Hotel 71 Review: A Beautiful Boutique Hotel in Québec City

While visiting the beautiful historical city of Québec in Canada, I wanted to stay at a hotel that possessed a similar historical charm! During my research I came across a striking boutique hotel called Hotel 71. I was delightful to learn that this property used to be a bank many years ago, it’s quirks like the vault door in the penthouse that add to the charm of such a unique property.

Hotel 71 is located in the old part of Québec City. This part of Québec City is one of the most quaint areas I’ve ever visited. Hotel 71 is just a stone’s throw away from Quartier Petit Champlain which is a must visit part of the city that has lots of historical shops, restaurants and bars. Once we circled through the one-way streets a few times, we found the property and met an incredibly friendly valet who took care of our car.

The lobby of Hotel 71 offered a great first impression of the property. The design is comfortable and it’s design goes together well. Hotel 71 offers complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby. At check-in guests also receive cards for pay-as-you-go wine and spirit dispensers. A convenient and economical way to enjoy alcohol during your stay. After learning about all the ins and outs of the property, it was up to the 4th floor to see our new home!

This fourth floor room at Hotel 71 was massive! We had a corner room with views of the beautiful historical buildings surrounding the property. I like how the room was separated into a living room and bedroom by a rotatable TV. Hotel 71 rooms feature high-end capsule coffee makers and electric tea kettles. A bonus is that the room’s sofa could transform into a bed so feel free to bring your entourage!

The bathroom in this Hotel 71 room had a chic design with another notable feature. The bathroom’s door worked to close off the entire bathroom or simply the toilet stall. This clever piece of engineering intrigued me. The bathroom had a large shower stall and quality toiletries.

I must say that Hotel 71’s main a la carte breakfast was quite impressive. This took place in the comfortable dining room nearby the lobby. There were several great options to choose from. My favorite breakfast options were the Belgian Waffles and the Eggs Benedict. The sauce on the Eggs Benedict was the best I’ve ever had, and that’s saying a lot seeing that I’ve had hundreds! The first day of this breakfast was a little bit hectic so service was slightly slower. When the vacancy dropped the service improved significantly.

In the off season, Hotel 71 occasionally offers a continental breakfast a few days a week in another restaurant. The a la carte breakfast however was far superior in comparison.

All in all, I loved visiting Hotel 71 in Québec City, Canada. I felt like the hotel’s charm really added a great personal touch to our Québec City visit. A great majority of the service was fantastic while some of the service during the breakfast could have been improved. In the end, Hotel 71 has a lot going for it with its great location, beautiful design and lovely food. It would be easy for me to recommend a visit to Hotel 71 in Québec City, Canada!

Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu Hotel Review: A Perfect Quebec Getaway

My ancestors migrated originally from France to Canada, then down the East Coast of the United States. I’ve always been interested in learning more about Québec, where they first arrived from France, but didn’t have a chance to visit until now. One of the most memorable stops of the trip was at the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu. The Fairmont is located about 2 hours north of Québec City. Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu sits along the St. Lawrence River which opens up to the Atlantic Ocean farther north, offering some incredible views!

The Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu was originally built in 1899, then burned down in 1928 to be later rebuilt in 1929. The structure feels like a luxurious castle with its strong presence on the cliff, overlooking the water below. Just being at the property made me feel like I had gone to another era.

We pulled up midday to meet the friendly valet who was courteous and pleasant throughout the stay. The lobby of the property is grand and was already decorated in a Christmas theme. It felt warm, like a comfortable log cabin inside. Cozy but also spacious at the same time as it’s long and broken up into sections. After meeting the staff, I couldn’t wait to go to room 219 and see my new home for the next 3 nights!

When I walked into the room I was first drawn to the magnificent hot tub with its panoramic views. Incredible! The room featured a massive king-sized bed, large sofa, desk, lounge chair, tea kettle, espresso coffee machine, stylish bathroom and more. Although this is a very historic building, all of the rooms are updated with the most modern features, including USB ports bedside. There is also a massive closet that can store a whole family’s worth of belongings. Thanks for the champagne and chocolates Fairmont!

