... that tells the city's 400year history through the seasons. From here Beth left us to our own devices. We wandered around the cobblestone streets of the quaint little old town for a while before it started to rain rather heavy. Blake and I decided that we weren't going to go whale watching the next day so we had plenty of time to look around then. We navigated our way back to the hostel using nothing but our memories to guide us.

Historical Traveler Reviews Quebec City Marriott Downtown
Most relaxing experience I've ever had...
Staff are absolutely wonderful; location is excellent by far (Old Quebec City are your doorstep). Try the excellent Italian restaurant down the street (Portofino's I think) - probably some of the best food I've ever ate. Great experience, would definately go back.
Stop Looking, Stay here
Excellent location with excellent facilities. Stop looking for other places, this is the best value for money. You will not be disappointed.
Excellent Hotel in a Great Location!
This is an excellent hotel in a location very convenient to Old Quebec. One of the gates is directly across the street. The service and attention from all of the staff was outstanding from the moment we arrived and this continued throughout our 3 day stay. Our room with two queen beds was large, with a large bathroom, and very quiet. Everything was also very clean. Our view was limited but we knew this when we made our reservation. Some of the rooms have a city view overlooking Old Quebec, but at higher rates. Parking is directly across the street in a large enclosed parking deck making access to the car very easy. If Manuel is working, ask him for restaurant suggestions. He gave us suggestions for 7 restaurants ranging from a very popular Italian restaurant, to a small unique restaurant on a side street, to several upscale and fancy French restaurants. We ate at 3 of these, Portofino, La Cuenta, and La Cremaillere and all were excellent. A nice feature is a business center, including a computer for guests to use. The hotel also has a fitness center, hot tub and guest laundry on the lower level. We definitely would stay here again.
Perfect all around
Thie hotel is just step away from the Old Quebec City, could not have asked for a better location. We had a suite, which was very spacious, clean and modern ( no comparison to the courtyard in Montreal) even the sleep sofa was comfortable. I would not hesitate staying here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Courtyard Marriot Hotel Quebec City Downtown
We arrived at the hotel and had to wait for five hours before we got our room. The room was very clean and neat, the staff told us to go to town and wait fortunately the town fair was going on so the wait wasn:t that bad. Tried Azara Thai restaurant food was terrible and expensive, service was mediocre, but definately stay away from Cafe Paris in the main restaurant area, recicled bread and so far the worse food we had.
Our stay at the hotel was very confortable and pleasant, we definately recomend this hotel.
Stayed here over the 4th of July long weekend. Very nice hotel. Staff very courteous. Took advantage of the Marriott lowest price guarantee which saved us an additional 20% off Expedia's already low rate for the City view. View is of St. Jean's gate and Rue St. Jean. Easy walking to everywhere. Room was decorated nicely, a bit on the small side but still okay. Very clean and new. I would not hestitate to stay here again.
Nice Boutique Hotel at the Old City's gate
I stayed at the Couryard by Marriott in mid-June 2004 and was generally happy with my stay.
The hotel is almost new. It is relatively small but the rooms are of a good size and are well decorated. The buffet breakfast in the on site restaurant is good.
The hotel is just outside of St. Jean's Gate so Old Quebec is literally within a one minute walk.
Make sure to ask for a room with a street view as some rooms face the wall of the next building.
I had problems with my reservation request. The room type requested was guaranteed by Marriott Reservations by was unavailable on arrival. Staff provided breakfast vouchers and a cot but we had to wait until the next day for our guaranteed room type. Not like Marriott at all.
The Courtyard Hotel in Quebec City was one of the nicest hotels at which I have ever stayed and the price was very reasonable. From the moment we walked in the front door, we were treated like first class! The doorman was most gracious, and the people at the front desk greeted us warmly. Our luggage was whisked away to our room before we even knew it! Every request that we made during the two nights that we stayed there were immediately attended to.
Because the hotel is on a gentle hill just outside the ancient wall of the old city, we had a great view from our 3rd floor windows. We could see the St. Lawrence River, the mountains, the walls of the city, old churches, and Frontenac all from our windows. At night, the buildings were lit up beautifully. The hotel was right across the street from a theater so we could see many people exiting, but we didn't hear any street noise. Our room was lovely and spacious. Great shower and a wonderful chair and matching ottomon that could really accomodate two. And of course, the fresh cookies and juice in the lobby were delightful. There were two bakeries within a half a block from the hotel, too. Life was good at the Courtyard in Quebec City. We will definitely go back there again and stay there again. More than once I said that I couldn't wait to get back to the States to write to TripAdviser about this lovely hotel (and the others that I stayed at during this trip, too.) Thanks, TripAdviser, I made the best choices about this trip because of the advice that I received from other travelers. It was invaluable!
Mini-Marriott in Quebec City
Excellent Location, Nice Room, Excellent Staff. I would not hesitate to stay again.
Great Location - Friendly Staff!
We came upon the Courtyard completely by chance, having driven to Quebec from Montreal and arriving in the city knowing nothing about it.
The Courtyard was the first hotel we saw so we took a chance. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the location was excellent, right outside a gate to the Old City. The valet took our car away and we didn't need it again until we had to come home, everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. If you're like me and get stressed out by driving around strange cities, this is definitely a big plus. The room was very clean and well appointed, I'm not sure how old this hotel is but it looks brand new. We had a lovely view of the city from our window as well. If I return to Quebec some day, and I hope to, I'd defintely stay here again.
