Canada: Quebec, Quebec City
Your Rating:Five Stars
Reviewed by: Danny Eaton
Date of Trip: January 15, 2000

This is a review of Quebec City. We traveled there on, Jan 15 of this year. Quebec is a city full of French heritage and a lot of old world charm. The cafe's and shops are not to be missed and the overall friendliness of the people is a part of what made this trip fun.

Getting There
We drove but you can use other modes of transportation to get there. Quebec is a popular port for the fall foliage cruises. Of course you can take bus, train, plain exc. I heard one lady say that she was from Boston.

We stayed in a cozy inn called Hotel Terase' Dufferin. It used to be a mansion over looking the St. Lawernce. The rooms are well appointed. The Inn provides breakfast also. If you want quiet and just want to relax you will enjoy it immensely. If you want to stay at a hotel which is a little more convenient, you may want the Concorde. It is a little ways up town. Atop the hotel sits a rotating restaurant 600' above the ground. Yes the prices are reasonable- $209 per room w/breakfast.

Food and Service
There was no restaurant at the inn where we stayed. So we had our choice of many, many places to eat. They were all good. The dining in Quebec differs from dining in the U.S. The people who work there are more friendly and take their job far more seriously. It is like you are at a fine restaurant than a cafe'. All the food is prepared as if it was a display i.e.(the midnight buffet' on a cruise).

There are things to see, for example, the American art museum. It is incredible. You may want to visit the fort which is next to where I stayed. The Chateau' Frontenac' is spectacular. You may take tours of that if you wish or you may stay there. It's similar to the Ritz or the Plaza in Ny. It has some good packages which include dinners there also. If you are not budget minded you may want to dine there. We ate at one of their restaurants and the food was exquisite' The service made you feel more than welcome there. My parents and I are staying at the hotel on our return to Quebec. The dark oak paneling and the marble seemed to make the place feel warm even though it was massive. In the winter Quebec attracts skiers. The mountain it 1/5 hour away. If front of my hotel there was a toboggan slide. It goes on for a couple of hundred feet. Tickets are about $1 per person. Make sure you exchange your money; not all the stores have exchange. The mall does and the nice shops do too. The city is divided into two sections the old city is down below at the water level. It is crammed with fine shops and cafe's, you should go down and see it. There is an outside elevator to get to the old city. It goes down the side of the wall. The views are great. There are 301 steps to get to the old city also then there is a lot of down hill walking. But it flattens ut as you reach the bottom. The whole time you are on side walk and there shops on the way down.

The inn where I stayed did not have fitness. The Frontenac' and the Concorde do have fitness and indoor pools; as do all fine hotels and resorts.

I do not know. Maybe at the Concore and the Chateau'.
