Majestic Quebec City grand dame built to look like a French château, with a notable spa and wine and cheese bar
Fairmont Le Château Frontenac channels the Old World glamour and history of Quebec City. Built in 1893 to mimic a French château, this stately sleep towers over the charming cobblestone streets of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its turreted and copper-roof is a tourist attraction itself, with more than 100 years of history to take in. But don’t expect some fusty old grand dame. Following a $75 million renovation in 2014, the interiors have been lovingly restored to their original grandeur, from the 611 guest rooms, to the lobby’s Italian blue onyx panels and custom 15-foot crystal chandelier. Chef Stéphane Modat is at the helm of revamped Champlain Restaurant, while the 1608 Wine & Cheese Bar offers one of the city’s largest cheese selections. The seven-room Spa du Château debuted from the recent overhaul and is located on the sixth floor; book a treatment after going for a dip in the pool or working out in the fitness center.
In the Area
Award-winning architectural gem Musée de la Civilisation houses a valuable collection that links past, present and future. Also in the Old Port district, Petit-Séminaire Chapel features trompe-l’oeil painted walls, ceilings and columns. The chapel’s Second Empire interior resembles the Trinity Church in Paris, with white marble altars, red cherry woodwork and ceramic tiled floors. Located at the site where Samuel de Champlain founded North America’s first permanent French settlement in 1608, historic Place-Royale forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage district of Old Quebec. On the wings of a $380 million investment, the historic St.-Roch district has been revitalized into a vibrant neighborhood with plenty of boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
