Lonely Planet review
More than a hotel, the iconic Frontenac is one of Québec City's enduring symbols. Fresh off a 2014 makeover, its 611 rooms come in a dozen-plus categories. The coveted river-view rooms range in price from Deluxe units tucked under the 18th-floor eaves to the ultra-spacious Fairmont Gold Signature rooms, with concierge service, curved turret windows and vintage architectural details.
The hotel has over 2000 windows, a variety of elegant salons, bars and restaurants, and 12km of corridors lined with photos of famous guests including Alfred Hitchcock and Paul McCartney. Service is professional and staff are adept at handling the big crowds. While some guests enjoy connecting with a little slice of Québec City history, others feel the grand dame doesn’t quite live up to its storied reputation. Check the website for special deals, especially outside the peak summer and Winter Carnival seasons.
