I stayed just near by Place d'Armes in November and went by several times a day, and I must say that it was beautiful both in daylight and at nighttime with all the beautiful christmas lights.

City square like in Europe. Clean, safe, and a place to sit and rest while viewing the surroundings. Has a tree all lit up for Christmas, it is beautiful and a must. Just sit and reflect. You feel the soul of the city here.

across from Basilica. A great place for a drink and view on the roof level or even downstairs in 701 on a brisk day. You feel like you are in Paris. This is also a hotel

It is a square with some nice statues on a water feature, Nothing more or less. Worth about 5 - 10 minutes of your time if you want to photograph things. The Basilica de Notre Dame is in the square and is worth a visit.

I had a little trouble finding the place initially. Although compact, it is very pretty. Although crowded, there was still space to relax. The view of the front of the Basilica by itself was worth the walk.

We came in for breakfast drinks on Saturday and came back the next day for Brunch both days outstanding. The manager and Fred the bartender couldn't have been nicer. Chicken and waffles and eggs benedict were outstanding.

Most of the parking near the Basilica is street, parallel parking. Also, I know there was at least one small lot a block from the Basilica.
