Just half an hour’s drive from Jean-Lesage International Airport, this historic stone-built boutique hotel is set in the World Heritage Site of the Old Port of Quebec, across from the Saint Lawrence river. The perfect base for exploring the city, the hotel is just a 6-minute walk from the bustling streets, museums and fortifications of the Quartier Petit Champlain. Children are welcome and babysitting is available on request.
More a living museum than hotel, created from three historic buildings, including the city’s only remaining dockside warehouse, the stylish Auberge offers 84 elegant rooms and suites, including six Historic themed suites, all designed with a blend of contemporary luxury and archaeological artifacts found during the excavation of the site. Mod cons include free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs, plus Bose stereos, mini bars, Nespresso machines, and there are thoughtful extra touches such as teapots, so you can start the day as if you were at home. Sumptuous bathrooms have heated floors, robes and slippers and We Live Like This bath and body products. Some of the rooms have balconies and/or river views, while the suites feature separate living areas and period details. For the ultimate escape book the rooftop Panorama Suite, with a breathtaking terrace overlooking the river and the Ile d’Orleans.
Work out in the gym then indulge in a massage courtesy of the in-room spa service, or take an archeological tour of the hotel, before venturing out to the bustling streets of the Old Port. In Summer the streets come to life with musicians, actors in period costume and acrobats perfomring on every corner, while in spring and autumn, you can enjoy the stunning natural colours without the crowds, while in January and February the Winter Carnival brings drama and warmth to the coldest months of the year.
The Auberge also has its own private cinema so you can catch up on your favourite films without having to leave the hotel.
The Panache restaurant is set in the 19-century warehouse, where it serves a gourmet market-driven menu and an extensive wine selection in a rustic-chic setting with views of the river. The café-bar Artefact serves light meals and a good range of drinks.
