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.

Beds were super comfy. Be sure to find out how to get through the underground shopping from the hotel. Pretty cool! If you walk on Ste-Catherine (which is only one block away) be sure to check out Moxies or Les 3 Brasseur Restaurants but for Breakfast, you will want to eat at the hotel. The breakfast buffet is well worth it!

Nice room. Staff ok. Availability of drinks and food very limited. Snack shop with extremely limited choice of refreshments and snacks. Impossible to buy simple toiletry items. Ever heard of ice and vending machines? Not at this place.

They are so friendly and helpful. We dined at the Roselyn's at least once for each meal and had drinks in Nacarat. Each time the service was excellent. The variety of cocktails at Nacarat is vast. The menu at Roselyn's was a bit limited, but the chef and waitstaff did everything they could to make the meal work. Read less

The Queen Elizabeth is a nice property and a great location but I feel you pay a premium for the name. Rooms are nice and quiet and lots of English speaking channels on the TV. Service is okay but do not eat at the restaurant. Did the breakfast buffet and the bill was close to $30 CND and that is high and the food was nothing to write home… Read more
