Upon discovering this quiet old street in downtown Montreal Harold rang every buzzer to see if anyone was selling. Where there’s a will there’s a way; now the Côté empire is gradually marching down Argyle Avenue leaving luxurious rooms, suites and self-catering apartments in its wake.....

.... Harold is a perfectionist who loves shopping, the perfect combination for an aubergiste. He may tell you that the rooms are ‘stuffed with all kinds of old junk’, but every detail has been carefully considered. No single style pervades - if he likes something, he buys it. Moroccan lamps and mosaic tables are mixed with Persian rugs, chunky wooden furniture, exposed brickwork and ornate marble fireplaces. Huge, vibrant canvases by Quebec-born Benoit A. Côté fill the walls and massive panelled archways divide up the suites. Old wooden doorposts framed the bed in my ultra-stylish suite and the bathroom floor was a wacky mosaicked affair. The hub of the auberge is the breakfast room, a warm sunny spot where guests sit around Moroccan tables reading the paper, sipping freshly-squeezed orange juice and deciding just what to eat from the cornucopia of healthy delicacies. In the evenings guests can roam freely here and help themselves from the honesty bar. A big thumbs-up all round. Five minutes walk from Rue St Catherine and Rue Crescent.
