MONTREAL — Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth and C2 have announced the development and creation of a unique space on the 21st floor of the prestigious Montreal hotel. Dubbed Espace C2, the space will occupy one wing of the uppermost floor and the building’s rooftop terrace and will be able to accommodate up to 220 guests in a variety of configurations.
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth is positioning itself as a leading business destination in Montreal’s downtown core. This repositioning, developed in partnership with Sid Lee Architecture, will offer Montrealers and an international clientele a new business campus whose focal point will be Espace C2. Set to open in the fall of 2017, the space will offer a novel experience for meetings and events.
Espace C2 is part of Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth’s major transformation as part of owner Ivanhoé Cambridge’s vision for downtown Montreal, and will mark the hotel’s return as a sought-after, high-end business destination.
“This first permanent space by C2 is unique and will change the way meetings are conducted,” says David Connor, general manager, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth and regional vice-president, Eastern Canada, for Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. “With its inspiring and original programming, it will enable us to attract a local and international clientele. The very structure of this space will also transform the urban landscape and allow our guests to enjoy outstanding rooms and a terrace with a breathtaking view over downtown.”
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth is scheduled to reopen this summer.
