Fairmont Le Château Frontenac
Originally built in 1893 by the Canadian Pacific Railway to promote luxury tourism, the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac overlooks the St. Lawrence River and Old Quebec – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rockwell Group designed Château’s lobby as an understated, modern space with a touch of glamour. Le Sam is a more informal restaurant that lightly draws upon the Château’s unique history as a destination on the Canadian Pacific Railway. Rockwell Group’s linear approach to the floor plan is influenced by vintage train cars, while the furnishings and finishes recall Art Deco and the Jazz Age.
