... how the architect Eugène-Étienne Taché was not only the originator of Quebec's motto Je me souviens, but also incorporated this as a theme throughout his design for the building.
A short walk down the hill and past the Ice Palace of Bonhomme Carnaval brought us inside the city walls into Old Quebec. We walked to the Citadelle, where we had a tour.
Another relatively short but hectic walk brought us ...
... colour sugar maples. Richard has now changed the GPS to our Quebec address as once we get to Trois-Riviers we are back on Hwy 40 East to Quebec. It is a pleasant drive passing the forrest, farmlands and cattle. There has been a lot of semi trailers on Hwy 20 with weighing stations along the way on all the highways. When we changed to Hwy 55 East we hit our first major road contructions to the first bridge then in the distance we could see a massive ...
... coming Quebec, to use my rusty french hahaha.
OK got off 81, board 84 and got off at downtown, board 801 and finally Le Vieux Quebec.
Beautiful place with lots of castle like buildings.
Very romantic but without V, the place seems to lack something.
Walked down the street, I am so coooooold.

... between the city wall and the cliff built in the 1960s. The walk allowed impressive views of the river and docks below and the wall and chateau Frontenac above. Upon reaching the end of the boardwalk (and climbing a significant number of stairs) we found ourselves at the old city citadel. The citadel, a massive double walled, star shaped fortress was built by the British between 1820 and 1831 to protect themselves against the newly independent United States. It was the ...
Definitely a fan of two days in this port city! First I'll say we slept for 10 hours straight in our inside room. If you happen to be struggling with insomnia I suggest you book an inside room cruise. Wow, quiet, dark, warm and this was before we've left port so we haven't added the rocking factor yet. Oh man, we're gonna be sooo rested when we get home! That's not to say I don't miss a balcony, but this isn't all bad for sure. Back to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Clos St-Louis Quebec City
I can't say enough good things about this hotel.
The Best Ever!
My husband and I were only planning on staying one night in Quebec City but as soon as we walked in the door to the hotel, I said "There is no way we can only stay one night". The door to our room was open and the concierge, Paul, was awaiting our arrival! Never have I experienced such personal service or friendly staff in a hotel. Even the owner of the hotel served up coffee in the morning! The impecable service wasn't enough..the hotel and rooms were beautifully decorated. I can't wait to refer the hotel to a friend so that they can experience the same wonderful vacation. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Final note: Its also very close to most sights, all within walking distance.
Sending all my friends!
I scoured the Internet for hours before deciding on the Le Clos Saint-Louis for our four-day trip to Quebec City. What a find! The Saint-Louis is a small, quiet hotel -- just the place for a romantic getaway! It is beautiful and clean, and the location is perfect for seeing the wonderful sights of Quebec. Best of all, the people who work at the Saint-Louis are friendly and helpful, especially Paul, the concierge. My husband and I visited the Saint-Louis with another couple, and all of us would return in a heartbeat. Thanks to everyone at the Hotel Le Clos Saint-Louis for their impeccable hospitality and to Trip Advisor for helping me to find this gem.
A wonderful place to stay!
We stayed at the Hotel Le Clos St-Louis for three nights. It was a wonderful experience. The hotel is small, only 18 rooms, but so beautiful. The hotel is perfectly located for wandering through Old Quebec. We found the hotel through recommendations through Trip Adviser, and then went directly to their website. We were able to view each room and chose accordingly. Our room was on the main floor and was called the Mary Robinson. It was lovely. We were served a delicious breakfast each day prepared by the owner of the Hotel. We would definitely recommend this hotel and plan to stay there again the next time we visit Quebec City.
That's where we got engaged :-)
Room 19, the prettiest room I've ever seen, with the four-post bed, high ceiling...
We keep the most lovely memories of this hotel, and we will certainly go back one day :-)
My wife and I just returned from four nights at this wonderful hotel and it is hard to imagine there being a better option in Vieux Quebec. The hotel is small which allows a chance to have true interaction with the owner(a truly lovely woman) and the staff(her son Luc was a great help). You really feel as though you are visiting friends and not just staying at a hotel. They will help you plan anything you need. The rooms are beautiful, antique but with all the modern conveniences that you need. The breakfasts were a pleasant surprise in that they are advertised as being continental yet each morning there was a hot dish. We took a tour of the Chateau Frontenac and though lovely it did not come anywhere near the warmth or beauty of Le Clos St. Louis despite the fact that their cheapest room is considerably more expensive than the most expensive room at Le Clos St. Louis. We travel extensively and this is a real winner!
Lovely hotel, Victorian Hotel
The elegant style and spacious victorian hotel is the best choice for business or romantic vacantion. Near of all the services ans old town. It's very good for the ratio quality- price. I love this hotel and the service.
Read the conditions
I had to cancel my trip, and was assessed a 35.00 fee for doing so, although they would not tell me if they re-booked the room. I thought double booking was against the law. Oh well, be prepared.
We stayed at Le Clos on June 21st, 2003 and we liked it very much. It's an old Victorian building, decorated in that style but completely refurbished and only for $165 incl. breakfast. The rate was lower than usual, partly because of the lack of American tourists (Iraq war).

Great little hotel for the non-smoker
My husband and I stayed at the hotel in mid-October, and we were very pleased with our accommodations. There are different levels of rooms, with different amenities and prices, and we did stay in the top level of room, but we were not disappointed. The room was a bit small, but nicely furnished in a romantic, Victorian style, and the bathroom had a whirlpool tub. Breakfast is included in the price, and it was an acceptable continental-style spread. We were particularly pleased to find a non-smoking hotel in Quebec City. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and helped us make dinner reservations on a busy Saturday night, which we appreciated!
