This place is expensive, but I believe worth the money. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. They arranged transportation to the balck bear viewing in Sacre Coeur for me, for example. The hotel also arranges whale watching cruises and transport to the boat departure point. The breakfast was very good. Look on their web site for "specials" which will help mitigate the sticker shock. The grand old resort hotel vibe was an experience in itself. It's worth indulging once in a while, especially to be able to get a good night's rest, which from other reviews appears to sometimes be a problem at other venues in Tadoussac.
There will be a few readers of this review who may arrive from Montreal or Quebec via bus (Intercar), as I did. The bus stop is on top of a hill outside of Toudassac village, and it's a long haul to drag your suitcase down to the waterfront, where the Tadoussac Hotel is, particularly on the night arrival. My US Virgin Mobile cell phone turned out not to work in Canada, or I would have called the Hotel Tadoussac to have their van pick me up from the bus stop.
The front desk expressed surprise that the Intercar bus driver, knowing that I was headed for the Hotel Tadoussac, did not notify them using his cell phone so they could pick me up from the bus stop. Apparently the drivers usually do that. In any case, make sure your cell phone works in Canada and have the hotel phone number with you. They will pick you up using the hotel van.
