We drove from Calgary to Quebec City and back again. This was our penultimate stop and the last of 18 facilities that we stayed at that were new to us. Most of them were reasonably comparable price-wise and we would rate it among the top three of our stays, no question.
Beyond the usual amenities one comes to expect at a Best Western (spacious clean rooms, ample parking, nice bath facilities, etc. etc.), there were several extra perks that pushed it over the top in our opinion. The complimentary breakfast was easily the best we had... all the hot items (eggs, sausages, hash browns) were of high quality and fresh, there were more juice options available than usual, a fruit salad bar and great bagels and muffins. The bonus was real cutlery! In the early evening, there is the added bonus of soup, veggies and dip and other nibblies available as well. The chicken noodle soup was excellent... two bowls worth for this guy! Finally, the pool area is attractive and the hot tub had good jet power to ease those aching muscles. In our limited interactions with staff, we found them courteous, amiable and excellent to deal with.
The hotel is nicely located in the south end of town near the University and easily accessible to the Trans-Canada highway. There can be traffic issues there during rush hours but nothing compared to what you'd experience in the core.
If ever we return, we'll positively stay here. less
