I am not sure of too much of the back ground story of the building in which Auberge Saint-Antoine is located but given its location and outside facades, it is somewhat older and was a different use at one point. Historic or boutique hotels have charms but often lack amenities and/or feel dirty and aged. New hotels are new and shiny but are often in secondary locations and feel like you could be in any suburb in the world. People often try to take the "best of both worlds" but rarely does it seem to come together. I would say that Auberge Saint-Antoine is the exception where it really does come together and offer the best of all worlds.
We loved the location which is in the lower town, about half way between the water and the Hotel Frontenac. The area where the Hotel Frontenac is located is probably closer to the middle of the town's activities, but I think I like the location of the Auberge Saint-Antoine better. It is on historic streets and tucked in the lower city only a few block from the bustle up the hill but feels like a very quaint, historic and authentic part of the lower city.
The room was spacious for a boutique hotel and the bathroom was nice, new and clean but classic as well. One wall of our room was exposed brick which I thought was a nice touch and made the room feel warm and inviting, and was all a good way to explain the entire hotel. There were many well done small touches aroudn the hotel that made it warm and inviting while also being new and clean feeling. They have little artifacts next to the room numbers outside of each door. It is a little hard to describe but was well done. Also, a good amount of wood and brick exposure around the wall ways and lobby.
The staff was also great. Nothing in particular but attentive and helpful. We changed dinner reservations one night and asked the conceirge to cancel the reservation we were no longer needing and she was great. It was a little thing but that way in which she responded was perfect and exactly how you would want her too.
This is probably one of the most glowing reviews I have ever given a hotel and truthfully, I didn't necessarily even leave the hotel blown away by it, but almost in hindsight everything about the hotel was a cut above and then taken in totality, it is one of the better hotels that I have stayed at. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
