... leading up and down - we are unsure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Safe to say everyone got their exercise for the day.
Tonight Beth cooked us dinner in the hostel kitchen - chicken fajitas. It was nice not having to eat out for once in a while. This is definitely one of the positives of hostel living.
We had apple pie from 'The Big Apple' which the others stopped at on their way to Montreal... no joke best apple pie I have ever had in my life (sorry Mum). I ...
Did another walking tour today saw the parliament area of Quebec, and one of the largest parks within Northern America, it's called battlefield park and was the site of major battles between the French and the British , we visited the citadel which is still and active military base and was designed by the French but re-enforced by the British ...
... as we are now in French Canada! The crepes here are excellent, thin and just like the ones we have in England. I’m not a big fan of the American style thick pancakes.
We wandered around and explored Quebec, as our bed was not ready yet, and really enjoyed the city as it gradually woke up! Jenny and I had a little rest on a park bench where due to my poor night of sleep on the train, I fell asleep! Jenny was a very good cushion although I ...
... the lower city! The restored houses lining Rue du Petit-Champlain are now home to bistros, art galleries and specialized handicraft boutiques (leather, jewellery, decorative arts, clothing, wood and more). All year-round, visitors are enchanted by the romantic European atmosphere of this quaint neighbourhood, site of the Quebec's first port, and can see here some of the colony's first houses.
We walked around the streets of the ...
... just driving around the countryside for a bit, plus an hour or so in Burlington with a pretty amazing burrito. A few weeks later, the same people plus Trent and Laura went on 4 day roadtrip to Halifax, Nova Scotia. That was awesome because I got to drive on the wrong side of the road haha. Very weird feeling, but so much fun to be on the road again after not driving for so long. The maritimes have quite a few oddballs in them. Very friendly oddballs, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Delta Quebec Quebec City
If this is the best hotel in Quebec, that's troublesome...
The Delta was ok. We got a good rate and were only staying for 2 nights. If we'd been staying any more than that, I would've moved. Rooms were small and clearly geared towards business people. Furniture was nicked, carpet was slightly damp, wallpaper peeling a little in our room. Bathroom had a strong mildew smell. Pool was teensy w/ too many people in it. Lifeguard very friendly though and kids had fun there (even though locker rooms had soaking wet gross puddles in them).
I wouldn't stay there again w/ kids. It is in a good location but the hotel itself was kind of depressing and I wasn't thrilled going back to it each night. But ok if you're on a budget and in a really good location w/ parking.
Good location/great price
This hotel was in a great location. We could walk to almost anything we wanted to do in Quebec City. The room was okay, but nothing special. For $139 a night Canadian, we were satisfied.
Fine Hotel near the Old City
I stayed at the Delta Quebec in mid-June 2004 and enjoyed the stay. The hotel has been refurbished recently and the public areas are quite attractive. I had a basic "Delta Room" and was very happy with it. The room was nicely decorated and had a great view of the Laurentian Mountains. Food in the Bistro restaurant was great!
Old Quebec is just a couple of blocks away and is well worth visiting. A little bit of Europe in North America!
Hotel Delta Quebec
My wife, 10-year old son, and I, just completed a five-day stay in Quebec City at the Delta Hotel on Rene-Levesque Boulevard. Our mini vacation, from June 19, 2004 to June 26th was so great, we did not want to leave. The Delta Quebec Hotel was fabulous and within walking distance to most major attractions (i.e. old town Quebec, the Citadelle, festivities surrounding the feast of St. Jean de Baptiste). The staff at the hotel were very accomodating and we give them a four-star rating. We did have our own means of transportation that enabled us to take in a lot of the sites not within walking distance from the hotel (Montmorency Park, St. Anne de Beaupre), but if you are looking for an excellent hotel property, with reasonable room rates and secure parking, within walking distance to all the significant landmarks, you can't go wrong with the Delta Quebec.
Delta Quebec was wonderful!
Delta Quebec was awesome! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We had a room on the 10 th floor over looking St Jean. Fabulous views! 10 minute walk to the Old city, excellent staff, excellent service. I highly recommend it.
I wish that someone had notifyed me,that the Radasson Quebec Hotel had changed it name to the Delta. we thought we were lost and a little inconvenient.People went out of their way to help us,they are very nice and friendly. Quebec City is beautiful, great history lots to see,very lively very europeon.We loved it ,We will go again.
We enjoyed our stay here
This hotel is now the Delta. In my opinion, this is the perfect location. It is a block away from Vieu Quebec, a block away from Grand Allee, right across from the Parliament buildings. Rooms were nice and clean. We didn't get the best service, staff just didn't seem very happy/friendly in general. Pool and hot tub were great. A couple of restaurants close by to check out are; Au Petit Coin Breton on Rue St.
Jean (Vieu Quebec) and the L'Oueferie on Autoroute Dufferin
In my opinion this is a totally average hotel. When we checked in we asked for non smoking rooms. They gave us smoking. We had to then go down to reception and get new rooms. Conceirage said the new rooms won't have as nice a view as the smoking ones! (Excuse me, we don't want smoking rooms) The view was much better in the new rooms. Called a bell hop (who never came) to get our luggage. Finally got our rooms.
One morning we decided to have breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Two of four of us had the buffet the others had nothing. We got charged for 4 buffets! That was corrected. The buffet was very average, nothing spectacular about it. Wouldn't eat there again.
Clean and average
Our stay was pleasant. This is an average hotel.It is worth a look if you get a bargain rate. On the plus side, the heated outdoor pool was fun. A note of interest - a sign posted in the elevator stated that this hotel will become part of the Delta Hotel Chain in July. The hotel has a great location. It's directly Parliament, just outside the walls and a very short walk to just about anywhere.
The Best Hotel in Quebec!!!
This hotel was the best in Quebec! The rooms were really nice as well as the bathroom- one of the nicest hotels i've been to and I have been to a lot of hotels. The lobby was really cool with fountains and marble. The pool was very big and had plenty of chairs and the bar nearby was great because they had people waiting on you. The rooms were spacious and were very nice as they were just renovated. The bathroom ws also very big and was extremely nice! All in all, this hotel was outstanding. It is our permament hotel in Quebec. Don't get discouraged becuase you aren't staying at the Chateau Frotenac; at the Radisson you pay little and get a lot! I have noting but good to say about this hotel and think that this is the best hotel in Quebec City!!
