Quebec City, Canada

The hotel

A Quebec landmark for over 100 years, this picture-perfect fairytale hotel has welcomed kings, queens and movie stars through its doors and is still today one of the city’s grandest destinations. Almost a world in itself, there are plenty of on-site amenities to keep you busy as well as several restaurants and bars. A first-class health club features a 15 m-long indoor swimming pool, a children’s wading pool and a whirlpool. There’s also a fully-equipped gym and massage therapy salon with all manner of treatments to leave you feeling suitably indulged. When it comes to dining, all tastes are catered for at Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac. Le Champlain is a stately restaurant with beautiful river views. French and Continental gastronomic delights are served in an intimate atmosphere of old-world charm under the watchful eye of Chef Stéphane Modat. You can also enjoy tea and fine pastries here whilst watching the street entertainers on the Dufferin boardwalk. For pre-dinner drinks, Le Sam Bistro serves delicious sharing plates, afternoon tea and at happy hour, martinis, including the Winston Churchill, the FD Roosevelt and the Maurice Duplessis – named after three of the Chateau’s most illustrious guests! For those of you who love local cheeses and great wine, spend some time at the 1608, Wine and Cheese Bar, a perfect way to round off your evening.

We were not guests at the Chateau. We simply visited to enjoy the beautiful building up close. It is WOW. There are many details to take in, both inside and outside. Worth 30 minutes of your time for sure!

We booked a king size room, but to not let us wait for the official check-in time, we were assigned in a recently refurnished room, which was fresh and pleasant. There were no light curtains you could close; or you had to close the heavier curtains, or keep everything open. The breakfast was ok, but basic food items like plain muesli, were not… Read more
We booked a king size room, but to not let us wait for the official check-in time, we were assigned in a recently refurnished room, which was fresh and pleasant. There were no light curtains you could close; or you had to close the heavier curtains, or keep everything open. The breakfast was ok, but basic food items like plain muesli, were not available (only the sugary type with chunks of "chocolate"). Wifi is only available against payment. And is of a terrible quality. The bar is fun and the mixologists really know what they are doing. Overall I would say that the beauty of the building does not live up to the service provided, as an hotel it is not all that special. Read less

We got a larger room to accommodate everyone and enjoyed a nice view of the surrounding buildings. Everything about the hotel was great. You could really feel the historic charm of the hotel. Our daughter was thrilled with the treasure hunt and even faked being sick so she could continue looking for clues. The breakfast was pricey but amazing. The location is great for walking around the old part of Quebec City and there are a number of shops and restaurants in an easy walking distance. The hotel is on top of a hill so keep that in mind if you decide to walk from the trains like we did. Read less

We booked a gold room stay for two days to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. While not cheap, it was a wonderful experience and I'd highly recommend it for a special occasion. The hotel is wonderfully romantic and the gold room stay included a city view, sumptuous breakfast buffet and and first rate hors d'oeurves that could well serve as dinner. We ate lunch at Sams Bistro onsite on a rainy Wednesday and highly recommend the five cheese platter to share. Staff were all great! Read less
