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
Hotel Place d'Armes was such a wonderful hotel at the end of our three week vacation. Room was amazing! Great location and extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff made you feel like you were so special. Concierge Sabrina greeted us upon arrival and always attended to our needs. We would recommend this is a must stay while in Montreal.
If you are in the Old City of Montreal and you do NOT stay here you've made a tremendous mistake. This hotel and its staff are superb. From Matthew, the valet/concierge who helped us in, to the front desk staff that included David and many others whose names we can't recall, to Vladimir, who helped us through dinner our first night at 701 Brassierie (and the maitre d and ENTIRE staff in the restaurant) to Rene' who managed to have my backpack catch up to me on our trip south from Montreal. What a wonderful place to stay. What a wonderful place to eat. What a wonderful place to be in the middle of historic Montreal. There are dozens of very good restaurants within easy walking distance and we did what we could to enjoy that. The METRO has a stop right down the street that provides you with access to many wonderful places to see - don't miss the Botanical Gardens and the Insectarium (especially if you have kids!).Go to the Montreal Archeological and Historical Museum as well to really get an understanding of what a grand and majestic place this is. What was our only complaint? Being the culturally cloistered Americans we are, we didn't speak French. But all those there spoke impeccable English. Thank you for a grand and memorable time. When we return we shall stay no other place. Thank you all - ALL! You made our first leisure trip to Canada a wonderful one!
We spent 3 nights here. Absolutely loved this beautiful, boutique hotel. The location is excellent (walking distance to all of Old Montreal) and the attention to detail from every staff member was second to none. Special thanks to Sasha and Sara at Brasserie 701 who provided exceptional service. We first enjoyed cocktails in the billiard lounge and then moved on to dinner which was delicious. Ambience was elegant and romantic.
This hotel and the staff are magnificent.
From the very start we were given a warm and professional welcome by Luca who went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and valued guest of the property.
His customer service skills were second to none out of any place I’ve stayed around the world and we are truly grateful.
The hotel is in a great location in the old section of the city close to many great restaurants and it really gives you a European feel.
Our room was beautiful,spacious and clean with an extremely an comfortable and huge bed and great pillows and linen.
It had a great balcony and a massive shower that would fit 10 people in.
This is an excellent place to stay and couldn’t rate it or it’s staff highly enough.
Thanks again guys
We were warmly welcomed and given a room overlooking the Place d'Armes. The room blended tradition and modernity and offered a quiet an comfortable respite from the excitement of the surrounding area. The common rooms of the hotel offer a nice place to relax with others around. There's a good buzz about the hotel. And the staff lived up to their welcome -- always helpful. I'll stay here again, and again.
