What a marvelous old hotel! It is located in the St. Jean part of the city, approx. 10 minute walk to Chateau Frontenac. The hotel has many good restaurants nearby, including Paillard a wonderful breakfast cafe.From the moment we entered until check out 3 days later we were charmed by the friendly staff, the retro (newly decorated) lobby and our room! The room was large enough for 2 queen beds, 2 arm chairs, TV, etc. with plenty of room to spare. The beds and linens (esp pillows) were extremely comfortable. The bath room was very sumptuous with a glass enclosed shower complete with "rainfall" shower head, and a large vessel sink atop a granite counter..very elegant. The front desk staff was charming, very helpful and very friendly. If there is one "downside" it is that you need to climb 22 stairs to get to the lobby. This was not a problem for us, but other (older) people were having some difficulty. However, as we checked out the bellman told us you can enter thru the adjacent garage and not climb steps to get to hotel lobby. Highly recommend!
