Hotel Acadia welcomes you at the heart of Old Québec City, a destination recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located a few steps from the St. Louis Gate (Porte St-Louis) and the Tourny Fountain, the three pavilions of the hotel are ancestral homes built back at the beginning of the 18th century. The 40 rooms blend in seamlessly with the two-hundred-year-old decor and historical style of the buildings and have been enhanced with a touch of modernity for increased comfort. Each room has its own characteristics, making every trip a new experience.

A family company

Hotel Acadia is also the story of a family company. Founded by Jacques Côté with the purchase of the Maison Acadienne in 1982, the hotel has grown in importance over the years. In 1995, the property at 45 St-Ursule Street was bought in order to be rented out as apartments. In 2001, the son and daughter of Mr. Côté took over the management of the hotel. The new owners continued to buy new property and the company continued to thrive.

What to do during your visit to Québec City

A stroll through the streets of the old city is a wonderful opportunity to admire the sights of this four-hundred-year-old destination. From Hotel Acadia, it's easy to get around on foot.

Québec City was founded at Place Royale by Samuel de Champlain in the 1600s. Make the most of your trip and make some time to see one of the oldest churches in North America. The Petit Champlain district is also worth a look. This spot with particular appeal is reminiscent of some locations in Europe and is characterized by shops stocked with local products and restaurants and bistros which offer menus inspired by and featuring homegrown ingredients.

You could also head over to the Dufferin Terrace for a breathtaking view of the St. Lawrence River. While you’re there, don’t forget to snap a picture in front of the famous Château Frontenac hotel.

After a short walk from the Terrace you’ll reach the Plains of Abraham, a large park that was the site of the famous battle between the British and French armies in 1759. Today this place is ideal for a stroll or a picnic. And since you’re in the area, why not drop by the Citadelle to learn more about Quebec’s history?

To make the most of the culture and delicious food of Québec City, try out St-Jean Street. This always-lively street is one of the city’s most visited. A variety of shops, restaurants and pubs as well as concert venues make it one of the most happening spots in the city.

Where to eat

The choice of restaurants is abundant in Québec City. Be sure not to overlook the restaurant right inside Hotel Acadia when you’re trying to decide on a pleasant spot to get a great meal. Expect a friendly ambience at Le Feu Sacré and savour its specialties – grilled meats, fish, seafood and steak. In fact, the quality of the steak is exceptional; the cuts are from Northbridge Farms in Alberta, tender and aged in house. And for group events, patrons can reserve the restaurant’s private room, accommodating 15 to 24 diners.