Their Le Table et Terroir Restaurant is located on the ground floor of the property. Le Table et Terroir is an all-day dining restaurant and has lots of tasty food that I really enjoyed. The front area of the dining room has stunning views of the surrounding area. During our stay we had the pleasure of enjoying three breakfasts and one dinner at Le Table et Terroir.

Where the restaurant impressed me most was at breakfast! All three days were incredibly consistent with quality of food and super friendly service at their buffet. The staff were all a treat to deal with and we got to enjoy the amazing view each morning. Every night before I went to bed I was super excited to wake up and eat breakfast. Please try their lovely crepes!

The Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu also has an incredible spa! We went for a Relaxation Massage. It was a perfect choice. The spa was much more extensive than I ever would’ve imagined and offered a very beautiful and calming atmosphere. Our therapists were true experts. From beginning to end, the massage experience was flawless. Gentle and caring with zero hiccups in service. To finish, we continued our relaxation near the fireplace in their special electronic massage chairs. Definitely a must try!

The fitness center had all the equipment I could ever want, and all of the highest quality. The gym attendant was right there whenever we needed him and was kind enough to bring us water mid-workout. The property also has other outdoor sport facilities including tennis and ice skating rink in the winter!

This property is fantastic in its own right but I also need to mention how beautiful the location is in Quebec. The area is full of breathtaking nature and quaint towns. There is Des Hautes Gorges de la Rivière Malbaie National Park that’s only 45 minutes away. We took a trip there and were really impressed by the scenery! Check out these photos!

Hotel X Toronto Review: Library Hotel Collection

While recently in Toronto, I had my first visit to Hotel X Toronto, which is a Library Collection Hotel. The Library Collection consists of four properties worldwide including New York, Budapest, Prague and now, Toronto. The Toronto property is fairly new and it was evident in many aspects of the property.

The stay got off to a great start with a pleasant greeting by the valet staff. Once the car was taken care of, it was time to check in. The front desk staff were also very warm and considerate. Hotel X Toronto is located a bit out of the city center but convenient nonetheless. There were parts of the hotel’s lobby which I appreciated and others I thought could have fit together better.

For the stay, I tried out a Library Club Corner King Studio Room which was sized at approximately 500 square feet. I liked the way the colorful furniture contrasted with the gray-scale used in a majority of the room. As the hotel is new, all of the features were also modern. From the coffee machine, to the outlets, to the TV, everything was high-tech and functioned flawlessly.

I overheard other guests in the elevator speaking about the strong water pressure in the showers, let’s just say that you can really enjoy the shower head’s massage setting!

As you can tell by the name, the room included Library Club Lounge access. Hotel X Toronto’s Library Club Lounge offers a continental breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres with alcoholic beverages. The Library Club Lounge is spacious and comfortable, a great place to relax or get work done. Overall, the selection of food was quite good during the day but the alcoholic beverage selection was a bit modest. As the hotel was new, some of the lounge employees might require a bit more training. Overall, I enjoyed the lounge.

As far as the property is concerned, Hotel X Toronto scores well. Even though a majority of the service was satisfactory, there were a few slight kinks that needed to be worked out, I’m sure this will come with time. My favorite features of Hotel X Toronto were the Falcon SkyBar, rooftop pool, Library Club Rooms and the giant fitness center. All in all, Hotel X Toronto has a lot to offer and is definitely a great hotel in Toronto, I would be happy to visit again. Happy travels!

From the moment I pulled up to the valet, to the moment I checked out, I was treated exceptionally well. After handing over my vehicle and checking in, it was up to the 19th floor to view the room. For this stay I secured a Luxury Deluxe Room with Ritz-Carlton Club Level access. From the moment I opened the door, I felt a sense of luxury. The room’s view was looking out at the CN Tower and surrounding city. The staff were kind enough to leave a tray of chocolates for our arrival, thank you Ritz-Carlton Toronto staff!

