Le Château Frontenac, Quebec
Arguably the most photographed hotel in the world, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is an iconic presence in Quebec City and holds a vital spot in the city’s history. Inside, the hotel tucks away more than seven miles of corridors (enough to get anyone turned around for a while) and nearly 2,000 windows, including ones that overlook the Saint-Lawrence River, the cityscape or Château Frontenac’s interior gardens. Food is approached with thoughtful care, and chef Jean Soulard’s private garden (herbs, too) has a secret: Four beehives produce 650 pounds of honey a year. Take a seat at Bar St-Laurent for views and jazz. Rooms, from $194; 1 Rue des Carrières; 418-692-3861; fairmont.com.
