Just returned from spending five nights at the Place d'Armes. What a wonderful way to start our married life -- I wouldn't change a single thing about our stay or the auberge!
We looked at a LOT of reviews before selecting a place to stay in Quebec City, and wanted a romantic, charming spot (but not too "frilly," per my husband's request). We agree completely with the many other positive TripAdvisor reviews of the Place d'Armes and are so, so happy with our choice. Everyone who we spoke with was friendly and extremely helpful.
We were perfectly fine with having a smallish room, which ours (number 21) would probably be considered. It wasn't tiny - just cozy - and it was plenty of space for us, even with five days' worth of clothes and whatnot. (We had asked for a room with a double spa tub and a view of the Frontenanc, and those were our priorities over having a huge room size.)
It's true that there is no elevator, so obviously if having to walk up stairs is a problem this would be a bad choice. But we definitely did not mind the stairs, especially since we spent the whole week eating and could stand to have a little extra exercise.
The included daily breakfast at le Pain Beni was wonderful. We so enjoyed starting each day in that space drinking great coffee and selecting from the breakfast options. And because we arrived after dark on our first evening in town and didn't feel up to venturing out for dinner that night, we decided to have our first dinner in Quebec there. The only problem with it was that we kept wanting to return every night after that! The entire meal was delightful. (Try the black pudding, seriously!)
Parking down the street was not too inconvenient and was very reasonably priced. And we very much appreciated being told that we could drive up in front of the auberge to quickly unload and load our car at check-in and check-out.
Finally, we also very much appreciated the champagne that was waiting in our room when we got there!
Again, I can not imagine a sweeter, more romantic place to have spent our honeymoon. The Place d'Armes was exactly what we were looking for - I will miss waking up to the sun streaming in our window and lighting up the Frontenac, and we can't wait to come back!
