La Ville de Quebec

Quebec.  St. Lawrence River, Le Château Frontenac.
    The Château Frontenac is a grand hotel in Quebec City. Prior to the building of the hotel, the site was occupied by the Chateau Haldimand, residence of the British colonial governors of Lower Canada and Quebec. 
     The Château Frontenac, designed by the American architect Bruce Price, was one of a series of "château" style hotels built for the Canadian Pacific Railway company during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The hotel began operation during 1893 
    The Château Frontenac was named in honor of Louis de Buade, Count of Frontenac, who was governor of the colony of New France from 1672 . The Château was built near the historic Citadelle, the construction of which Frontenac had begun at the end of the 17th century. The Quebec Conference of 1943, at which Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt discussed strategy for World War II, was performed at the Citadelle while much of the staff stayed nearby in the Château Frontenac. 

Merci beaucoup, Isabelle!
