Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth

900 boul. René-Lévesque Ouest, Montréal, Québec, H3B 4A5, Canada

Built to impress international guests during Expo ’67, this was also the iconic setting for John and Yoko's second "bed-in for peace" of 1969, but it's hardly stuck in the past and will certainly please eco-conscious guests. A rooftop garden and beehives provide heirloom vegetables and honey; bathrooms have eco-friendly toiletries; and there's a docking station for an electric car. Rooms are spacious, with lush carpeting and richly textured fabrics, but they lack pizzazz. The Gold floors (18 and 19), with a private elevator, separate check-in, concierge services, and stunning views of a domed church, attract celebs like Anne Hathaway and Steve Carell. Health nuts love the Fairmont Fit program, a free summer running club, including a partnership with Adidas, who supply shoes and gym gear.
