Auberge Saint-Antoine

Old Quebec’s historical masterpiece

Whether you’re sipping on a deconstructed cocktail at Artefact or refining your senses at Chez Muffy bistro, Auberge Saint-Antoine is not afraid to show its deep roots in Quebec’s history.

Owned and operated by the Price family, Auberge Saint-Antoine is a Relais & Châteaux establishment renowned for its top-notch service and chic décor. Set in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage site with winding cobblestone streets, the charm and historical character of the hotel are highlighted with impeccable modern style and European flair thanks to owner and matriarch Martha “Muffy” Price and her daughter Lucy.

Catering to the local population year-round, Chez Muffy offers a more relaxed approach to food. The restaurant sources ingredients from the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel’s farm on île d’Orléans to craft seasonal Quebec cuisine.

Auberge Saint-Antoine makes for a cozy, luxurious getaway, especially for couples.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Chez Muffy is set up inside a preserved 19th-century warehouse where stone walls and an exposed wood ceiling blend in with chic, colorful furniture.
  • Romance is at the core of the Auberge Saint-Antoine experience, especially at the Artefact bar area, where two alcoves with a fireplace offer an intimate environment ideal for private conversations.
  • A master in the art of customer service, the personalized bilingual concierge has extensive knowledge of all historical and local-friendly neighborhoods in Quebec City.
  • Built on one of the city’s richest archaeological sites, the boutique hotel consists of three historical buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries as well as a wharf and battery structure from the end of the 17th century.
  • Every room here has its own charm, whether in the gorgeously designed contemporary accommodations in the main wing or in Maison Hunt, a smaller wing showcasing period designs — allowing you to step back in time to New France or to the British Merchant era. 

Things to Know

  • Street parking can be difficult in the area because of the narrow cobblestone roads that are often made pedestrian only during the high season. Valet parking comes highly recommended — vehicles are kept in an underground heated deck with charging stations to power electric cars.
  • Film buffs will want to check out Cinema Saint-Antoine, a private screening room equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system. Families staying in one of the historically themed guest rooms can use the screening room for free.
  • Pets are welcome in preselected rooms.
  • Live music at Artefact every Thursday and Saturday calls for a martini. 

The Rooms
  • Throughout the 95 rooms and suites, you’ll find museum-worthy artifacts dating as far back as the 1600s from what used to be l’îlot Hunt, the land on which the luxury hotel now stands.
  • The historical suites of the Hunt House highlight the hotel’s purpose: creativity, warmth and history. While the wood paneling dates back to 1760, trendy lifestyle accessories give an updated sense of style and grace to the décor.
  • Most rooms feature no-fog mirrors and heated wood floors made from Quebec wood, the essence of the Price family’s history. All rooms have a Bose sound system, a Nespresso coffee machine, Frette bed linens, bathrobes and slippers.

Nearby Attractions

  • Steps away from the Quebec City hotel are modern art galleries, bistros, designer boutiques and museums like the Auberge’s neighbor Musée de la civilisation, which is centered around the Québécois culture.
  • The newly revitalized waterfront Place des Canotiers in Old Quebec is a great place for the family to cool down in the water installations or bike along the majestic St. Lawrence River.
  • In 2017 along Rue Dalhousie, Auberge Saint-Antoine opened Le Canot à Glace, an ice cream and pastry shop operated by Chez Muffy pastry chef Clément Duteil. You’ll find among many delectable pastries and frozen delicacies like gelati, sundaes, affogato as well as traditional French macarons.
