Reviews Summary

Powered by AI
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth boasts a prime location that earns high marks from guests for its convenience and access to local attractions. However, some travelers have expressed disappointment with the room sizes, cleanliness, and amenities, feeling they do not justify the luxury price point. While the range of amenities and cleanliness receive praise, with spotless rooms often highlighted, there are mentions of additional costs for certain services. The hotel's service and atmosphere receive mixed feedback, with accolades for attentive staff juxtaposed with critiques of slow service and a lack of ambiance.

Great location (we arrived by train). Close to shopping and restaurants. I was a little surprised that, not only was Wi-Fi not commentary, but that I would be charged between $16 and $27 per night! When I'm paying $300/night for a hotel room, I expect the Wi Fi to be complementary.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed for 6 nights this summer and had a lovely time at the hotel and enjoyed the superb location and convenience to the metro and downtown shopping. Hotel is in prime location - we live in a city without good transportation so always enjoy the metro system in Montreal. We took the 747 express bus from the airport which stops nearly at the hotel. Staff were friendly and very accommodating. Out daughter joined us for the last 2 nights and staff moved us to a room next door with 2 beds. We have stayed here multiple times over the last few years and always enjoy the Le Labo products, nespresso coffee, comfortable beds and views of the cathedral and downtown Montreal. Hours of Marche Artisans and Nacarat seemed to be much more limited than we remembered from past visits, though at least this year they had reopened. I am assuming the limited hours is part of staffing recovery from COVID. The pizzas from March Artisans were delicious - just be sure to go early as currently they close at 5. Nice selection of local craft beers. Looking forward to our next stay!

Our stay at Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal was wonderful. The location is close to many Montreal tourist areas. The staff were friendly, professional and very attentive. I highly recommend the upgrade to the Gold floors. It's well worth it.

We had two rooms and a late check in and it was very easy. The front desk was very helpful to the four of us. They answered all of our questions and made it clear how we could all pay for our portion of the bill. Valet was very efficient and great as we checked in after midnight.

We arrived by Via Rail, had a very friendly and pleasant check-in with Kevin at the VIP desk and was enjoying our first drink in our room within 20mins! I love staying here, it is our second trip and will be back again! I think the websites to book the rooms should have a calendar of what events are being held at the hotel during that time, even though they are private events...just for interest.

Love the Queen Elizabeth. The staff is amazing. We come to Montreal from Ottawa via Train 2 times a year for 3-4 days to attend a couple of Canadiens games. It is just a short walk to the Bell Centre via the tunnels so you don't even have to go outside!

I have stayed at the Queen E for many years and love it. Location is great and amenities are great but what really sets the Queen E apart is their service, absolutely amazing. Andree at check in is top notch and even recognizes me when I come back. I would never stay anywhere else in Montreal....

Literally everything about our short stay was wonderful - and the complete opposite of the previous nights spent in a 4 star hotel in NYC! The room was charming, the view of Montreal was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the Rose 31 soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. This was new to me and I think I'll buy some for use at home!

We spent five days over the Christmas holidays and it was a flawless experience. The hotel is well maintained and it is in a nice location. We did stay in Fairmont Gold rooms. The access to the lounge was great as we were able to meet as a family for breakfast, snacks and a light dinner when we chose to not go out.

Getting up to date on my reviews, we stayed in the John Lennon suite in September on 2018. This experience is truly one of a kind. It began with the bellman escorting us to the suite with his guitar. Singing a John Lennon song for us and walking us through the museum like suite full of memorabilia to replicate the bed in! The hotel is amenities are fabulous too. The location is great for walking most everywhere. The Queen Elizabeth made our stay so memorable.
