Description: Tadoussac Hotel in Quebec is set in a prestigious vacation destination, long treasured by wealthy American tourists, was little-known by Quebecers until the early 1980s. However, over the years, Tadoussac Hotel has seen its popularity steadily increase, drawing tourists, specialists and naturalists from around the globe who come to watch whales in a superb natural setting. Tadoussac Hotel in Quebec, with its whitewashed walls, maritime colors, red roof, dormer windows and cupola marking the center of the building, calls to mind an enormous lighthouse standing not quite a cable's length from the magnificent sandy beach nearby. From the veranda of the Tadoussac Hotel, you can behold the St. Lawrence River in all its majesty. Looking upon this impressive body of water washes away the stress of the rat race, chases away the blues and leaves you with a feeling of peace.
