Phenomenal feeling to think that a bloody battle of 15 minutes between an experienced General ( Montcalm ) and a young one ( Wolfe ), would end in an ambush of the French, but because of the tenacity, strength and faith of the French, they were the victorious ones in the end.
Well worth the visit. Review map to understand layout of stairs, entrance and exit areas from the the park back into the city sites. Wear good walking shoes, Plains of Abraham Museum is a great feature.
Plains of Abraham is a big park along the river built above former fortifications. It has several sections filled with flowers, sculptures, old cannons. Our favorite part was the area filled with tables, benches, and big gazebo in the center where band played and singers sung. People were enjoying vine in toll glasses, snacks and music. there is small cafe (and bathroom) selling coffee and snacks
The museum tour starts with a 20 minute film of the history of the battle that took place here. The museum has hands on exhibits. Afterward you have the beautiful grounds to walk about with stunning vistas of the river and the Citadelle.
Great place to run or walk with nice view of the river and information about the history. Joan of Arc section is very pretty too. If you want a great workout run the stairs to/from lower town from the park.
The Plains of Abraham are a must see. The Museum there is excellent and you can include a bus tour of the Plains and an interactive tour of the Martello Tower. Plaques throughout the Park show locations of important events in the Battle. But it is also a wonderful place to take a picnic lunch, sit on the grass or at one of the seemingly hundreds of picnic tables spread throughout the park; or take a book, perhaps a tour book of Quebec, and read on one of the myriad park benches.
Lovely staff people, friendly and happily helpful. Large, clean room and bathroom with firm comfortable beds, crisp linen, nice bedding and all, and plenty, of amenities needed including a round table and comfortable swivel chairs at the large windows. Handsomely decorated rooms and public areas. Steps outside St Jean’s arch making it easy to access Vieux Quebec or an easy walk up hill to the Plains of Abraham and the Grand Allee. Underground parking and ability to come and go each day without additional charges.
The hotel itself is a pleasure to be in, the staff are gracious, and the location can't be beat. If you take Google's suggestion to drive along the river and up the hill, it's very scenic, but there is a route in from the west past the Plains of Abraham. Also, be sure to take a look at the historic displays about both the hotel and the city set up in the lower level hallways.
The location is on a quiet block but right in the middle of Vieux-Québec and a very quick walk to other various sites (Rue St Louis, Plains of Abraham, the Citadel, Chateau Frotenac, etc). The hotel is definitely in an older, historic building, but the room (at least the one I stayed in) was nicely modernized with all of the various fixings.
The proximity to Old Quebec. It was also an easy walk to other locations (e.g. Plains of Abraham, the wall) and restaurants. Our room was clean, which was important since we traveled during a pandemic. We were able to find a parking garage nearby.
The hotel is in a great location, the upper floor rooms have great views, if you are a cross country skier you can leave leave your skies in the car and just pick them up on your way to ski the Plains of Abraham
Liked the coffee maker in the room. The hotel was one block from Plains of Abraham and the start of a great free walking tour. Parking was included. Near restaurants. A doable walk to Old Quebec.
Location is great if for those that wish to cross country ski and snow shoe on the Plains of Abraham. The concierges were extremely helpful.
COmfortable room and the staff went above and beyond — carrying a cot up two flights of stairs. Great location by the Plains of Abraham.
The plains of Abraham are wonderful to walk around and for a picnic. The park is lush by the splendid St. Lawrence River.
