... a passionate and excellent guide. For 2 hours he explained the Battle of Abraham, when the english won over the french and very interestingly explained how Quebec was populated. We all left the tour knowing a lot more about Quebec.
Weather is a lot colder than we have become accustomed, very windy and it definitely had a chill to it so out came the scarves and beanies, although with all the walking did get rather warm.
We stopped at La Petit Cochon Dingue for ...
The past few weeks have been pretty busy!
At the end of October, I presented at the Alberta Parks and Recreation Association/International Federation of Parks and Recreation Administration conference in Lake Louise, Alberta. The weather was positively tropical and a great break from the frigid temps of Yellowknife! I flew down and spent one night at my friend Michael's place in Calgary before heading to Lake Louise. In Lake Louise, I had a great ...
... the National Assembly (the Parliament building of Quebec) are solely in French, as are all the display boards inside the building. In remote parts of eastern Canada we always found the signs in both English and French, in remote parts of France I have found signs in both English and French. So I cannot understand why the government of Quebec have refused to put signs in both languages? I can only assume it is a childish attitude that makes me feel ...

I sang sad rain songs and cry out my misery.
Since with the rain no one can tell anyway.
I never ever yearned for someone so so much before. I can't wait to see V again.
Finally found my way home. I was still crying. Nico came to me wondering what was happening.
I went to have a hot shower, still sobbing. But I remember V wants me to be strong. I must stay strong. I ...
... giant slide on the tube. There were three runs and on each one you could come down a different way. I opted for the one you come straight down on although Nick and the girls like the ones that they twirled and spun you around as you went down.
Dog sledding was an amazing experience for the girls. They got to steer and ride their own sled. Emily opted to sit in the sled which meant Brittany was the driver and she steered the sled. She did a fantastic job as you have to stand ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Germain-Dominion Quebec City
This hotel is the best
This hotel was wonderful. My husband and I stayed here during the Winter Carnival. Our room was so nice and cozy to come back to after the cold activities outside. The bed was great and the staff were really nice. I would highly reccommend this hotel to anyone coming to Quebec.
This hotel as well as the one in Montreal is absolutely fabulous! The staff, service and the ammneties are first rate! I would recommend this hotel to anybody looking to stay in Quebec on business or pleasure
The warm, friendly staff of this hotel did not miss a beat in providing the most comfortable, welcoming stay we've ever experienced in a hotel.
We felt more as if we were staying with friends than in a commercial property. The Concierge, Claud Levoie, cosseted and pampered us our entire stay with his kindness and generosity of spirit - as well as his wealth of information. We will not consider another property in Quebec City as long as Hotel Dominion 1912 is available to us!
I think it was worth splurging on the price. The place had a peaceful feel to it. Great location, just seconds away from very quaint and pleasant streets for walking, and quiet. Great restaurants nearby.
Perfect little gem of a city hotel
We stayed at the Dominion 1912 for three days in late July, 2003. I had read the reviews and was not disappointed in what we found. We are cyclists and they took our bikes and parked them in a safe spot and cheerfully brought them out when we needed them. (Quebec city is a wonder biking city) They refused a tip for parking the car and anything to do with the bikes. The room was luxurious and the bed was the most comfortable I had ever slept in a hotel. If you like the Laura Ashley frou frou look you would not like the decor, but it was very sophisticated but warm, and quite comfortable. The staff was most gracious and welcoming at every turn with restaurant recommendations and the like. We loved Quebec City! And the food was awesome as well.
Nice, but not fabulous
This hotel was quite nice, and overall it was a pleasant experience, but from all the fabulous reviews I'd read, I expected better. The lobby was nice - cozy but modern, and the service was very friendly, but the room was kind of stark. The ceiling was painted dark brown and the decor was ultra modern. Not too inviting. Also, we wanted the trip to be special, so we reserved the best room they had which promised a great view of the water. We got a view of mostly industrial looking buildings with glimpses of water in between.
Hotel Dominion is the most wonderful little hotel imaginable!
Charming,inviting, luxurious - a welcome retreat from the world. The staff are unbelievable! They care for you as if you are the most important person in the world. No detail is too small to be overlooked, and any need you express is taken care of. Claude Lavoie, concierge at the hotel, is a master of his profession, as well as a most warm, caring individual. Don't hesitate to ask for restaurant recommendations; there are several excellent ones a one- or two-minute walk from the hotel. This is the most romantic of hotels in a very romantic city.
We stayed at the Hotel Dominion for our honeymoon last summer. It was absolutely lovely!
Staying at the Hotel Dominion was one of the best hotel experiences I ever had. From the moment we arrived we were given personalized service. We were given a quick tour of the hotel and all amenities were explained to us. The concierge, Marie-France, was always willing and able to provide dinner recommendations and actually set up our first meal. She also gave us a rundown of the city and suggested areas that we visit.
This little gem of a boutique hotel was the perfect place for a romantic, luxurious, pampered few days. The hotel is operated by the St. Germain group who apparently specialize in small European style ambiance in Canadian locations. This particular hotel is a refurbished bank warehouse in the Basse-Ville part of Quebec City. It's perfectly situated for enjoying many small wonderful restaurants nearby as well as wandering the quaint shops along Rue St. Jacques Cartier. The famous Chateau Frontenac and all of its surroundings are perched just a few (but very steep) steps awy.
