The Grace of Monaco Suite at Fairmont Le Château Frontenac pays tribute to HSH Princess Grace of Monaco and her visit to Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, in February 1969, when she was the guest of honor at the 15th edition of the Quebec City Winter Carnival.
Located up high, the magnificent suite occupies an entire side of the hotel’s main tower and thus offers a grandiose panorama of Quebec City on one side and the St. Lawrence River on the other. It has several characteristic elements of the architecture of the Château, namely two charming turrets and two original decorative fireplaces. Archival pieces on loan from the Prince’s Palace of Monaco complete the decoration. In the centre of the private entrance hall is the armchair on which the Princess sat during the Regency Ball and which has been restored. On the left is the magnificent living room of the suite, which offers an office area in one of the turrets. On the walls of the room, you can admireposters highlighting the acting career of Princess Grace of Monaco.
The bedroom of the suite pays homage to the Princess’s timeless style and the feminine universe that characterizes her. Floral artwork made by the Princess as well as personal items that belonged to her, such as gloves and glasses, are on display in the suite. The suite has two full bathrooms, one with a bathtub. It can communicate with a second bedroom, if necessary, to make it a two-bedroom suite. This Fairmont Gold suite include access to the Fairmont Gold lounge and its exclusive services: private check-in, continental breakfast and canapés offered from 5:00 to 7:00.