Just one floor up from my room’s floor was The Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge. The club lounge was definitely my favorite part of the whole property! The Ritz-Carlton Toronto Club Lounge has a super extensive offering including breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks and a fairly extensive food offering in the evening. What was special about this lounge is that alcohol is available from 11:00 AM all the way to late evening. If you like to drink and enjoy the finer things in life, this is the place to go! Throughout the entire stay, all the food and drink were fantastic.

Another area where The Ritz-Carlton Toronto excelled was with their fitness and spa facilities. The Ritz-Carlton Toronto has a residence which shares the gym with the hotel. There is tons of equipment so no need to worry about waiting around. When I finished at the gym, I headed over to the changing rooms connected to the spa. This area had a nice design equipped with steam rooms and saunas. Just next to the spa you’ll find a beautiful indoor pool, which has a timeless design.

For the evening we went with the chef’s tasting menu with accompanied wine pairings. Overall, the tasting menu provided a wide variety of dishes to keep your palate guessing. My favorites for the evening were the Salmone Affumicato, Pollo and Lampone for dessert. Along with these great dishes were several pairings of wine. My favorite wine pairing was the Lampone with Brachetto d’Acqui.

Miku Restaurant Toronto: Anniversary Kaiseki Menu Review

On my most recent trip to Toronto I hunted for a high-end Japanese restaurant to try. After much deliberation, I decided on Miku, located right in the heart downtown Toronto. Miku Toronto recently celebrated its 3 year anniversary with a special Anniversary Kaiseki Tasting Menu along with the option of sake pairing. The menu is made up of 6 courses, including dessert, showing off the restaurant’s best items.

From the moment we walked in, it was clear it was a very popular restaurant because it was completely full. The dining room is massive and to fill the entire space on a Monday at 6pm was impressive.

If I had to choose my favorite dishes of the evening, I would have to pick the beef carpaccio, foie gras, sashimi (specifically the tuna) and of course, the anniversary sushi selection. Out of the entire menu, the beef carpaccio took the crown.

We of course had to go for the sake pairing with each course. A majority of the sake was fairly smooth and fit well with the food. Along with the food and drink, we had a lovely team taking care of us, clearly showing that Miku offers excellent service.

All in all the evening at Miku was enjoyable. I appreciated the majority of the food, although there were areas to improve upon when it came to a few of the dishes. At the end of the day, the service, food, drink and atmosphere made for a lovely evening!

Four Seasons Toronto: Supreme Luxury Hotel Review

I must admit that I was quite excited to set foot in another Four Seasons property. My last Four Seasons stay was in Seoul, South Korea, and it was exceptional. This time around it was back to Canada and my second visit to Toronto. I’m a huge Toronto advocate ever since my first visit here last year. It’s such a quaint city and the people are so warm, I’m excited to be back!

My first impressions of Four Seasons Toronto were very positive. The building has a very fresh feeling, modern and beautiful. The hotel is located in Yorkville, one of Toronto’s most luxurious areas. I appreciated the stylish minimal design of the lobby and the way I was greeted by all staff members. We were off to a good start!

After a smooth and friendly check in, it was up to the 18th floor to set eyes on my Yorkville Premier Room. The room was spacious at a comfortable 48 square meters or 525 square feet. I fell in love easily with the luxurious style and amenities. The city view was also beautiful at all times of day and night!

The Four Seasons mattress and bedding were pleasant. The fact that the bed barely moved when my partner did helped with my sleep. The bed was complimented with a chic headboard that had beautiful patterns.

The bathroom was equally as gorgeous as the rest of the room and featured 2 sinks, a bathtub, shower stall and toilet stall. Beautiful.

