A new signature look for Le Germain Montreal - Christiane Germain and Marie Saint Pierre join efforts to offer the best in comfort to hotel guests



    MONTREAL, Aug. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - Business women Christiane Germain and
Marie Saint Pierre, both leaders in their respective fields, are proud to
announce the launch of their new exclusive collection at Hotel Le Germain
Montreal. By combining their expertise, the hotelier and the fashion designer
have developed the new Germain Comfort collection, a unique range of products
that include bedding sets, throws, and bed and sofa cushions. Marie Saint
Pierre also reviewed the hotel's female front desk staff dress code - and now
they wear uniforms from the Marie Saint Pierre signature collection. In
addition to this collaboration, there has been a major investment of three
million dollars for hotel renovation.
    "From the start, our company has taken up the challenge to distinguish
itself by offering exclusive design, sweeping comfort, a warm ambience and
exceptional quality products. We have carried out important work in order to
improve the comfort and design of our rooms. In addition to this investment is
our collaboration with Ms. Marie Saint Pierre who is certainly one of the best
designers in Quebec. The result is elegant, chic, warm and reserved, just like
Marie Saint Pierre's signature style", said Ms. Christiane Germain, Groupe
Germain's Co-President.
    "Loyal to our vision and to each of our innovations, we've put our heart
into developing the products that make up the Germain Comfort collection. Each
product has been designed to combine quality, elegance and refinement. The bed
linens, made with 100% European cotton, are light as a veil and durable. Their
bright whiteness is only matched by their superior craftsmanship," said Ms.
Marie Saint Pierre, President of Marie Saint Pierre Design.

    Investment of more than $3 million in the Hotel Le Germain Montreal

    As a result of Ms. Germain and Ms. Saint Pierre's inspiration, along with
the ingenuity and creativity of the Lemay-Michaud architecture firm, Le
Germain Montreal's new decor combines refinement, design, technology and of
course, comfort. These changes have been carried out with the same attention
to detail and aesthetic that have made the Groupe Germain hotels renowned for
more than 20 years.
    Always on the look out for new trends, Le Germain Montreal has renovated
all of its rooms in order to continue to satisfy and anticipate the needs of
its business and leisure clientele. As a result, in addition to the Marie
Saint Pierre signature collection for bed linen and accessories, Le Germain
Montreal has replaced its furniture, reviewed room decor, added walk-in
wardrobes, redesigned bathroom lighting and improved communication interfaces.
To reflect the rooms' new look, the hotel's lobby, meeting and exercise rooms
have also been revamped.
    Promoting local suppliers has always been important to Groupe Germain,
and that's why they've decided to have their new furniture made in Quebec. In
order to respect the environment, the rooms have been equipped with
energy-efficient lights.
