I like this budget-friendly and highly-rated hotel for its pleasant and clean rooms in the west end of Quebec City, about 16 minutes away from the downtown area attractions. It has easy access to Hwy 40, making it a good hotel for those travelling by car. It's about 11 minutes to the airport and guests say there are restaurants nearby, and a Tim Hortons just outside the hotel.

Wi-Fi is included in the room rate and works well, according to guests. Guests also enjoyed comfortable beds in their clean rooms, and all guest rooms offer a mini-fridge for added convenience. The hotel serves a standard continental breakfast adding value to the stay. And parking is plentiful and comes free of charge to all guests.

Tips For Staying In Quebec City

Top Areas to Say In Quebec City

1. Vieux Quebec (Old Quebec City) 

As the name implies, Old Quebec City is the old, walled-city of Quebec. It is famous for its European atmosphere, cobble-stoned streets, and historic charm. In fact, Old Quebec is so rich with history and culture it's actually classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- one of only 16 such sites in Canada. This Canadian gem is an excellent example of a fortified colonial town that UNESCO calls "the most complete in North America." 


Old Quebec is divided into two areas: Upper Town and Lower Town. Upper Town, which is built on a scenic cliff, is home to many churches and monuments, the Citadel of Quebec, and the very famous and photogenic Le Chateau Frontenac. This area is also the religious centre of Old Quebec and once served as the administrative and governing region of the city. Lower Town is home to some of the oldest parts of the city, including some 17th- and 18th-century houses. There you'll also find the harbour, which has important historical significance as it acted as a major shipping port to and from Europe. 


From a lodging perspective, the hotels tend toward boutique-style hotels in smaller and historic buildings. Accordingly, some of the usual amenities of more modern structures, such as elevators and convenient parking, are rare or non-existent. However, for those able to contend with those inconveniences, the area's delightful character will no doubt provide a cultural experience unique within North America. 


2. Downtown Quebec City

Beyond the walls of Old Quebec City lies the rest of what is considered downtown Quebec City. Though the area generally defined as downtown Quebec City includes Old Quebec City, there is certainly more to the city than just the old streets. It's here you'll also find some of the cities more modern hotels, and some of the larger brands, including the Hilton, and Delta

What to do in Quebec City
Quebec City really is a beautiful place to visit and worth your time to spend a few nights. There are loads of historic churches and museums to induce an extreme onslaught of boredom in your kids for your next family vacay. And, if you have some extra dollars (like a lot of extra dollars) burning a hole in your wallet you should spring for a room at the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac. Even though this place is well over 100 years old, meaning the rooms are fairly non-standard shapes and sizes, it's a place where you can be pampered like royalty and feel like you're staying in a castle.


Surrounding Area
If you visit Quebec City in the winter and you're a skier or snowboarder, you're in luck. Quebec City is roughly a 30 minute drive from a handful of great ski resorts, including Mont-Sainte-Anne, Stoneham and Le Relais.
