I can only describe this hotel as perfect in every single way. I decided to go to Quebec City last minute and had no direction, I am so glad that I stayed here and had amazing staff members helping me out.
The location is central, making it a perfect point to visit any place in Quebec. I took Orleans Express from Montreal, if you ask the bus driver to stop at Dorchester and De La Couronne the hotel is up two blocks. There is a major bus terminal a block away, which was very good for me considering that I wanted to visit Montmorency falls and all I had to do was take the bus across the street (800X). There are many banks, restaurants and shopping places on two avenue blocks away (St. Joseph and Charest). Then on the other side of the hotel you have the stairs and elevator to go up the upper city, one blocks away you have rue De La Tourelle or st. Oliver which has many shopping opportunities and if you follow those streets within 15 minutes you will find yourself at the entrance of the old city. In the summer, I believe that the circus will be held 3 blocks away from this hotel. This hotel is the ideal central location.
The staff is amazing, very nice, professional, caring and personable. Claude is an amazing host and Danny gives great advise; both know so much about the city and are a big help. Detailed tourist maps are provided for free; Danny went over the maps, describing how to walk to certain areas and marking off the attractions. He created an entire itinerary for me, that was exactly what I needed considering I had no direction. He is the one who told me about the falls and how to get there, very thankful. They have a DVD selection and they provide that for free as well, the movies are in English as well as in French. There are two doors, one is the main entrance and the other is the back door that you are given the security code for. The hotel is very safe and staff is always available.
I stayed in room 8, Claude and Danny helped me and my boyfriend with our bags. Claude made sure that I understood the room and how to use it, nothing was typical, everything is updated and unique. The shower is insane! Shower heads, body sprayers and very nice rose soaps - amazing. Claude showed us how to use the various lighting, the TV, shower and the heating system (which there is one for the room and then one for the bathroom). The bed and the pillows were the softest I have slept on during a hotel stay. You are provided with some very soft towels and robes. My room had a very comfy couch with a leg rest in front of the TV, which all have DVD players. I was very happy to have high speed wireless internet and a fridge in my room. The room itself is situated at the end of the 3rd floor and it has amazing views of three streets. These are high traffic streets, but the double glass windows made the room very quiet (he told us that he installed them about two weeks ago). Each room is unique, mine was perfect for a relaxing romantic gateway.
The hotel is BEAUTIFUL! Art has really inspired the design, I love the Van Gogh inspired floor in the lobby, its amazing. Everything is really artistic and carefully designed with quality material. The furniture is of really good quality, a lot was invested into the design and material. The place is spotless and really clean.
In the mornings we had an amazing breakfast; nothing was frozen, premade or military food like in other places. Whatever we wanted, they made it for us! FRESH along with fruit on the side and presented professionally. I loved the French toast and the homemade raspberry jam.
My expectations were blown away, everything was flawless, if I could rate this place over a 5 I would. Perfect and I am coming back.
Pros: Location, clean comfy beautiful room, quality materials, great breakfast, amazing staff, high speed wireless internet.... everything!
