Quebec City is certainly one of the most romantic places for a getaway in Canada. Having just returned from a wonderful weekend there, we've compiled this report on some of the best places for to stay for a romantic vacation or honeymoon in Quebec City. Have a great time in the Old Town...
Hotel des Coutellier - a small romantic inn on the edge of the lower section of Quebec City's Old Town. If you're arriving by bus or train, this hotel is close. Romantic Touch: under the bubbles of the whirlpool tub in their Prestige Suite are multi-colored lights!
Our Experience - both Maureen and I immediately fell in love with this romantic hotel in the Lower Old Town of Quebec City. The deluxe hot tub suite is one of the nicest we have ever seen in Canada - perfect for a honeymoon. You also get continental breakfast delivered to your room each morning, as well as WiFi, flat screen TV and a Keurig coffee machine. Next to the hotel across the street is Le Varavin, a small romantic restaurant.
