A conference took me to Montreal on business mid-September.
We knew that they were in the middle of a strike but decided to stay there because we were so excited to be staying at a Fairmont property. We managed just fine during the strike (even with no real housekeeping for six days). Towels and washcloths were stacked on tables on each floor. They did come in to make the bed a couple of days. No sheets were changed. Regardless of the strike, I would have been disappointed in this property. It is very dated and the rooms are in need of a major renovation. Dark, drab and very, very small rooms for such a high room price. It did not compare to the Fairmont properties that I have stayed at in the U.S. The location is indeed good. The staff was doing everything they could to make up for the strike. Next visit I would definitely stay somewhere else as I heard many comments from others at this conference that they were thrilled with their hotels....and there are many great choices in Montreal.
