Le Chateau Frontenac, Quebec City

This is a nighttime view of the Chateau Frontenac, a magnificent hotel in Quebec City, Canada. Originally built in 1893 for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, this historic building is now a Fairmont property. It played an important role for the allies in WWII, as the site of some key conferences and meetings. Parts of the 1953 Alfred Hitchcock film "I Confess" featured the Chateau Frontenac. It is, truly, a grand hotel. The ghostly flags on the right side of this image show how windy it was the night I captured this image!
