Some posts ago, I told you that I was on a getaway to Quebec City via Montmorency Falls. As part of that tour, I was able to walk around the area of Old Quebec and I enjoyed the small cobblestone streets ...

Located in the heart of "Old Quebec", in the tourist heart of the city, this hotel stands out among the rest for its minimalist decor in a recently renovated old building. The staff are great and are always smiling. Upon check-in, we were lucky enough to be presented with an "upgrade" to a suite: a room with a bath and shower, a large living room with a huge LED TV and a bedroom with corner windows that gave us incredible views like you see on TV ... all, as I said, with a very nice and minimalist decor. In every room there is a Nespresso machine to enjoy a good coffee whenever you want. The hotel has 4 bicycles for rent to its guests, which is a good option to enjoy the city. It has free WiFi and computer downstairs.
A little walk from the old city of Quebec lies the Hotel Palace Royal. It is a very cozy place, with a peculiar feature of the hotels in the chain to which it belongs, the tropical style pool set in a large atrium with lush vegetation surround it
The Hotel de Glace (or Ice Hotel) is amazingly and pain-stakingly rebuilt each year from tons of ice and snow. The whole thing is an artistic masterpiece of themed suites, an ice bar, and other rooms.
Spending a day at the hotel is a fun and easy day trip from Quebec City (shuttles are even available or you can take a public bus if you don't have a rental car). You can take a tour of the beautiful suites, go behind the scenes, or spend time at their winter activities like snow tubing, snowshoeing, or going down the ice slide. Stopping for a drink made with local ingredients like spruce liqueur or maple syrup is also a fun treat.
However, the real joy comes with staying overnight. You'll be provided a winter sleeping bag and instructions for the best ways to stay warm, and yes, you can get a good night's rest. Having the place to yourself is a fun and unique experience! Best of all, overnight guests get access to the sauna as well which is a great way to warm up. Unfortunately, the jacuzzis were lukewarm at best but perhaps you'll have better luck.
This is a great way to enjoy Quebec in the winter! Book early for the best rates.
