i was here in mid fall of 2013. its a grand hotel. fairmont had brought the property at some point and is/was spending spending a fortune to restore it to its previous grandeur. and it seems to be working. for a space this humongous, they are doing a pretty good job. the views are completely breathtaking, the lobby and the ballroom where i saw jose felliciano (another story) made me feel like i had gone back in time. i'm not a proponent of weddings and the ridiculous expenses thanks to the bridezillas of this world, HOWEVER, it would be a lovely space for a reception.
the location is right in old quebec...or at the top of it...at there is fantastic (expensive) shopping, tons of eateries, and lots to take in. at times you feel the french and french canadian flavor and at times its feels very bavarian. i couldn't make up my mind if it felt more like austria/germany or france or quebec. anyway, it was great.
the staff were all helpful and friendly. and though there were some pockets of missed opportunity, they really truly do try to make for a pleasant stay.
