A historic hotel with a beautiful design and
exceptional rooftop terrace
This hotel's historic and stately
19th century Neo-classical building used to be the
head office of the National Bank of Canada. Now, interiors have a modern, minimalist design that includes gray tile,
colorful contemporary art, and high ceilings. Red or tan tufted furniture
provides seating and there is one sitting area with a large stained glass window and detailed crown molding. Coffee,
tea, and newspapers are available for free in the lobby. The upmarket,
rustic Restaurant Il Matto has dark concrete floors, artsy glittering light
fixtures, and dark wood chairs. Red accent walls look smart against the long mid-tone
wood bar counter, which has a red-lit wall showcasing various liquor bottles. The restaurant draws guests from across Quebec City and from the hotel. Upstairs is
a wonderful rooftop terrace with amazing views of Old Quebec, and hotel guests are predominantly couples.
In Old Quebec, surrounded by shops and restaurants
Hotel 71 resides in the
heart of historic Old Quebec with the Quebec Cruise Terminal, Place Royale, and Church of Notre-Dame-des-Victoires within a
five-minute walk. The Quebec Experience, Old Quebec Funicular, and Quebec-Levis
Ferry Terminal are also around a five-minute walk from the hotel while the
Seminary of Quebec is about a 10-minute walk away. There are restaurants and shops in almost every direction and the Museum of Civilization is just across the street. The trendy and artsy Saint-Roch neighborhood takes about 20 minutes to reach on foot, or less than 10 by taxi. The
Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport is a 25-minute drive from the hotel. Expect to pay additional fees for valet parking.
Chic and modern, with high ceilings and magnificent rainfall showerheads
offer 14-foot ceilings as well as large windows that provide lots of natural light.
Clean lines define the minimalist aesthetic, as does a neutral color palette, and
there are light hardwood floors throughout. These rooms are undeniably chic and contemporary, though some may find them a bit spartan as there's zero wall art. Tan bedspreads and curtains complement gray area rugs while red armchairs or pillows provide pops of color and the hardwood bed platforms are particularly stylish. Reading lights are
built into headboards and flat-screen TVs sit on short dressers.
Mini-fridges reside in the closets along with the bathrobes, and there are
Nespresso coffeemakers on gray granite countertops. Some rooms have exposed
brick walls and iPod docking stations while others have views of the St.
Lawrence River and Cap Diamant. The Penthouse offers a fireplace, powder room,
and kitchenette in addition to a rooftop deck with seating and exceptional
views. Marvelous gray
tile bathrooms are large, with speckled gray granite countertops and white round
sinks. Gorgeous walk-in tile showers have rainfall showerheads while some
bathrooms also have separate tubs. Pharmacopia toiletries are provided,
but some bathrooms only have showers. Past guests have complained that the air conditioners are loud.
Italian restaurant and free breakfast plus a proper business center
Authentic Italian cuisine that draws a mixed local-tourist crowd is served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Restaurant Il Matto, and there is
a bar with cocktails, beer, and wine. Additionally, all room packages include a free continental buffet breakfast with breads, fruit, croissants, cheeses, and
