Description: Located in the heart of historic, culturally vibrant, gastronomic and romantic Old Québec, the unique 4-star European-style hotel extends a warm and friendly welcome in an inviting decor and spectacular surroundings that have been delighting visitors for centuries. The popularity of the Hotel Manoir Victoria began in the early 1830’s. Named Hotel Albion at the time, it was located on the East side of Côte du Palais, i.e. across the street from the actual hotel. At the time, the Albion hotel, owned by Thomas Payne, was the best in town and a room was charged $1.50 per night. Later, the hotel name changed for Stadacona. Benjamin Trudel, owner of another hotel in Québec, bought the Stadacona in 1895, refurbished the hotel and named it “Hotel Victoria”.
