Historical Traveler Reviews Le Champlain Hotel Quebec City
Le Champlain was awesome!
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.
Le Champlain Hotel
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.
30 year old couple with a 7 month old baby from Calgary.
The customer sevice was second to none.
The hotel and rooms were modern and immaculate.
For around $100 a night including and excellent breakfast, unlimited internet use, refridgerator in room, parking, microwave, tea, coffee, and hot chocolate 24hrs inc. sitting room with fire place and staff (everyone of them) that will go out of there way to help with directions, food choices and translation. This is by far the best value for money we found in all of Quebec, not to mention it is right in the heart of the Old City, walking distance to all of the major sites, bars, bistros and shopping.
The room was big enough to set up our play pen for the baby to sleep undisturbed while we ate,watched TV etc.
The price may be higher in the high season but you are not going to find better bang for your buck in Quebec City.
Another rare find that you really want to keep a secret
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.
The pictures found on their website are very, very true to life so you will not be disappointed. The furnishings and bath were all well maintained and cleaned impeccably. Don't be fooled by the seemingly very firm bed...I slept like a baby after some relaxing time in the jacuzzi in my junior suite (although the fireplace is actually an electric forced air heating unit).
The front desk staff also was quite welcoming during my entire stay and I noticed they also offered any suggestions (in either French or English dependent upon the guest) to anyone's inquiries about Quebec City.
The combination of staff, comfort, and location made for an exceptional experience!
Fantastic property - would reccommend to any one!
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!!!
Great location; only minutes from Chateau Frontenac; the room was spacious, nicely decorated, and the bed SUPER comfortable.
Some people are mentioning in the reviews that the breakfast is not meeting their expectations: I would say it is a great continental breakfast (not full American buffet). I also really liked to be able to bring my croissant up to my room.
This hotel does not have his own parking but do not worry about this. There is a great parking facility only 300 feets from the hotels.
We want to mention that the hotel does have a parking lot but not for all the rooms, so if you don't reserve a parking space when you make your room reservation, we can't garantee that a parking will be available. You are right, there is a city parking lot near the hotel for those we can't accomodate. To the pleasure of having you again at Hotel Champlain.

We will be back!
The Champlain is a Art Deco boutique hotel located in the heart of Old Quebec.
The outside of the hotel is brick and is a lot different of the other buildings
in this street. However, the inside is contemporary making an enjoyable
contrast in such a historic town.
Quebec is known as a walking city and almost everything is within walking
distance from this hotel. The Parliament house, Grande-Allee and the Convention Center is in one direction and the Chateau Frontenac and the lowertown in another. At this time of the year you can skate at Place d'Youville a five minutes walk from the hotel. Shopping, giftshops and I think all... the restaurants are nearby. You should try the Conti Caffe and the Pain Beni...
The decor of this hotel is Art Deco. Our top floor room allowed us a terrific people view on the mountains and the Saint-Lawrence river.
Our room was huge with a spa(The bath oil is divine!!) and a fireplace, the bed was wonderfully comfortable and those linens... I feeled so at home in my so soft bathrobe but my husband's one was incredible it matched the hotel colors... We had also a reading corner in the room.
The continental breakfast which includes croissants, bagels, cream cheese,all kinds of bread, waffles, fruits, yogourt, juices,"cretons" a kind of pâte is served in a so nice room decorated with Philippe Stark chairs. All day long in the library,
coffee, tea and hot chocolate but around four o'clock ... hot cookies... try the oatmeal and raisins : fabulous
Last but not least, the parking lot in on site.
I would definitely stay at the Champlain Hotel again.
Friend of travel, Ca
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.

After a decent night sleep and a good breakfast, the day started smoothly. Legs felt good and weather was nice. About an hour and a bit on the way my rear tire got flat..... stop under a tree resulted in mosquitoes attack. Gravel parking space seemed the best place to replace my tire. Luckily the rest of the day went smoothly. Stopped for lunch in Portneuf, nice terras but no water front, ...
... I ended up following the wall around the upper city to the citadel and then back along the Governors promenade. This was a very pretty walk the fall colour are really starting to come out here now. I don't think the photos do justice to the landscape here. For lunch I walked back to the ship, had some soup, fish and veggies. Then I went back out and explored some more. This time I walked along the waters edge ...
... too far and too little in advance. Do I turn up to a place with only one night booked, and realise I need more hoping the hostel isn't fully booked? Stuff like that. This done I headed to the bus station to pick up a ticket to Montreal. $55 for three hours! No, not my day at all. In the evening I joined a group organized by the hostel to go down to walk downtown to check out a free showing of Cirque du Soleil. I'm not sure if ...

On the way back to Montreal, we saw these funny lights in the sky. We think it was probably Aurora Borealis, but not very bright or colourful, still intriguing though!
We missed a turn on the way back into Montreal and had to backtrack a little. Then ended up going the wrong ...

The one thing that I'm worry the most is the fact that I'm not the kind of person who talks a lot and goes to see everyone. I'm far away from this and I know it could be a problem. How to make friends and feel home when you don't know people around you? So I think it will be my big challenge during these 4 weeks. And ...
