The 618-room Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac is a grand and ornate Quebec City landmark. It's housed in a 19th century castle, which was used as a stopover destination for Canadian Pacific Railway riders, and is full of ornate design features, such as a grand double staircase, wood paneling, coffered ceilings, and chandeliers. Rooms are elegant, and some have fantastic river views, but they start at just 175 square feet, and feel a bit less luxurious than those at many other Fairmont properties. They're are still perfectly lovely for a four-pearl hotel, but guests may need to manage their expectations after viewing the much grander exterior. Amenities include a beautiful indoor pool with Jacuzzi, steam rooms, and a fitness center. Le Champlain is a fine dining restaurant with sweeping views, and the St. Laurent Bar has live jazz once a week. Some guests might be turned off by the tourists milling about the lobby, but this is still one of the most luxurious options in Old City.
