Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth and C2 join forces to create a new business space on the hotel’s top floor
Business in Montréal is looking up. Way up, to the 21st floor of the city’s storied and historic Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth. The Queen Elizabeth and C2 Montréal have just announced that they are teaming up to create a wholly new and unique space on the top floor of the prestigious hotel.
To be called L’Espace C2, it will occupy one wing of the uppermost floor and include a rooftop terrace. Developed in partnership with Sid Lee Architecture, it will be able to accommodate up to 220 guests in a variety of configurations for meetings and other events. L’Espace C2 is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017, following the conclusion of extensive renovations to the hotel and its reopening this summer.
“Following two years of reflection and work, we are thrilled to see the emergence of this new Montréal destination that will offer a direct connection to the city’s commercial, cultural and community activities,” says Jean Pelland, architect and Senior Partner, Sid Lee Architecture.

C2 has a proven track record when it comes to the creation of inspiring, collaborative environments, while Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth, part of Montréal’s cityscape for nearly 60 years, is embarking on a new phase in its history.
“We are very proud to be able to offer, as of this fall, a modern and functional gathering place in the heart of Montreal,” says C2 President Richard St-Pierre. “Ideal for business meetings, conferences and executive retreats, this space is designed to adapt to client needs, and features technologically leading-edge equipment that can transform the locale and the ambience.”

For his part, David Connor, General Manager, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth and Regional Vice-President, Eastern Canada, for Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, believes that “this first permanent space by C2 is unique and will change the way meetings are conducted… 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.”
