Bottom Line

This 95-room boutique hotel is housed in a historic building facing the St. Lawrence River in the Old City. Decor varies across the sophisticated, spacious rooms, but all have upscale touches such as Nespresso machines, evening turndown service, and luxurious bathrooms featuring heated floors and flat-screen TVs. The restaurant, Panache, serves seasonal, local cuisine in a former maritime warehouse (think: thick wood beams, stone walls), and the more casual Bar Artefact serves cocktails and gourmet fare in a bright, contemporary lounge. Amenities include a modern, 24-hour fitness center, a screening room, spa treatment rooms, and a free business center. The hotel is situated on an archaeological site, and historical artifacts are displayed throughout the property.

Oyster Hotel Review


Very central location in Quebec's Old City

Map of Auberge Saint-Antoine

Auberge Saint-Antoine is in the heart of the Old City and within walking distance of almost all major tourist sites. Furthermore, the bus that runs all the way down the river picks up just outside the hotel.

Quebec City is a historic, walled metropolis with the charm, history, and architecture of a European capital, all set at the top of Cape Diamond. The views out over the cliff are beautiful, as are the city's buildings and cathedrals. The city also has a healthy nightlife scene, and during the summer, the party goes on every night. The European feel and sensibility of the city mean that shopping is a worthy endeavor, especially in the boutiques of the Old City. But the weather in the winter is snowy and extremely cold.
