Travel Blogs from Quebec City
This morning we got up super early, at 4AM to catch a bus to Quebec City. We left our big bag in the hotel bag storage as we are returning here in two days, so felt liberated walking to the bus station with only two small bags. In Quebec we were greeted with streets absolutely covered inthick layers of snow, 1 metre high in places! The weather was …
... for bird and goose watching. We saw thousands and thousand of geese, preparing themselves for the long journey to the warm countries. The entrance fee was 5 CAD.
Québec City is certainly worth a visit when you're in Canada. It's charming, has a lot to offer and it's interesting to see the difference not only in language but also in culture to the English-speaking part of the country.
... for the next. The Royal 22nd Regiment is still stationed there today and military ceremonies are held during summer.
Nice gentle walk down the hill to Avenue Honore Mercier in the center of the avenue across from the Parliament Building stands the Tourny Fountain very impressive took lots of photos and videos as we went around. We were very lucky and missed all the tourist buses as we walked around the Citadelle.
... the road expectantly, monitoring his text, mumbling something over and over over and over, for a hour or so, gave me some concern. All the passengers in the front 6 rows around this guy were older women or women with children.The driver was way down in the seat a small elderly guy.
So I gave Barbara my long grey scarf and told her to take it back to her seat directly behind this guy. I told her to wrap one end around one hand and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Champlain Hotel Quebec City
My husband and I recently concluded a wonderful five day vacation in Quebec City. It was our first visit to Quebec City and I agree with other reviewers that if you love to vacation in Europe (as we do) you will love staying and dining within the walls of "Vieux Quebec" old Quebec City. We followed the many positive trip advisor forum recommendations and stayed at The Hotel Le Champlain and we were very happy that we did. The hotel owner , Michele and her staff were wonderful. As well as making us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived, they also provided excellent restaurant and attraction recommendations. They made every effort to make sure that we had a great stay at their hotel and that we enjoyed our time in their great city. We would absolutely stay at Le Champlain again!
Cosy room, excellent breafast
This hotel was a fantastic find for our congress. The welcome was friendly and informative, Claudia at the front desk, showed us the lobby and the marvellous breakfast room and gave us a map and showed us where and how to get to all the places we wanted to go. The room was cool, plasma TV, fire place and spa bath, 2 bathrobes and huge towels, etc. Location in Old Quebec was excellent. Everything we wanted to see was a few steps away from the hotel and 5 minutes walking from the congress center. Breakfast was included in the rate and was a " buffet" of breads, juice, jams, pate, cheese, fruit, cereal and also cooked eggs. The only criticism we could come up with
was.... that we could have two package of oil for the spa bath...!Definitely recommended.
A very nice hotel! The rooms were a great size and wonderfully decorated. The bathrooms were also very well done. The hotel was perfectly located within Québec city and within a very short distance of restaurants and shops dowton.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Québec city, whether for business or pleasure.
Top notch! Just spent two nights at this cozy, intimate boutique hotel. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful with sightseeing and reservations. Our room was large in fact huge... with comfortable and stylish furniture and furnishings, the bathroom sink incredible... The view of the Chateau Frontenac was beautiful. We appreciated the continental buffet (try the Belgian waffles....) and 24 hr coffee bar plus the cookies and the computer with ethernet. The library with the fireplace is so inviting the one night we stayed there all evening chatting with other guests. The hotel is located within the walls a few steps away from shops and restaurants, had wonderful dinners at ``Le Pain Beni``, 2 minutes walking and Panache, in the lower town and we would highly recommend both(Panache's dining room is a beautiful space). We will be back! Claude.

What another incredible find! This hotel delivers the perfect location when visiting Old Quebec...situated on a quiet street in the Upper Town, it is a short walk to the quaint streets of the Lower Town as well as upbeat restaurants and shops of Rue St Jean just beyond the old fortified walls. My visit happened to be during winter Carnival so the location proved even more convenient in trodding up and down the hills of Quebec City.
I was visiting family in Québec during the Xmas Holidays and we took a night off from the family and stayed at Le Champlain. We had a FANTASTIC experience!!!
The Champlain is a Art Deco boutique hotel located in the heart of Old Quebec.
Don't be deterred by the boring exterior. This hotel has been renovated to a very high standard, in the style of the Kimpton Group of hotels. Luxurious bathrooms, fabulous soft furnishings, comfortable bed with superb linens, Breakfast is served in the adjoining old house. This has been sympathetically restored and features Phillip Stark ghost dining chairs, excellent breakfast. Comfort, an excellent locatation and attentive service make this a fantastic hotel.
