Chateau Frontenac

The Chateau Frontenac is a hotel in Quebec, Canada. The video that accompanies the Google Map is taken from a boat on the river that runs through the town.

Designed by architect Bruce Price, the Chateau Frontenac was one of the first of a long series of "château" style hotels built for the Canadian Pacific Railway company at the end of the 19th and the start of the 20th century. It opened in 1893. The railway company sought to encourage luxury tourism and bring moneyed travellers to its trains.
