Alt Hotel Ottawa opens in Canada

Visitors to the Canadian capital now have even more choice of quality accommodation to choose from thanks to the opening of the 148-room Alt Hotel Ottawa.

The newly built property is conveniently located on Slater Street, just a few blocks away from the city’s iconic Parliament Buildings and is less than a mile from the bustling ByWard Market district; the perfect location for holidaymakers and business travellers alike.

The opening is the latest offering from the Montreal-based group Germain Hospitalité; a hotel operator that currently has a portfolio of 13 properties comprising the Alt and Le Germain brands.

The company specialises in a ‘no frills chic’ concept which sees guests enjoy all the luxury of a high-end hotel experience without the price tag.

The group is enjoying rapid expansion with plans to open up to seven more hotels by 2020.


Designed by LEMAYMICHAUD Architecture Design and Chmiel Architects, the 14-floor, $30 million Alt Hotel Ottawa offers intelligent design, comfort and attentive service.

As well as a fully equipped fitness centre it is home to 4,000 square feet of meetings space furnished with top of the range facilities including smart large format televisions and high-spec projection screens.

Special touches in every room, such as ‘ultra-comfortable’ beds and spa-inspired bathrooms, all lend the hotel a decidedly upscale feel that defies its affordable year-round nightly flat rate.

The new opening further strengthens the capital’s diverse hotel offering.
