We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in September 2012. We had just arrived from the big city lights of Montreal and we were immediately taken with the somewhat more quaint Quebec city and Auberge Place d'Armes.
We arrived on the same day as an international cycling tournament so finding the hotel was a little bit of a challenge. However, the hotel did email us a couple of days beforehand informing us that certain roads would be closed and providing us with an alternative route.
Upon arrival we asked the hotel about parking options and they provided prices for either valet parking or a nearby public car park. We opted to park the car ourselves in the parking lot as this was significantly cheaper than using the hotel valet and really no hassle.
We had the attic room which was on the top floor. It was 53 steps up as the hotel has no lift but the receptionist was very helpful and carried one of our suitcases up for us (I volunteered my husband to take the second one!) The room itself was very charming with a lovely bed and a really great modern bathroom. It was on the small side, but this was expected from a loft room. The only slightly disappointing thing was that there was no view whatsoever.
The breakfast in the hotel was really lovely and I splurged on the waffles with maple syrup and fruit (yum!) We also ate at the restaurant that is adjoined to the hotel in the evening. We had a really pleasant meal here and the chocolate dessert was absolutely to die for !!!!!! The waitress at the restaurant was so lovely and talked to us at length about the local area. She really appreciated that we tried to speak some french and seemed genuinely happy that we had tried and was very patient with mistakes.
The location is absolutely superb, within easy walking distance of the promenade near the hotel Frontenac (now that looks like a decadent hotel...) and of other restaurants and cafes.
We were sorry to leave and would love to return one day
