“Great time there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2008

Check-in was a breeze and there was no wait, although we were the only ones checking in at the time, around 3:15PM on a Thursday. Parking is $25 (all dollar amounts will be in CAD throughout this review) per day for valet parking, but there’s a lot across the street for about $18. Since it was snowing when we arrived, valet it was! A bellman brought the luggage in and then up to our room once we checked in. Nothing special.

The room was on the fourth floor of the middle building. It was a decent size room, with a king size bed, a leather chair, a small round table with 2 chairs, dresser containing the TV, DVD player, electric fireplace (nice ambience), minibar and some drawers. There was a table and chair with a phone, desk lamp (LED) and Ethernet jack for laptop use. I can see what others have said about the dim lighting, but I thought it was Ok. It provided nice atmosphere. The bathroom was nicely appointed with enough towels, soap, shampoo, etc. There was a sink, glass enclosed shower with a rain head in the center, which was pretty clogged so it wasn’t that great, and a toilet. Overall a nice sized bathroom.

The complementary wine & cheese every night was a little above Ok. You got one glass of wine and they had a few cheese’s setup. It wasn’t all that special, but Ok. We had a late dinner in the lounge one night and I thought it was good. I had a burger. The complementary breakfast each morning was Ok also. A typical “cold” breakfast that most lower end hotel chains would serve.

There’s an ATM off one of the lobbies. There are two lobbies and one of them has a pool table and TV. They were quiet and relaxing.

Checkout was a breeze and had no issues. The car was brought around by the time I was finished at the front desk.

We stayed at the hotel for a two night mini-getaway. The first night we were woken up in the middle of the night by what we thought was "outside" noises. By 5:30 am, the noise had stopped and we tried to get back to sleep which was impossible. The second night we were woken up again by this loud "moving furniture" noise at 2:30-3 am! This continued on for over an hour and we couln't get back to sleep! In the morning when we went ot the "lounge" for our breakfast, we realised that this noise was actually comming from the lounge IN the hotel! The lounge is a bar at night and when the bar closes, staff would move the furniture for the morning breakfast !! Upon checking out, we expressed this to the staff who was helping us to which they denied we could hear this from our room and gladly took our credit card to debit our "sleepless" room for over 200$/night. They did not appologize or offer any appologetic gestures on behalf of the hotel.
We go to Montreal every month or so for a weekend getaway. This was by far the worst two night's sleep we have ever gotten. There are many other beautiful hotels in the area or nearby that will be quiet and provide the four to five star service that they deserve (try hotel Gault or even the Hyatt, both have exceptional service and rooms!). As for this hotel, you could probably stay at a youth hostel and get more sleep than Place D'Armes.. I would save my money for a hotel who will properly give the night's rest to their clients!

My husband, my son, and I went to Montreal to celebrate my birthday. We chose Le Place d'Armes after reading the reviews online. WOW! It was a wonderful experience from the moment that we arrived. Everything was perfect and first-class from the very friendly and helpful staff to the extremely clean, elegant, and comfortable room. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed in which I have ever slept. We felt like royalty. To top it off, the hotel is in a great location in Old Montreal within walking distance to shops, plenty of history, wonderful places to dine, and the Metro. I highly recommend this hotel. We are looking forward to our next visit to Montreal, which will surely include a stay at Le Place d'Armes.

  • Liked — The room was extremely clean and comfortable.

Lovely boutique hotel in a great location in Old Montreal. Hotel combines the charm of an old building with updated decor. Rooms have more of a homey-feel than hotel feel with wood floors and area rugs contemporary light fixtures and a shelving in the bathroom.
Great location across from Notre Dame.

We just enjoyed a nice long weekend at the Hotel Place D'Armes. We've stayed in just about every hotel in Montreal and decided to try this one, as we had never been there.

The hotel is very well appointed, stylish and in the best location in Old Montreal. The staff goes out of its way to assist you and the experience is typical of an upscale boutique hotel. The breakfast in the morning is basic but very nice. After having some minor problems with our room, the staff apologized profusely and upgraded us to a better room. They obviously believe in the theory that its not what happens, but how you handle it.

The only negative about the hotel is that the rooms are a bit dark and need more lighting. We were in a suite with a work station which was stuck in a dark corridor with no lighting. How someone would be able to do any work in a corridor with no lights is beyond me.

Putting that aside, the hotel is terrific and definitely one of the best in Montreal.

55 St-JacquesMontreal, Quebec H2Y 3X2

I have stayed in Montreal a number of times....this was my first stay here. All I can saw, the Ritz, Four Seasons whatever...has nothing on this place. Hotel owners-managers all over need to see what a well run hotel feels like. From check in to the doorman...all polite, helpful and provided excellent service....this is my Montreal stay from this point on.

The rooms were spotless, very very roomie, excellent baths-jacuzzi tub, roomie shower....just great. There is a lounge to have a drink or one to just relax and shoot pool.

Great stay great hotel.

  • Liked — Everything...it is a great hotel
  • Disliked — It started to snow...but welcome to Montreal in November
