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
we arrived in the morning but at the reception we were packed our bags, when we returned to check in, the bags were already in the room, the hotel restaurant keeps full, it is better to book, we were in a room with a window to the wall but not it is so tragic because it is very quiet and spacious, I would recommend that they add hair conditioner, breakfast is very casual but good.
thanks so much to John and Nicolas, at frond desk, their enthusiasm and help are a plus for the hotel.
Fino alla prossima volta...
When we arrived at the hotel it is not easy because the street is closed, when we called to ask for information the receptionist went to the corner to help us with the suitcases, the receptionist with Latin accent is very helpful and friendly, the hotel is a real gem, the room super quiet, clean and nice, the restaurant has an excellent French variety, the bad thing about the hotel is that it has a lot of stairs, but the staff help to get them up and down...
This is a well situated hotel in Old City by Chateau Frontenac.The staff is very helpful. The included breakfast is delicious. I was there with 8 friends and they were accommodating storing our large luggage.
