Re: Lodging Info Help - PEI & Quebec City
In Quebec City you cannot stay (or ride) within the Old City walls. That, of course, includes the "castle" hotel you mention, Fairmont le Chateau Frontenac. Thanks, Loud Pipes, for screwing up for all of us!
I ride there quite often and usually stay in one of the hotels on Grande Allee Est. I suggest that you use a good reservation site. I personally use Booking.com extensively. Use their map view to select a place that is within walking distance of the Old City.
Grande Allee is great because there are many restaurants, meaning that you can check in, leave your bike and go drinking and eating for the night.
Remember that, very much like in European cities, parking is at premium in QC. You will wind up either in an underground garage or in a tiny lot in the courtyard. It may be a bit of an experience if you are used to the unlimited wide parking spaces of the US.
Depending on how early you make reservations and if you select cancel-able or non-cancel-able booking, nice hotels in QC will run between $150-250 for the night. If unsure about motorcycle parking, call the property. I found that Canadians are willing to bend over backward to accommodate a moto rider.
The places where I stayed in the past and can recommend in that Grande Allee Est city block are: Chateau Laurier, Le Concorde and Place Grande Allee Hotel - in that order. There are many more locations further westbound, but for a one-night visit I always want to be close to Old City.
I hope that helps. Robert.
