Looking for a wheelchair accessible hotel in Quebec City, Canada? Accessible hotel rooms with roll-in showers are available at Delta Hotels Quebec, a Marriott hotel located in the heart of downtown. During a short visit to the province’s capital city, I had the opportunity to stay at the hotel and found my room to be adequately accessible. Quebec City has only a few truly accessible hotels, and Delta Hotels is one of the best.
Reservation & Check-in
Accessible hotel room reservations can be made via the Delta Hotels website. Room rates typically fall in the range of $120 to $200 Canadian Dollars (~$92 to $154 USD) per night. Prices may be higher or lower depending on demand and events in the city. A sample date, selected six months from the date of this article, presented a room rate of $149 CAD (~$115 USD).
When we arrived at the hotel, our wheelchair accessible van was taken by the valet. The cost of valet parking is $24 CAD (~$19 USD) per day. We took the elevator up to the lobby, and proceeded to check-in. There was no line and the process took only a few minutes. The front desk agent offered a bellman to help with my bags, but I declined.
Wheelchair Accessible Hotel Room
My accessible hotel room was located on the seventh floor and included a king size bed with a roll-in shower.
The room’s interior was spacious, with plenty of room to maneuver in my power wheelchair. The bed was accessible on all sides, and stood at a height of approximately 26 inches. It was comfortable, with a soft duvet blanket and fluffy pillows. A fantastic place to rest after a full day of exploring Quebec City!
Reading flights and lamps next to the bed were within reach and easy to operate. Power outlets were also easily accessible and located above each bedside nightstand. Electricity in Canada is delivered at 120 volts and uses the same outlet design as the United States. Travelers from outside North America will need to use a step-up power transformer to charge wheelchairs that require 220-240V. Please see the FAQ on charging a power wheelchair abroad.
The large window allowed a lot of natural light into the room. Many hotel rooms are exceptionally dark, so this was a nice surprise. A large armoire offered a place to hang my clothes, and a low-height drawer next to the desk was also accessible.
The desk had a rolling chair which was easy to move out of the way. The desk itself was placed at an accessible height, allowing me to safely roll underneath without injuring my knees.
Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom
The en suite bathroom was modern, clean and highly accessible.
The bathroom sink had space for my wheelchair to roll underneath the wash basin, and the water faucet was easy to turn on. Space around the toilet allowed me to park my wheelchair directly alongside. The grab bar, which folded down from the wall, offered support for a safe, lateral transfer.
The roll-in shower took cues from the U.S. ADA Standards, with a shower seat securely attached to the wall. Other accessibility features included a grab bar, handheld shower head and an easy-to-use water control fixture, all within reach. The floor of the shower was level with the rest of the bathroom, and the shower drained well.
In addition to the built-in shower seat, the hotel provided a portable shower chair. I ended up using the portable one, because I thought the built-in seat surface was too small. It was great to have a choice!
Quebec City is a wonderful place, with so much history and beauty to explore. My trip was short, and I returned home with so much left to see and do. When I make my return journey, Delta Hotels Quebec will be the place I stay. The accessible room met all of my needs and the location was fantastic.
