Planning a family trip and wondering where to take the kids for an overnight stay in Québec City? While most accommodations are family-friendly, some have special amenities designed to meet your family’s needs. Here’s a list of recommendations for where to stay in Québec City with family. 

  • Family Hotels in Old Québec
  • Family Hotels in Old Québec

    Staying in Old Québec is perfect for families travelling without a car or for those who prefer to explore the historic district and its various attractions and museums on foot. Of the many hotels in the area, some, like the Delta Hotel by Marriott Québec, Hôtel Château Laurier, Hotel Palace Royal, and Le Concorde, offer more spacious rooms, which can be a wonderful thing when travelling as a family. 

    Here are a few recommendations for family-friendly hotels in Old Québec: 


    Hilton Québec

    Located just steps away from Old Québec’s many attractions, the Hilton Québec is great for families, particularly during peak periods like summer vacation, the holiday season, spring break, and the Québec Winter Carnival. For these special times, children get wristbands that entitle them to surprises scattered throughout the hotel, as well as access to a games room and an arcade. The suites are exceptionally convenient for families, and some are even equipped with a kitchenette and a microwave. The year-round heated outdoor pool is also sure to please children and adults alike.
