Looking at the Chateau Frontenac from any angle, it's simply majestic. The location is superb. The boardwalk is right at its door step. The St Laurence river is in front of it. It's in the Quebec City old town. There are shops, restaurants etc nearby. Very charming. Inside the hotel, the decor is luxurious and old-world. Keep in mind, about... More

Our stay at the Fairmont started off at the wrong foot. We arrived in the am, our room was not ready and we were offered a readily available room on the 3rd floor. The concierge mentioned that the room is very large and that this section of the hotel is being renovated. However, since it's Friday, we won't be affected... More

It had been on my partner's bucket list to stay here and while I was reluctant at first (I like more contemporary hotels) I am so glad we did. True, the Chateau Frontenac is not for the budget traveler. But we hunted around for a good deal online and got a queen room for two nights for $500 all up.... More

Beautiful hotel, rich in history and incredible views. Every employee we spoke with was polite and helpful. Easy to converse as they all spoke English. The rooms are expensive but a lovely place to visit. If you can't get to Europe, Quebec City is a fine substitute!

It was our first stay in a Fairmont, and probably in one of the finest in the world. Unfortunately, we could only stay for one night, but the experience was great in every aspect. There is no area where they did not excel above all other luxury Hotels we stayed before. We couldn't stop "oh wow"-ing during the whole stay.... More

Had a great experience at the Chateau Frontenac.Stayed in the Gold floor which was worth every penny since the service was top notch. Our room was newly renovated three weeks prior to our stay therefore was in perfect condition. Very modern and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and the noise level low. This hotel is the focal point... More

Stayed 8/4 thru 8/7 two rooms $500/night each room. Very poor views, small room, needed to move a chair to see out at an angle to see river. When making reservations we were advised great wonderful views. Advised construction was over but each day workers re-did (worked on roof). When there, discussed our disapproval of room. They advised upgrade was... More

I must offer a contrasting review to the rave ratings of other travelers. My husband and I just returned from QC and the Chateau after a 2-night stay for our anniversary. We had been guests of the Chateau Frontenac in years past (when they were a Canadian Pacific hotel) and had always felt that it was a special experience to... More

It is a beautiful hotel. We stayed here two nights. The rooms were comfortable. If you have trouble walking, ask for rooms closer to the elevators. The hotels is set up in a square. Your room could end up completely on the other side of the entrance. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The concierge made excellent suggestions for... More
