Quebec City/near outlying neighborhood options with a 1 yr. old

My family will be in Quebec City for a week starting the 6th and may be relocating here from Los Angeles... we are looking for good, family friendly options (from previous research have Le Café du Clocher penché, Café (chez?) Temporel on Couillard, Casse-Crêpe Breton on St-Jean amongst a few others for the city...) but we are also planning on checking out the surrounding neighborhoods for areas that we may want to live and are looking for recommendations there (neither of us are french speakers - though I just purchased the Berlitz tapes!). So far everything I have read is more concentrated on the city and we want to get a feel for how it would be to actually live here as well...

We are staying in the Marriott Courtyard in quebec city (only suite we could find - so taking recommendations on hotels with nice suites as well, if anyone knows of any in the city?!)
Thanks in advance for any advice!

  1. Hi, welcome in Quebec!
    About the Hotels, i am thinking about two interesting places: the first, more expensive(but with a good restaurant): and the second less expensive:

    About family friendly options: the ones you talked about are interesting (maybe not the Casse crêpe wich, in my advice, is to touristic). The interesting places to live in are not the purpose of this site and the administrators might intervene if i'd let myself go on on this. I could give you my email to give you some ideas. But if you give me more details about the kind of place you would like to live in, i could also give you a hint about good places to eat around those places!

      I was afraid that I might be overstepping my chow-bounds with the neighborhood request though I did mean for it to be food-specific (which might then lead to living options ;).. so hope the moderators are not upset with me... I am clickable at Also, thanks for the hotels - we actually tried the auberge though it was sold out, I will check the Saint-Antoine.

      Do you have another crepe option that you like better than the Casse crepe?


      This hotel is amazing, indoor pool, garden area. And just outside the old city near everything. When I fly people here I always book them here. As for food you will not be disappointed. The eats are great almost everywhere and now the colors are amazing. I live at the Mont Ste-Anne area. (St-Ferreol) and it's gorgeous now.
