Fairmont Le Château Frontenac
This 19th-century castle-like structure is the most renowned Quebec City icon—by far. Both a tourist attraction and one of the city’s finest hotels, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac has just been through a major renovation process. Brand new restaurants and menus, carefully updated décor, hundreds of rooms that each feel unique, and breathtaking views over the river and the city all contribute to the incomparable character of the hotel.
Built on the site of an 18th-century maritime warehouse, the award-winning Auberge Saint-Antoine seamlessly marries historic wooden beams, stone walls, and artefacts to its modern atmosphere to make for one of the most elegant yet coziest hotels in the city. Beautifully appointed rooms pamper guests with luxury linens, top-end amenities, and extras such as fireplaces and balconies with views. Service is attentive without feeling invasive. The hotel is also home to one of the city’s very best restaurants, Panache.
Le Bonne Entente
Just off the bridges on the western side of the city, this large hotel offers a variety of rooms with different personalities, from minimalist urban suites to cozy rooms with romantic four-poster beds. Whatever the style favored by visitors, all benefit from the same outstanding services that make it worth its four-diamond rating. A heated outdoor pool, full service spa, top-notch meeting rooms, and free Wi-Fi please a wide range of travellers, from businesspeople to families.
Hôtel Le Germain-Dominion
The city’s most sophisticated hotel occupies Quebec City’s very first skyscraper, a nine-story building built in 1912. The hotel’s dark color palette perfectly harmonizes with the original stone walls, and the chic minimalism that characterizes both the rooms and the gorgeous lobby is sure to please the most discerning urbanites. The small number of rooms (60 total) ensures considerate service. Upper floors feature open views over the Old Port and the St. Lawrence River.
Hôtel Château Laurier
Sitting on an enviable corner of Grande-Allée, Hôtel Château Laurier is bang in the action of both the summer’s and winter’s major festivals. Accommodations range from smaller, classic rooms to a 902-square-foot presidential suite, equipped with a fireplace, a 12-seat dining room, and a panoramic view over the city. The hotel’s wide range of services, the diversity of packages offered, and its proximity to the Old City make it a versatile choice.
