Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I've never stayed at the Chateau Frontenac but I've always made a point of visiting the elegant lobby areas.

A Castle on the Hill

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 11, 2003

The Chateau Frontenac is exquisite! We stayed in a Gold room, which is the most expensive, but definitely worth it! Especially since it was our honeymoon! The room was beautiful and also included is a private conceriege and lounge (for Gold rooms only). Very romantic. Every night when we returned to our room there was a gift waiting for us....champagne one night, banana nut bread the next, etc. Excellent staff and service. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. The hotel is located in historic Old Quebec, and there are excellent restaurants and shops within walking distance. The scenery and architecture is fabulous.

Unique Quality: Great Views!!!
Beautiful Architecture

My friends and I are not able to afford the Chateau Frontenac at normal rates, but we jumped at the chance to take advantage of a discount weekend there.

The hotel has an amazing Sunday buffet, with an enormous room full of gastronomic delights. . .we actually returned to the hotel room to rest after eating. There is also a small gym, which you can use to assuage any guilt you're feeling after indulging in the buffet.

Unique Quality: Don't forget to visit the St. Laurent Bar & Lounge ~ the view over the river is phenomenal and it's a super place to savour aged whiskey, girly martinis and Cuban cigars. :-) There was even live jazz the evenings we popped in for drinks.

The "Heart" of Old Quebec

by written on April 20, 2003

Construction of the Chateau Frontenac began in the late 1800's, as part of the series of Canadian Pacific Railway hotels. Known as a CP hotel for most of its history, the managing company recently took "Fairmont" as its brand, to increase recognition outside of Canada.

This fairy-tale castle has hosted movie stars, politicians and royalty. . .and still manages to provide excellent customer service to discount guests (like myself) who don't pay the price listed below.

Unique Quality: There are over 600 rooms and suites ~ the decor is very tasteful and the style is very European.

Directions: The Chateau Frontenac stands is visible from most of Old Quebec. It's perched high on the hill and you'll have a hard time missing it.

Le Chateau Frontenac

by written on January 13, 2003

We don't have a whole lot of castles in North American, but the Frontenac is pretty close. I actually got to stay there the last time I was in Quebec. It's impossible to miss in Vieux-Quebec; just look up. It's hosted Queen Elizabeth and Price Philip, Winston Churchill, and FDR. If you can stay there, go for it. If you can't, you can still crawl around the building. There are tours given by staff in period costumes (yeah, a little cheesey, but interesting).

Unique Quality: Amazing terrace.

Directions: Vieux-Quebec

Live like a king

by written on September 7, 2002

The cream of the crop! Chateau Frontenac is a five star gem situated on the edge of Upper Quebec as the king of the hill and the hotel world. I didn't stay overnight in Quebec and even if I did, I can't afford this place, but if you can, go for it.

Unique Quality: The most prestigious hotel in Quebec is also the city's most celebrated landmark. The first structure built on the present day site dates back to 1620, making it one of the oldest structures in North America. The current hotel dates back to 1893 and was designed by New York architect, Bruce Price.
