The Holiday inn Express in the Sainte-Foy district of Quebec City really hits it right on very note. This is everything a modern business class hotel, like a Holiday Inn Express should be. It's funny that I had to travel all the way to Quebec City to find it!
If you're used to the standard HI Express in the states, it's almost the same..just...slightly...better! The room is very clean and has been recently remodeled. I really like the additional of faux hardwood floors (laminate) instead of nasty hotel carpet. Plus the ultra modern sink and bathroom decor was a real bonus. Other people have complained about noise, but I didn't hear a peep from anyone and the hotel was packed full during my stay.
As a business traveler, I appreciated the little things that this hotel gets right. Super comfy bed and pillows, and A/C that is easy to use and is quiet, wonderful and powerful hot shower, and very easy to connect hi-speed wireless internet! My only complaint, if I can find one, is that in the bathroom the only amenities are the usual crappy HI Express shampoo and conditioner and soap which smell way too much like their super sweet cinnamon buns for my taste.
The staff was very helpful in explaining to me how to use the tourist bus into downtown Quebec. The bus leaves from the hotel next door and is $3 CAD for a full day pass. It was super easy and convenient, and I don't speak a word of French.
I am sure there are plenty of super nice boutique or small hotels in Quebec City, but as a frequent business traveler, I am all about the Priority Club points. But I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to the area!
