Accommodation in Quebec City

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Is anyone aware of some good accommodation in Quebec City? I've narrowed my ski trip choices to Whiteface and Mt. Sainte Anne. We're going from Dec. 17th until the 20th. I've found a great place to stay at in Lake Placid thanks to a member on these boards. Now it's time to do some research on Quebec City and decide. So far Whiteface is ahead in the race since they seem to have more runs open. The weather is getting relatively warm though and they're expecting 7-8mm of rain in the coming week so who knows.

 

Anyways, if someone cna recommend a place to stay at in Quebec City it would be great. We're 3-4 single guys and gals in our mid to late 20s. Outdoor hot tub is a bonus but not a must :)

 

Thanks

I have to add, I don't mind staying at the base of Mt. Sainte Anne. In fact, I think I prefer that as that would allow everyone in our group to hit and leave the slopes at their own pace. But I did call Chalet Mt. Saint Anne and they didn't have any specials or even packages. It's $1000 for 3 nights, which is alright, but Whiteface was half that price *INCLUDING* lift tickets.

do some more searches...I stayed in a 1 bedroom motel in Beaupre, just a minute or so drive from Ste Anne; the place had 1 bedroom a living room area with a pullout bed or 2 and a small kitchen with table.  I think it was called the Motel et Charley, good price, no hot tub.  Had myself and 2 boys, 19 & 20.  Couple of years back we stayed at a condo about 1k from Ste Anne and that was reasonable vs staying right at the resort as well, had a nice indoor pool and hot tub.  There are a bunch of options in the immediate vicinity of Ste Anne.  I am staying at the Quebec Hilton later in December, but My girlfriend paid with credit card miles so I have no idea about the cost.

There are a ton of reasonably priced roadside hotels near St. Anne.

Sure. I'm just asking if someone can recommend one of these "reasonably priced" hotels.

I do not remember.  I think I found it right on the Ste Anne website under lodging but I know it was not one of their properties.

On the main road going to Sainte Anne there are a ton of reasonably priced hotels within a couple of miles of the mountain. Dammed if I remember their names, they speak/write French, I speak/write Brooklynize. Not that I've ever had a problem communicating with the locals, just about everyone speaks English. We usually stay a night in one of these hotels either when we first arrive or the night before we leave to save a few bucks. Nothing fancy but they're clean & if you stay at one on the river side of the road a nice view. We usually do not stay near Sainte Anne but prefer staying north of QC near Stoneham ski area so I'm not an expert on what's available near Sainte Anne. First couple of times we rented a house that came with a cook that lived on the property. What a nice place & the cook was great (breakfast/dinner). It was a summer hunting/canoeing lodge but has since been sold to private owners. The last few times we stayed at a hotel near Stoneham (http://www.lacdelage.com/en/). Nice place that serves breakfast & dinner. It has a large indoor pool & hot tub with a gym & steam room also. Stoneham which is a nice ski area too is less than a mile away & it's about 1hr. drive to Sainte Anne with Le Massif a 1/2 hour further. We don't mind driving to ski, that's part of the fun, exploring the surroundings away from the ski areas. Lot's of things to do besides skiing in & around QC.

 

I don't know how the early season skiing is up there since we usually go mid/late Feb around presidents week. I can say that a few times we were up there New England was brown in Feb.but they were buried in snow up there. For the time period you're thinking of going I think either Whiteface (your other choice) or Stowe would be your best options. Jay Peak with it's water park could be an option also if you're into that sought of thing. You could also hop across the border from there to ski one of the Eastern Township areas nearby. Going to Whiteface your pretty much locked into skiing Whiteface but the other areas I mentioned offer more options.

 

Whatever you decide I hope you enjoy your trip.
