Quebec City is a must see for every Canadian interested in our profound history –– to think that a 20 minute battle in 1759 shaped the destiny of the entire continent of the new world, Canada and the United States alike, astounding. We visit every chance we get, and always wowed by its beauty every time. Since this trip involved business as well, we stayed at Le Concorde, and found the hotel perfectly acceptable, even though it needs a major update, especially the bathrooms, which in our room at least, was decidedly old-fashioned, tiny and tired. As usual we asked for a corner room, and were given one, and even though it didn't have windows on two sides (a stairwell occupies the actual corner), it did give protection from corridor and neighbour noise, as the rooms are not sound-proof, alas. Our room was above the 20th floor, and had an outstanding view directly towards the Chateau Frontenac, the Citadel, much of the Plains of Abraham, the St Lawrence, Levis, and in the distance, Ile d'Orleans: beautiful. This view does much to make up for other deficiencies. Le Concorde is a short walk from everything you want to see: special highlights include the small Jardin de Jeanne d'Arc, the extensive Champs de Bataille, and the magnificent Hotel de Parlement modelled on the Louvre which houses the Assemblee Nationale –– take a tour of the great interior and look closely at the sculptures honouring major figures, both English and French, and the magnificent bronze fountain in front. Le Concorde is also a short walk from the Musee Nationale des Beaux Arts with its permanent exhibition of the great work of Jean-Paul Riopelle. A must see. And then of course, a short walk from the restaurants along le Grande Allee, from all the treasures and pleasures of Old Quebec, both upper and lower towns. A final note: the revolving restaurant on the top floor offers breathtaking views of all of Quebec and its surrounds, so well worth a visit. The service is good, and the breakfast buffet at $20 per person is reasonably priced, and the food acceptable, though not great. The staff throughout are wonderful and all have that unique Quebecois charm and friendliness, and all are fluent in English, which at times is a drag as I didn't always get a chance to practice my French. Vive le Quebec!
