Canada – Historic District of Old Québec

Located within the walls of Old Quebec, the Château Frontenac is a hotel with a glamorous and storied history.

The Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, one of Canada’s most iconic hotels, will mark its 125th anniversary in 2018 with a year-long program of celebrations.
