Visit Quebec considers the 100-room Best Western Premier Hotel Aristocrate, in the Quebec City suburb of St. Foy, to be one of the top two moderately priced hotel options in the Quebec City region. It offers reasonable rates, cleanliness and comfort, and its convenient location, an easy 20-minute drive to the Old City.
This modern, well-maintained property is located a block from Laurier Boulevard (QC-175). That’s about 10km and 6 miles drive from the heart of the picturesque Walled City. There are no turns on Laurier Boulevard, as it becomes the Grande Allee, then passes through the St. Louis Gate. It takes you all the way until it ends at the boardwalk outside the Chateau Frontenac.

The Aristocrate is highly recommended for families, not just for its popular rates and spacious guestrooms. Its proximity to a little-known but very worthwhile attraction, the nearby Quebec City Aquarium, a five-minute drive from the hotel make it a good choice. The hotel is also around the corner from Place Laurier, a major Quebec City shopping center. It offers informal family-friendly restaurant, Bistro l’Aristocrate, offers a variety of French and Canadian cuisine. The hotel has an outdoor pool, and its spacious guestrooms feature 42-inch LCD televisions. It also offers complimentary wired and wireless Internet access, refrigerators and iPod docking stations, and designer toiletries for parents.
The décor is more corporate than quaint, but the hotel is clean and modern. We consider it ideal for families on a budget, and there is more than enough quaint, just 20 minutes away in the Old City.
