Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth Review
Built to impress international guests during Expo 67, The Queen E was the iconic setting for John Lennon and Yoko Ono's second "bed-in for peace" protest of 1969, but it's hardly stuck in the past—answering as it does the trend for locavore food with a rooftop garden and beehives for heirloom vegetables and honey. Rooms are spacious, with lush carpeting and richly textured fabrics, but they lack pizzazz. Bathrooms are stocked with biodegradable toiletries by Le Labo, while the walls display work by local artists. The Gold floors (18 and 19) attract celebs like Anne Hathaway and Steve Carell because of their private elevator, separate check-in, concierge services, and the stunning views of a domed church. Health nuts love the Fairmont Fit program, a partnership with Reebox and BMW, who supply gym gear and bikes. The restaurant menus reflect the Fit program's goal, serving sustainable fish and healthy food.
