The 4 Best Hotels in Quebec City for Sightseeing

Joanne Latimer | January 02, 2018

Conquests, colonial uprisings, religious icons—Quebec City has it all. History buffs love these hotels because they’re either part of history themselves or they’re close to the sightseeing hotspots. These are the best hotels in Quebec City's Old Town.


Hôtel Le Priori

Why it made the list

It’s oh, so Parisian! On a narrow pedestrian street lined with 300-year-old buildings, flower boxes and ivy, the Priori charms visitors with its European flair. Yet, the décor is modern, with an elevator, iPhone docking stations, and oversized flat screen TVs. Ask for a room facing the inner courtyard—better yet, book a suite. They’re enormous. A decadent breakfast is included with all rooms. For just $3, turn that breakfast into room service. Their restaurant is a hidden gem.

Auberge St-Antoine

Why it made the list

Where luxury and history collide—and the outcome is magic. The Auberge Saint-Antoine is the pride of Lower Town, just outside the fortifications. It’s part of the exclusive Relaise & Château network, so standards (and prices) are high. Tourists like the proximity to art galleries, antique stores, boutiques, historic sights, and 17th and 18th century architecture. Their restaurant is world-class, so be sure to make a reservation before you arrive.

Auberge Place d'Armes

Why it made the list

Inside Old Quebec, this auberge is a slice of history itself. The oldest wing of the inn goes back to 1640, while the “new” wing was built in 1853, housing politicians of the day, then the founder of Hold Renfrew luxury stores. It’s just steps from the Château Frontenac, the Grande Allée, the Plaines d’Abraham, and more.

Fairmont Le Château Frontenac Hotel

Why it made the list

A sightseeing destination in itself, the Château Frontenac attracts tourists who want to experience its grand public hallways and baronial architecture.
