My husband and I eloped to Quebec City this summer. We had never visited QC before and it is a WONDERFUL city!
After a lot of research and communication by email with several hotels (everyone I communicated with was very nice), we decided to stay at L'Auberge Place d'Armes. The staff was so helpful -- everyone from the front desk attendant to the owner Michelle Dore and her son Marc-Antoine. They are patient, friendly, and bilingual! Marc-Antoine was kind to be one of our two required witnesses for our wedding civil ceremony (our wedding photographer was the other witness)!!
This hotel has a wonderful location -- just across a square from the famed Chateau Frontenac. Auberge Place d'Armes is within easy, short walking distance of practically everything in the tourist guides.
I prefer small boutique hotels, and the Chateau Frontenac just seemed to big and corporate and expensive. If you want to experience the Chateau, make a reservation for the $40 Sunday brunch. It was decadent...with tables and tables of food.
Auberge Place d'Armes is an OLD building, which I love, and the owners have preserved it well, while providing all the modern amenities. Our Room 21 was not big, but I don't mind that. Every bit of space was used in a smart way. I loved our room. Exposed brick wall. A very comfortable bed. Flat tv. A desk. My favorite part -- a double paned window that opens to the small balcony overlooking the pedestrian street, musicians, artists, etc. Very few rooms have a balcony. We sat on the balcony in our wedding attire on the afternoon of our wedding and ate cake (which the hotel owners gave to us) and listened to music.
I am VERY sensitive to noise. When the window was closed, I could not hear the street noise. The air conditioning unit was in the wall and was very quiet and worked well. The bathtub/shower unit was lovely and was installed in a challenging space within old stone grey walls.
The breakfast in the morning (in their restaurant) was good. It is served by a waitress (not buffet or continental). There were 7 or 8 selections on the menu. It was filling and carried us through almost to dinner!
Parking is a bit tricky but the staff handles that situation very well. One must park temporarily in the parking circle near the hotel (because the hotel is on a pedestrian street). The staff quickly helped us unload all of our stuff, carried it up the winding stairs to our room (although , and parked the car.
I was so satisfied with our stay at L'Auberge Place d'Armes. Granted, it was a special weekend for us, but I am confident we would have the same wonderful experience any time. And we do plan to return.
