For the month of January, the Auberge Saint-Antoine in Quebec City is offering a free room (with upgrade) and heated indoor parking when you purchase two massages for $199. That’s a savings of at least $169. Auberge Saint-Antoine features free Wi-Fi, heated bathroom floors, Nespresso as well as full access to LeGYM, the hotel’s health and wellness area open 24 hours a day complete with a yoga studio and Finnish saunas. Certified personal trainers can also offer private sessions. The 95-room boutique hotel is in the historic Old Port, steps from the Musée de la civilisation, the Quebec Citadel, art galleries, antique shops, high-end shopping and chic cafés. To book, call the hotel directly: 1-888-692-2211.

The stately 19th-century façade of the St.-Antoine doesn't give away what’s behind it: a modern boutique hotel, complete with sharply dressed concierges and an up-tempo lobby soundtrack. But the history of the former maritime warehouse is inscribed in its walls. Shards of blue delft and ancient vial stoppers—all uncovered during the renovation—are displayed in vitrines throughout the lobby. In brisk weather, blazes roar in the lounge’s sleek stone fireplaces. In front of them, children play backgammon while their art director parents relax on pillow-strewn sofas, drinking wine. Past-present juxtapositions continue in the rooms and suites, furnished with a mix of European antiques and contemporary pieces; the bathrooms have huge soaking tubs. The rustic-chic restaurant, Panache, in a barnlike room with hand-hewn beams, stands out for its simple Québécois interpretations of seasonal foods: tender venison rib or hare with yellow beets cooked en cocotte.


Room to Book: Luxe with Terrace rooms, for the best nighttime views of the old walled city.

Insider Tip: The bartender in the lobby puts a local spin on traditional drinks. Apple mojito, anyone?

Plus its ranked 3rd in Canada. Only 10 hotels made the list for this country. T+L 500 List. The Auberge is not in the Top 25, not really sure where its ranked though.


So if your looking for a romantic getaway for a few days with the wife or girlfriend, check it out. She will be happy with the massage ;)
