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.

NO rights to wear bandana masks. If you fail to obey them, the front desk threatens to call security to kick you out. I left the hotel with unpleasant feelings. Stay away from this covid hotel during pandemic. It was waste of time and money.

Overall a nice stay. The front desk staff was exceptional. The room was fantastic ! The room service not very good. Ordered a steak that was overcooked. Sent it back and the next one was fine 30 minutes later. They then charged me for the second steak! Yes really! It was resolved at checkout, but why make me have to catch the charge and complain.… Read more

Stayed twice with family and kids. The renovations brightened and truly refreshed the common areas and the rooms. Rooms(suite and junior suite) were big and well appointed. Room service food could have been better (order messed up), but it was not a huge concern.
