We paid a visit to Quebec City and this beautiful hotel last year and absolutely loved our stay. Le Chateau Frontenac is owned by the prestigeous Fairmont chain of hotels and is the heart of Quebec City, Canada. You will see this castle-like building on virtually any picture postcard of Quebec City; it looms above the whole of the Old Town and stands so majestically overlooking the St Lawrence River. Like all other Fairmont hotels this is a luxury hotel and the service is impeccable. We stayed for a long weekend and while the prices are relatively expensive for North America at around $250 - $300 dollars per night, it is well worth it. The hotel has a fantastic restaurant that is highly regarded and the food is top notch with outstanding service. From the hotel you are only steps away from the Funicular that takes you straight down the hillside from the hotel to the small boutique shops and cafes of the Old Town. The views from the hotel are amazing no matter how high up your room is as you can see all along the infamous St Lawrence shipping seaway. In the winter months you can try out a huge ice slide which is a permanent winter feature right on the doorstep of the hotel, and in the summer months you can enjoy the pavement cafes in the most European of Old Cities in North America.
I would highly recommend a stay at the Chateau Fairmont, Quebec City.
