Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu
La Malbaie, Quebec
This grand hotel built in French chateau style stands proudly atop the cliffs of Pointe-Au-Pic, surveying the broad expanse of the St. Lawrence River. Celebrated guests from movie stars to U.S. presidents have enjoyed the view and the quiet streets of La Malbaie below. La Malbaie is regarded as the birthplace of resort tourism in Canada, drawing wealthy Canadian and American families who summered here at grand estates in the 19th century, and our hotel harks back to that tradition. The original 1899 hotel built by Canada Steamship Lines to attract well-heeled guests to the scenic region burned to the ground in 1928. It was replaced a year later by the current property, built to evoke a French castle. Elegant guest rooms befit the hotel's 5-star status, with patterned carpet and upholstered valances, classically styled dark wood furniture, beds beds with wooden headboards and plush bedding, and tiled bathrooms with luxury amenities by Le Labo.
While you may wish to enjoy all the comforts of your room, complete with view over the river or lavish grounds, the lobby offers an inviting space as well—enjoy a cocktail or single malt Scotch from the La Brise Lobby Bar's extensive selection, or settle in with a book on an overstuffed sofa in front of the fireplace. Four onsite restaurants showcase regional cuisine in a variety of settings, most with a river view. Newly renovated Moment Spa offers relaxation with innovative treatments like an Elixir Ice Cider Body Wrap or a Warm and Cold Basalt Stone Massage. Guests can also take advantage of the large fitness center, three swimming pools, and walking trails around the property. A stay at Le Manoir Richelieu is an indulgence in luxury and a slice of Canadian history.
