Brick walls in the rooms
The homey, spacious, and nicely decorated rooms feature brick walls. The beds are graced with a goose feather down and pillows, high-end toiletries, a mini bar and free wifi.
Three great spots to have dinner and-or have a drink
The Place d’Armes Hotel & Suites has a most popular rooftop resto-bar in town. The Terrace Place d’Armes features a magnificent view on Place d’Armes, the Old Montreal, and downtown. It towers the city lights which makes it the perfect spot for happy hour with its funky music and chic atmosphere.
‘Suite 701’ is another popular spot amongst the rich and famous kids of Montreal who enjoy its modern brasserie-style cuisine and its elegant yet laid-back atmosphere. How could you say no to a tasty drink served on the stainless steel bar?
A novelty in 2013 was the Kyo Bar which is located on the main floor of the hotel. This elegant sushi bar serves great sushi without any decorum in a warm and comfortable decor featuring brick walls and hand-made lanterns.
Facing the Notre-Dame Basilica
