Modern, approachable luxury redefines this historic hotel. Originally built in 1893, the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac overlooks the St. Lawrence River and Old Quebec. Rockwell Group’s renovations of the hotel’s public spaces called for the restoration of historic details and preservation of signature pieces.
Welcoming guests to the reception area are large back-lit blue onyx panels, inspired by the nearby river.
Furniture and finishes call to the Jazz age.
Retrofitted and modernized, the hotel’s original chandeliers are draped with wire mesh to filter the light, while the original Carte Blanche marble floors, dark quartersawn oak wall paneling and gilding were restored to their original splendor.
In the main restaurant, Le Champlain, existing paneling and stenciled ceilings are preserved while a palette of luxurious textured materials in muted hues of purple, grey and beige update the space.
