I usually stay at this HIE while visiting customers in Quebec City. It is clean, fairly priced, and conveniently located for drivers. When I woke up I went to enjoy my complimentary breakfast, but it was impossible. There were two bus loads of kids waiting in line to grab breakfast, and it was very loud, especially for early morning. The loud line-up was unbearable, and there were no tables for other guests to use. I brought this to the attention of the woman at the front desk, and she basically was indifferent. Needless to say, I won't be staying at this HIE again. There are many options in the immediate area. ALL hotels should seriously consider their loyal, corporate guests before renting a block of rooms to schools, or sports teams.

First of all, I would like to thank you for your review. The month of May is pretty busy in Quebec City's hotels, with all the school trips who want to discover and enjoy the magnificence of one of the oldest cities in North America. As hoteliers we value the chance for them to discover a historical and charming city as ours. We are sorry for the inconvenience you had with the breakfast. We are always placing our corporate guests in different floors than the groups to avoid them being disturbed but we don't have this chance in the breakfast area. Our team is caring and understanding with problems that may incur.

Once again, I personally thank you for the time you took for writing this review.

As a PCR Plat member I was pleased to see a Holiday Inn Express opened up in Quebec City as there was always a gap between Montreal/Fredericton for IHG properties. So tried it on the annual road trip to PEI for a stop over hotel. Used PCR points and had a decent King bed room that was clean. Breakfast Buffet was on time and tasty. Lots of parking but in the summer its very full and I just barely found the last space. Staff were professional and friendly.

I've been through Quebec City many times so instead of staying downtown decided to try this HIX which is near the bridge and 5 min from the Trans Canada which is perfect for an easy exit from the City. But....if you want Old Quebec stay downtown, pay a cab, or try to find parking downtown as this HIX is 9km from the walls of old Quebec City.

Didn't like that there is not much within walking distance for food so expect to drive a few kms. Also this tends to be a busy HIX and was very noisy in the halls late at night when we were there.

Ideal road trip hotel minutes off the expressway and typical for a good HIX so don't expect more than that and its worth a stay.

Room Tip: Check-in early to ensure a parking spot. During the summer this is a very busy place

The hotel it's ok, breakfast no good. The room is big and clean. We chose it cause parking in Quebec it's quite dificult and they told us the have a bus to the city centre. The navette is only for summer and the rest of the year only the weekends. The reception guy during the night didn't know this and we were waiting in the morning but the navette never arrived. There is a bus near the hotel that takes you to the city centre in half an hour, but the bus stop is difficult to get to.
Ok but Quebec is lovely to visit.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Sorry for any inconvinces you had during your stay. We do have a shuttle but it is only during the summer season, there is no shuttle during off season. Sorry you were not informed of this. The city bus #25 is just down the street from the hotel, really just 2 min walk. Maybe you were informed to take an other. In any case, we're glad you enjoy our beautiful city and hope you return some day.
