We planned to spend the night in “Chateau Frontenac”, but so did a lot of other people… luckily we found a room in another exclusive hotel – “Lowes La Concorde”. We had our breakfast at “L’Astral” restaurant at the top of the hotel – an amazing experience for the kids.
We usually book our hotel rooms in advance, but we didn’t make such arrangements for the first 2 nights. Well, that was a big mistake. We started driving in the direction of Quebec City that evening, and decided to stop at the town of Kingston – the gate to the thousand islands – and naturally, because of the autumn season, all the hotels and motels were full. We couldn’t find a vacant room even in the next town, and the town after that. So we drove around with the kids till 22:00, eventually settling on a small lousy room, and hour drive from Montreal.
Take my advice – book in advance, especially if you are traveling with kids.
