Quebec City Marriott Downtown
Why We Love This Hotel
- Conveniently located hotel on the Place d'Youville, close to the Old City’s restaurants and museums
- The hotel has a personal atmosphere -- it’s on the smaller side, and staff go the extra mile
- A 24-hour gym with complimentary fresh fruit and towels
Just outside St. Jean Gate -- the gateway to the Old City sits the modern, yet homey Quebec City Marriott Downtown. It overlooks the Place d'Youville, a lively square that’s dotted with open-air markets on summer weekends and hosts an ice rink during the winter months.
This spot is excellent for sightseeing -- the Old Port is a 15-minute walk, and museums like the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec, and the Musée de la Civilisation are both within walking distance. Top restaurants, such as Initiale ("one of the best in the entire province," according to Frommer’s) on the Rue Saint Pierre and Le Continental for classic flambés on the Rue Saint Louis, are also close at hand.
The hotel has a French bistro; breakfast here is popular and can get busy, so bear this in mind if you’re short on time. There's a 24-hour gym; fresh fruit and towels are provided.
Rooms are classically Marriott, with crisp linens and contemporary design. Standard rooms aren’t huge (it’s a city hotel), but they’re comfortable. Some have views of the city or the St. Lawrence River.
