Hilton Quebec City Dream Views and Steps from Everything

Snow topped historical buildings are iconic scenes when visiting Quebec City, but for me, it was the dream view from my hotel room. Like a painting I have seen many times in my geographic studies of Canada there, it was: The Chateau Frontenac and all the historic buildings of Quebec staring back at me.

The Hilton Hotel Quebec City offered the perfect location for my stay during Carnival de Quebec celebrations. In fact, in addition to my spectacular view of the old city, I could see Bonhomme’s Ice Palace from my room.

Great Location Hilton Quebec City

I did a lot of walking that weekend in Quebec, but I was able to cover so much more than I could have imagined thanks to the location of this hotel. From the well-known shopping street Rue Saint-Jean (just a few blocks away), the Old City of Quebec, Chateau de Frontenac, Quebec City Winter Carnival attractions and even some nightlife on Grand Allée was all just a few minutes walk. It’s like the hotel was ideally placed in the epicenter of it all.

Heated outdoor pool Hilton Quebec City Review

Fitness Facilities and Outdoor Pool

A first for me was a morning swim in the heated outdoor pool, the first time I swam in an outdoor swimming pool in the dead of winter. Steam rose from the heated water, and the pool patio was covered in snow. It was a great way to prepare for my visit to the Siberian Station Scandinavian Spa just outside the city.

If an outdoor swim in the heated pool is not appealing there is also a fitness facility filled with cardio machines and weights. However, during my stay, it was always full even early in the morning.

Breakfast Buffet at Hilton Quebec City

I have to admit I enjoyed the food and dining in the city of Quebec, but my room included a visit to the breakfast buffet, and I did take advantage of it. The staff was pleasant and offered to make me custom eggs vs. the eggs available in the hot buffet. There was also lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese and pastries.

Hilton Hotel Perfect for Quebec Winter Carnival

During my stay, I visited the Winter Carnival site many times. The proximity of the hotel to the main site and Bonhomme’s Ice Palace was perfect as it gave me an opportunity to go back to my room throughout the day and warm up or drop off shopping purchases.

Located just outside the old city walls the Hilton Quebec City is really in the centre of it all. Walking distance from almost all the major Quebec City attractions. | Hotel | Quebec City | Travel |
