Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth

Montreal, Canada

Virgin rating

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.

We had a fun and comfortable stay to celebrate a birthday and Mother's Day. The room was a touch small but work well for what we needed. It was clean, lovely design, nice people work there. And you should not force people to write 200min characters in your reviews. It's annoying.

Stayed at the Fairmont for the WPO Conference and had a great stay! Lovely hotel, comfortable accommodations, kind staff. Also enjoyed that it was located in a walkable area. Could walk to restaurants, shops, and attractions easily when I had a break to go outside.

I booked my stay with Fairmont month in advance. Specifically requested a room away from the elevators. We were placed literally 10 steps away from the elevators. Non stop noise of other hotel guests coming and going. First night room next to us was extremely loud, speaking loud laughing wee hours of the morning. I went down to front desk in the morning to advise them of the noise and that I would like a different room and also dont want to be near elevators. Was told there is nothing but lower level rooms and that I should have come downstairs when the noise happened to complain. Actually no i dont need to, its 1am and I am not going downstairs jet-lagged in my pajamas. . The front desk agent expressed zero empathy or concern. Brushed it off. . Sunday evening there was non stop hummin/buzzing noise either from the room next to us or outside. Another night of restless sleep. This time I called front desk, no one answered. The only email I had was reservations so I sent them an email. They advised they forwarded my email to the front desk. All day Monday didnt hear from the hotel. Sent a followup email and was advised manager would be in touch he didnt email us once. He decided to call us Tuesday (da of our check out) but we stepped out for last minute things. Once we got back to the hotel I went to front desk to speak with Andrew but he wasnt there and I didnt have time to wait around for him we had to pack and check out. I advised I will send an email. Also sent Andrew photo evidence of the dirty, unsanitary room upon check in. He didnt do anything about our stay. He knew we were leaving that day and just apologized for the experience. Zero customer service skills, concern or worry about how guests came here for vacation but instead dealt with being put in a room they didnt request and had non stop noise for most of their stay. Sent him a follow up email but his out of office states he is away for 1 month. Read less
