FIRST LOOK: THE NEW HILTON QUEBEC
Quebec City, September 14, 2020 — Hilton Quebec is pleased to provide an early reveal of its new look and experience as it embarks on a new era of hospitality. Nearing the completion of an over $70 million dollar renovation, the hotel is unveiling the first images of its transformation including new contemporary public areas, restaurants, event spaces and re-imagined guest rooms as they will appear when it reopens after a one year closure, January 2021.
The Hilton Quebec is one of the pre-eminent hotels in Quebec City and will have been completely re-defined as we welcome our first returning guests in January 2021. This renovation represents the most significant investment the property has experienced as confirmed by the hotel owner, the Canadian company Innvest Hotels. “It is with great excitement that we are rapidly approaching the re-opening of property, our investment in the Hilton Quebec highlights our continued support of this amazing hotel, their team and our confidence in the Quebec City market” says James Wolfe, Vice President Asset Management of InnVest Hotels.
“We look forward to reopening our doors and welcoming back guests, our team members and the community,” said Jean-François Lincourt, General Manager of the Hilton Quebec. “Inspired by the beautiful city of Quebec, our guest rooms and public spaces are designed to perfectly meet the needs of today’s traveler, while offering an authentic Quebec local experience .”
A COMPLET OVERHAUL
Guests of Hilton Quebec will enjoy new rooms with a modern, elegant and warm look, showcasing one of the property’s main assets: its breathtaking views.
Each room offers an incomparable view of Old Quebec, the Plaines of Abraham, the St-Lawrence river and the Laurentian mountains.
The building’s infrastructure is undergoing a major makeover, including the exterior cladding that changes from concrete to a lighter and more durable aluminum. A prominent figure in the Quebec City landscape, the hotel will keep the same exterior appearance.
The iconic Hilton Quebec lobby, restaurant and ballroom are also undergoing a renovation that will give visitors and business delegates an impression of grandeur, warmth and authenticity. Renowned chef Simon Renaud, continues to lead the property’s food and beverage team and is cooking up a completely new culinary experience featuring the richness of the local terroir and its seasons.
