How to Get There
Every single person on staff made us feel welcome and special. The pool is FANTASTIC and clean (love the dry sauna) and every attention to detail was great. Buffet breakfast is well stocked and the restaurant staff was so warm and friendly every morning. We will definitely stay here again.
This was roughly my 10th stay at the Queen E but my second since the renovation, which has definitely improved the look of the hotel and the bed was super comfortable
Breakfast buffet was good though it seemed difficult to get coffee or orange juice from wait staff
My girlfriend and I were staying at The Fairmont Queen Elizabeth and we were so delighted to see our favorite Montreal hotel looking fabulous once again. Our room had been freshly renovated as well as the lobby, restaurants and bars. After our Christmas party we decided to go have a drink. We were amazed by the beautiful crowd that was present as well as the amazing cocktails that they served us. The night was going so well, we had met some nice people and the vibe was terrific. But this all came to an abrupt end when all of a sudden, these policemen in full swat attire come in out of nowhere and started muscling their way through the crowd asking people for identification and flashing their flashlights in our faces. Hello Russia, 1980’s, how is this possible in a city that was once upon a time was the coolest city across North America for their bar scene. Who is responsible for letting these inflated steroid using robots walk through a crowd as if a murder had just been committed? How does the Fairmont put up with this? In the morning when we discussed this with the hotel reception, we were told that we were not the only ones to complain and that this was not the first time that this had happened. They said that numerous complaints had been made by other guests in the past. Excuse me but aren’t we entitled to feel secure in a 5 star hotel bar and not feel threatened by an impromptu visit from the local tactical team for no reason? We came to relax and have fun but we left feeling that we had unjustifiably been the victims of discrimination which left us very frustrated and angry.
We decided to go downstairs for a cocktail at the bar, my wife started a conversation with a couple girls and next thing you know we are being asked for identification. We told the officers that we were guests of the hotel and he was quick at telling us that we were better off in our room since the hotel bar was associated to the Montreal Mafia. We quickly paid our tab and went back to our room. After putting some thought to this, we're not quite sure if there was any sign of mobsters, the only ones that seem to act like mobsters were these out of control Montreal Cops pushing through the crowd disturbing everyone. Shame on you Montreal for permitting such behaviour.
You definitely want to stay here. Hotel is the best in downtown Montreal. Service is excellent, the facilities are great. Excellent renovation. Easy walking distance to everything. Great fitness centre and great fitness centre staff - very helpful. The front desk people are excellent as well.
