Once it was decided we would attend the famous Quebec Carnival (60 years old), we started looking for hotel options. We knew not to look in the Sainte-Foy area as this was too far from the main site; we looked for those closest to the old quarters. Based on what was shown on their site, we reserved with them. A very, very good choice!!
We were 3 couples and two of them opted to be in the same room with 2 beds. All the couples agreed this was a wonderful setting. The rooms were large enough and very clean. This is an older building, but it was obvious the whole had been gutted out and everything about it is new, modern and upscale.
The service staff are very pleasant, very accommodating, and did everything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We all decided to eat at the hotel restaurant (Il Matto) and this, too, was a good decision. Italian menu that was very well presented and enjoyable - all 3 couples complimented their respective choices. Their wine selection is fine, maybe a little pricey especially if one is familiar with the product and their true retail price; then again they're in the restaurant business and not a charity case!!!
We all agreed this would be our hotel of choice next year...
