Reviewed 22 September 2008

Our experience was exactly what we were prepared for after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. The room we requested was in the "Superior" category and had a view of the Chateau Frontenac (Room 47, by the way). The window opened onto the courtyard of the Ursuline Convent School so we didn't have to contend with any street noise. The staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful, and the breakfast buffet was beyond expectation--hardboiled eggs, cheese, pork terrine, croissants, waffles, bagels, fresh fruit and stewed prunes, mueslix, a variety of breads, cereal, yogurt, coffee, cream, orange juice. I would suggest getting down to breakfast before 9 a.m., as the room seems to fill up fast after that.

Reading all the prior reviews for this hotel convinced us to stay here. We were not disappointed. There is a complimentary breakfast from 7-10 am including an espresso machine that is available all day. Our room included a queen size bed along with a sofa sleeper. Many hotels in the area do not have queen size beds. The location is walking distance to many tourist attractions. There is a computer for use in the lobby--also complimentary. We found the front desk very helpful when we needed assistance. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again if our travels lead us to Quebec City. Bring your walking shoes and enjoy this great town!

Stayed at Hotel Champlain during busy Labor Day weekend. Last minute booking, price rather high but to be expected during such a busy time. Experience at hotel excellent. Staff are so friendly and helpful, from the receptionists to the cleaning staff. Rooms are modern but still homely. Hotel has been updated to a high standard, but some things give away the age of the previous decor like doors and closets. Had not reserved parking space, so for first two days parked at SPAQ Hotel de Ville, which cost 24CAD, then changed to hotel parking lot when space became available. Location is extremely convenient to every part of the town that a tourist could want to access. All in all, very enjoyable stay, and to be highly recommended!

It was not easy to find a room, rather last minute, during high season and Quebec's 400th anniversary year. I was a little disappointed when our usual accommodations were sold out, but it was a delight to discover Le Champlain Hotel. The hote's rather lackluster facade is so discreet that you could walk past it without realizing it. Once you enter however, the imaginative renovation of this 1950's building will enchant you as will the welcoming staff. Many colorful and comfortable design touches make this boutique property uplifting. We found our room and bathroom well laid out and furnished (albeit the mattress was a bit too firm). Windows opened to the breezes, wireless Internet worked flawlessly, water pressure and temperature was excellent. We had plenty of room to relax. Truck traffic in the mornings was loud, but the rest of the time, the predominant sound was the clip-clop of the horses pulling caleches below us. Parking right at the hotel was very convenient; be sure to reserve a space when you book your room or you may have to park at the Hotel de Ville public parking. Breakfast was fine; a warm bread pudding was a nice touch. Try to avoid prime times however, because the traffic pattern of the breakfast room is awkward. Location is excellent for walking everywhere in Vieux Quebec and it's easy to drive in and out for further destinations, like the Ile d'Orleans. My favorite hotel in Quebec is still the Dominion 1912, but Le Champlain is a decent substitute, especially at a significantly lower price.

There were four of us, all adults travelling around Canada, so needed to keep to a tight budget. We booked this hotel as the room was advertised as a 'one bedroom suite' and lastminute actually stated on their website that this was a 'private bedroom'. This has now been removed. The room's are lovely, but the two beds are right next to each other in the same room! No private bedroom at all!
Breakfast, decor, staff and location are brilliant, so book up if there's just the two of you!

great location! hotel is in old quebec, within walking distance of all tourist attractions, shopping, and restaurants (but be prepared for achy feet). 5 story hotel. decor is mix of modern and cozy for lack of a better word. seems to be newly renovated. room was decent size. computer with free internet in lobby was great. free breakfast, but breakfast was not so good (bad coffee, stale croissants, didn't try the rest). staff was incredibly nice and helpful. rooms were very clean but the air in the rooms was stale, and the window doesn't open much. most travelers were 50 plus.
