You could easily overlook Le Champlain, its facade is very discreet, but that would be a mistake. Inside, a warm welcome, well-appointed rooms, and more await. My husband and I have stayed in many accommodations in Quebec City since we started coming in the early eighties. Le Champlain has become a favorite hotel because of its superb location, appealing amenities and fine value. We recently stayed 4 nights during Winter Carnival in the hotel's suite with kitchenette. It was great to have a big closet to tuck away all of our bulky winter gear, a comfy couch and chairs to lounge in before the atmospheric electric fireplace, a super-luxe king bed in its own alcove, a nice bathroom and a cooking/dining area to have our indoor picnics and, on top of that, two big windows to let in the morning sun with stunning views onto the old city rooftops, including the iconic Chateau Frontenac and (if you lean out a bit) the Edifice Price. We were blessed with great weather, so we were out taking advantage of live music events, but had we been inclined to stay in our nest, we would have enjoyed the large flat-screen TV and DVD player in the suite. We did make good use of the bedside iPod dock. As others have mentioned, a changing selection of help-yourself breakfast is available off the lobby to have in the pleasant dining rooms or take up. We definitely took advantage of the marvelous magic espresso-cappuccino-hot chocolate machine downstairs too---just the thing for the start, middle or end of the day. From Le Champlain it's an easy walk to the Plains of Abraham, the main site of Carnival activities and to shopping and any number of great restaurants and several market places. We hopefully managed to burn off all of the calories we consumed by making numerous jaunts between Upper and Lower Towns. We had reserved a parking space on site, so it was super-convenient to load and unload during arrival and departure and also when we took a side trip one day to go hiking at Cap Tourmente. All of the personnel made us feel as if we were coming and going from our own home - albeit one with service! When we were out one day, we met a local couple who asked where we were staying. They were familiar with the location, which they agreed is stellar and inquired if the hotel was "clean," should they need to make a recommendation to friends. Our reply? Clean is only the beginning; Le Champlain sparkles in every way. It is a true find and we hope to find ourselves back many times in the future.
