Hotels in Quebec
Hotels in Quebec are known for their quality service, and you can certainly find one that suits your needs. Whether you are looking for quaint bed & breakfasts, contemporary boutique hotels or grand Victorian hotels, Quebec has them all.
Montreal and Quebec City have some of the best hotels in Quebec, and those are perfect destinations for visitors looking for pampered luxury. In Quebec City, the stately 18th-century façade of the Auberge Saint-Antoine doesn't give away what’s behind it: a modern boutique hotel, complete with sharply dressed concierges and an up-tempo lobby soundtrack. This mix of new design and old world charm is typical of hotels in the French-Canadian cities. The Loews Le Concorde Hotel is another modern luxury hotel--the antithesis to the colonial buildings and fortifications of Vieux-Québec. The Loews’ enviable location at the city’s highest point gives guests expansive views of the St. Lawrence River, the Gaspé Peninsula, and Île D’Orleans.
Two classic old hotels in Quebec that cannot be missed, even if just for an afternoon tea, are the two castles of Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, set above the St. Lawrence River within the walls of Old Quebec, and the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu, snuggled between the mountains and the sea. The aristocrat-worthy furnishings and majestic architecture will make every guest feel like royalty.
Are you looking for a more contemporary one-of-a-kind experience? Quebec hotels have something original to offer more adventurous travelers. Try the Ice Hotel in Quebec City, which is open from January to March with a new design every year. Even if you don’t stay overnight check out the bar where you can have a drink while admiring the amazing ice sculptures of the hotel, while wrapped in a parka.
Recently renovated 1893 landmark hotel set above the St. Lawrence River within the walls of Old Quebec. Aristocrat-worthy furnishings, such as carved headboards and antique tapestries, make up for the minuscule size of some rooms.
Several of the tastefully decorated modern rooms include whirlpool tubs, perfect after a long day of outdoor activity.
After a day of shopping in the frosty air, check into this hotel with a heated outdoor pool.
Built in 1723 and originally used as a fur warehouse, the stone building in Old Montreal is now the elegant Auberge Les Passants du Sans Soucy. The lobby does double duty as an art gallery exhibiting work by Québécois artists, and a fireplace warms the communal sitting room.
The family-friendly hotel has a convenient downtown location, and kids will enjoy the indoor pool and activities center stocked with toys and games.
The lakeside village of north hatley—87 miles east of Montreal and 20 miles north of the U.S.
Hôtel Le Germain is a testament to its French-Canadian province with original art, locally made furniture, and bedding by Quebec fashion designer Marie Saint Pierre. The rooms, renovated in 2009, have large windows providing natural light and city views.
The too-cool faux-hawked staffers at this über-chic boutique hotel might be off-putting if the rooms weren’t so stylish and comfortable. Playful fabrics—suede headboards, cowhide chairs, faux-fur throws—brighten the dark walnut floors and cool, white walls.
Housed in two buildings, including an old leather factory from the 19th century, the 24-room hotel appeals to young entrepreneurs with its tech-savvy touches like free Wi-Fi and plasma TV’s outfitted with Wii Fit stations.
Located at the intersection of Rue Sherbrooke and Boulevard Saint-Laurent—equidistant from downtown and the Plateau—this property should have been a slam-dunk when it opened in 2004 as the design-driven Hotel Godin.
Stepping into the St-James feels like stepping back into a genteel, Gilded Age manse.
The hotel consists of a 22-story tower and the former headquarters of the city’s Gazette newspaper.
