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.

I loved this hotel! Historic and personal but with all the modern amenities. The staff were very friendly and I would highly recommend it for business or personal travel. It’s a perfect location for sight seeing or getting around downtown. I will be back!
We stayed here for 3 nights for a summer trip to Montreal. As others have mentioned the location can’t be beat for walking and exploring the city. We splurged a king balcony room. Totally worth it! Alex at the front desk was especially kind and helpful. Wonderful stay!
