When it opened a decade ago, Place D’armes was the only boutique hotel in Old Montreal, and it still stands as one of the city’s most stylish properties. Lodged inside three landmarked neoclassical buildings, the property exudes old-fashioned grandeur while staying firmly rooted in the present. In the 133 contemporary guest rooms, tan leather sofas, arched windows, and hardwood floors provide an atmosphere of casual elegance. Only a series of exposed brick walls betray the building’s age (also adding an undeniable touch of cool), while perks like Le Labo bath products, Frette linens, plush bathrobes, and turndown service make guests feel pampered. The real pampering, however, happens at the 3,000-square-foot Rainspa, home to a Turkish hammam scented with eucalyptus oil, spacious massage rooms, and sleek pedicure stations. The in-house dining venues are also worth a try: Kyo Bar Japonais is ranked among Montreal’s best Japanese restaurants, and Brasserie 701 is a successful take on old-school Parisian brasseries with a menu of classics like beef tartare, foie gras au torchon, and escargots à la bourguignonne. If the weather is nice, don’t skip the rooftop terrace and its sweeping views.
In the Area
Old Montreal, which dates back to the 1600a, is enjoying a revival that encompasses great restaurants and design hotels. A couple of blocks south of the hotel is Toqué!, a required stop for gourmands, where local chef Normand Laprise helped put Quebecois cuisine on the map with dishes like crisp-skinned duck magret with black garlic purée. For fantastic seafood, take a stroll up the waterside Promenade du Port Vieux to reach Le Bremmer, where Food Network star Chuck Hughes doles out comfort food like lobster au gratin sandwich. Surrounding these culinary hotspots are gorgeous historic sites like the Notre-Dame Basilica, a Gothic Revival church from the early 1800s that towers above the district’s cobblestones.
How to Get There
Traveling with a teen was easy thanks to this wonderful hotel. The location is great, staff couldn’t be more kind or helpful and our split level room provided everyone with plenty of space and privacy. The room was very clean, quiet and equipped with everything one could want, including an extremely comfortable bed and linens. We also loved the hotel bar & restaurant.
My husband and I spent 4 glorious nights here in a Superior King. Our room, on the 4th floor, fronted the main street, and featured two floor to ceiling arched windows framed in the original brick. Plus another brick wall by the bed and in the huge, luxurious bathroom. I felt like I was in Ancient Rome! Wonderful bed, linens, toiletries, outstanding housekeeping. But in addition the Hotel Place d'Armes offers the most wonderful front desk staff I think I've ever seen. They were all so sincerely nice and helpful and so very kind. Twice we were offered the hotel's car, and we didn't even ask for it! This hotel contributed immeasurably to our wonderful Montreal experience.
We just had our wedding at Hotel Place D'armes. Needless to say, it was a perfect day. A day that we will remember for a long, long time. Our moments were filled with splendor and joy. All this would not have been possible without the absolute professionalism put in by Kim and her team.
One of the reasons we picked Hotel Place D'Armes was Kim. She was our X factor. Throughout the wedding planning phase, she was responsive, supportive and overall a pleasure to work with.
During the wedding night, everything went smoothly without any hiccups and Sarah and I were allowed to soak in the night and really enjoy our wedding day.
And hence we feel a whole lot of gratitude, gratitude toward folks like Kim, Julien ( who was hands down the best Maitre' D. He was on top of things and quick and responsive. If you decide to have a wedding here, GO WITH JULIEN! Our bartender Jp was also amazing taking care of us promptly and quickly. Kim was tirelessly working to make everything a success! We cannot thank them enough for making this day so memorable for us. The food was on point! We had rav reviews on the food. the hors d'oeuvres were amazing! The midnight snacks were a hit! everyone was raving about the poutine and brownies! They were so good! it was all consumed! i didnt get to have any :(
We received positive feedback from our guests to our suppliers. All my guests loved Julien and JP. Our officiant and DJ had nothing but good things to say about Kim as she made their lives easier.
We are sooo glad we went with Hotel Place d'armes! Its people like Kim and Julien and Jp who are absolute jewels! Yes the hotel is beautiful and yes the food was great! But people in the end remember how they felt! and everyone felt great ! because Kim and her team worked tirelessly in the back to make it so.
Its engaged and caring folks like Kim/Julien that made our night memorable. Because they care! This is a long review because it comes from the heart !
This is a charming boutique hotel right across from Notre Dame Montreal. The restaurants include a traditional brasserie and a lovely, high-end Japanese restaurant. Our goal with this stay was to treat ourselves to a fine hotel experience; indeed, we extended our stay because everyone treated us like royalty. And they accommodated that extension gracefully. Yes, there were updates in progress but I highly recommend the service here. Merci, dear staff. It was a memorable stay.
I loved this Hotel. It was close to so much and easy to. We were very comfortable. The staff was amazing. Especially, loved the Luca, Gabriel & Manfred!! Luca we LOVED YOU!! I would definitely stay here again.
