We met the challenge of this city and walked 12,000 plus steps per day! The long weekend trip was greeted with perfect weather. We bought art, which was a superb value. One dining experiences were all excellent. The comfort dip in the hotel lobby was quite a hit. One of the most beautiful cities eve!

Stayed here several nights in mid February with my wife and our 7 year old daughter. The hotel was my wife's preference but I enjoyed it. I don't particularly care for luxury hotels but as they go, Le Chateau Frontenac is not over the top. For me the best part is its location in the old city and its historic...

We stayed at the Frontenac on our first visit to Quebec City three years ago and it is hard to go anyplace else now. Back again this year for March break, and you can't beat this experience anywhere else. Everything about this property is grand, from the lobby to the pool, and I can only imagine the ballrooms! Excellent service....

I had stayed in the Hotel Frontenac about 40 years ago and was very disappointed. Although built as a luxury hotel over 100 years ago, by the 1970s it had sadly deteriorated in an old, smelly dump. Fortunately in the 21st century, it was bought and renovated by the luxury Fairmont chain and is now great again. Save up and...

Still pinching myself, that we were lucky enough to visit not only Quebec City, but to stay in this amazing hotel. We upgraded our base room and had a stunning view out over the river. Rooms are a little small. But was still enjoyable. Great location, and experiencing our first northern winter, we loved every.minute of it.

This hotel is nothing short of amazing. The entrance is welcoming and impressive even during terrible weather. There are lots of doormen, bellboys and valets.
