At a Glance

Nestled in the lower town, Le Germain Dominion champions a relaxed vibe, and low-key travelers who appreciate a more modern design will find the interiors—and especially the lobby—preferable to those at the Saint Antoine.


In the heart of the Lower Town (and blissfully away from the crowds), Le Germain Dominion is a wonderful boutique option for couples or those with older children. The contemporary lobby manages to be cozy thanks to sleek black fireplaces that blaze during the winter months, plush black-and-white couches and a number of nooks and crannies perfect for cuddling up with a good book.

While modern in design, the property has a lengthy history. The current structure is the union of two buildings: the first skyscraper in Québec City (at nine floors tall) and the former stock exchange. Design elements like bank vault doors and old photography speak to the buildings’ previous uses.

Of the 60 rooms, very few are alike. In order to preserve the historical integrity of the building, the hotel was unable to standardize the rooms in the way that most modern hotels do. Because of this, specific room requests are hard to guarantee—one can only put in a request for a room overlooking the St. Lawrence river, or for one of the five rooms that feature an industrial-chic exposed brick wall. And while there are no connecting rooms for families, a rollaway can be added upon request.

Throughout, the accommodations are very comfortable. Featuring contemporary décor that cannot be found elsewhere in the city, all the rooms abide by a black-and-white color scheme, complete with graphic headboards printed with the building’s imposing façade. Modern touches include Molton Brown toiletries, black-marble bathrooms, Nespresso machines and complimentary wireless internet.

While there is no restaurant on property, the hotel offers round-the-clock room service and serves a light breakfast in the lobby. During the summer, guests can lounge and enjoy cocktails on the terrace adjacent to the lobby. There is a small but capable gym on property, and in-room massage services are available upon request.

Who Should Stay

Younger couples who appreciate an edgier design—and who can sacrifice a few amenities (spa, restaurant)—will love the Dominion. The property is also a good choice for those on a budget.
