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
This hotel is one of our favs world wide. Amazing staff, eclectic, design, loved the room so much we just hung out and enjoyed more time than we normally would in a hotel. Bonus for the pool table and lounge area, we’ll be back.
As a very experienced traveler who has stayed at countless properties throughout the world, I wanted to offer a quick review of my recent stay at the Place d'Armes property in Montreal. I had a recent four night stay over a long weekend in Montreal at the Place d'Armes. I found every aspect of this property to be delightful in every way. The rooms were meticulously detailed, well thought out and entirely comfortable. Every interaction I had with the staff of this hotel exceeded my expectations. The staff were helpful and gracious in every way. The location of this property is ideal, directly across from the Basilica (the most beautiful place of worship I have ever seen - simply breathtaking and not to be missed), and with easy access to all parts of Montreal. This hotel offers a benchmark by which all luxury properties should be measured. My compliments to the staff and management of this exceptional property!
I recently stayed at this hotel for five days on business the hotel is conveniently located to old Montreal’s restaurants and charming cobblestone streets. The hotel staff where professional and courteous The room clean comfortable and large from the king size bed and hardwood floors to the ironing board in the cupboard with slippers and a bathrobe...multiple sprayheads in the shower definitely make your stay comfortable. Attached restaurant to the hotel convenient.. but very walkable to old Montreal’s huge selection of restaurants - it would be difficult to have a bad meal. It was also nice that the hotel lobby had a pool table, checkers, backgammon and chess set to see it enjoy by the fireside. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here the next time I travel to Montreal .
Traveling with another couple, we both agreed that we wanted to take the beds home with us. They were so comfortable. The location was great, the staff were very helpful. It was clean and charming. We stayed in a jr suite and the other couple were in a superior suite. I wish they had American coffee to brew in the rooms, they only had espresso, but we could go to the lobby and get a cup of joe, (which I sent the hubby after each morning : ). )
Good hotel. Couldn't give 5 stars because of some minor issues including no coffee pods on the arrival day, ac not cooling enough. Otherwise everything else was good including bed, washroom, location, dining and staff.
