Group Germain Hotels and Groupe Le Massif, two innovative Quebec-based companies, announced today that they have signed an agreement that will see Groupe Germain Hotels become the official operator of Charlevoix’s Hotel La Ferme as of June 1st.
“From the very beginning we hoped that this large scale project at Le Massif de Charlevoix would be able to establish partnerships with major players to ensure its development and growth. We have built a unique and recognized hotel in the heart of Charlevoix and Group Germain, a major player in the Canadian hotel industry, will bring its expertise to the destination,” said Daniel Gauthier, president of Groupe Le Massif’s board of directors.
Daniel Gauthier and Group Germain have maintained a close working relationship on several projects over a number of years. These business associates share a common vision and values that will be instrumental in further showcasing Hotel La Ferme to the world.
“We were often asked if Hotel La Ferme was a Le Germain Hotel because of its great design and comfort. This project is a natural progression,” said Christiane Germain, co-president of Group Germain Hotels. “We will proudly operate this hotel in the spirit in which it was created.”
“We will leverage our national network and 26 years of experience in hotel management and operations to promote Hotel La Ferme and the Charlevoix region,” explained Jean-Yves Germain, co-president of Group Germain Hotels. “The natural beauty of the region I have grown to love and the flavours of its terroir deserve to be experienced by a much larger audience.”
Group Germain Hotels, which owns 11 establishments across Canada, six outside the province of Quebec, plans to open another three properties in Ontario and Alberta by 2017.
