Located in the lower city the Auberge St Pierre has all the charm of a Country French Inn. The building where it is located was built in 1821 and formerly housed an Insurance Company. The Rue St Pierre was in it’s day known as the Wall St of Quebec because of the large number of banks that were located there. Many of these same banks are now other luxury Hotels.
The Rue St Pierre is one way you will come in from the Sault-au-Matelot. Valet parking is offered and there are two parking spots in front of the hotel for you to leave your car for the valet. Help is available if you need it with luggage.
The Auberge has 31 rooms and 10 suites. There are three categories of rooms, the classic, the superior and the suite. We had a superior room when we stayed and it was indeed superior. Our friends had a classic room and their’s was much smaller than our room. A warning though, our room was on the second floor and there was no elevator to our part of the building. If you have trouble with stairs you will need to make sure that your room is located where it can be accessed by the elevator.
The rooms themselves are all about charm. I have to admit our room was perhaps the largest room I have ever had in a hotel. It was wooden floors and exposed brick on the walls and what wasn’t brick was painted bright red and had crown molding. The furniture was painted yellow. It was all very Country French.
The rooms come equipped with all the modern amenities, flat screen LCD TV, direct dial phone, Wireless Internet access and coffee and tea tray. There is a business center if you have need of it. The bed had a feather duvet and feather pillows and was supremely comfortable.
We had two fluffy robes to use when we took a bath in our large jetted tub. It was a beautiful bathroom with a pedestal sink, two large mirrors, lots of soaps and shampoo and a shiny wood floor. The walls were tiled in tan and aqua.
Our room had a separate entrance way and a coat rack. It was just the most charming room we have ever had in a hotel, it was much more like a B&B. Speaking of which breakfast is included. There is a small menu for you to choose from and it includes omelets, eggs, crepes and waffles. You also get a free glass of wine or beer on the evening of our choice in the bistro.
The staff here is charming and helpful and they have a concierge on duty and everyone spoke perfect English. This is a fabulous hotel and I highly recommend it.
