Hotel 71
Ranked #11 of 102 Hotels in Quebec City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2007

We stayed at this establishment for three days in March, 2007.

Hotel 71 is a quiet, clean, and modern hotel. However, it does not merit the exceptionally positive feedback on this site. The staff are, indeed, very nice and eager to please. However, they are all very young and seem to lack the experience necessary to take the level of service to the highest possible level. At times, they were a bit confused and could not coordinate simple functions, such as the valet service.

While it is true that they will order and pick up food for you from nearby establishments (there is no room service here), it is clear that not all staff members are aware of this. Keep in mind that a hefty gratuity is charged automatically on this. We tipped generously when our food was delivered, and were left with a bad taste in our mouths when we saw the charge on our bill upon checkout.

We experienced major inconveniences with our shower. While the “rain shower” does appear quite tantalizing in the marketing material, it provided us with lukewarm water which trickled down unto us and was not at all satisfactory. That aside, the rooms are well-arranged, clean, and generally quiet.

The "gym" is quite small and cannot accommodate more than a couple of people at a time.

Overall, a good experience, but one which did not leave us glowing with happiness and frothing at the mouth like some others on this site.

Reviewed 12 June 2007

My fiancee and I absolutely enjoyed our weekend stay at this hotel. The property was very well maintained, tastefully designed, and situated in the perfect location to enjoy Quebec City. It's tucked away in Vieux Quebec away from all the tourists and very close to all the great restaurants. It's also just a 10 minute walk and to the upper town. We stayed in a suite (room 629) with a king size bed and a beautiful view of the St. Lawrence River. The bed was absolutely confortable and the rain shower was amazing. My only regret about this room is that there isn't a soaking tub like some of the other rooms that I had read about. However, the trade-off for the beautiful view was well worth it. The suite has a separate living room with a TV and a surrond sound DVD system. There was also a flat LCD TV in the room as well. I got a chance to utilize the excercise room and thought it was well equiped with a treadmill, two exercise bikes, and a free weight bench. The free coffee at the 24 hour cafe was also a bonus to all hotel guests where you can get freshly made coffee anytime of the day. The complimentary breakfast was not the best continental breakfast that I have seen, but it was sufficient. There were some great crossaints, granola, cereal, and fresh fruits. The best part of the hotel is the attentive staff and friendly service. From the front desk, to the coffee bar, to the breakfast crew, everyone was very polite and willing to help. I arrived at the hotel before it was time to check in, so I left my bags with them and went for a walk. I then returned to the hotel 3 hours later to find my bags waiting in my room. The service at 71 was impeccable. I would definitely return to this hotel during my next visit.
