The original building was constructed in 1907 to house the Académie Commerciale (commercial academy) and run by the Marist brothers at the time. In 1930, they built an addition behind the academy for their new school of the arts and trades.

The building was converted into a hotel when the academy closed in 1961 under the name Hôtel de la Picardie, of which Mr. Gérard Picard was owner.

The Hotel came under new ownership in 1987 with the acquisition by Mr. Gilles Blanchette. The building underwent major renovations, while staying true to its original character and with this transformation, the hotel was baptized anew as the Hôtel du Fjord. The rooms are completely renovated and accented by modern decor.
