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
Just returned from a March break stay in Quebec City and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Auberge Place D'Armes. The three of us (2 adults and a 9 year old) stayed in the Loft room and had plenty of room to spread out and relax. No elevators but the walk up was a good counter measure to all the French food we ate! We purchased a parking pass for the City Hall lot which was very convenient because the lot entrance is only 130 metres from the front door of the hotel. Check-in and out was easy as there was no problem getting a temporary spot along Rue Sainte-Anne or Rue Des Jardins to get luggage to/from our car. Reception service was excellent and friendly. We booked online directly and enjoyed the included breakfasts in Chez Jules, the hotel restaurant. Also ate at Chez Jules one evening for dinner and it was one of the best meals during our one week stay. You can't beat the hotel location - we overlooked the Chateau Frontenac, and very close to the steps/funiculaire to the lower town, plus plenty of restaurants and shopping.
This hotel is right in the center of everything for the winter carnival. I stayed here for the carnival and I loved it. You can walk outside and have the toboggan, maple toffee, and much more!I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Quebec City.
Absolutely wonderful hotel in a perfect location. Room was clean, and we both loved the individually decorated room. Felt like we were staying in a real room instead of a hotel room we've all stayed at a million times. Location was right in the heart of everything, with shopping, amazing restaurants, and lowertown being an easy walk. If you're feeling lazy, cabs were $10 CDN to get anywhere in the city of interest. Attached restaurant Chez Jules was great. Good food and staff were super attentive. Had a dinner there with my partner as well as breakfast each morning, and all were great. Bistro vibe in the evening with a relaxed breakfast vibe in the morning to read my book and munch.
Can't wait for our next visit!
My friend and I stayed here Feb 27-Mar 5 and were very pleased. The location was perfect - very close to Chateau La Frontenac, the Funicular to Lower Town, the ferry and an abundance of restaurants and shopping.
Our room was fantastic - a comfortable bed, a fantastic shower with multiple shower heads. Their Chez Jules restaurant was a big plus. The food was plentiful and very good. When they realized we had to depart before the restaurant opened they offered to provide breakfast to go.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here if I returned to Quebec.
We read the reviews and chose Auberge Place D'Armes for its location and wonderful comments about the staff and breakfast. We were not disappointed. We stayed in room 20, which was huge, beautiful, CLEAN and romantic. The breakfast was included for reserving directly with the hotel, and each day we chose a hearty fresh start to our day. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or kind. They gave great suggestions for dinner and activities. The old clity is magical and a wonderful adventure.
