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
I frequently travel to Montreal on business and always look forward to staying here. I appreciate the convenient location and the way they have paired the history of Old Montreal with modern luxuries. Kyo (available by room service!) is also fantastic.
We had such a pleasant stay here. The hotel is beautiful and immaculate. The staff is very friendly, helpful and accomodating. Everyone was always smiling and you could tell they genuinely enjoy working here. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay very much and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. Highly recommend this for a long or short time in Montreal!!
This perfectly located hotel was sublime. From the moment we arrived (greeted by the lovely Sam) we were delighted by the graciousness of the staff as well as their attentiveness and efficiency.When we called the front desk for any kind of request, staff arrived before we placed the phone on the cradle. The valet service,which enabled us to go in and out throughout our stay,was so convenient and seamlessly executed.. The restaurant was WONDERFUL and very buzzy as was the overall ambiance of this hotel. Our room was stunning and serene and so beautifully appointed- I hated to leave. My husband and I loved our experience here and can't wait to return soon.
