Best location to stay in Old Quebec

Just wondering where the best location is to stay in Old Quebec? We will be there for Christmas this year and don't know whether to stay near Champlain Boulevard, on the Marina or more in the middle of the town? We would like to be close to all fo the action and the cafes and restaurants. Recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Le Château Frontenac at Christmas time is really good.

While the Frontenac is always my top recommendation for a hotel as well, for a more general answer, if the Frontenac does not fit your budget or needs, is to stay first in the Old City, which predominately is within the walls. Second, the Old City is divided between Upper and Lower Town. Most recommend, like my self, staying in Upper Town, where the Frotenac is. There are more lodging options, restaurants, shops, cafes, etc., and it is easily accessible to areas just outside the walls, such as the restaurants along Grand Allee. Lower Town is terrific also, but smaller and quieter, with fewer options, especially at night.

I totally agree with JDP, the upper part of the old town is my favourite location. More going on and much easier walking to everything. Also very easy to visit the lower town.

I'll third JDP's post. Upper Town in the Old City is the prime locale.

My husband and I were there last week and stayed at Augberge Place d'Armes for four nights. Fantastic location, great hotel, wonderful service including delicious breakfasts! This was our first trip to Quebec and thanks to all the help we received from the destination experts, it was up there with one of our best trips. Will definitely return.
