Many reviewers found the location convenient for accessing Québec City attractions either on foot or by car.

The Bad
As mentioned above, positive reviews for this hotel greatly outnumbered negative reviews, among the reviews sourced for this analysis. However, there were a couple of common concerns and a few isolated complaints.

Several guests found the location of the parking facility inconvenient because it did not provide direct access to the hotel. A couple of reviewers also thought that the parking fees ($16 per day) were expensive.

While many guests praised the location of this property (as mentioned above) a few reviewers found the walk to Old Québec long (about 20-30 minutes) and difficult because there were many hills. These guests suggested that this location may not be ideal for those who are not inclined to walk.

Isolated complaints included: difficulty maintaining a comfortable in-room temperature, unpleasant views from the guest rooms of neighbouring buildings, and slow elevators.
