Hilton Quebec – Quebec City

King-Deluxe-Hilton-Quebec

I won a trip to Quebec City last year and I was finally able to take a road trip out to this beautiful place with my sister this past spring. You can read all about our adventures here. I haven’t been to Quebec since Paul went on a work trip in 2003 and it was lovely to return here again. One of the places we stayed at on this trip was the Hilton Quebec.

The Hilton Quebec is located on Parliament Hill and directly connected to the Quebec City Convention Centre. It’s a perfect choice if you’re visiting for work, but also convenient for everyday travel because you are steps away from all the charming shops and restaurants in Old Quebec. The hotel itself was bustling with conference-goers, families and tourists just like us. I actually enjoyed how lively it was as the lobby bar was packed during the final showdown for the Montreal Canadiens during the finals.

The Hilton Quebec features 571 newly renovated rooms with views overlooking the gorgeous St. Lawrence River. If you’re looking to relax or keep up with your gym routine, there is a heated year-round outdoor pool and a 24 hour fitness centre on-site.

I flew back to Toronto last month to attend Paul’s cousin’s wedding in Kingston. They had this amazing pie instead of a wedding cake and we cruised into the sunset through the 1000 Islands.

But before the festivities, I booked a trip to Quebec City with my sister Amy and spent a fun week eating and exploring our way through La Belle Province and even stopped at this unique spa on a boat on our way home. Quebec City is currently ranked the no. 1 destination in Canada by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine and the walled city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure. Here are a few of our travel tips for Quebec City:

Getting There – From Toronto there are direct flights on Porter and Air Canada. Otherwise, you can connect from any other city via Montreal. Honda Canada was nice enough to lend us a brand new Honda CRV, so we chose to make a sisters road trip out of it. We left at around 10 AM after the traffic died down and the drive takes about 9 hours. We took our time, made lots of stops along the way including:
