5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2009

We stayed here for 2 nights and received a warm welcome from Lise Lapointe, concierge, plus she was available to answer any questions about Q- city and she knows directions like the back of her hand! If driving in you should call for exact directions to the hotel because google maps are confusing with all the one way streets. The lady in charge of breakfast explained the dishes ie., local cheeses and breads, chocolate croissants, rabbit (pate?) and the 24 hr./day coffee machine. You can also eat outside on the patio- if you drop a crumb a flock of birds will befriend you. Fellow guests recommended the Mistral Gagnant restaurant (the hotel desk has a menu) and we had an all inclusive meal- I wish I was there right now!
Very nice stay- best location!

This is a great boutique hotel with very friendly and helpful staff.

Although it is small, in what was one of the earliest 'skyscrapers' of Quebec (not what we call a skyscraper nowadays!), it has been converted carefully and with good attention to detail. The ground floor has comfortable seating and a bar that opens until 3am for guests. This was a great area to relax in.

Our room was one of the standard ones so not large, but carefully furnished. The bathroom had a great large shower and great modern fittings. We really enjoyed being in the room.

Breakfast was nice, with a good selection to choose from, but the area did get a little crowded on one rainy day (everyone had the same idea and slept in late!). There was one computer with internet in the lobby and we found that it was usually free when we wanted it.

The location was excellent - very quiet in the lower town. Although this meant trips up to the upper town for sightseeing, it was easy to walk up or take the furnicular, and we really appreciated being in a quieter area in the evening. There are enough bars and restaurants to give it a little buzz, but we experienced no noise distubance when trying to sleep.

My husband and I stayed in the Hotel Dominion 1912 in the Old City of Quebec for a couple of nights on a romantic getaway. The hotel was fantastic with a great lobby with comfy sofas, a big dining table, tons of books to borrow, free internet and free coffee and tea. It was a wonderful oasis on a hot day. It is a wonderful hotel with nice rooms and extremely comfortable beds. The bathroom in our room was a bit tarted up but was ok. The breakfast is good and varied and it is so nice to have it outside, even if it is near a parking lot. Service is very good and the staff is very helpful. When we were searching for a 3 hour boat trip they suggested a local yachting school which was perfect for what we needed. The tourist office did no such thing so we were very grateful to the staff. The location is great as well. There is nothing bad to say about this hotel except the price is quite steep at $200+ so for families it might be considered too expensive but there were children staying there.

The hotel was simple, yet elegant. The rooms were great; I had the best night sleep I have had in a while! The hotel staff was courteous and very helpful. The hotel was in a great location, the morning breakfast was delicious and the quality of the food and beverages were top notch! We loved this hotel and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!

My husband and I spent two nights at the Hotel Dominion in Quebec City following four nights in Montreal, and I have to say our time in Quebec City was the highlight of the trip for both of us. Hotel Dominion was the perfect accommodation for us in that it was clean, modern, slightly luxurious, but comfortable at the same time--and at a reasonable rate and a convenient location. We stayed in the Germain Queen room and had an excellent view of the river. We even discovered a breathtaking view of the Chateau Frontenac from the hotel (see picture)--it looks amazing at night!

We enjoyed the cappuccino machine in the lobby very much, as well as the continental breakfast. I did not enjoy the croissants (which I never thought I would say about a croissant), but that was fine because I should probably eat more fruit and yogurt anyway. Trays to bring your breakfast to your room was a great touch, even though we didn't use them--maybe next time I'll surprise my husband with breakfast in bed or vice versa *hint hint*. :)

Overall, a comfortable walking distance to everything and super close to the ferries, Museum of Civilization, Old Port, and many fine dining restaurants.

Dominion 1912 is a fine boutique hotel in the old town of Quebec. It is centrally located, modernly furnished and has kind, competent employees. We had a Superior Deluxe Room for our family (with one teen) being on the upper floor with a view to the river and the city. It was quite roomy with a comfortable bed and a spacious bathroom, everything really fancy, we liked it very much. Also included in the rate was a continental breakfast that was nice but the area around the buffet was rather crowded (a lot of business travellers). Overall it was a very pleasant stay in this hotel!

We had a great experience at the Hotel Dominion. When our travel plans went awry due to the Canadian rail strike, the staff was supremely helpful in arranging alternate transportation for us. The rooms are very chic and comfortable (albeit a bit dark) and the free breakfast and all day cappuccino were the icing on the cake. I'd definitely recommend it for those staying in Quebec (just keep in mind it's a bit of a walk to places like Chateau Frontenac, etc., but it's worth it given how great the staff is).
