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
Hotel is nice and the staff is friendly but I did feel you are paying quite an amount mainly for location. This cute hotel is located right in the heart of old Quebec and has such a historic feel to the rooms. They were clean and the restaurant down stairs is very nice. However, not much is offered besides the room. Parking and breakfast are not included. They did give us a free drink at the restaurant down stairs and a free champagne bottle because it was our anniversary. Not sure if I would come back to this hotel.
Great small boutique hotel, excels in customer service. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was wonderful. Very clean rooms, furnished nicely, great shower with multiple jets! Enjoyed our stay in Quebec and hotel's wonderful location, made everything walkable.
We decided to stay in old Quebec and leave each morning for a different ski area. We skied Massif, St Anne and Stoneham while there. This is the second time we have stayed here and booked the loft both times. Fantastic location, close to everything. Breakfast was very delicious.
Nice small hotel. Room was cozy and clean. Hotel restaurant was nice, good food. Only complaint was the door to the bathroom was glass, very transparent and within two feet of the bed. Would have preferred it been a solid door.
Cute and comfortable hotel. We stayed up in the attic which involves lugging the luggage up many narrow flights of stairs (no elevator). Once there though, the room was worth the trip. The room was nicely warm given the below zero temps outside, and the heated bathroom floor made exiting the shower quite nice.
Complaint would be the breakfast... go elsewhere. It simply wasn't good.
Would visit again, and even book the attic... but would pack a lot less next time.
