Quebec City

April 13-15, 2018


Hôtel Château Laurier is ideally located in the heart of the city, on Parliament Hill, nestled between the Plains of Abraham, a vast urban park, the lively Grande Allée street and a few blocks from the Québec City Convention Center.

The hotel is also within 5-minute walk of historic district of the Old Québec. This amazing sector is recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site since 1985 and is the birthplace of the French civilisation of North America. To this day, Québec is the only city where the fortification wall remains intact since the 17th century.


Self Parking is $20 per day (plus tax). Valet parking for $24 per day (plus tax). Includes unlimited in/out privileges. Rates subject to change.


The crown jewel of French Canada, Québec City is one of North America’s oldest and most magnificent settlements. Its picturesque Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, a living museum of narrow cobblestone streets, 17th- and 18th-century houses and soaring church spires, with the splendid Château Frontenac towering above it all. There’s more than a glimmer of Old Europe in its classic bistros, sidewalk cafes and manicured squares.

La Citadelle

La Citadelle, North America's largest fort was begun by the French in the 1750s and completed by the British in 1850, intended to defend against an American invasion that never came. A one-hour guided tour takes in the regimental museum and numerous historical sites. 

Plains of Abraham

The site of many clashes for supremacy between the French and British Empires, the park is the scene of the 1759 Conquest, which changed the fate of North America. Apart from its historical past, the park is to Québec what Central Park and Hyde Park are to New York and London: a city park of outstanding value, the lungs of the city. 

Chateau Frontenac

This elegant structure was built in 1893 by the Canadian Pacific Railway as part of its chain of luxury hotels. Its fabulous turrets, winding hallways and imposing wings graciously complement its dramatic location atop Cap Diamant, a cliff that swoops into the St Lawrence River. 

St. Lawrence River & Vieux-Port de Québec

The St. Lawrence River—a massive presence cutting clean across the Québec area—cannot be overlooked. Gateway to America, it has been a part of the city’s economic landscape for over 400 years. Harbour and trade activities and the ever-growing number of cruise ships docking in the Vieux-Port de Québec testify to its importance. A public market, park, bike path and shows also bring the Vieux Port to life and help make this river-washed place truly idyllic.

Near the bridges that span the River, the Aquarium du Québec not only provides an outstanding view of the majestic waterway, but also presents the marine mammals and species that inhabit it.

Close by, the Promenade Samuel-De Champlain is also worth a gander: the River flowing at your feet is simply spectacular!

Grande Allée

A string of great restaurants, appealing patios, and appetizing menus are all great reasons to stop by for something to eat or drink.

There are eateries for all budgets and tastes, including Louis-Hébert with its fine cuisine, Savini Resto-Bar for Italian dishes, and the always popular and never dull Cosmos Restaurant, and Chez Ashton for late-night poutine!

Grande Allée is also renowned for its hopping nightlife. DJs, dance floors, terrasses, and bars - it has everything you need to enjoy a memorable evening. No night out in Québec City would be complete without a visit to the famous Maurice Salon-Bar. Its 100-year-old surroundings are home to theme evenings and the hottest atmosphere in town! Swing by Chez Ashton for late-night poutine like any good Québécois clubgoer should.


The Québécois do indeed love their beer. The number of microbreweries in the province of Quebec could lead one to believe that microbreweries are a long-standing tradition; but in fact, the first microbrewery is said to have opened in the early 1980s.

In Quebec City, several microbreweries not only produce but also serve beer - including exclusive blends - plus they offer delicious homemade food on their premises, becoming some of the coolest spots to grab a casual lunch or dinner.

La Korrigane

La Korrigane is a brewery that produces its beers in very small quantities and serves them exclusively in its lively pub. In addition to traditional blends, the brewery also uses ingredients such as fresh blueberries and maple sap to produce intriguingly complex beers. The food is creative and uses locally-grown and produced ingredients.

La Barberie

Off the beaten path on an outlying street of Saint-Roch, La Barberie is a laid-back spot visited by a diverse crowd, including hipsters, bar flies, and even families. Sample all of the tap selection by ordering the “carousel,” a wooden stand that holds eight glasses or pints.

Brasserie L'Inox

For a great baptism into the world of Quebec beer, try the venerated micro-brewery, Bar L’Inox. Sit in the main dining room with high ceilings, at the metallic bar or outside on the terrace and enjoy beer brewed on-site. Just like the drinkers, the popular flavours (such as the coriander-infused Trouble-Fête) soon become regulars. Whether it’s a blonde, white, amber, red or brown drop you’re after, you’re sure to find a craft beer that will delight.

La Souche

This brewery makes its own blends - its beer lineup features 20+ varieties - but true to its mission of encouraging Quebec’s industry, it also serves beers from other microbreweries. The pub is rustic and cozy, and the surprisingly elaborate menu features classic pub fare like burgers, poutines, and snacks, but everything is made fresh using the best local ingredients.

For the Family

It's a mall! It's an amusement park! It's...both! A shopper's nirvana, Les Galeries has over 250 stores, from major retailers to small independent boutiques. It's got the requisite food court, two multi-screen cinemas, an IMAX theater and plenty more. But it also happens to be the province of Québec's only indoor theme park, complete with rides, miniature golf, an ice skating rink, an arcade and a playground, all under one roof. Perfect for that rainy day when the kids have seen about all they care to see of the inside of your hotel!
