TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Chateau Laurier Quebec City
A very good location, just outside the gate and next to several trendy restaurants. We walked all over Vieux Quebec from our hotel. The room was nice and spacious. We were able to rent a car for a day trip to Montreal right in the lobby--so easy. All-in-all, worked out very well, and I would recommend this hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Chateau Laurier Quebec City
The wife and I stayed at the Laurier over our wedding anniversary weekend for 2 nights. Booked the superior room with bath and fireplace, based upon recommendations here. I will concur that it is well worth the extra money! It was a 3rd floor corner room, with 2 big windows and was HUGE! There are sliding doors where the hottub is that look into the rest of the room, so you can enjoy the wood burning fire while soaking in the tub. Breakfast was included in our rate ($145USD per night), and was a great buffet. The staff was very nice, and our room was spotless both days. Highly recommend this hotel. Great location (just a block from the old town wall)...free valet parking is a plus too. Also recommend the Italian restaurant Rivoli, right around the corner on Grand Allee.
I stayed two nights at the Laurier for my anniversary and it was wonderful! Here's why:
(1) Location: so easy to get to off the highway, right off Grand Allee (10 or so great restaurants all in a row), and a somersault away from the old city's gate. (2) Service: I don't speak a speck of French, and the valets/receptionists were so kind to accomodate. (3) Room Quality: The first night we stayed in a $70US room with a queen sized bed, and the room was very beautiful and clean. The second night we upgraded to the $140/US room with a king sized bed, fireplace and whirlpool. If you are staying with the one you love, please, please get this room. I promise you, it's worth every penny. (4) Value: Just check out the list of what's included... in the larger rooms you have a fridge, fireplace, tv, desk, high-quality cd player, huge bathroom, free paper, internet hookup, coffee, etc. and if you qualify, you can get certain taxes refunded to you (ask about this, and save your receipt).
I reccomend this hotel to anyone I meet. Don't hesitate to make a reservation.
My sweetheart and I fell in love with Quebec City and each other, thanks in LARGE part to a wonderful stay at Chateau Hotel Laurier. I paid extra for a suite, which included a beautiful two person jacuzzi tub AND a wood burning fireplace. The room itself was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. The CD player was a nice touch (bring your own CDs) and the bar fridge is ideal for chilling wine to enjoy in front of the fire. I didn't see the other rooms but would definitely recommend booking a suite for a romantic getaway in gorgeous Quebec City. We visited during Carnaval and the central location was ideal (the dog sled race ran right past the front doors!) The staff was gracious, friendly and accomodating. We will definitely be returning!
Excellent location with friendly staff
An excellent hotel, conveniently located with a short walk to the Old City. Open, modern and small hotel feel are great features, which is a bit different from other Quebec City hotels. I would definitiely suggest requesting a room with a view. Hard to beat their view anywhere else in Quebec, especially for the price. I'm a tough critic and found the staff very friendly, especially the valet service staff who were extremely helpful in giving advice and recommendations of what to do, where to dine, etc.
Comfort and Class
Wonderful old world hotel. Compares favorably with the DuPont in Wilmington Delaware especially for the price. Rooms with a fireplace are a luxury. Enjoyed every minute of our stay.
Don't Forget the Plains of Abraham!
Stayed at the Hotel in August and had perfect weather. Upgraded to a deluxe suite with large jucuzzi tub and bathroom. If you enjoy spending hours walking the Old City you'll love the 2 person tub to soothe those aching muscles!! Working fireplace (wood not gas!) is a nice touch. Make sure you get into the new wing. Love the location, people watching, sitting at all the cafes on the Grande Allee. The Plains of Abraham and St Lawrence Seaway are at your back. Bring a blanket and have a picnic, after finding one of the small wine and cheese shops! Felt the price was reasonable, but man do they stick the taxes to you! Friendly staff, looking forward to going back.
this was our first trip to Quebec City and we couldn't have been happier with the accommodation, friendly staff and the location of the hotel. Being next door to the Plains, the armoury and the Parliament Buildings gave us the opportunity to take short walks to visit them.
sure, the hotel is about a half-hour walk from the Palace Royale, but who would complain about walking through 400 years of history. a fabulous trip -- and the Chateau Laurier was the perfect spot for us.
