    Le Place d'Armes serves as a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Travelers say that the guest rooms – appointed with exposed brick, hardwood floors, goose down bedding and rain showers – provide the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. Those visiting Montreal with a large group note that the hotel's accommodating employees (and 12,000 plus square feet of function space) make Le Place d'Armes an easy choice for conventions and family reunions. Plus, the hotel offers guests complimentary high-speed internet in all its rooms, a much-appreciated perk for those visiting on business. And the hotel's seat in Vieux-Montreal, about a block west of Notre-Dame Basilica, entices all travelers, no matter their reason for visiting. Should you have some down time after touring the city, make an appointment at the Rainspa or take in the view (and a cocktail) at the rooftop Terrasse Place d'Armes. The hotel also houses two additional eateries: Kyo Bar Japonais offers an extensive menu of Japanese specialties, including sushi and izakaya plates, while Brasserie 701 serves French comfort food.

Travelers enjoy the hotel's "very French" atmosphere, describing the guest rooms' exposed brick or stone walls and hardwood floors as trendy, though some thought the rooms were a tad too small.

    While some previous guests praise Hotel St. Paul's stylish design and ample amenities, others claim the ambient lighting made the guest rooms and common spaces feel more gloomy than trendy.

The hotel's location is also a major selling point: Perched several blocks west of the Old Port, Hotel St. Paul is within easy reach of Montreal's most popular attractions.
