We have stayed countless times at the Fairmont Queen E but this was our first time experiencing the Gold Floor at this property. It was absolutely wonderful. The room was beautiful. It was the Large King with a very nice seating area and large bathroom and that great view of downtown Montreal and the mountain.||The lounge was superb with great options through out the day and the especially good breakfast and evening canapés offerings. Great service in a beautiful setting. Very relaxing way to spend some time away from the hustle bustle of the city.||Everything else about the hotel was great as usual. The cleanliness, service and fabulous location are amazing.||The down side, yup it's very pricey but certainly a nice treat. Can't say enough good things about the Queen E!

Booked a room here through an agent and got a pretty sweet deal including food credit and daily breakfast, which were good value! Rooms are comfortable although you do have to request for certain amenities since they don’t auto provide everything. Location is great, especially if you’re looking to tour the city! I did find it weird that I had to pay for luggage storage given the premium cost of the rooms, as well as tax for my complimentary breakfast - they come across as hidden fees which are never good practice.
