I stayed 2 nights at Four Points Lévis on a low cash rate during the holidays with a last-minute booking.  I did not have very high expectations this being a Four Points in a distant suburb of Québec City, but I came out pleasantly surprised.  

Room

Upon check-in I was not offered a suite upgrade despite seeing availability online.  When I asked about how they normally handle Platinum upgrades, I was told that they had suites available on the 2ndor 3rdfloor but that they had not finished renovating those two floors.  My assigned room was on a renovated floor (9th) and they recommended that I take this room but that I could also get a suite if I preferred having extra space rather than a renovated room.  I went along with their recommendation and kept the entry level room. 

The renovated rooms are quite nice indeed.  I liked the fake wood floors as opposed to aging hotels that have carpets – it gives a cleaner look to the room.  The bathroom was also well done with a modern look.

Dining

The hotel does not have a restaurant but it is attached to a Cosmos restaurant which operates independently from the hotel. People not familiar with Québec City probably do not know about the Cosmos restaurant chain (4 in the Québec City area) but this restaurant offers good quality food, an interesting menu, attractive décor, for all three meals of the day and it quite popular for locals. On the Saturday evening that I was there, they even had a live band and a small dance floor with lively atmosphere near the bar of the hotel.  This is not a “cheap eat” kind of restaurant by any means and it is not the kind of restaurant that I would expect to prepare my breakfast at a Four Points hotel, but this is the arrangement that the 4P Lévis has.  Instead of having the full choice of any item on the Cosmos menu there are 5 choices, but nonetheless the end result is a much higher quality breakfast than you can expect in any 4P hotel in North America, at least based on those that I have been to.

Location

The location of the hotel is possibly the only negative I can think of for this hotel.  If you are coming as a tourist you are on the wrong side of the river and going to the old town is not close at all.  At least you get free parking at the hotel.

Overall

Overall this is a surprisingly good 4P particularly with refreshed rooms.  I paid less than $85 USD for a room there which is awesome value given free breakfast for two as a Platinum benefit at the Cosmos restaurant.  I suspect rates are higher in the summer but most likely still at a significant discount compared to being closer or in the Old Town for example the Marriott.
