Quebec Winter Carnival-where to stay/eat?

Any hotel and restaurant recommedations on where to stay in Quebec City for the Winter Carnival would be greatly appreciated.
Thinking about Hotel Dominion, Delta, Hilton, etc. Has anyone stayed in any of these hotels? Fairmont Chateau Fronteac (sp?) way over priced! Thanks!

Dominion 1912 is a great hotel. I stayed there (again) last month.

It is not paralyzingly hip, just chic, well designed, well run, well situated. Lovely breakfasts. Fine staff. Many nice touches.

Some bits are getting a tad worn (occasional scuffed paint) but I think that just shows how many people love staying there....

One touch I will mention: in your bathroom, the water glasses have the room-number etched into them. I liked that so much that we had glasses similarly etched for our new country place.

Gail: Highly recommend the Auberge St. Antoine...ultra modern, fab design...get a room overlooking the St. L..far better than the stodgy old Frontenac...priced at below $150 Canadian...in the Lower Village...

Tedgale...read your post on another thread...No, No...not too late in life..I did the bulk of my traveling after age 50..now 77, wife 68..been all over this planet...go to it , kids!! Travel is a passion, young or old.

I really liked the cozy Quebec-fare restaurant Aux Anciens Canadiens near the Chateau Frontenac.

I second AuntAnnie's restaurant suggestion. We ate at this charming little place last spring, enjoying a dish of salmon in a puff pastry with a wine/cream sauce. Their maple syrup pie was delicious too. Very good food for a very affordable price.
