As foreboding as The Overlook…

…in Stanley Kubrick’s brilliant adaptation of “The Shining,” Québec City’s castle-like Fairmont Le Château Frontenac sits atop a steep rock formation overlooking the Saint Lawrence River.

Fairmont Le Château Frontenac-01

Recognized as the most photographed hotel in the world, its “château” style allows for nothing but great pictures.  Its height and main tower’s copper roof is as iconic to the city’s skyline as the Empire State Building is to New York City and the Eiffel Tower is to Paris.

  • Gorgeous! Looking forward to visit Quebec City for the first time in a couple of weeks. It looks so charming, but Christmas seems to up the ante big time!

    • It is one of the most charming places you can visit. Bring layers as it will be cold since its on the water and very hilly. The restaurants and cafes are exceptional and the people quite affable.
