Chateau Frontenac plans an extensive renovation
Quebec City’s iconic Chateau Frontenac hotel is undertaking a $66-milllion upgrade that will transform guestrooms, the main lobby and other areas.
The hotel’s revitalization involves the renovation of 618 guestrooms; expansion of the Fairmont Gold floors; full transformation of the main lobby; expansion of the health centre; an entirely renewed restaurant service offering; and continuation of the masonry work and roof replacement, as well as showcasing heritage elements through the inclusion of historical artefacts and creations by Quebec artists.
In addition, the renovations will create considerably more banquet space.
All of the work will be undertaken this year. Certain aspects, such as the masonry and roofing work, are already underway.
Plans call for the unveiling of the “New Chateau” during the 2014 Quebec Winter Carnival.
