Description The Chteau Frontenac grand hotel is one of the most popular attractions in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. The hotel is perched on a tall cape overlooking the Saint Lawrence River, thus giving a spectacular view for several kilometres. The building is the most prominent feature of the Quebec City skyline as seen from across the St. Lawrence, and is a symbol of the city.The Chteau Frontenac was named in honour of Louis de Buade, Count of Frontenac, who was governor of the colony of New France from 1672 to 1682 and 1689 to 1698. The Chteau was built not too far from the historic Citadelle,, whose construction Frontenac had begun at the end of the 17th century. The Quebec Conference of 1943, in which Winston Churchill and Franlin D. Roosevelt discussed strategy for World War II, was held at the Citadelle while much of the staff stayed nearby in the Chteau Frontenac.
