SUPERB, AMAZING, 5 STAR I don't think I've ever stayed at a better hotel than this! Honestly I love travel and I love staying at luxurious hotels but sometimes you don't need to stay at a Hilton or Starwood owned hotel. Sometimes the best places to stay are independently owned Mom and Pop Bed and Breakfasts or small Boutique Hotels. My gf's parents had suggested to us that we go to Quebec City for our annual summer time trip. I said to myself Canada really?! Come on! I want to head to Miami or California or somewhere awesome but I figured you know what keep an open mind and their suggestion turned out to be awesome. Quebec City has so much architectural and historical beauty it's quite a sight to see. Also so many unique places to go and shop as well. For the most part everyone was pretty friendly and although they speak predominantly French most people were willing to switch over to English while having a conversation.
Now to the hotel which we found on BOOKING.com for an absolute incredible deal, from what I remember it was 50% off of the original prices for the two night weekend so I booked the deal right away. After looking at Yelp and TripAdvisor I immediately decided to pull the trigger and followed up with a call the next and they answered all of my questions happily. Upon arrival we pulled up and my gf went inside and grabbed an older gentleman who showed us to the private garage that's across the street. Now that I wasn't expecting! So wonderful that we didn't have to worry about taking the car anywhere, we just used cabs to get around. (although pricey now they probably have UBERx so I can't wait to go back) You could tell this place was first class when you walked in. One guy grabbed our bags and brought it to our room while we filled out the necessary paperwork and then the gentleman who had helped us in answered all of our questions on where to go eat, sightsee, and party all in under 10 minutes. We surveyed the lobby area which had an area for morning breakfast for all guests and then there was a little couch area with a ton of magazines, books, and a Flatscreen TV w/ a fire place and then a ton of DVD's (popular movies) you could choose from to watch in your room. All you had to do was use a sign in and sign out sheet ! FREE OF CHARGE! Just make sure you return them back in the condition they were in.
The room was beautiful, not gigantic but definitely not small, just the right size and the shower was so so so lavish and well damn seductive. Glass encased shower, with an awesome raindrop shower head and then a detachable bar like shower head and little nooks so you could sit in the shower ?!?! HEAVEN ! I do wish that they would upgrade the TV's but honestly the room was so beautiful and spacious that was the least of our problems. The beds?! YES IT'S LIKE SLEEPING ON A CLOUD! I knew we would be out every night so I made sure before we left to let the front desk know to give us a wake up call at 9 so we could make it down to breakfast for 9:30. I can't remember if it was late night or each morning but I do remember them giving us slips and selections of what we wanted to eat for the next morning. YES THEY HAD CHEFS COME COOK US AMAZING FIRST CLASS BREAKFAST MEALS. I I believe on the menu they had eggs Benedict, french toasts, pancakes and a few Canadian style breakfasts to choose from.
Relatively quick walk to the main restaurant and bar area in that section of Quartier Saint-Roc, Quebec City and I would say about a 10-15 minute cab ride to the main downtown restaurant/shopping/tourist area and the Chateau Frontenac hotel as well.
THANK YOU CLAUDE for making us feel like we were at home. We definitely will be coming back someday soon !
