Introduction

Built in 1870 and the oldest hotel in Quebec City, the centrally located Hotel Clarendon offers 143 elegantly outfitted rooms in the heart of the old town. With an impressive lobby setting the tone for this refined boutique hotel, many of the guest rooms themselves overlook the beautiful architecture of Old Quebec itself.

The hotel is a frequent haunt of celebrities, the most famous of which include Sir Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt. The hotel's Charles Baillairgé Restaurant boasts some great photos of Old Québec from the 1920s, with an art deco décor and atmosphere of a by-gone era. Yet the menu is modern and bold, featuring local produce and memorable flavours. And for a lively end to your night don't miss the regular live jazz evenings in the Clarendon Bar. With performances every weekend throughout the summer, this venue has become a legendary showcase for Québec's jazz musicians.
