Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Premier Hotel l'Aristocrate Quebec City
Great Hotel but Mis- leading Web site
A very good Hotel. The rooms are large and the beds are really comfy. The hotel is a good 10 minute drive from old Quebec. The restaurant is top notch but on the expensive side. If you are driving the directions on the web site are good.
We stayed at the hotel in late May and had chosen this hotel because the web site stated a free shuttle bus to old Quebec from May onwards. On arrival we were told the shuttle service only operates at week ends during May. We drove into Quebec city and were charged 5c per minute to park- beware!
Clean, Comfortable & Great Value
If you don't mind being a few miles away from the Old City, then I would recommend this lovely hotel. We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed this hotel very much. Clean and comfortable succinctly captures the hotel's standards. I've stayed at several other Best Westerns before in the USA, so trust me when I say that this hotel is the BEST Best Western I've stayed at. Indeed, I would venture to say that it shouldn't even be compared to any Best Westerns in the US. Yes, the beds are as comfortable as 4-star hotels. Yes, the bathroom is clean and well-maintained. Yes, the exercise room has complimentary bottled water. Yes, there is free internet in the lobby.
From the front desk staff to the room-keepers, everyone was friendly. The front desk personnel speak English pretty well, so if you have questions fire them away. As I mentioned before, the hotel is a short drive to the city center. We tried both local and highway routes and found either to be convenient; of course, driving locally you will see charming neighborhoods and locals on their bikes - it's about a 15-20 minute drive.
There is a restaurant in the hotel, which is suppose to be really good, but we did not try it. There's just so many other dining options in the Old City! There is a grocery store, a Wal-Mart like store, and a few fast food establishments within blocks from the hotel. The hotel is adjacent to the expressway, but is in a very quiet and safe area.
If you have a car or don't mind taking public transportation (also, I think the hotel offers a shuttle bus to/from the Old City during the summer), this is a great value for Quebec City. It's quiet, clean and comfortable. Plus, if you're from a larger city, you'll know that there's nothing like free parking!
Stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend. The best best western I have stayed at. Clean, classy room with a nice white duvet and pillows on the king size bed. Great restarants just down the road. Wonderful staff.We will definately return.
Based on other reviews, we chose to stay here Sept 2005. The front desk staff were bilingual, courteous, and helpful. Our room, #149, was exactly as requested: king, n/s, ground floor. Equipped with TV, internet, coffee & coffee maker, fridge, hair dryer, iron & ironing board. The A/C made an awful noise each time it shut down in a cycle, so we had to turn it off. The price was 1250 airmiles plus $2 room tax. There's a free shuttle to take you to Old Town. It leaves at 8AM and 10AM, returning at Noon and 5PM. The 4 star hotel restaurant looked pretty expensive so we decided to go across the street to Le Manoir du Spaghetti. The staff is bilingual and the food and service were adequate. However, it cost $60 for 2 plates of spaghetti and meatballs [no appy, salad, or dessert] and 375ml of wine. Wowzie!
This is an excellent choice if you plan to visit Quebec city. It is easy to get there from the highway. Our room was very big and clean. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Beakfast is served in the restaurant's hotel and it is simply breathtaking. It is a pity that we couldn't stay there more time.
The cleanest hotel I've ever seen
Nice hotel and conveniently-located for a quick stopover on the Ste-Foy side of the Pont du Quebec and Pont Pierre Laporte. Stayed in a room with 2 double beds on the second floor. Room was slightly on the small side but absolutely spotless - including beautiful white duvet covers. Unfortunately, the walls are on the slim side as I could hear the person in the room next to me snoring at 2am. The AC was nearly non-responsive as well.
I'd stay there again if I was road-tripping it across the country, but would find a more centrally-located spot if I were planning on visiting the tourist attractions in the greatest city in Canada. A great deal for $89.
Great Stay at L'Aristocrate
When you first drive up to the Best Western Hotel L'Aristocrate,
Quebec City (Ste-Foy area just west of downtown), Quebec, you are
impressed with the grounds and location. Our king room was very clean
with ample space. Housekeeping was excellent. Excellent location
near highway, shopping mall, banks, and excellent restaurants. Easy
drive to downtown and old Quebec. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Our business room included an excellent full breakfast. Tourism office
across the street. Highly recommend.
Great acces to town, and recently renovated also.
I was extremely pleased with the quality of the rooms and staff service towards my family and myself.
There rates are much to low for the quality that they offer so I would not be supprisd that one year from now this property will be out of my reach (even do the Director of Sales (Louis Delorme, was quite reasuring and confident that there room rates will not be exagerated in any neer futur.)
There beds were to die for as were the pillows.
Allbeit that the hotel is situated close to the bridges, I had a room situated in front of the hotel facing the bridges and we were not at all bothered by noise or vibration.
An interresting point is that the Travelodge Quebec is situated just across the street and is a sister hotel, the Aristocrate staff did not esitate to call on them for a bigger room for my mother in law AND AT NO EXTRA CHARGE.
Deffinitely will recommened and return to this hotel.
We're here on holiday for 4 nights (beginning Aug) and staying in a king size, non-smoking rm. Check-in was simple - and staff was friendly. One offered to bring up our luggage. Its a 2 story building with no elevators. The outside of the hotel looks classy. The neighborhood has a few other hotels and is in a good area. The parking is free. Room is large and is clean. We gave a $2 tip to the cleaning lady and she really kept it spotless with new sheets every night. Internet is free (I'm typing this from the room internet). There is a supermarket behind the hotel and that was convenient because we've a 3 yr old child and we dropped by at the market for milk, cheese and crossants (food and drink are very, very expensive in quebec with 15% tax). They have 3 very, very, very expensive restaurants whithin a few hundred mtrs of the hotel. Couldn't afford those but found one opposite hotel (Restaurant Ryna) thats like a diner. Menu is mostly pizza but has other items like parmigiana and good appetizers. Menu is in french but you should have no problems. Wiatresses speak some english. They have a small fridge in the rm. They change upto $50 US at the desk. Swimming pool is outdoor and looks clean (we haven't used it yet). The fitness room is very, very basic with 2-3 machines. They have a free shuttle from the hotel to old quebec (a few miles away). It leaves at 9:15 and 11:15 and picks you up 3 times a day for the ride back. Overall - a very good value for the money.
Travelling should always be this easy ...
If you are a first time visitor to Quebec City then stay in the Old Town. But if you want to explore the entire Quebec City area this hotel is a good bet.As a frequent traveller to Ste - Foy on business I find myself usually checking in at L'Aritocrate. I find it to be the best all round hotel on the Ste - Foy hotel strip. Access from the expressway is excellent, parking easy , the rooms are comfortable and well furnished and the hotel represents excellent value for money. You always come away saying to youself 'that was a good deal' The hotel also has a superb restaurant but the average tourist will find it pricey. Get the bed and breakfast package. You will not have better breakfast in more pleasant surroundings on your entire trip.

