Hôtel Manoir Victoria
In the heart of Old Québec’s Upper Town, Hotel Manoir Victoria recently completed an $8 million makeover of the entire property (originally built in 1830)—rooms, lobby, restaurants, and meeting rooms—blending 19th-century gracefulness with an updated urban chic vibe. Accommodations, which range from standard double rooms to deluxe suites, are dressed in a calming palette of ebony, gray, and cream with the occasional bold color accent, and feature iPhone chargers, rain showers, and pod coffee makers, while upgrades include amenities like electric fireplaces and living areas. On-site amenities include a spa, indoor saltwater pool, and fitness center. The hotel’s gastronomic restaurant, Chez Boulay–Bistro Boréal, has earned high praise for its thoughtful Nordic-inspired Québecois cuisine using seasonal, locally sourced, or foraged ingredients in dishes such as carpaccio of arctic char in an elderberry marinade with cattail heart and milkweed pod.
