Built in 1870, this is the oldest operating hotel in Québec City; half of its rooms have excellent views over Old Québec, and the others overlook a courtyard. The interior has been refurbished in art deco and art nouveau styles, most notably in the public areas, and although some guest rooms have period touches, others are more modern. The Le Charles-Baillairgé Restaurant serves traditional fare with an emphasis on local ingredients. Weekly jazz nights with live performances
draw a lively crowd.
