We were in Montreal and Fairmont Montreal is our hotel of choice when we visit - we particularly stay there if we can to enjoy their breakfast. On the negative side, I parked my car using their valet service - my radio station was changed - I did not appreciate this - mention this to valet service if this is... More

It wasn't bad, but I think for the same price next time I would book a smaller boutique hotel that includes wifi and breakfast in the price. It was a comfortable room though, with a great view. A pretty good value. The Keg is right across the street, and access to the underground mall and Eaton Centre, the Metro, train... More

Rooms are adequate but outdated unless you stay in an updated room. Parking behind the hotel is reasonable with in and out privileges since there is no gate. Highly recommend the restaurants and facilities.

The Fairmont was very well located. The staff was consistently pleasant and helpful. Despite the size of the hotel there was always an intimate feeling when in the hotel. Good variety of shops and dining options.

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.
