We recently spent 3 nights at the Holiday Inn Express, Quebec City. When booking our accommodations, we researched all of the "top" hotels in the area and found most of them lacking some of the things on our (we thought) simple wish list: reasonably priced breakfast, free wireless, in-room refrigerator, free parking, close to Centre-Ville. At first glance we thought Holiday Inn Express had all but the latter, but as it turned out we weren't far from Old Quebec at all, and the HI Express offers a free shuttle which allowed us to leave our vehicle behind while we enjoyed the sights. For those who like to shop, there is plenty of shopping nearby as well.
We found the staff to be friendly and helpful- they recommended restaurants for dinner, gave directions and arranged tours. Nobody hesitated to speak English to us. Our room was spacious, upscale, quiet, and clean. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. We left our vehicle parked at the hotel and used the shuttle every day - a welcome change after an almost 12-hour drive to reach Quebec.
Holiday Inn Express provides excellent value. Many of the people on the tours we took, who were staying at the well known hotels downtown, said that they weren't getting much sleep as the annual music festival went on into the night and the noise from the streets was keeping them awake. They were also complaining about paying for a breakfast of muffins and fruit - we enjoyed free daily options including cinnamon buns, scrambled or boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, potato puffs, pancakes, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit and more every morning at no additional cost.
We are taking another short trip soon and as soon as we arrived home we checked to see if there was a Holiday Inn Express in the area - there is, and we've booked our room.
