Travelers arrive via ferry from Baie St. Catherine, crossing the fjord to reach Tadoussac. History is on display in the lobby where vintage photographs on the walls document the area’s past. Guest rooms are relatively simple but comfortable, with en suite bathrooms, one queen or two double beds, a writing desk, small table and chairs, flat screen TV, coffeemaker and Wi-Fi. The lobby lounge features seating around a large fireplace. Enjoy breakfast in the bright conservatory, where walls of windows offer full views of the bay. Two restaurants serve sustainably caught fresh seafood from the St. Lawrence prepared in creative contexts that draw on traditional local heritage. In keeping with its resort character, the hotel offers a slate of recreation amenities including tennis courts, two swimming pools and a full-service spa offering massage, body wraps and exfoliation with seashells and marine salts.
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.

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.