Oh yah, and a good selection of food and refreshment and the many outdoor cafes around the corner on Grande Ailee.
Good place for my first visit to Quebec City
I stayed at the Chateau Laurier during my first visit to Quebec City (during the Fete last August). I thought the staff were all very pleasant and helpful. My room was small, but, comfortable. I really liked the location because there were some good restaurants close by and it was a nice walk into the old city. For the price, I think this is a good choice.
i recently stayed at chateau laurier during a trip to Quebec City for the Winter Carnival. though the hotel was clean and staff quite amiable, i was rather disappointed with the room (odd smell, rather cramped). also, the hotel's restaurant was being renovated so that was closed. however, every morning the hotel provided a continental breakfast of fresh fruit, cheese, granola bar, muffin and juice. definitely a redeeming feature in my opinion. i wouldn't stay there again but i wouldn't discourage others on a tight budget from staying a night or two. it is conviently located near the old city and other attractions, cafes, etc.
Best mid-range place to stay in Quebec
As of spring 2002, I have made 19 trips to Quebec City. After staying at a variety of locations from the Chateau Frontenac to the Hilton to the Radisson to smaller motels in Ste. Foy, I have concluded the Laurier is ideal for a variety of reasons:
1. Relatively easy to get a room, even during the busy summer season.
2. Walking distance to Grande Allee, Cartierville, Parc des Champs and Vieux Quebec. You won't need your car except to go to the falls or Ile d'Orleans.
3. For a reasonable price, the rooms are nice in size (especially in the new part of the hotel), quiet, clean, well-appointed and convivially staffed.
If you are looking for luxury, turn to the Frontenac or the Hilton. If you are looking for a dive, turn elsewhere. But if you are simply looking for something that gives you bang for your buck in a terrific location, this is the place.

... and went back to the hotel.
Our tour guide was from Quebec City and had the most beautiful accent. Her name was Danielle, and she, by request, gave the tour mostly in English. We walked out from the hotel to the Plaines d'Abraham next to the Citadel. We didn't actually get to go inside the Citadel, but we got a great view of both the fortress and the fortified walls surrounding Old Quebec.
We walked for a few hours around Old ...
... when we would arrive. We got in at 7pm and they were here waiting for us. Helped us unload, and park the car in a nearby garage. The place is small but very nice. We then wandered out to see some street performers and had a late dinner 10pm. Then back to the apartment for some sleep. We are really in the center of the old city here. Everything is in walking ...
... the winter carnival. Back to the restaurant Savini at 9 and got a table for dinner. I had the bruschetta for entrée and lamb shank for main course and we shared a bottle of Australian C******nay, noice! Later we met up with Carl's colleague Celia and her sister and their friends at a club called Le Maurice. They were VIPs and we got to go straight through into the multi level club. We ended up on the top floor where we had some drinks and did some dancing. We ...
The B&B is about a 15 minute walk to the old town - the walled portion, so it's a great location. I.m not the biggest B&B fan but have to say the omlete for breaky was GREAT! At breaky it was me and 3 couples. No one was speaking so I finally broke the ice and asked where everyone one was from. There was a couple from Sherbrooke, QC, a couple from something Falls, Michigan and a couple from Italy. We ended ...
... went to a mall that actually has a ROLLER COASTER inside it!!!!! really not as exciting as it sounds. Canadian malls are annoying. They look exactly the same and the have the exact same shops to each other. Kinda a dag really... Me and an aussie spent the time pretty much persuading eachother not to by anything... and then killed time on a massage chair. good day!
Went skiing for three of those days. Found myself hopelessly trapped in 1 m of snow by ...
