Overview

The Fairmont Le Château Montebello — situated along the Ottawa River in Quebec approximately 60 miles northeast of the Ottawa airport — impresses guests with its laid-back (yet sophisticated) atmosphere. Travelers can unwind in accommodations fitted with wooden furniture, cable TVs and large windows before taking to the great outdoors. This hotel offers activities such as skiing, hiking, golf and horseback riding. After you've spent some time outside, pamper yourself with a signature treatment at the resort spa — like a maple sugar body scrub — before cozying up by the stone fireplace in the hotel's main lobby. Recent guests also highly recommend a Sunday brunch at Aux Chantignoles' intimate French restaurant, describing the cuisine as "exquisite." You can also savor casual fare and cocktails at the Seigneurie Bar or at two other on-site eateries. If you're a Le Club AccorHotels program member, you can earn or redeem privileges, such as access complimentary room upgrades for choosing to stay here. Keep in mind: The resort charges a daily resort fee of $23 per person, which includes Wi-Fi access and equipment rental, among other extras.
