Acadia at the heart of Old Québec City
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.
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.
Savour local cuisine!

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.
