In the 1960s, the travel industry in France was booming, but new hotels were concentrated only in major urban areas such as Paris. At the time, Paul Dubrule and Gérard Pélisson were both living in the USA , working for major computer firms. They went into business together, and in 1967, founded the SIEH hotel group. Having seen the success of American lodging properties in suburban areas and along major highways, Dubrule and Pélisson opened their first American-style Novotel hotel outside of Lille in northern France.
