Hotel Intel: U.S. magazine poll rates Montreal’s Nelligan No. 1 in Canada
The gifted team at the Corner Collection of Montreal has been honoured as hosts with the most.
That’s an amazing accomplishment, reflecting a wealth of talent and a ton of hard work, all based on a 50-year heritage of hospitality. It started in 1973 when Tony Antonopolous opened Le Coin on St-Paul St. at St-Gabriel St., a modest diner popular with port workers.
Today, the considerably expanded and cosmopolitan Corner Collection, named for Le Coin, is led by a second generation of hoteliers, siblings Dina, Anna, Dimitri and Maria Antonopoulos.
“The Travel + Leisure awards are great tributes and our family is ecstatic that we are continuing our father’s legacy,” said Maria Antonopolous, chief brand officer of the Corner Collection. “We’re truly grateful to our loyal guests and to our exceptional staff.”
The Corner Collection is a flourishing empire that includes Rainspa, Brasserie 701, Kyo Bar Japonais and Terrasse Place d’Armes, all located in Hôtel Place d’Armes; as well as Nelli Bistro, Méchant Boeuf and Terrasse Nelligan in the Hôtel Nelligan; and the French bistro, Modavie, at 1 St-Paul St.
