To the point

Here is my review of the Hilton Quebec which, after a year of renovations, has reopened in the beginning of 2021.

This is like a “come-back” for me since I had already come to the Hilton Quebec for several conventions.

Booking at the Hotel

A post from Marie-Pascale on the milesopedia Facebook group about the “See and Eat” package at Hilton Quebec, which has just reopened after a year of renovations, has helped us decide to take a trip to Quebec City for a 3-day weekend that promises to be sunny.

My spouse and I are both Hilton Honors Gold thanks to the Platinum Card® from American Express.

We used to book a room in our own name and contact the hotel to request that the rooms be adjacent to each other to enjoy:

  • breakfasts for 2 people
  • elite nights
  • and promotions

The booking is made directly on the Hilton website and by checking the CAA rate, we can save a few extra dollars per room.

However, if you are a CAA member or have a corporate rate, you can get an additional discount by entering the code when booking.

To contact the hotel, I use the messaging system on the hotel’s Facebook site when it’s not possible to do so through the mobile app.

I usually ask that our two rooms be adjacent to each other and if it is possible to have an upgrade for at least one of them since we both have Gold status.

About an hour and a half after my message, I was given the Director’s contact information so that he could arrange this for us. The hotel is under renovation, it doesn’t have enough suites, but the manager upgrades us to a Suite with a connecting room.

Hilton Quebec location

Located in the St-Jean-Baptiste district, close to all amenities in the center, the Hilton Quebec is a 20-minute drive from the Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB).

Around the hotel

It is ideally located between Old Quebec, the Plains of Abraham and the Château Frontenac.

The hotel is located across from Parliament, a 5-minute walk from Place d’Youville.

Hilton Quebec Hotel Reception

We leave Montreal in the early afternoon so as not to arrive too late at the hotel.

The check-in is done quickly, our rooms are ready, the staff is welcoming and efficient.

We each received a bag containing our welcome gifts to mark our Hilton status.

Our rooms are newly renovated and are located on the 23rd and top floor of the hotel.

Kitchen

The kitchen is a closed room with a coffee machine, a refrigerator and a sink.

There are no microwaves in the rooms, but it is possible to ask the reception to have one installed.

Interestingly, the kitchen has its own door to the outside.

The second bedroom

It is comfortable and smaller than the Suite, but decorated in the same spirit.

The view

The windows in the bedrooms and living room allow you to enjoy the view of Quebec City. Day or night, the view of the river and the Château Frontenac is breathtaking.

It is an exceptional place to work or simply to take your messages

  • A restaurant bar on the ground floor (unfortunately closed during the pandemic).
  • A take-out counter

Dinner in the room

Even though the hotel’s restaurants were closed, we took advantage of our stay to order the three-course “See and Eat” menu that is delivered to the room.

I personally loved the grilled octopus and the maple dessert, it’s a great addition to this stay and a way to enjoy both the view and the food.

The breakfast

The hotel has a take-out counter on the ground floor where we can pick up our breakfast, which is free with our Hilton Gold statuses (two per room).

With the choice offered, it is a nice surprise in times of pandemic.

Our general impression of the Hilton Quebec

The Hilton Quebec is a beautiful rediscovery for me. I find that the renovations have given a second wind to the hotel and highlighted its qualities and its exceptional location.
