All roads lead to Château Frontenac

Since Hubby wasn’t with us the last time we visited Quebec City as a family, he was determined to see and enjoy as much as possible in the short time we had there.

Hence, when it came to booking accommodation he chose to put us smack, bang in the middle of Old Quebec!

Chateau Frontenac is a beautiful building which opened back in 1893 for Canadian Pacific Railways. Their policy at the time was to appeal to the wealthy traveler by promoting luxurious accommodation.

An interesting fact gleaned from Wiki is that in 1943, Château Frontenac became the action center of the Quebec Conferences of World War II. Leaders such as Winston Churchill and Franklin D Roosevelt attended this conference to discuss strategy for World War II!

For our family it was simply the action center to mark the end of what was one of our most memorable, if not one of our busiest, holidays to date. At the end of a full day exploring we always knew in which direction was home so there was no… “mum, how much longer?”
