Best hotels in Trois-Rivieres

Trois-Rivieres Hotels

Canada’s second-oldest city, Trois-Rivieres is a vibrant, historic town halfway between Montreal and Quebec City. It has a strong laboring tradition, and its ordinary people are remembered in the museums and historic villages; well worth exploring. The modern era has also caught up with Trois-Rivieres, bringing with it shopping centers, a glitzy waterfront, and adrenaline-packed motorsports. There is also plenty to do out of town – its location on the edge of a wilderness offers a whole range of adventure sports.

Things to see

A good place to start is in the historic quarter of Trois-Rivieres, where you’ll find the spires and domes of the various religious buildings. The Rue des Ursulines is the city’s oldest street, offering a pleasant walk by the riverside. Its main attraction is the rather austere Ursuline Museum, housed within the cloistered halls of the former nunnery. More gaudy and ostentatious is the Basilica Notre-Dame-du-Cap, located just east of the center. To understand the industry of the city, visit the hands-on Borealis Museum, where you can explore the cavernous, underground lumber tunnels and a working paper mill. Or, if you fancy being locked up, visit the former jail, now operating as a museum, with tours run by ex-inmates. If you want to escape the city, then head out to the La Mauricie National Park, where endless mountains and lakes provide the perfect conditions for Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and kayaking.

Hotels in Trois-Rivieres

The hotels in Trois Rivieres generally fall into the budget and mid-range categories, with a variety of brand motels and independent guesthouses. Don’t be put off by the modest star ratings though – there are some trendy, chic hotels with every luxury provided, including full spas, fitness centers, and gourmet restaurants. Since they seem to have escaped attention, there are some great hotel deals to be found here. These exceptional hotels tend to be located a little further from the center, so if you’re looking for a convenient stay, then there’s a host of cheap hotels available in the downtown area.

Where to stay

The downtown area of Trois-Rivieres is the best place to stay for all the main sights and museums. Close to the waterfront, there are also plenty of restaurants and shops for a perfect city break. More upscale hotels can be found across the river, around the neighboring town of Becancour. Easy access to Trois-Rivieres is provided by the arched Laviolette Bridge. If you plan to spend more time in the wilderness, then stay in Shawinigan, where boutique guesthouses will provide all the comfort you need after an active day.
