Bottom Line

This 133-room boutique, located in a historic building in Old Montreal, blends contemporary design with old-world charm. The large lobby, with a pool table and modern leather seating, is stylish yet cozy. The rooms follow suit, with crisp white bedding, hardwood floors, and upscale bathrooms; some have extras like exposed brick and big soaking tubs. There are a few flaws, though -- outdated tube TVs in many rooms, some visible nicks and scratches on the wood furniture, and some rooms with tight quarters. But perks like free Wi-Fi, a free downtown shuttle, and an excellent Clef d'Or concierge add value.

In Old Montreal

Map of Le Place D'Armes Hotel & Suites

Old Montreal is home to the city's largest concentration of historic sites and museums, and is lined with pedestrian-friendly cobblestone streets.

With a history dating back to 1642, Old Montreal is, well, old. This well-preserved neighborhood might be one of the prettiest and most fascinating quarters of the city. While summers give way to lively street festivals and restaurant terraces brimming with energy, winters offer a much more mellow and relaxed pace.
