Quebec City: Fairmont Le Château Frontenac

Built in the late 19th century, the iconic hotel, perched high atop Cap Diamant overlooking the St. Lawrence river, evokes feelings of romantic elegance normally associated with historic European castles. Even if you are not staying at the hotel, it will likely appear as the backdrop in most of your photos of the centuries-old walled city and is well worth the trip up the hillside to explore the chateau itself and all the property has to offer.

Le Château Frontenac is most idyllic during the colder months when Old Quebec welcomes its Winter Carnival and the luminescence from the hotel can be seen glowing through the snowfall. The hotel also hosts its own winter activities on property, including an ice skating rink and a triple chute toboggan ride from 1935 that takes riders across a quarter-mile long track.
