The full-service Hotel Port Royal is located in a historic building in a quiet neighborhood in the Port of Quebec, steps from Café du Monde and Chez Muffy, two of Quebec City’s top five best restaurants.(MAP)
The hotel’s unassuming exterior opens into a lobby that exudes a rustic elegance, with exposed brick walls and a crackling fireplace in the winter that tempts guests to just stay inside and skip the many attractions nearby, or hurry back after dinner.
The Port Royal is a short walk from the Musée de la Civilisation (Museum of Civilization), and to Place Royal and Quartier Petit Champlain, Old Quebec’s picturesque shopping district (MAP), from which visitors can board the Funiculaire (outdoor elevator) for a one-minute ride to the boardwalk outside the Chateau Frontenac, the gateway to the Upper City and everything it has to offer.
The spacious, well-maintained guestrooms, many surrounded by ancient brick and stone walls, are equipped with fully functional kitchenettes and decorated with a Quebecois flair. All guestrooms, as well as all public areas, have free WIFI access. Other amenities include room service, a 24-hour gym, valet parking, electric vehicle charging stations, and the hotel is pet-friendly.
Breakfast and dinner are available on-site at La Taverne Louise, which serves a pleasing mix of French and French-Canadian cuisine.
Our Visit Quebec editors recommend the Hotel Port Royal, more for couples than for families, as a quiet, comfortable, romantic weekend option, for guests interested in parking and walking, and immersing themselves in Old City history and ambiance.
