The Gouverneur chain, the Quebec hotel leader, operates hotels throughout Quebec that are known for the warmth of their welcome and the friendliness of their staff. Over its 50 years of existence, over 30 million discriminating Quebec and foreign visitors have been accommodated at the Hôtels Gouverneur hotels.
In 1964, a group of Quebec City business people launched what was to become the first Hôtels Gouverneur hotel, a 114-room hotel in Ste-Foy then under the American Congress Inn chain name.
A few years later, the hotel’s owners decided to drop the American affiliation to offer a typically Quebecois hotel in which warmth of atmosphere and personalized service went hand in hand. It was an overnight success.
The new hotel chain set up shop in several major cities in Quebec, and in 1988, as it grew in size and its urban calling became clear, it adopted the Hôtels Gouverneur name to celebrate its growth.
Today, after more than 50 years of history and success, Hôtels Gouverneur—with an offer of top-quality hotels, a full range of services and proudly Québécois—holds a major market share in each region.
