“Another HIE winner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

Over the past few years we've become big fans of the HIE chain, having had positive experiences in each of those we frequented. HIE Quebec City (Sainte-Foy) was similarly excellent, with the added twist of very modern, upscale room decor.

The hotel is well-situated, a 10 minute drive west of downtown Quebec City, adjacent to the bridges crossing the St. Lawrence--making travel to, say, Levis, a snap--and ready freeway access (regarding which, note that rush hour backups heading southbound to the bridges is horrendous, starting early as 3:30 p.m.). There are quite a few restaurants nearby, but although walkable for some, there's nothing remotely scenic about the immediate area.

We found the HIE staff on all shifts to be pleasant and helpful. In particular, they'll make reservations and take payment for the many tours available, at least some of which will offer free pick up/drop off at the HIE. Although the drive to Quebec's Old City is an easy, straight-shot from the hotel, prepare yourself for the maze of narrow, one-way streets you'll find there (as well as for the parking places you won't find there!).

Traveling in and through Quebec City was delightful, but we found that viewing it from across the river in Levis gave us an interesting and useful different perspective.

Staff were friendly and helpful, the place was impeccably clean, and the breakfast exceeded expectations.
2 minutes from the aquarium, and 5 minutes from Champlain, which takes you along the St. Lawrence to "Old Quebec".
Definately recommended.

The Holiday Inn Express is located outside of the actual city, but it is a very short and cheap bus to old Quebec. The location is ideal if you plan to drive outside of the city, as the entrance to the highway is right across the street. Rooms are larger than what you would typically find within the city. Hotel is extremely clean and the staff could not be any friendlier. The included breakfast is also quite good with a nice variety of hot and cold items. We enjoyed our stay here very much.

The rooms at this Holiday Inn express are very modern and clean. The breakfast was large and had a good variety. The staff was very helpful with directions, tourism suggestions and currency exchange. It was an easy drive down Blvd. Champlain to get to the old city. I would definitely stay there again.

Between missing our flight and rescheduling another one, we called the hotel and the staff (Dave and Jennifer) worked with us thru the whole ordeal to accomodate us. We finally arrived at the hotel after a long trip. They met our late arrival with a pleasant welcome and a great room that made up for the travel ordeal. Everything went great from there on. THANK YOU HI EXpress Sainte-Foy, you are a class act!

Room Tip: Call the hotel and ask the staff . They know best.

The Holiday Inn Express is conveniently located right next to the main highway and is a 2-minute drive from the main strip of Boulevard Laurier where you'll find several gas stations, a shopping mall, and lots of other stores and restaurants.

The hotel is about 9 km to Old Quebec, so it's about a 15-minute drive across Boulevard Laurier. It was nice seeing some of the beautiful houses along the way.

Inside the hotel, it was very clean and the staff was very nice. In the lobby, there's a plaque on the wall from TripAdvisor giving a 4.5/5 rating for the hotel. My friends and I stayed in a room with two comfortable queen beds, amazing laminate floors and a very nice bathroom. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was very good as well. You have to try the cool pancake dispenser.

Stay here all the time, love the laminate floors, more hotels should get rid of their carpet in favor of surfaces where weird stuff (and you know what I mean) can't hide.

I'll be back
