The property dates back to 19th century Montréal. It was originally used by merchants for flour trading and dry goods. It was then used as wholesaler saddlery and shoe trade. Around the 1940s, the building was used as a warehouse for Potato Distributors Ltd. and then was transferred over to a furniture warehouse in the '60s. Thanks to an excellent view of the Old Port, it was transformed into a 45-room hotel in the '90s.
