QPetitPetit Champlain District - The Hotel is located in the heart of Old Quebec.  Wander the quaint shops within the Petit Champlain district and then sock up the peaceful scenery along the nearby St. Lawrence River.  Explore fascinating churches and other buildings within Old Quebec and discover why this remarkable neighborhood is listed as a UNEXCO World Heritage site.  In 1608, this was a portside city lined with fur traders.  Today, souvenir shops and quaint bistros line the pedestrian cobblestone streets with a few fir shops and art galleries scattered around.

QDufferinDufferin Terrace - Take a horse-drawn carriage (catch right outside of the hotel), and take in the many charming attractions like Dufferin Terrace, the most visited tourist attraction open year round in Quebec City overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Built in 1838, it was named after Lord Dufferin, the Governor of Canada from 1872-1878.

QFallsMontmorency Park Falls is a few minutes from Quebec City.  Located between the river and the cliffs, it's one of the province's most spectacular sites,  With its 83 meters high (30 meters higher than Niagara Falls), Montmorency Falls dominates the landscape.  It can be discovered on foot, by cable car, or from the gourmet restaurant.

Ramparts of Quebec City are the only remaining fortified city walls in North America north of Mexico.  The English began fortifying the existing walls, after they took Quebec City from the French in 1759.  The wall surrounds most of Old Quebec which was declared a World Heritage site in 1985.  The fortifications were designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1948.

The Citadelle of Quebec - The Residence of the Governor General at the Citadelle of Quebec is housed in a building built in 1831 in the neoclassical style.  It was originally occupied by British garrison officers until their departure in 1871.  Lord Dufferin was the first governor general to live in the Citadelle residence in 1872.  In so doing, he re-established the tradition of a residence for the governor general in the city of Quebec, which dated back to the beginning of New France.
