Probably the first thing that tourists visit in Quebec is the famous hotel Château Frontenac. This magnificent palace was built at the end of the 19th century. The first part of it was built in 1893. The entire hotel was completed by 1926. It was built not as a residence for a rich family or crowned heads, but as a hotel of the highest class.

The hotel is perfectly visible from almost any part of the city, as it is located on a hill. It seems that this is not a modern building, but a real medieval castle. There are towers, bastions, thick walls. Everything characteristic of that time is perfectly combined in this unique hotel. The architecture and exterior decoration of the Château Frontenac have been one of the hallmarks of Quebec for many years. And in 1981, the hotel received a special status that is rarely given to such institutions. It has been listed as a National Historic Site of Canada.

High-class hotels should be beautiful not only outside, but also inside. So there is almost a royal decor, which is preserved both in the common and individual rooms. Guests are greeted with expensive furniture, marble bathrooms, and chic carpets.

Besides, the main bonus of the rooms is a magnificent view of the city and the river valley. The hotel is located on Cape Diamond on the banks of the Saint Lawrence River. Therefore, walking in these picturesque surroundings is a great pleasure.

This hotel was very much loved by famous people who came to Quebec both for their important business and leisure. For example, Roosevelt and Churchill held personal meetings there. Famous representatives of Hollywood and show business used the rooms of this hotel as a vacation residence.
