Group Germain Hotels is pleased to announce the nomination of Cécile Chautard as General Manager of Alt+ Hotel Quartier DIX30, which will open its doors in Brossard this spring.

A graduate of the Lycée technique hôtelier du Sacré Cœur, in the south of France, Cécile has built a strong and diversified background in hospitality since the start of her career in 1994.  In particular Cécile rose   through the ranks within the French hospitality giant Accor (Mercure, Novotel, Ibis, etc.), working in a number of hotels and catering establishments in different cities in France. In 2015, she left her homeland to follow her heart to Montreal, where she settled to pursue her career. Before taking control of Alt+ Hotel Quartier DIX30 at the beginning of the year, Cécile had already become acquainted with the Alt banner when she took on the role of consultant for Alt Hotel Ottawa when it opened in 2016.

" I am very pleased to join Group Germain Hotels, especially at the helm of the very first Alt+ Hotel," said Cécile Chautard. "It will be a great pleasure to introduce guests to this pied-à-terre style hotel. There’s no doubt that this loft-style boutique hotel is destined for a bright future,” she added.
