Auberge Place D'Armes is well located on a traffic free street in a tourist area and convenient for all main attractions in Vieux Quebec. Tourist area should not be seen as a negative in this instance because although busy, fronting on to a high class artisan market, it is not in the least rowdy. Far from it because this part of Quebec is a delight with high-class public buildings jostling with attractive restaurants, hotels and retail outlets. Which when combined with the wonderful Chateau Frontenac, the esplanade and beautiful public spaces seems to inspire a civilised atmosphere.
The interior of Auberge Place D'Armes does not disappoint either, the property has been imaginatively converted from historic buildings to provide comfortable and stylish accommodation.
Our bedroom, which faced onto the superb Anglican church, was reminiscent of a small, smart Parisian boutique hotel with exposed brickwork and ambiance lighting. Our only slight complaint was a lack of wardrobe space.
Service in the hotel was generally convivial, efficient and helpful.
Perhaps the piece de resistance was the hotel restaurant (Le Pain Beni) which provided magnificent breakfasts (included in the room price) and was well used by hotel guests and non-residents alike. The cool modern decor here was very pleasing and in keeping with the high design quality achieved throughout.
Value in Quebec generally is difficult to judge given the imposition of high levels of tax and a tipping protocol which appears to expect that 15% should be added to all service.
But all in all I believe that we achieved value for money given the excellent standard of accommodation and service at Auberge Place D'Armes.
We stayed for one week and I would thoroughly recommend this establishment particularly for discerning travelers who appreciate style and seek an upscale alternative to the bland predictability of many of the chains.
I have to say also how impressed I was with Quebec too , for not only is it one of the most beautiful and interesting provincial cities which I have visited but an immense sense of civic pride ensures that the external environment is, by and large, immaculately maintained.
