Auberge Saint-Antoine

A stylish walk through Quebec City history
VERIFIED LUXURY
There’s something undeniably festive about the ambiance at Auberge Saint-Antoine. From the moment you step through the heavy red drapes into the sunken bar area, with its hearty fireplaces tucked into cozy alcoves and curious displays of artifacts such as coins, crockery and cannonballs set into the walls, you cannot help but feel good. Perhaps it’s the attention given to local history or the sense that the often eclectic furnishings have been selected with impeccable taste.

Every room here has its own charm, whether in the gorgeously designed contemporary rooms located 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. It would be easy to overindulge on the high-end comfort food offered at Chez Muffy, the hotel’s restaurant serving Quebec cuisine. But, you can always nip down to LeGym afterwards.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Auberge Saint-Antoine is located at the heart of the Old Port, one of Quebec’s richest historical sites. Various archaeological digs have been held in and around the premises, which served as a wharf, a cannon battery and a commercial warehouse at various points during the French and British colonial eras.
  • Built on one of Québec City’s richest archaeological sites, the 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.
  • Auberge Saint-Antoine's Chez Muffy has built a citywide reputation for gourmet dining. Located in a 19th-century riverside warehouse amid stone walls and sturdy wooden beams, it has a relaxed, airy feel and emphasis is placed on seasonal products, many freshly sourced from Chez Muffy's farm on Île d'Orléans.
  • Café-Bar Artefact, by the main entrance, offers a more casual dining experience on leather easy chairs or by a roaring fire in one of the alcoves. While you’re enjoying your oysters or beef Carpaccio, you might want to try one of the specialty cocktails.
Things to Know
  • If you’re traveling by car, the best way to get to the Quebec hotel is by the scenic Boulevard Champlain, which hugs the Saint Lawrence River. And upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a team of dedicated valets who will park your car in the heated indoor parking lot.
  • Reservations are recommended at Chez Muffy, especially for Friday and Saturday nights and weekend brunch, which includes sophisticated fare such as braised duck and lobster bisque. It’s also worth making a reservation for dining during the busy Christmas/New Year period.
  • The Café-Bar Artefact features live jazz performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8 to 11 p.m.
The Rooms
  • No-fog mirrors and flat-screen TVs, not to mention hotel-wide Wi-Fi, are all part of the aesthetically pleasing and luxurious accommodations in either the main wing or Maison Hunt.
  • In the main wing, each room has been carefully thought out, featuring unique stylings handpicked by the owner — whether it’s a black-and-white photo by a local artist in the bathroom or a bijou hand-embroidered cushion on the bed, the beauty is always in the fine details.
  • The spacious German Room has an audacious feel, with its stone walls, silver silk curtains and faux-fur throws draped over the queen-sized bed, not to mention a spacious desk inset with a Rhine Valley artifact from an archaeological dig conducted onsite. This room also offers a spectacular vista of the river.
  • The small Maison Hunt has six historical suites, all inspired by a specific period. The Gustav Room, for example, is designed with 18th-century Sweden in mind, in soft yellows and soothing blues, with a pale wood floor, a porcelain fireplace and rustic wall hangings.
  • All rooms have large desks, luxury linen, goose down duvets and pillows, a Bose sound system, bathrobes, coffee and tea machines, and a well-stocked mini-bar. All bathrooms have no-fog mirrors and most have heated floors.
The Look
  • The design style of Auberge Saint-Antoine lends itself to a cozy and contemporary atmosphere; though the establishment’s clear passion for local history and design make it much, much more than that.
  • You know you’ve stepped into a unique world from the moment you enter through theatrical drapes into the gorgeous bar area, one where you can nurse a single malt while standing next to a glass display of 17th century shoes or a French cannon.
  • Every little detail, from the birch tree in the gym (around which the exercise machines have been arranged) to the paint on the walls, picked for its rough, authentic Old World feel has been chosen with care. All in all, guests can expect a luxurious, relaxing and original experience.
