I went on my honeymoon and stayed at this hotel. This place is excellent. We were there for 7 days, 6 nights. This hotel is situated right by the Chateau Frontenac, with a nice view of the back of the Chateau. It is also right on the street where there are a lot of artists and musicians. Right next door is the Office of Tourism, where you can buy tickets to other things in and around Quebec City. The manager I talked to gave us a sweet deal, and I don't know if it's because we were on our honeymoon, or stayed a long time. The rate we paid was comparable to staying at the Chateau, but we got a lot more - breakfast, dinner, and a parking discount. We also had breakfast every morning at their restaurant, 1640, and three 5 course meals. We were also able to get a discount on parking and parked in an underground lot not far from the hotel. Can I say, this was the best deal and the best location! The room itself was comfortable and recently renovated (including the bathroom). We had free wifi. Our room overlooked the street where people were getting dropped off by tour buses (lots of bustling especially Thur-Sun), and had a view of the Chateau Frontenac. I remember looking out over a man dressed in a clown suit making balloon animals for children.
The food is amazing! Everyone morning we had a delicious breakfast (again, included in the price). The dinners we had at 1640 also were very fancy, and at times, I was embarrased because I wasn't wearing evening wear. If you eat indoors in the fancy part, try not to wear casual. There are 3 sections to the restaurant - outdoors, which we ate every morning, indoors near where the bar/bartender was, and indoors that was more fancy. That is where we ate our dinners - and I ate really well! This was top notch French cuisine. The food was so good, and would definitely recommend even though you aren't staying in the hotel. Our meals were part of our hotel stay, but if you eat there and not stay there, be prepared for the price $$$$.
In addition, the location is ideally situated, right near one of the gates of the walled-in city, so you can easily walk in and out of Old Quebec. Not far of a walk from shopping either! We didn't use our car all week; there was plenty of public transportation for outside old Quebec. And when they down the hill, they literally the hill. There are elevators and stairs to the lower part of Quebec, which was so neat. We loved it here. The people were so nice.
I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are with your friends or as a couple. I would definitely come back! Such charm!
