We made our first trip to Quebec City in August/09 to celebrate our 25th anniversary and after reading countless reviews on different hotels there, finally decided on Hotel 71. What a fantastic choice we made. The location (which is in the lower town) was ideal. Still only a block or two away from the cobbled streets, cafes, shops, etc., but much quieter than the upper town and only two blocks from the St. Lawrence River where there is a beautiful long boardwalk on which we took quite a few long leisurely strolls. The hotel itself used to be the head office of a bank - beautiful architecture on the outside and renovated inside into a fabulous boutique hotel. The rooms are extremely clean and spacious (the bathrooms are truly fantastic with a walk-in glass rain shower, glass bowl sinks, etc). I must say that the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Guests at the hotel are entitled to free coffee from the cafe downstairs 24 hours a day - there's all kinds, lattes, mochas, you name it. It was nice to relax in the cafe and/or the lobby with a free coffee after sightseeing for the day. Also included is a buffet breakfast every morning - cereals, fruit, cheese, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, toast, pastries, juices, etc. which is more than enough to get you started for the day. There is a bar in the lobby (which we only went in twice for a nightcap). The hotel staff are A1 - very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants, etc. If you're in two minds as to whether or not to book this hotel, go ahead. You will not be disappointed. The hotel, along with the beautiful City itself, made for one of the best vacations I've ever had.
