Opening of Monsieur Jean – Hôtel particulier

In January 2019, a new hotel with a unique concept will open its doors in the heart of Old Quebec. Thanks to an eco-friendly vision, Jean Campeau, promoter and co-designer of the hotel carrying his name, orchestrated the project of the hotel Monsieur Jean – Hôtel particulier. Mr. Campeau wants to be “as local as possible” in his approach. The hotel Monsieur Jean has also been designed so that the residents of Old Quebec can enjoy the restaurant and the lobby, even if they are not guests at the hotel. The goal is to be closer to the community, and to be able to offer a different experience to guests throughout their stay, if they want it.
