Fairmont Le Château Frontenac Hotel Review

In this landmark building, the public rooms—from the intimate piano bar to the 700-seat ballroom reminiscent of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles—are all opulent; guest rooms are just as elegantly furnished, like mini châteaux, with gold and green touches. This hotel is a tourist attraction in its own right, so the lobby can be quite busy. Reserve well in advance, especially for late June to mid-October. The hotel's chef, Stéphane Modat, is overhauling the flagship restaurant, Le Champlain, which at this writing is due to reopen in late 2013.
