Bottom Line

The BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre/Centre-Ville is in the historic St-Roch neighborhood, not far from the Old City center, though the walk there is partially uphill. It's 177 guest rooms have a muted conservative look with some dated furnishings, but with work desks, ergonomic chairs, mini-fridges, and iPod docks, they don't lack for conveniences. The familiar three-pearl chain has some surprises too; the indoor pool is decorated with wall murals, and there's a coffee and wine bar, along with a trendy bistro. Guests who prefer being right in Old Quebec should compare with the four-pearl Hotel Manoir Victoria, which adds modern meeting rooms and a spa, at comparable rates.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Mid-range chain with a lovely indoor pool and trendy eatery

The hotel is showing its age in places and has an overall bland, dark style evidenced by the tired-looking lobby, but it also has a bright indoor pool room with walls and ceilings decorated in hand-painted murals. Additionally, a partial renovation in 2013 added a restaurant to the building's central atrium. Tables at the new Bistro Le 330 are set beneath white sculptural chandeliers dangling from the ceiling six-stories up (some of the units overlook this interior space). Guests are split between leisure travelers, both families and couples, and business travelers. The hotel touts green certifications and eco-friendly practices, like water conservation systems and a small rooftop garden. 

Location

In St-Roch, with walking distance to the Old City

Map of BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre/Centre-Ville

The BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre/Centre-Ville is in the historic St-Roch district within walking distance of cafes, upscale restaurants, and designer boutiques. Some of the Old City's 17th- and 18th-century buildings, cobblestone streets, and historic landmarks are within walking distance from here too, but the walk there is uphill and sights closer to the waterfront would be too far for most travelers to reach on foot. The Citadelle of Quebec is a 10-minute drive away, and it's about a 15-minute drive to The Battlefields Park. The Videotron Centre, is also about a 15-minute drive, in the opposite direction. Expect a 35-minute drive to Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport.

Rooms

Work desks, mini-fridges, and iPod docks; upgraded rooms have large rainfall showers

Most of the 177 guest rooms have exterior city views, but 24 rooms overlook the interior atrium above the bistro. The decor is a bit stuffy, with beige carpets, striped window dressings, dark wood furnishings, and brass light fixtures. Standard rooms have either king, or two queen beds, and seating areas with dated-looking old armchairs. Free Wi-Fi comes standard along with 40-inch flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and iPod docks. All units also have have work desks with roller chairs. Business and Executive Rooms are located on the upper floors and add Keurig coffee machines, and better ergonomic work chairs; some also have sofa beds. Most bathrooms have a shower/tub combos with removable showerheads, though Executive rooms swap the tubs for extra large walk-in rainfall showers, and all come equipped with hairdryers and toiletries. 

Features

Indoor pool and hot tub, gym, and stylish bistro, but breakfast and parking cost extra

This chain offers enough amenities for a comfortable stay. The small indoor pool is only four feet deep at its deepest, but it's in a beautiful room covered in hand-painted walls depicting scenes from the Old City. The room also has a large hot tub, along with a few loungers and couches. An adjacent fitness room is small, cramming in a treadmill, two stair steppers, a stationary bike, an elliptical, and a Yoga mat, but equipment is relatively up-to-date. For dining, the trendy Bistro Le 330 is open for breakfast (not included in rates) and dinner, serving French and American dishes from salmon tartare and duck confit, to burgers and beer-battered fish and chips (and of course, fries). Cafe In serves coffee, beer, wine and a light food menu throughout the day. The lobby has a 24-hour business corner with three computers and a printer. Valet parking is available for a fee, but Wi-Fi is free throughout.
