G. J.  JESSOP,  Manager Chateau Frontenac
Quebec, only walled city in North America, is a
holiday resort the year round. Capital of French-
speaking Canada, the 300-year-old city is an
historic landmark. Its intriguing narrow streets,
steep hills and architecture are of a romantic past
reflected in the outward appearance of the
Chateau Frontenac. Inside, the modern hostelry
that dominates Quebec reflects the graciousness,
comfort and efficiency for which Canadian Pacific
hotels are noted.
Summer attractions include golf, river trips on the
mighty St. Lawrence, motoring to such scenic goals
as Ste. Anne de Beaupre, the Isle of Orleans, the
Laurentians. In winter, the Chateau Frontenac is
headquarters of the Ski-Hawk Club, home of
French Parallel skiing. Ideal ski country, with ski-
lift and tow at Lac Beauport, is reached by direct
bus service. The Chateau Frontenac triple chute
toboggan slide and Terrace skating rink offer
exercise close to home.
Quebec City goes gala every winter with the colourful
Carnaval de Quebec.

■     ■:■:.;  y_y.-::::■;'■:'■'■■
The Gallic character and continental savoir-faire of old
Quebec is emphasized in the architecture, appointments
and service of the Chateau Frontenac. Here, dining is an
art, each meal a chef-d'oeuvre, in which the deft service
complements the culinary skill of the chef de cuisine.
Christmas and New Year holiday festivities at the Chateau
Frontenac are notable occasions in the calendars of "bons
vivants" the world over. Ceremonially dressed in historical
costumes, chefs, carvers, waiters, scullions and kitchen boys
march in procession honouring roast beef, turkey, the Boar's
Head and flaming plum puddings.
Almost as historic is the sports climax of the annual Winter
Carnival—canoe races across the ice-filled St. Lawrence
river. Hardy islanders, long used to the necessity of making
their way to the mainland, have brought this thrilling and
hazardous navigation to a fine art. Sturdy boats, specially
built for the purpose, are rowed or paddled in the open
stretches, dragged over tilting ice-floes to the next
open water.
Hockey, ice-skating plain and fancy, tobogganing and
sleigh-rides through the deep-laid snow of narrow, romantic
streets crown Quebec as the winter holiday capital of all
North America.

TORONTO, Ont.
Even Larger In 1958
Now under construction, a 17-storey, completely air-
conditioned addition will make the Royal York even larger.
Every amenity of the largest hotel in the British Commonwealth will be enhanced by the enlargement. Two outstanding new public rooms: the 3,000 seat Canadian Room
and the Ontario Room—capacity, 500; both outstanding
examples of the distinctively Canadian decorative theme
of the whole concept, and additional dining rooms bring
the total capacity of the Royal York to:
Dining    10,000 Meeting    1 5,000
33 Private meeting and Dining rooms
The new wing adds 400 air-conditioned bedrooms—all
TV   and   radio   equipped,   escalators   and   public   spaces.
Completion of the work in 1 958 assures Toronto's continuing
popularity as the largest convention centre, in Canada.
Modern Parking Plan. The 400-car garage at 87 Wellington St. West, one block north of the hotel's main entrance,
is directly connected with the Royal York. Motorists simply
drive to the garage, register and go directly to their rooms. The Royal York

:

BANFF, Alberta
.;;:
Banff Springs Golf Course—the mile-high links—is spectacular enough to keep a player's mind off the game, sporty
enough to compel concentration. Designed by internationally famous Stanley Thompson, the 6704-yard, par 71,
course is teed for good, medium and average players.
Clubhouse and pro-shop, five minutes from the terrace,
overlook the scenic lay-out along the Bow Valley and the
last seven fairways are within sight and sound of the
musically fast-running Bow River. From the 570-yard
"Windy" (number four) to the 138-yard "Papoose" (number 1 2) the whole eighteen test almost every club in the bag.
The attractive clubhouse—a few steps from the hotel — is a
very popular "19th hole". Lunches, teas and snacks, geared
to the golf- and mountain-sharpened appetites of club
members, and beverages to please connoisseurs are featured in the gay, wide-windowed club room that overlooks
the Spray River and the first and  1 8th fairways.

