I've never stayed at the Chateau Frontenac but I've always made a point of visiting the elegant lobby areas.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
Le chateau frontenac is the most pictured hotel in the all world. 5 star hotel (on the picture)from 500$ to 2000$ per night but it is not it. Quebec as it all from campsite to B&Bs
manoirs, little hotels, motel don t worried
Unique Quality: Le chateau was built in 1893 as a hotel allong the famous canadian pacific rail road.A brand new wing of 60 rooms was added in 1993 for the 100th aniversary of the hotel. 1943 and 44 churchil and roosevelt met in this hotel to plan and sing the D day attack in normandie for the conference of quebec.
1955 the hotel bough 10 beautifull lights for the comming of elizabeth 2 they are gorgeous in the ball room.
alfred hitchkok made a movie in this hotel.
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.
Unique Quality: A beautiful hotel....I've stayed at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, and the Ritz Carolton in Wash DC...this hotel is on par with them.
Several years ago a friend any myself had the pleasure of staying in the Chateau Frontenac. He is no longer able to travel so I would love to find a tabletop reproduction of the hotel for him to place on his mantle for the Christmas season. I have scoured the web to no avail. Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to obtain such an object on the internet? Thanks to any who have information.
I'd try emailing the hotel itself, it might have a gift shop where they sell them or if such a thing exists, they might know where to buy one
Thanks for the suggestion but I did email the hotel directly and have not had a response.
Hi there, let me know if you where unable to find one on the net, and I will keep an eye open for such thing the next time I pass by some shop. I am quite sure I will find what you are looking for. I live in Quebec City, and will be happy to help you with that matter.
