From the very beginning we knew that this was going to be a great hotel!
that day we had driven from Montreal after doing business there & due to a horrrific storm got completely lost in the hills behind Quebec city. Eventually after much anguish & frustration we arrived exhausted at the hotel.
My wife was at the end of her tether as she alighted the car to be welcomed by a remarkably perceptive young doorman who assessing the situation in a flash said: "dont worry about anything, I will take care of everything for you, park your car & bring up all your luggage, just go inside & we'll get you into your room."
Well the tension melted alway & from then on our experience at this hotel was exceptional!
The style of the hotel is an interesting & sucessful mix of classic & modern. Our corner room (suite?) was superb with a separate
lounge. the bedroom & lounge had stunning views over the river & the old town. (this room was not listed on website as there are only two, we rang & booked it over the phone from australia).
The bed was very comfortable with quality bedlinen & pillows.
A nice touch (as has been mentioned) was the all day & all night coffee (& hot chocolate) available down near reception. This was not a automatic machine but from a quality expresso machine. Very nice!
We loved the staff who were attentive & intelligent (unlike most of the hotel staff in states who are only interested in tips).They always gave us good advice re eating out & sightseeing.
Had top-end, large flat screen tvs in both rooms with sliding doors between so if, like us, you have different sleeping patterns or suffer from jet lag, one can watch tv while the other sleeps undisturbed in the bedroom!
all-in-all the best stay of our round the world trip!
We would go back to Quebec just to stay here.
By the way the french canadians were fantastic, not rude or difficult as some will have you believe.
