Le Chateau Frontenac is as wonderful as the pictures. Service was very friendly. The hotel is beautiful. Central to everything. Food, shopping street performers. It felt like we were in Europe. I came on business and stayed for a few extra days. I ran the half marathon on Sunday. You can see the hotel from almost anywhere in the city.... More

This was our first visit to Quebec City and we had to stay here. The hotel is close to everything in the old city (upper and lower), and is a commanding presence. There is still restoration work happening in hidden away areas (like the inner courtyard that our room faced). There are historic artifacts and presentations on the lowest level... More

This is a very nice property and the improvements are very good, generally. The Champlain is a very nice restaurant, good food, well prepared, well presented but overpriced. The staff of the hotel is generally friendly with a few exceptions that make the stay somewhat unacceptable. Parking is completely off base at $32.00/ day for rooms that are in excess... More

What can you say about a hotel that is the centerpiece of a historic city, a castle, and recently renovated? WONDERFUL!!!! This was our first trip to Quebec City and to the Fairmont. I am a frequent Fairmont guest for business, but was fortunate enough to get a room at this historic landmark with my family recently. Rooms, lobby, staff,... More

There are pros and cons to this hotel, but the pros win the day. The biggest negative was the room, which was old and needed updating. The air conditioning wasn't the greatest and the bath tub filled-up with water when showering. We made three requests to get it fixed (I think they tried) but it never was. There were many... More

Since I was a little girl, I have always been fascinated by travelling far north to Canada. My aunt had visited the Chateau Frontenac and always spoke of her visit there in the 1950's. My husband and I were recent guests there and experienced the finest experience a hotel can offer. Extraordinary beauty inside and outside the Chateau, fine dining... More

This review is better late than never. My wife and I stayed here in late April 2012. We stayed for a week. It was our first trip to Quebec City and my wife was really enamoured with the appearance of this hotel. There is a reason it is the most photographed hotel in North America. When you walk into the... More

The Frontenac gives you the ambiance, food, service, and location of being in a European City. There's no where better to stay when visiting this beautiful city. The service, room, amenities were fantastic. The breakfast buffet is not to be missed!