It's 10 am by the time I leave the house after speaking with friends in Australia and Scotland. Back in the city I head into the lower old town, the oldest part of the city, and then to Notre-Dame and the Church of the Holy Trinity. A pianist and male singer are practicing for an upcoming concert at Holy Trinity. They are both very good. I find a shady spot on top of the city wall and read my book while some street performances are going on ...

We started our tour in French Canada by visiting the old town of Quebec. There isn't a whole lot of parking bu the city is kind enough to offer RV parking in their lots. There was even one place that allowed overnight parking but it was $50 Canadian. We parked at the Dalhousie lot which we unexpectedly got a great deal at and it was in the heart of it all. We got there early and planned on being there into the night.

I also dropped in on Rob Somers (of Yellow trainers fame) yesterday at his lunchtime café in a very different part of town. The old town, where we were staying, is on top is a steep hill, overlooking the St. Laurent river, the opposite town, Levis, and ...
... for some dinner. Tom wanted something Oriental, so we stopped at Doyjon on the Rue St. Jean. This establishment advertises itself as specializing in Thai cuisine. I thought the food was o.k, but I’ve had better in other cities. I again thought that the portions were not commensurate with the price (perhaps I’d been spoiled at La Freres de la Cote). I’d probably not stop here again if I were in Quebec. But, my feelings may have been colored by the fact ...
