Fairmont Le Château Frontenac has received a $75 million overhaul that will be fully revealed next month. All 611 guestrooms have been renovated, while the Spa du Chateau has been built from scratch with seven treatment rooms and signature treatments.
Rooms have been updated with contemporary luxuries and Fairmont Gold, the Château’s boutique hotel product, has increased its room count from 46 to 60.
Guests staying on the top floor can enjoy stunning views of Québec City and the St. Lawrence River, and Fairmont Gold members are privileged to the newly enlarged private lounge, dedicated Concierge and a deluxe continental breakfast and evening canapés.

The hotel’s signature restaurant, Champlain, boasts an innovative menu of Québec cuisine, while Bistro Le Sam serves creative dishes, afternoon tea and cocktails. The 1608 Wine & Cheese Bar hosts a wide variety of local cheeses, all matured inside the hotel’s dedicated cheese room, all suited for the selection of wines on offer by the glass.
Design firm Wilson Associates and Rockwell Group were selected to lead the project. Wilson, whose past design projects have included The Fairmont Monte Carlo, The Langham Hong Kong and Four Seasons Hotel Sydney oversaw the guestroom, corridors and banqueting and meeting areas.
