As Quebec City expanded out and around its historic core, this atmospheric center was wisely preserved. The neighborhood is now an appealing tangle of cobblestone streets and uneven rooftops, pulled close to the shores of the St. Lawrence River. Le Saint-Pierre Auberge fills in a 200-year-old building on a narrow lane that was early Quebec City’s version of Wall Street. The financial wealth is apparent in the building’s solid masonry, decorative scrollwork and generous proportions.
When the hotel underwent a $500,000 polishing-up in 2013, contractors paid close attention to maintaining period touches. The original sturdy stone walls enclose the rooms, which are lined with new, yet period-appropriate, wainscoting and oak window frames. Original wood floors are covered with simple sisal rugs and topped with clean-lined furnishings in soothing neutral taupe and gray tones. The common areas have plush leather furniture and stained glass windows and light fixtures, while hallways have painted frescoes of the city.
Directly across the street is the Musee de la Civilisation, with a revolving schedule of diverse exhibitions showcasing Haitian artists, modern Inuit culture, the history of Quebec’s people, 1970s video games, and more. A few blocks south is the Place Royale, a particularly well-preserved hive of 1600s inns and churches that made up “New France.”
