Various: Arcade Shops Within Chateau Fontenac
The day we visited the Chateau Frontenac we were told there were 1000 students on a visit to the city and wherever we went there were crods of students. We thought we might be safe in the Chateau's shopping arcade, however it was worse as the the hotel was 100 years old and reflected the style of that period, narrow corridors and small shops.
For those who like shopping at prestige hotels I suggest you visit and for tourists who want to see inside the hotel then shopping is a great excuse.

Shopping Along The "Breakneck Staircase"
This is definetly a shopping destination to be reached by walking down the "Breakneck Staircase" due the steep incline on the upward journey. As well as the nice park and viewing platforms there are a variety of shops along the way which kept my wife happy as I took my photos. She actually made purchases from several shops along the way. The shops were actuall very good with a variety of different styles etc.
