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.
