With the towering Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre shooting up out of the rolling skyline of the Laurentian Mountains like lightning, the Beaupre quarter boasts some of the most enchanting scenery in Canada, not too far from Downtown Quebec. Adrenaline-junkies can scythe across the slopes at the Mont-Sainte-Anne ski resort, while anyone who loves life's calmer exploits can gaze for hours upon the gorgeous gushing waterfalls at Canyon Sainte-Anne.
If you love exploring a district at your own pace, Lower Town's got your name on it. A picturesque network of narrow cobbled streets, lined with high-end shops, and quaint eateries that fill Maison Chevalier and Rue du Petit-Champlain with the mouth-watering scents of authentic Québécois poutine and smoked meats. If you prefer the effervescent energy of a thriving city, the retail hub at St-Pierre is alive with visitors 24/7.
Quebec's oldest district also happens to be one of its prettiest: a delightful mix of colonial French architecture and picturesque cobbled streets. The Place-Royale square, bursting with delectable al fresco restaurants and featuring a vibrant, colorful mural is a must, as is the 17th Century stone Notre-Dame-des-Victoires church. Or delve into the fascinating ancient and colonial history of Quebec at the Musee de la Civilisation.
If you're at your happiest when bustling from high-street stores to designer boutiques, the Sainte-Foy district is where you want to head. Laurier Quebec shopping center boasts over 300 stores to keep even the most discerning shopaholic hungry for more, while the Parc Aquarium is a family-friendly treat for kids and animal-lovers alike. By contrast, great views of the Saint Lawrence river can be had in Sillery.
Upper Town is a beautiful quarter of Old Quebec dominated by the palatial red-brick wonder of the Chateau Frontenac, one of Canada's most iconic buildings, boasting incredible views across the majestic Saint Lawrence river. Immerse yourself in Quebec's rich past from the ramparts of La Citadelle, an imposing fortress with its own military museum, or splash the cash at a designer store down the Rue St-Jean.

"Good location, Good amenities"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Oct 20, 2012
A nice little hotel/motel, centrally located to many sights in Quebec City. Short distance to city center, short distance to Morancy Falls, right off of Highway 440/40/73 so you can go anywhere. Room was small but pleasant. Staff was friendly, communicated well in both French and English. Pool was heated, clean, and great, plus whirlpool and sauna. Breakfast was a little on the sparse side. Would stay again certainly.
"Convenient to Airport"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Oct 19, 2012
Hotel is one of the closest to Jean-Lesage Airport, about a 2-mile walk or a 5-minute taxi ride. Room was fine and clean, typical for this type of hotel. Lobby is tiny, staff was very helpful. It's next to shopping, fast-food restaurants, and a movie theater. We chose this so we could be close to the airport to return a rental car at the airport one evening and leave for a very early flight the next morning. Note that there is no elevator, so be prepared to carry luggage up the stairs.
"Good for families"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Jun 7, 2012
We chose this hotel because we were able to get a room that had a separate sleeping area so that we could have our children sleep in one room and us in another. It suited this purpose perfectly. We put the children to bed in the bedroom and when we were ready to go to sleep we moved them to the pull out couch. The pull out couch was typically uncomfortable and was fine for young children but wouldn't be for young adults or adults. The hotel wasn't fancy but it was very clean, the room was convenient and the service was great. The continental breakfast was good (bagels, muffins, toast, cereal, hard boiled eggs, fruit) and the attendent was very friendly and helpful.
