Hotel for Winter Carnival 2008


Planning to go to Quebec City for the last weekend of the winter carnival in Feb. I was looking at the following hotels: Manoir de L'Esplanade and Auberge Le Vincent as possibilities. I know these are far apart but i was wondering which would be best to get around to the winter carnival while also being able to take in the sites of the city.

The closest to most Carnaval's activities would be Manoir de l'Esplanade. A TA member has had a real bad experience with its staff in the past (reservation not honoured, no excuse, no relocalisation & no refund offered) and I have not heard of any other experience since, so I am not sure it would be the best place.

Auberge Le Vincent is in Lower Town, quite a distance from the majority of the Carnaval's activities, but if you get a good price and do not mind walking a bit, there is a (free) lift, or alternatively, a flock of stairs to exercise on :-) from Lower Town to Ste Claire St Upper Town nearby, and from there you could walk up maybe 15 minutes to the sites. Once you get off the lift, or escalator if you prefer, you walk up to St Jean St, where there are several restaurants and original stores, there is a good Irish Bar in the area, Nelligan's, and you would be at maybe 10 minutes walk from the walls.
