Normally, I don't write reviews, but this hotel was wonderful for my wife's and my anniversary vacation (and first trip) to Quebec. The exterior shows the age of the building, and is well-maintained. The interior is fully modern. The staff was bi-lingual and very helpful. Philippe, in particularly, took time to orient us with the city when we checked-in, and also provided recommendations and made reservations for us. The charming view from our room included parts of Vieux-Quebec (Old Quebec) and Vieux-Port (Old Port).
The hotel is on the eastern edge of Old Quebec. We found the city's historic areas to be compact and everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. This hotel is in the "lower" city, with plenty to do there -- historic buildings, museums, shopping and restaurants. But a trip to Quebec would not be complete without also seeing the many attractions in the upper city -- Notre Dame Cathedral, Dufferin Terrace, Citadel, etc. This requires walking uphill on streets and/or steps, which was not a problem for us. Alternatively, there is a funicular to the upper city ($2.25 p. person/p. trip), which is about a 5-10 minute, flat walk from the hotel; however, it may have a waiting line if cruise ships are in town. I mention this only because we overheard some people whining about the hills while at the hotel's continental breakfast buffet. So, if you have problems with hills, you may want visit another city entirely or stay in the upper city.
The bedroom/bathroom arrangement might not suit everyone, with the freestanding bath in the bedroom itself, but there is a good shower as an alternative. It would have been helpful if the receptionists had told us how difficult it would be to find a restaurant table at peek times in the evening but all in all a modern gem in a perfect spot.
