My twin sister and I just returned from our first trip to Quebec City and our stay at Hotel Le Clos St-Louis. We arrived late our first night and were warmly greeted by the young gentlemen working the front desk. The hotel is beautiful with grand floral arrangements, antique furniture and old world charm. We made our way up the winding staircase to the top floor (there is no elevator so if stairs are an issue for you - ask to stay in a room on the first floor). We stayed in Room 9 - The Maids Room. It was beautiful. Our room had its own air conditioning unit that worked perfectly and kept our room nice and cool. The owner, Ghislaine is delightful. After the Concierge took our breakfast order she made a point to come out of the kitchen to introduce herself and wish us a wonderful stay. The breakfasts each morning were delicious and the perfect size to fill you up for a morning of sightseeing and not over stuff you so you couldn't enjoy an outdoor cafe later in the day. We ordered the ham and eggs the first day and french toast with real maple syrup the second day. The Concierge was very friendly and helpful as well, offering to help us plan out our short two day stay in the city. I wasn't sure how security would be in an historic building but they give you two keys: one for the room and another for the front door which locks in the late afternoon and throughout the evening. We felt very safe. The washroom in our room was modern and spacious. The room came with a pair of wine glasses and just enough utensils for us to relax and enjoy a glass of wine and some meats and cheeses in the seating area that had two winged backed chairs and a small table. The location of this hotel is perfect - you are within walking distance of everything. It's on the same street as the Chateau Frontenac and centrally located so that you're never more than a 10 minute walk from all of the attractions. If you've never been to Quebec City before I recommend going to Cafe de Paris (across the street from the hotel) to enjoy great food, a fun and friendly atmosphere and live music. I'd stay away from the Anciens Canadiens restaurant farther down the street towards the Chateau - over priced and unless you speak french the wait staff is dimissive and bordering on rude. We also ate at 1640 Restaurant/Bistro on Rue St Anne which was great. Try the roasted vegetables with goat cheese. The city has an excellent information centre as well on Rue St Anne where they have fully trained information guides that can tell you what the highlights are and you can also book excursions across the lobby in the same building. We really enjoyed the AML boat cruise.
I can't say enough about how much we loved our stay at Hotel Le Clos St-Louis. Ghislaine and her staff make you feel like family and they make every effort to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Upon check out they arranged a taxi for us back to the train station as well which was very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel not only for its charm and modern conveniences but more so because of Ghislaine and her staff. We will definitely be back to this hotel.
