Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth
Following its £106 million renovation, this iconic downtown Fairmont hotel reopened in 2017, celebrating its landmark status by blending a stylish aesthetic with a nostalgic nod to the building’s heritage. There hasn't been a corner that's been left unturned with all the rooms and public areas getting a refresh. The Wellness Centre is now a state-of-the-art leisure complex with indoor pool, extensive gym and a sauna and steam room.
The rooms are light, bright and modern with unique statement walls or 21st-Century-meets-60s art work, crisp white sheets and sumptuously comfortable furnishings. The Fairmont Rooms have limited glimpses of the city, while with the Fairmont View Rooms the clue is in the name - they have uninterrupted views of Montréal. For a whole host of added extras opt for one of the Fairmont Gold Rooms. A complimentary continental breakfast and evening canapes are served in the exclusive lounge on the 21st floor and you'll get private check-in and check-out and free coffee, tea and soft drinks throughout the day. If you want a real treat, there's the John Lennon and Yoko Ono Suite where the couple's famous 'bed-in for peace' took place.
There’s a new Art Deco restaurant – Roselys – a signature bar and one of the coolest additions to the hotel, an urban market showcasing artisan produce, all of which has been sourced responsibly. There are food stations open between 11am and 6pm and the market is open throughout the day. You can even get dishes created at the urban market delivered to your room using the GOLO app.
