Since opening in 1958, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth has welcomed many members of the British royal family, as well as a long list of celebrities. However, some recent guests feel that this Fairmont property falls short of its reputation, citing dated guest rooms and high nightly rates as reasons to stay elsewhere. On the other hand, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth earns a nod of approval for its central location (above Montreal's central train station), and those who enjoyed their stay recommend reserving a room on a higher floor for views of the Notre-Dame Basilica. No matter which room you pick, you'll have access to high-speed Internet (for a fee), cable television and a minibar. You're also invited to take advantage of the property's fitness center, indoor pool and Gibson Salon Spa. When hunger strikes, you can choose to splurge on Mediterranean cuisine at Le Montréalais Bistrot-Bar Restaurant. As a member of the AccorHotels family, this hotel participates in the Le Club AccorHotels loyalty program. Note: The hotel will be closed for 12 months starting mid-June 2016 for renovations. The hotel is expected to reopen in June 2017.
