This is the square in front of Notre Dame and the old Bank of Montreal. The buskers who play here are talented. Interesting architecture around. Lots of tourists passing through. This is a place where you will want to linger.

The Basilique Notre-Dame at one side and skyscrapers at the other. What a contrast, and so attractive to "feel" the atmosphere created by this blending!

The Place d'Armes is a really good hotel in a perfect location for exploring the beauty and ambiance of Montreal within easy walking distance of many great sights and excellent dining options. While the rooms are pretty small, this hotel really makes up for it in the friendliness and helpfulness of it staff. I give special kudos to concierge Denis who was most helpful in going above and beyond in using his extensive team of contacts to help find my missing luggage and get it to me just in time to allow our vacation to proceed. He was terrific. While everyone there was great, Denis' help especially stand out!

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Staff were terrific, friendly, helpful and bilingual. The room was huge with fabulous wood floors and it felt more like a mini apartment than a hotel room. Lots of relaxing lounges throughout the ground floor. The hotel is centrally located and you can easily walk to Old Montreal, St Catherine street and McGill university. Brasserie 701 was amazing. Lots of outdoor dining options on the terrace and rooftop. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Located in historic Old Montreal, and adjacent to the Notre-Dame Basilica, you will find Place d’Armes. A beautiful, tourist filled plaza with amazing photo opportunities in a 360-degree view. Nearly every night, I would find myself in Place d’Armes admiring the view of Notre-Dame Basilica and the fact that I am in Montreal for a week during summer!

Excellent! We stayed here for two nights and had the best experience. From the moment we pulled up, we were treated like royalty. Polite and friendly valet service and a lovely concierge, Denis Bealieu. He made us feel welcomed and valued as guests of this fine hotel. Our first night was wonderful. On our second night, we dined at the roof-top terrace restaurant and it was just fantastic. Excellent and attentive service, delicious food, and a wonderful rooftop atmosphere. My boyfriend proposed during dinner that night and the entire restaurant was in on it. They congratulated us, brought us champaign, and put together a beautiful dessert tray. After we finished our dinner, the restaurant manager brought us down to the lobby and had our room upgraded. It was unbelievable. I have never been treated so well. The next day, I wasn't feeling well and had a severe head cold. We thought it might be best to check out a day early and head home. My fiancee went down to the front desk and asked if we could check out a day early and get a refund for our final night. Again, Denis was there and honoured our request. He had the girl at the front desk adjust our room fees, and had our bags brought down to the lobby and loaded into our car. The best part was the little bag of bottled water and snacks for the drive home, thanks to the kind and attentive man who took our bags down and brought our car around. We will definitely stay at this hotel again the next time we visit Montreal, If you are looking for an excellent hotel experience, look no further than the Place d'Armes. You will not be disappointed.

I stayed at Place d'Armes last week for just one night, but what a fabulous stay. The room was quite, the bed comfortable, the shower was amazing and the service was first class. And the dining was excellent. Kyo bar was where I ate. I ordered too many dishes and couldn't finish them all.
The chef here is Gregory Faye. The master of charcuterie. French born Faye has been trained by the best in the most prestigious establishments: Scribe Hotel, Meurice and the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Maison Boulud, La Fabrique, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. This is the best hotel I've stayed in while visiting Montreal. Highly recommend the hotel and dining.