21 Chateau Lake Louise
Alberta
Chateau Lake Louise, 40 miles from Banff, but a
near neighbour in the 2,500 square miles of Banff
National Park, specializes in homey comfort. Near
the Great Divide, centre of a network of mountain
highways that lead to snow-capped peaks, the
Chateau overlooks the jade green lake for which
it is named. Broad picture windows frame Victoria
Glacier and the ring of mountains by which the
lake is surrounded.
Broad picture windows, too, bring Lake Louise
and its magnificent setting right into the Main
Dining Room where spotless napery, deft service
and cosmopolitan cuisine vie with each other to
tempt your appetite.
Well-marked trails, planned for woodland walks
or pony riding, lead to the mountainside beauty
of wood and stream, Alpine wild flowers.
22 Chateau Lake Louise
Alberta
Victoria Glacier
A magnificent sight, from the dining room, from the lounge,
from the terrace, from the swimming pool, from many a
bedroom of Chateau Lake Louise, is the famous Victoria
Glacier. Below the brink the detritus of countless thousands
of years has grown into the deep-piled moraine skirted
by the trail leading to the Plain of the Six Glaciers.
Reflecting the 400 ft. thick snow field in its jade green
water, the lake for which Chateau Lake Louise is named,
is born in the melting snows of this mighty glacier.
And  between  lake  and  terrace to delight a  diner's eye,
myriads of the  Iceland   Poppies for which  Lake  Louise  is
famous.  Climbs  by  easy trails to the Tea   Houses  at the
Lakes in the Clouds and Plain of Six Glaciers, riding and
sightseeing call for restful days in between. For these there
«
are   boating,   putting,   swimming   in   the   warmed,   filtered
glacial water of the glass-screened outdoor pool. And every
weeknight, dancing in the intimate, tasteful ballroom.

VICTORIA, British Columbia
The Empress is unusual—a metropolitan hotel in
10-acre gardens that are world famous—within
a stone's throw of busy harbour, Legislature, business and shopping districts, lovely parks. Victoria,
island capital of British Columbia, tempered by
Pacific breezes, boasts year-round golf, scenic
coasts, tree-lined drives and bridle paths. An air
of Old England, reflected in the tasteful stocks of
glassware, silver, woollens in specialty shops, is
emphasized in the Empress Christmas festivities—
Boar's Head and Yule Log ceremonies, carols,
waits, mummers in the old tradition. Renowned as
a citadel of the leisured culture of less strenuous
days, famous the continent over for its traditional
"afternoon tea" in the Main Lounge, The Empress
is geared to the tempo of today. The Empress
Coffee Shop, entered from the building or the
garden, has become a popular rendezvous for
those who have not the leisure to enjoy the stately
Empress Room, graced by a portrait gallery of
Canada's First Ladies.

Through the Empress Rose Garden, past the Shuffleboard
Courts, a flagged walk leads to the freshly filtered swimming pool in the glass-enclosed Crystal Garden. Tropical
palms adorn the Loggia, a popular rendezvous for tea or
light refreshments. There is dancing three evenings a week.
Massage; steam and fresh water baths; remedial exercises;
light and electrical treatments are features of the Crystal
Garden Turkish Bath.
Nearby Thunderbird Park is an interesting informal museum
of British Columbia's Indian culture. Colourful totems, a long-
house and highly-tinted carvings recall past grandeur.
Victoria's Famous Gardens
All Victoria is a mecca for garden lovers. Closest to hand
are the famous gardens surrounding The Empress. Beacon
Hill Park, a short walk from the hotel, offers many interesting plants. Farther afield, Butchart's Garden enjoys worldwide fame. Half an hour's drive from The Empress, the
estate contains rose gardens, a formal Italian garden,
flowery walks and a quarry garden hard to equal.
Empress guests enjoy the Annual Horticultural Show each
May when many private gardens in Victoria and Oak Bay
are opened to the public.
