Housed in the former home of a 19th-century prime minister and within view of the famed Chateau Frontenac, Auberge Place D’Armes provides a historic, homey stay in Quebec City. This 21-room inn has some of the most welcoming rooms in town, many with exposed ancient brick paired with modern furnishings and unique pieces. For an indulgent all-out Francophile experience, book the Marie Antoinette Suite, which has 17th-century stone walls, crystal chandeliers and actual pieces from Versailles.
In the Area
Award-winning architectural gem Musée de la Civilisation houses a valuable collection that links past, present and future. Also in the Old Port district, Petit-Séminaire Chapel features trompe-l’oeil painted walls, ceilings and columns. The chapel’s Second Empire interior resembles the Trinity Church in Paris, with white marble altars, red cherry woodwork and ceramic tiled floors. Located at the site where Samuel de Champlain founded North America’s first permanent French settlement in 1608, historic Place-Royale forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage district of Old Quebec. On the wings of a $380 million investment, the historic St.-Roch district has been revitalized into a vibrant neighborhood with plenty of boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
How to Get There
Our first visit to Quebec City and it could not have been better. The staff was extremely friendly and always eager to help answer questions or offer recommendations. The property was in an ideal location for site seeing, shopping, walking or just people-watching. Chez Jules served a great breakfast in a relaxing atmosphere and there was plenty to see and do just steps outside the entry. We would definitely recommend Place D'Armes and will stay there on future trips.
In the heart of Quebec City, pretentious, overpriced, underwhelmed. Small check in desk that also serves as the hostess station for their restaurant. Check in staff was pleasant and helpful but the facilities were cumbersome. The staff in the restaurant were not happy to be there, food was cold meal would have been good if served hot. Overall good but next visit I will stay somewhere a little further from city center.
Room was very nice and tastefully decorated. Excellent location in central Vieux Quebec! When there was a problem with a window covering, it was fixed immediately. Loved the old-world ambience! Recommend it highly!
The hotel is beautiful, clean, comfortable. The decoration is amazing. I love staying and would love to come back! The personnel was very helpful. The location is just perfect, close to the most important and turistic places and restaurants.
Our trip was the perfect romantic getaway. The hotel was in the center of old town which made it easy to get everywhere. The room had a great eclectic feel and the staff was friendly and gave wonderful suggestions on local restaurants. I would highly recommend Auberge Place d'Armes to anyone visiting the area.
