The Best Hotels in Quebec City for Incredible Views

Joanne Latimer | January 02, 2018

Quebec City has some spectacular vistas—from the mighty river to historic battlefields and chateaus. These hotels are well situated, with windows on the best views in town.


Hôtel Manoir des Remparts

Why it made the list

An unexpected perk in this otherwise basic hotel is the view of the St. Lawrence River from the rooftop terrace. It feels like you’re sailing on the river. More like a hostel than a hotel, the Remparts isn’t known for luxury. However, you’ll forget the frumpy furniture when you gaze upon the port, docks and magnificent river rapids. Another perk is the family who own and operate the hotel. They’re welcoming and kind.

With its basic furnishings and reasonable rates, this servic Read More


Fairmont Le Château Frontenac Hotel

Why it made the list

The Grand Dame of Quebec hotels, perched on a precipice inside the city’s fortified walls. Most rooms have either a city view or river view, but every room on the Fairmont Gold floors (12 to17th floor) boasts sight lines on Old Quebec or the St. Lawrence River. You can also expect dramatic views of the river while dining at Champlain Restaurant. When booking, be sure to ask for a renovated room. Sadly, the only thing you can’t see is the Château Frontenac itself—a sight to behold, day or night.

Hilton Québec

Why it made the list

While not all rooms at the Hilton have views, rooms above the 5th floor certainly do. The hotel’s Upper Town location provides a sweeping vista of either the St. Lawrence River and Old Quebec, Parliament or the distant ski hills in Charlevoix. Guest staying in suites have access to the VIP Lounge on 23rd floor, the highest level, for the most dramatic scenery. The indoor/outdoor rooftop pool also affords great views of the city skyline.

Hôtel Loews Le Concorde

Why it made the list

Soaring above the Grande Allée, the hotel inside this asymmetric high rise (b. 1974) has grand views. Starting on the 14th floor, rooms have expansive windows to take in Old Quebec, the Plains of Abraham, the Château Frontenac and the St. Lawrence River. On the other side of the hotel, there are views onto the glittery night-life of St. Foy and the Quebec Bridge. Swimmers in the hotel’s new heated pool look out over the Plains of Abraham, while diners in the hotel’s revolving roof-top restaurant take in a 360-degree panorama.

Hôtel Château Bellevue

Why it made the list

The hotel’s name is a ringing endorsement—belle view. Guests actually have a choice of views. Rooms either look over the St. Lawrence River, the Parc des Gouverneurs or the charming streets of fortified Old Quebec. This 1898 hotel occupies four stately heritage houses with the same green roofing and residential façade—a view onto itself. The streetscape and facing park are particularly magical when covered in snow.
