from the lobby to the train station. This saved us from going outside in inclement weather and transferring luggage back and forth from the back of a taxi. It was an additional bonus when we overslept and had only half an hour to get showered, dressed and packed, checked out and to the station. Additionally, there is a wonderful food hall off the main lobby with stations for anything you could possibly want to eat. There are casual eating bars, tables and a more formal dining room with an extensive menu. We were unaware of this and it was quite helpful. The hotel itself was warm and intimate while being a large property. As many reviews state, the bathrooms are small, but well planned and have everything a luxurious hotel would offer. It was clean, clean, CLEAN which is a big importance to us. When we return, we will book this hotel again as the location is walking distance to shopping on St. Catherine Street and accessible to the underground as well. We loved the city and this property.
