“comfortable stay in central location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

My hubby and I went to Montreal to celebrate our anniversary. The Place D'Armes was the perfect location. Walk out the front door and you are steps from the historic touristy part of town, turn the other direction and you are steps from a Metro stop which will connect you to the rest of the city. There are literally hundreds of restaurants within an easy stroll. We had the valet take our car when we arrived and did not use it again until it was time to leave 5 days later. The only possible complaint about the location was that it was not obvious where to stop to check in and unload the car (no portico or offstreet space), we had to circle the neighborhood several times to find a curbside spot to unload the car in the dark and rain.

The service was efficient, check-in and checkout were a breeze. Everyone was bilingual which was very nice. The rooms were good sized with a king bed, a small table with two dining chairs and a desk. The bathroom had a rain style shower head and a regular one. We both liked the minty bath supplies.

There are two restaurants attached to the hotel, we did not eat at the Japanese one but the regular one was awesome. I think that was the best dinner we had the entire time we were in Montreal. They did have a cold breakfast buffet which was fine but definitely not outstanding (cereal, pastries, yogurt and fruit). They also had a full menu at breakfast which you could order eggs and other hot food.

My wife and I usually try different places to stay if only because we enjoy new experiences when we travel. The exception to the rule is Le Place d'Armes in Montreal. We visit Montreal every other year, and look forward to staying here because the hotel is beautiful, the staff professional,and the service exceptional.

That pretty much says enough...

I had not been to Montreal in 2-3 years and the last hotel we stayed in, Hotel Nelligan, was sold out. So we decided to try its sister property the Place d'Armes Hotel. The location is as good in Old Montreal, and actually closer to the metro.

We were very pleasantly surprised! The hotel rooms are beautiful and very large. We were in a Junior suite and the room was just gorgeous. The electric fireplace added a nice touch and the room was beautifully decorated.

We were in the 2nd building (the numbering was a little confusing though...

The breakfast was not included but we had a great brunch on the Saturday morning at their lounge.

We also tried the Japanese restaurant In the hotel and it was fantastic! Not a huge selection of Maki rolls but it forced us to try some other Japanese dishes we never had before.

We did not get to try the spa much to my dismay... You can smell eucalyptus as we would get off the elevator in our floor.

Staff was friendly and helped me plan my shopping trip downtown.

Would definitely stay again and would recommend to others!

Dear Joaniemmm,

Thank you for such a lovely review. We are so happy that you were able to experience Le Place D'Armes hotel et Suites. Our Sister Property Nelligan is definitely a popular location and I am glad that we were able to accomodate you for this stay. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the Japanese Retaurant KYO, which just recently opened in June. And of course the staff at the front desk knew where the hot spots were for shopping and sent you in the right direction, that's what they do best on their free time! I will be mor ethan pleased to share your comments.

Warm regards,

Jennifer Fabris

We chose one of the balcony suites. The bed was comfortable, the room was very nice and big, the bathroom spacious and the walk in shower was huge. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is in good condition. We would definitely stay here again.

Spent a very comfortable long weekend in one of the executive suites. Had a view of the park over the back side of the hotel which made for a quiet stay and a nice view from the living area. The hotel is well located for walking in the vieux Montreal area, as well as surrounding areas, and close to the metro. The restaurant makes a beautiful cafe au lait in the mornings (Often a breakfast included rate can be found).
The bed was comfortable, and the main bath amazing with a rain shower and a giant soaking tub.
One negative was that in returning to the hotel one night there were some disorderly folks by the front door making entry awkward, and hotel staff were ignoring the problem. Nonetheless, this is a very good place to stay.

We stayed two nights, the 24 & 25th of Octdober, 2013 in room 3303. The room was very quiet during the nigh, 14 ft ceilings, plenty of space to move around and a large bathroom with a glassinned shower. This room was in building 3 which is a more modern room of the building. All staff were smiling all the time and were always ready to help out. Special mention to Nicolas, who was the hotel front man, valet parker and all around advisor for a good place to go and eat. This is the kind of person you want to have as a hotel representative. We intend on going back to this wonderful hotel.

This hotel is not only lovely and in a great location, but unlike the post before me, the service was great! Everyone from the front desk, the Concierge, to the cleaning service were helpful and eager to please. Upon arrival we asked to extend our stay by a couple of days and were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary upgrade on our room. This was our first trip to Montreal and it certainly will not be our last. Le Place d" Armes is right in the center of Old Montreal making sight seeing very easy. The staff was so helpful with directions, suggestions, and booking tours for us that we found our way without any trouble. The hotel is quaint but modern at the same time which fit us quite nicely. We would certainly recommend it and will not stay anywhere else on our return to beautiful Old Montreal!
