Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Palace Royal Quebec City
Do not miss this Hotel...I almost did
The Hotel palace royal was a great pick for our family of Four. We wanted a hotel with a indoor pool and very close to the old city. One block from the St. John's Gate is very close. It took about 3 weeks to decide which hotel I going to book after reading all the reviews here and checking out the prices. The Palace Royal does not show up on the big travel booking search engines and because of that I almost missed this place. We stayed August 16 thru the 21st. The hotel had a very nice pool that was warm and a hot tub that was about 96F so you could stay in it hours if you wanted. The pools last 45min every evening was reserved for adult swimming. And yes they asked the kids to leave at 9:15PM. Our room was a Queen Suite non garden/pool view. Hint every floor has a shared balcony that overlooks the pool...so if you do not want to spring for the extra $$$ for your own private one, you can still have a chance to use the one that is shared on each floor. All the staff was very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel and it was everything it was advertised. We were Very pleased and I am a picky hotel person.
Early Sept. Stay at Hotel Palace Royal
We stayed at the Hotel Palace Royal from 9/1-9/4 after staying at the Sofitel (terrific) in Montreal. Overall a decent hotel experience. The suites were great overlooking the pool. Plenty of room. If you like your natural light though, these rooms are not for you. Pool and workout facilities were terrific. This hotel is also close to the St. Jean gates, which is a perfect entrance into Old Quebec. The only complaint was that the hotel staff was rather inexperienced and less than friendly. Finally, if you are going to Canada, get ready to get taxed until it hurts(15%). Some of this is refundable, but no one on our trip was very helpful in explaining what taxes are eligible and how you actually get the refund. This was especially true at Hotel Palace Royal and lead to an unpleasant checkout. We ended up getting a small refund. Brush up on your French for this hotel!
Ask for a high floor that overlooks the walled city. THe views were terrific. Overall the hotel was excellent although they could have put towels in the exercise room instead of having to go to the pool for them. Exericising before the pool opened meant no towels.
Overall, A great place to stay!!!
My wife and I spent our Honeymoon in Quebec City from June 27 to July 2. We stayed at the Palace Royal. We were really impressed with this place. The front desk spoke very well in English and the Concerige was very helpfull. The hotel is so new. The pool was great and the indoor balconey suite was terrific to eat breakfast on in the morning. The location to the Vieux Quebec cannot be any better. The St.Jean gate is very close. Rue St.Jean has so many nice stores. We would stay at the Palace ROyal again. Look no further than this place. You'll be impressed.
Book this Hotel - You will thank yourself for it !!!!!!!
Palace Royal - the #1 place to stay !!!! Just got back from Quebec City and had a blast. Tired of staying in the same old B&B in Old Quebec and saw an ad for this hotel in my AAA book and took a chance... This is Quebec city's newest hotel - only 3 yrs. old and is in our opinion a 4 star (rated by AAA as 3) hotel. It is located in the cobblestone square just outside of the largest gate of the fortified wall opening to Old Quebec, across the street to Courtyard Hotel. It's has a French Chateau look and style, with furnishings from Louis XVI - Louis Philippe periods. For only $130 US a night, we had a beautiful spacious suite, 2 queens with French doors opening to an elegant, beautiful living room ...Breathtaking view of Chateau Frontenac and Rue St. Jean from our Parisian style windows. Loved the large indoor pool which has a 10 story? ceiling and is surrounded by private verandas of rooms all the way to the top.Spacious underground parking for only $12US per day. In Montreal, we stayed at the Ritz Carlton before driving up to Quebec City and I can honestly say that I think Palace Royal Hotel is nicer! You can't beat having "elegant and BRAND NEW" at the same time! You will be so glad you chose this hotel. It's beyond FABULEUX!!!!!
It's the best!
We've stayed at this hotel twice, and we are going back again for a third time during the Quebec Winter Carnival. We've stayed other places in Quebec and in other areas of Canada; this is the one we now keep going back to because you are indeed treated as royalty and special requests are accommodated. As for anyone who was displeased because the housekeeping staff doesn't speak French - I'd remind you that we are going to THEIR country. Bring a bilingual dictionary or contact the front desk - all of those personnel speak perfect English.
Exclusive for French speaking people
If you do not speak French, then you'd better choose another hotel. If you still want to stay here, then learn to speak French at least for the room service.
Very clean, confortable and hostile hotel. The best deal for the price.
I didnt give all stars because comparing to other hotels around the world that have all starts the royal isnt that amazing. But it is most certain a very good hotel. The amazing part is the pool, i felt like in the brazilian jungle.
Loved the Royal - felt like royalty!
Wonderful, romanitic, pool was amazing
It was awsome
Well my grade 8 class was excited when we heard that we were going to Quebec for our school trip last year. When we got there we saw La Palace Royal it was the best hotel any of us have ever seen. The people were great and they wern't mean when we made noise..... the rooms were always clean when we messed them up if I had the chance I would 100% stay there again.

It had more in the way of paintings in it, and for the most part ones with recognisable subjects too, which we appreciate in our artwork.
