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. In partnership with local organizations, the Quebec City château will host activities ranging from free historical exhibitions to musical performances, and even festivals dedicated to maple syrup and chocolate. It will no doubt be a celebration to remember—and one would expect no less from a hotel with such a storied past.
“The château is more than a hotel—it’s an icon, it’s a symbol of our culture, it’s a landmark,” says general manager Robert Mercure. “I often refer to us as the Statue of Liberty for Canadians and Quebecers.”
The Château Frontenac was built in 1893 atop Cap Diamant.