Features that I took note of in this Yorkville Premier Room were the the USB ports next to the bed, bedside tablet, tea selection, and an exceptional turn-down service. The housekeeping staff did a great job tidying up and even left a few gifts including lens cleaner, mouth wash, mat below our toiletries and a wrap to keep all of my cords in order. Thanks Four Seasons Toronto!

During our stay we enjoyed both breakfast in the room and at Cafe Boulud. For the room service we went for the Eggs Royale and the Duck Hash. Both were extremely tasty. To accompany this great food we tried their smoothie selections. The room was a great place to enjoy a lovely breakfast with its amazing view of Toronto.

The second breakfast was enjoyed in Cafe Boulud. There you can find a 100% a la carte breakfast. Lots to choose from, great service and an atmosphere that works well both day and night. During our stay we made it a point to have a dinner there as well. From start to finish it was a memorable experience which you can read about in a separate article here.

On the ninth floor of the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto you’ll find the spa and pool. The indoor pool is truly exceptional in its design and reminded me how beautiful the one at Four Seasons Seoul was. Next to the main pool you’ll find a hot tub and a shallow pool for children.

Connected to the Four Seasons Spa are the relaxation and changing rooms. These rooms are some of the best I’ve been to recently and had a greater offering than much of the competition. These changing rooms were equipped with snacks, tons of self-care products, steam rooms, modern lockers, showers and lots of seating to relax. It was probably my favorite part of the property! If I was living in Toronto, I would definitely be looking into membership. Wink wink.

Just a floor below the pool and spa on the eighth floor, you’ll find the fitness center. I made great use of this gym throughout my stay with its large amount of equipment. Not only did it have dozens of cardio machines, there were also plenty of weight machines and free weights as well. If weightlifting and cardio aren’t for you, then perhaps you should give yoga a try in their beautiful and relaxing yoga room.

Another Four Seasons Hotel visit, and another fantastic experience. I might be slightly biased because I’m already in love with Toronto, but when push came to shove, The Four Seasons Toronto did an absolutely fantastic job in all aspects of their offering. The food and drink throughout the property were incredible, the gym and relaxation areas were extensive, all of the employees were very friendly, the design was exactly how I like it and the location was super convenient. Four Seasons Toronto is definitely a strong contender for luxury hotels worldwide and possibly Toronto’s top luxury hotel. A must visit!

Café Boulud Review: All-Around Amazing in Toronto

I’m not sure why, perhaps it’s because my ancestors were French-Canadian but for some reason every time I’m in Canada, I feel at home. On my most recent trip to Canada, I stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto which you can read about here. During the stay we had the pleasure of dining at Café Boulud which exceeded all of my expectations.

My very first impression of Café Boulud was positive. The interior felt relaxed and welcoming but also very chic and stylish. I love the way they blended the old style with the new. Our server was a gracious host for the evening.

There were tons of items on the menu that caught my eye but after much deliberation, I put together a short-list to order. My favorites of the meal were the house made pork sausage, the beef tartare, rotisserie chicken, duck leg, kale salad and the amazing dessert! Out of everything, the item that left the best impression was the duck! It reminded me of crispy pork belly as it had a perfectly crispy outside and a soft and juicy inside. The meat was so succulent and juicy, but the skin was my favorite part!

Café Boulud Review: All-Around Amazing in Toronto Blog Canada Food North America Toronto

The chicken was cooked in a very special rotisserie shipped in from France. As the meat cooks, the juices drip-down onto the vegetables below. I even got to take a look in the kitchen to see this impressive machine!

To finish off the evening I ordered the Grapefruit Givre which also knocked my socks off with so many flavors and textures combined into one lovely dessert. There was cotton candy on top, a crispy shell below and sorbet with jelly inside.

I had no idea what to expect when I entered Café Boulud inside of Four Seasons Toronto, but at the end, I was incredibly impressed! They didn’t miss a beat throughout the evening. Without a doubt I can highly recommend you to visit Café Boulud in Toronto. Try the duck leg!
