Group Germain Hotels is pleased to announce the appointment of Alex Kassatly as General Manager of Le Germain Hotel Ottawa, which will open its doors in downtown Ottawa this winter. The Canadian hotelier’s second property to open in the nation's capital, Le Germain Hotel Ottawa will occupy a state-of-the-art mixed use building that will be an integral part of the Ottawa Art Gallery expansion and Arts Court redevelopment. The complex will combine the hotel, ArtHaus private residences, a theatre and an art gallery.

Alex Kassatly is a hotelier at heart with decades of experience, notably as General Manager of Château Frontenac and Manoir Richelieu, in Quebec City, but also at the helm of prestigious properties in China, Egypt and Dubai. More recently, he took a break from the hotel industry to study photography, a discipline that he is passionate about. A lover of travel, his journeys allow him to indulge his passion for taking photos.

"I am proud to join the Group Germain Hotels family. Le Germain Hotel Ottawa is the embodiment of refinement and personalized service. I intend to promote this new jewel in the nation’s capital with energy and enthusiasm,” he said.
