Sitting atop 200-foot cliffs, a Quebec City hotel offers stunning views of the St. Lawrence River and surrounding Laurentian mountains. With a wealth of French culture at your fingertips, a trip here can seem to transport you across the Atlantic to the Old World.
With history dating back to the 17th century, the walled fortress area of Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Haute-Ville, or Upper Town. The winding, cobblestone streets lead you to the Citadel, Museum of Arts, and many Quebec City hotels including luxurious icons such as Chateau Frontenac.
Quintessential Quebec City
Outside the walls, connected by public transportation and a series of unique staircases such as the breakneck flight known as Escalier Casse-Cou, is Basse-Ville (Lower Town), one of the most popular areas for those who want to stay in a hotel in Quebec City. Providing easy access to the historic area, it also offers Place-Royal, a public square where the French first founded the settlement in 1608, and Quebec City's Museum of Civilization.
West of Old Town is the modern, downtown area where you'll find upscale shopping, dining, holiday festivities, and hotels in Quebec City. For the prettiest panoramic views, book a cheap hotel in Quebec City across the narrow St. Lawrence River in the small town of Levis. Ferry service is provided frequently for travel to Old Town, and Levis makes a good base for exploring surrounding areas or activities like skiing, biking, and hiking excursions.
