"Beautiful hotel/theatre next to the gates to Old Quebec!"

"Great spot! Beautiful hotel! We stayed in the hotel because it is right in the same building as the Theatre Capitole, where we were seeing a concert, and therefore so convenient (and just plain cool). The gates to Old Quebec are right beside the hotel, so to experience the beauty of Old Quebec is right around the corner. I am very happy I chose to stay there, and definitely will again."

"First of all the hotels location to QC areas of interest was excelant. The room I had was probably one of the smallest and most interesting I have ever stayed in, let me make clear that I loved the room. The layout of the room was most clever which is what compensated for the size. The entire hotel was very clever and cute and again I really enjoyed my visit."
