... a home away from home, snow-covered pavements and jelly-bean houses included.
My travels are nearly finished and this time next week I will be back in the UK. I’m quite looking forward to returning home, I have some long overdue catching up to do and I’m starting to miss the BBC and a good cup of tea. That said, I still have a few days in St.John’s to enjoy with people to see and Tim Horton’s to consume. In this very long post ...
... are many striking elements of the cathedral, but the most pronounced is the Baldacchino, a reproduction of Bernini's Baldacchino in St. Peter's in Rome. Its sheer size, a grand organ, the Baldacchino, an ornate dome, cupola, many arches and transepts, marble floors and marvellous works of art all combine to make this Cathedral very grand indeed. Mass starts as I complete my tour, so I sit, listening to the priest's soothing baritone in French. Surprisingly, ...
... festival ones so we stayed for about an hour listening to music, Zach loved it when they played the Lumineers ‘Hey Ho’, and marvelling at the fact that they have 3 microbreweries in the space of 1 city block. Another good reason to live here Chris decided.
Chris and Zach left on a bus at 4:30pm from the Berri-UQAM Metro station near Quarter Latin to go to the airport to pick up Chris’s mum Jane who was arriving at 6pm from London England. I went ...
Bizoux à tous!
We just retruned of our holidays to Quebec, very satisfied. Personally, I was there only 2 weeks, but I was under the impression to have spent there more than 1 month. Bargain! And very happy that storm Sandy, who kept me in Haiti one more day than planned before leaving, spared Montreal. It would have been rather unpleasant be hit twice by the same hurricane! Higlights: ...
... it being this cold. We're in May for goodness-sake. Good thing I brought my fleece lined ski jacket on this trip. I think it's just us who are not used to the cold because we saw people walking around in shorts on the streets. Clearly no eskimo-blood in us warm-blooded Malaysians.

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Place d'Armes Hotel & Suites Montreal
I stayed at this hotel from September 27 until September 30. My stay was immensely delightful. The only problem I encountered was a small leak in the bathroom ceiling right above our shower. I notified management of the problem and they offered to switch my room immediately. But I declined because the corner room we were staying in was bright and attractive and afforded a grand view of the Notre Dame Basilica. The hotel presents a lavish continental breakfast each morning with pastries, croissants, juice, salmon, fresh fruit, bagels, etc. The hotel staff was courteous and knowledgeable about the local restaurants. The front desk has menus to several local restaurants. We tried a French restaurant called Bonaparte which is a short walk from the hotel. The food was delicious! I definitely recommend the Hotel Place d'Armes to any visitors to Montreal.
Five Star Staff Indifference
My wife and I found the service to be quite poor during our stay from 26 to 30 September, 2003. After requesting a foam pillow instead of a feather pillow, we were told "to wait" until the next day as housekeeping "went home". Also, the shower water pressure was very low making washing a real chore. The rooms are very attractive, but the designer blinds let it too much light from streetlamps making sleeping difficult. Also, the staff was unable to recommend a restaurant for dinner. This in a city that has thousands of restaurants. We attempted to discuss our concerns but were told "that is the way it is". Think twice - you should stay elsewhere!
Great service at this cute hotel
We stayed at the Hotel Place d'Armes August, 2003. The location was great and the hotel lovely. We stayed with our children aged 14 and 12, all in one room. The beds were very comfortable and room worked out well- even for the four of us. The staff went out of their way to make our vacation as nice as it could be. They gave good suggestions for dinner and places of interest. My daughter left her pocketbook in our room after we checked out. One phone call to the hotel from home and the problem was solved. A few days later we got the pocketbook in the mail with everything intact inside. They even paid for the shipping.
Nice place to stay.
Romantic, comfortable, and elegant!
Hotel Place d'Armes is a charming, romantic inn in Vieux Montreal. Our room was extremely comfortable, yet very elegant. The staff was outstanding, bilingual, and friendly. This hotel exceeded our expectations, which were high in the first place. I would stay there again and again and again and again.
A great place to stay
We stayed at the Hotel Place d'Armes for five nights in August, and were very pleased in every way. The building is beautiful and has an outstanding location on one corner of the Place d'Armes (from which it takes its name). The staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfasts plentiful and delicious, and the rooftop terrace a relaxing place from which to watch the city at night. We stayed in one of the basic Queen-size rooms, which was a bit small but fine for two people. The Metro station is only two blocks away, and all of Vieux Montreal is within easy walking distance. We recommend this hotel without any hesitation and would definitely stay there again.
What a great hotel! My boyfried and I were lucky enough to get a package that included a King Deluxe Suite, breakfast and cocktails everyday, a 5-course dinner at Les Remparts Restaurant and massage for two, at the Hotel Place D'Armes during the Montreal Jazz Fest 2003. We loved the whole experience. The Hotel is in a great location @ Old Montreal, with Chinatown 2 minutes away, the metro up the street (2 blocks) and Downtown not more than a 10/15 minute walk. The Hotel is gracious with high ceilings and modern fixtures. Our room was spacious and had: a king sized bed with down comforters and pillows, CD player with a selection of music to choose from at the front desk and the double jacuzzi was GREAT. They thought of every comfort and then some (loved the soap, gel & bath salts). If we had neighbors, we didn't hear them. The staff was exceptional; although we were not demanding guests, they got us apple juice at 1:00 am without complaint, not once but three times. I do have to warn you on a couple of things: they don't have a business center; although guest were more than welcome to use their computer, the breakfast is 'continental' ~ no hot food which disappointed my boyfriend, but I thought the selection of pastries, cereal and fruit were great..more than what we would get in the States, and the showerhead acted up (pressure wise)...small matters when considering the overall experience was awesome. The restaurant, Les Remparts, was also a great experience. The food was amazingly flavorful and the manager was kind enough to grant us access to the rooftop to watch the fireworks...which capped an unbelievable night (very romantic). We will definitely be back.
Our very favorite hotel anywhere
We are currently staying at the Place d'Armes and loving it once again! This is our second visit to this fabulous hotel. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the bathrooms are huge, the decor is gorgeous, and the food is great! A terrific find in Montreal or anywhere in the world.Note that we got the Urban Escape Package, which included a deluxe king room for two nights (with a double whirlpool tub), two one-hour massages, and breakfast in bed for two mornings for $388 U.S. Considering what a luxurious hotel this is, this is a great deal.We will definitely be back!
what a wonderfully relaxing hotel - every amenity you could want...we had a huge marble bathroom(with jacuzzi) a 2 story room with a nice view and great staff! they had a huge breakfast that came with the room and a wonderful wine and cheese hour at 5 (complimentary) - the hotel is located centrally within walking distance of tons of good restaurants and shopping. a complete vacation in one long weekend!
Beautiful charming with Five Star Service
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel last summer and we were in heaven. It is romantic from the beautiful beaux arts buildings sitting opposite the Notre Dame Basilica to the hardwood floors and down comforters in your room. We just loved it and it's only a hop to the beautiful touristy areas and with in/out valet parking you can drive to the more bohemian sections of town or jump on the metro close by. A find!!
Great Service in Montreal
We recently stayed at the Hotel Place d'Armes in the heart of Old Montreal. Touted as a new boutique property, this hotel lived up to our high expectations. Highlighted by its fabulous service in all areas. The front desk staff was exceptional, looking after all of our needs. They helped us plan activities, pick restaurants, and make reservations. The rooms are modern and full of all the convienences (including free and incredibly fast ethernet connections for your laptop). We highly recommend this hotel. Enjoy!
