As the birthplace of French Canada, Quebec City attracts tons of tourists all year long. Glowing with European flair, the entire city is picturesque, which can only mean charming places to stay. Here are a couple of our favorite hotels in Quebec City:
1. Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. Reigning over this historic walled city from its perch along the roaring St. Lawrence River is the majestic Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. Built as a classic, sprawling railway hotel at the end of the 19th century, the hotel features guestrooms decorated in a classic European style. The cavernous, wood-clad lobby is presided over by the hotel’s resident canine, though the lobby is also serviced by a friendly human staff.
2. Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu. Located east of Quebec City in the scenic Charlevoix countryside, this majestic castle-like hotel welcomes visitors with historic charm and world-class sophistication. Guestrooms and suites have a classic country appeal, but they’re stocked with modern amenities like plush bed linens and marble bathrooms. Though you are outside the city, the enchanting architecture and picturesque surroundings make it worth the extra trip.
3. Hôtel Le Germain-Dominion. Old Quebec is considered the cradle of French culture in North America, and the centrally located Hôtel Le Germain-Dominion is a wonderful base from which to explore it. This small, sleek hotel takes full advantage of the early 20th-century building’s historic architectural features while providing updated, contemporary guest rooms with down-duvet topped beds.
