Chateau Frontenac is an imposing building with five brick and stone wings and a central tower erected in seven stages between 1892 and 1993. It is located on a cliff overlooking the St. Lawrence River, within the Québec historic district. The original building burnt to the ground in 1834, and was not rebuilt for 60 years until the original portion of Chateau Frontenac was constructed. Nowadays, the Château Frontenac is a grand hotel in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, which is operated as Fairmont Le Château Frontenac.
