Hotel Intel: Place d’Armes fuses fun, finesse in Old Montreal
Hôtel Place d’Armes is a treasure of Old Montreal that is perfect for a staycation or celebratory dinner on Feb. 14, or any time you feel the urge for romance.
I found it a cut above many in the historic quarter, featuring superior dining and cocktails at the creative Kyo Bar Japonais and substantial wellness options at Rainspa. The stellar Brasserie701 would be the envy of Paris for its delectable French-Quebec cuisine, excellent service and prices that are fair for the upmarket scene. The spa and restaurants are all open seven days a week, which is a welcome professional touch.
Rated one of Montreal’s top getaways in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2022 readers’ survey, Hôtel Place d’Armes is loaded with charm, history and warmth.
It’s housed in four 19th-century, neoclassical greystone buildings that incorporate Old Montreal’s appealing architectural elements such as brick walls, fine wooden floors, high ceilings and towering windows with wonderful views of the centuries-old surroundings.
