MONTREAL -- While single-handedly saving much of Montreal's Old
Town from the wrecker's ball, the Antonopoulos family from Greece
created three of the finest boutique hotels in North America.
The family is offering a cluster of special packages and plans
to travelers. All deals are in effect until April 30.
Leading the list are: the Romantic Getaway; Montreal Jazz
Nights; Skip Work! Stay In Bed Late; Discover Montreal; and Midweek
Urban Aixperience, which includes dining at Janick Bouchard's new
Aix Cuisine au Terroir restaurant.
The family offers a choice of rooms or suites at any of their
three hotels -- Hotel Nelligan, Auberge du Vieux-Montreal or Hotel
Place D'Armes -- and offers a mix of amenities and services,
including continental breakfast, wine and cheese daily, gastronomic
dinners, Montreal tours, champagne, Porto, Jazz compact discs and
Packages range from $190 to $350 plus tax for two nights, for
Costa Antonopoulos, a tool-and-die-maker turned real estate
developer, and his brother, Tony, managed to accomplish what years
of local government could not in this francophone city: They
restored a bevy of heritage buildings to their former glory and, in
the process, re-invigorated the Old Town's tourism trade.
