When you fill the form below it will go directly to Maison Doucet. This is the best way to find out exactly what accommodation types are available for the date(s) you want at the best rate. Bear in mind that booking engines charge a commission of 20% or more, to the hotels, so you can never compare the rate they quote, with the one directly from the hotel. Furthermore, search engines that provide online booking, work with allocated room quotas given by the hotels, therefore, the information they provide is not absolutely trustworthy, since hotels never allocate all their rooms to third parties.
