Fodor's Review

Three splendidly ornate Victorian commercial buildings were merged to create Old Montréal's largest boutique hotel, pleasing jetsetters and business execs alike with rooms that combine old-fashioned grandeur with sleek modern furnishings. Some of the high-ceiling guest rooms feature exposed brick or stone walls and the large bathrooms are tiled in black granite and white marble. A 2,000-square-foot spa includes the city's first hammam (Middle Eastern–style steam bath). For socializing, there's a rooftop bar and restaurant, a lobby brasserie, Suite 701, where the after-work crowd quaff martinis, and a clubby room with billiards and a huge flat screen television. The Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal is just across the square, and the Palais des Congrès is nearby.

location, location, location..... and a great hotel

The hotel is perfectly located in Old Montreal within a stones throw of Notre Dame. The room are delightfully large both the standard King and the King suite. This is a "keeper" that we will return to each time we are in Montreal. The decor is stylish yet fully functional. Can I complain about anything.... well the shower head in the standard king is a disappointment (notably the King suite shower is FABULOUS)

A true 5 star

Had a wonderful stay at Le Place d'Armes Hotel. The room was furnished with a wonderful bed and the sheets felt exquisite. There was no coffee service in the room and we called and one was sent in 5 minutes with extra coffee. We would recommend this hotel to the traveler who wanted to be near the dock, great shopping, restaurants and the Chapelle Notre-Dame. All within short walking distance.

Great Hotel

Am I glad, I found the Place d'Armes after my poor experience at the W. Friendly staff, well appointed guestrooms and bathrooms. Book and executive suite, plenty of space. Nice wide shower stall and jaccuzi. Walking distance to Old Montreal's restaurants and art galeries. Good spa. Continental breakfast could be better. This is where most movie actors stay.
