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.
