    The best place for a sophisticated reception!

    We are grateful to have had the chance to live the greatest day of our lives at the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth. From the beginning of the planning to the wedding day, everything was perfect. The Event services manager was professional, organized, full of good ideas and thoughtful and made the whole organization go smoothly. Our reception took place in the C2 room on the roof top of the Queen Elizabeth. The modern architecture and the spectacular view of the city is outstanding! The food was exceptional, sophisticated, and delightful.

    One of the differentiator of the Fairmont experience is the Staff. Everyone in the hotel is sweet, caring and always pleased to help you. Each and everyone of them care that you and your guests get a flawless experience. This is the magic of this place. The Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend it because after all, it’s one of the most important days of your life!

    Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth's reply:

    Thank you Marie-Pier,
    A real pleasure to have you and Gabriel at Queen Elizabeth and to be part of this wonderful day!!!
