This hotel was easy access from VIA rail station below hotel. It was a very short walk to the Bell Centre to watch the Canadian Juniors beat U.S.A Huge mall in underground below hotel would have been great if the stores were open (new years day)

We could not have asked for a better place to stay during our visit to Montreal! The location of the hotel is excellent and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go.

The hotel was nice, modern, lots of elevators so there was never a long wait. The gym had a lot of equipment and the pool looked nice. It's connected to the underground mall which we only discovered on our last of 4 nights, they should mention that at check in. Valet is mandatory and quite expensive at $33/night but you... More

The Fairmont used to be a happebning place, but is now just a regular hotel. The rooms are slightly tired. Time for a face-lift. The Beaver Club Restaurant, which had a grand history in Montreal, and around the world, has been closed for many months. It apparently will not re-open. That is disappointing. Turning that restaurant into private dining space... More

Stayed NYE and was very disappointed. For 250$ the room was very small with an outdated bathroom. The tub was old and grimey. Also they have mandatory valet parking so the next day at check out we had to wait an hour to get our car. The only plus is a great location and friendly staff.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
