Dear friends and guests,

Our hotels are open for business and ready to welcome you. In order to protect our guests as well as our teams, we have implemented very strict hygiene and safety measures.


Health and hygiene measures

The health and safety of our guests and team members is of utmost importance to us. Here are some additional hygiene measures we have implemented in our hotels, over and above our already high standards:

COVID-19 vaccination passport - Quebec ResidentsAs required by the Government of Quebec, as of September 1, 2021, all persons 13 years of age or older are required to present a valid proof of vaccination (vaccine passport) against COVID-19 containing a QR code that attests to the fact that they are adequately protected against COVID-19 or that they are subject to a clinical contraindication to vaccination against COVID-19. Photo identification will also be required.

Please note that this measure only applies to individuals attending a restaurant, bar, patio or meeting at one of our locations. No proof of vaccination is required to stay at any of the Le Germain, Alt or Escad hotels in Quebec.

Contactless check-in and check-out: Our protocols have been revised to ensure you a contactless arrival and departure.

Physical distancing: Signage has been placed in all common areas to ensure the recommended physical distancing guidelines are respected.

Hand sanitizer: Hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed in several areas throughout each hotel, including at the main entrance, reception area, elevators and fitness room.

Cleaning products and protocols: Our hotels use cleaning products and protocols that have been approved for combating viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.

Secure rooms: To assure that your room is not contaminated, you are the only individual(s) who will enter it during your stay. All rooms are cleaned in accordance with our enhanced cleaning protocol.

Public spaces and common areas: The frequency of cleaning and sanitizing has been increased in all common areas, with extra attention given to high-contact surfaces.

Training of team members: All employees have been trained in safety and sanitation protocols as they apply to COVID-19, including proper hand washing techniques.

Our protocols are continuously updated as new information becomes available, and in accordance with government directives.
