The Place d’ Armes Hotel is in a class all its own. The property includes eight gorgeously renovated townhomes surround by a luscious courtyard replete with fountains, a saltwater pool, and lovely upper-level terraces. In the interior of each building, no detail has been spared; antique furniture abounds andoriginal exposed brick walls are scattered throughout the complex. The Old World charm of the 18th and 19th century buildings can simply not be ignored and leaves guests feeling like they stepped back in time. The continental breakfast is available via room service if you’re inclined to eat-in. Between the level of Southern hospitality and the historical nature there is much to be enjoyed.
