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
what an amazing location for a hotel....the receptionist that checked us in was so so helpful even whilst we parked out car she brought our bags up high stairs to our room.The room itself was petite and cozy
If you like a boutique hotel with character (we do) this place is great. Book directly with the hotel for free breakfast (yum) in the morning; we also had a wonderful lunch outside. Our room was big and comfortable, and the bed was nice. Hardest thing was that there is no elevator, so trekking to the 3rd floor after a day of walking was tough but then all the better to burn off the calories. Parking is offsite but nearby, so not an issue. The staff is extremely helpful, and we would definitely stay here again.
Loved the Auberge Place D'Armes! Have stayed in two different rooms on the property, both top notch! Very unique property. Great staff. Fun decor. Location can't be beat... Only one caution -- there's no elevator and the stairs could be troublesome for some. Not a problem for us, but could be for some. It's a dog friendly place, which is a bonus for us! We will definitely stay here again. Can't wait!
