Montreal's Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel reopens
MONTREAL - Following several years of planning and 12 months of work, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel has officially reopened and welcomed its first guests.
The hotel's owner, Ivanhoe Cambridge, had closed the property for a year while a major transformation was completed. The project objectives have been achieved with the collaboration, expertise and hard work of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and principally two Montreal firms: Pomerleau, the general contractor, who worked closely with Sid Lee Architecture on the project.
Guests can now enjoy a totally renewed hotel experience, thanks to the efforts of the team and the commitment of the more than 600 employees of Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth. Some 500 rooms are now accessible, along with all of the common areas, the Fairmont Gold lounge, the new CoLab 3 business campus on the third floor, with its vast outdoor terrace overlooking Rene-Levesque Boulevard, Suite 1742 (site of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's iconic Bed-In for Peace), as well as the spa.
The other new "Queen E" experiences being introduced today include the Agora, Roselys restaurant, Krema cafe, and Nacarat bar. Many more new features will be unveiled in the weeks to come, and all will enhance the unique experience of this pre-eminent hotel destination, while celebrating made-in-Montreal creativity and talent.
