Quebec City Accommodation – Alt Hotel Review
On our recent cross Canada travel adventure, one of our stops along the way was in Quebec City. While here, we enjoyed a lovely 2 nights accommodation at the stylish Alt Hotel Quebec. This was our third visit and stay with Group Germain Hotels on our travels across Canada.
The family owns and operates Le Germain Hotels, Alt and Alt+ Hotels across Canada, a unique and very successful Canadian owned family-run business. In fact, they are now ranked as one of Canada’s 50 Best Run Companies. Celebrating over 30 years in business, they are continually expanding their network of properties across the Nation.
“We pride ourselves on offering the best experience at an affordable rate with ultra comfortable rooms, modern design, friendly service and eco-friendly choices.”
Staying At The Alt Hotel In Quebec City
As with our other two Alt Hotel stays, we were greeted and checked in quickly at the reception desk and booked into our Upper Floor Unit.
You immediately noticed upon arriving, the relaxed and comfortable feel the lobby had.
Room choices include; Bed with Shower or Upper Floor Bed with Bath & Shower
The Alt hotels guest rooms are smaller than most, but very well appointed with all the modern conveniences and more. The rooms are very stylish with a modern unique flair, complete with large windows, floor to ceiling mirrors and bath that has that spa looking feel.
The king bed and bedding was attractive looking and very comfortable. In room wifi was excellent along with a desk and chair with plugins, making this hotel perfect for pleasure and business travelers.
Some of the guest room amenities you can expect include;
Egyptian cotton and bamboo linen;
Goose down comforter;
Feather centre “duvet” pillows;
Italian-designed armchair for optimal comfort;
Specialty coffee machine and capsules;
Workstation with ergonomic chair;
Multi-plug connectivity panel for electronic devices;
Telephone with voicemail;
Iron and ironing board;
Spa-style shower with a shower head;
Bella Pella products;
100% cotton bath towels;
Hair dryer and magnifying mirror;
Yoga mat and videos (on request).
Additional Amenities At The Alt Hotel Quebec
Comfortable Lobby & Bar;
Ten Unique Meeting Rooms;
Convenient Lobby Mini Bar.
What I really thought was unique for this hotel was the mini-bar located in the lobby. A variety of items available for purchase, including alcohol at very reasonable prices. Unlike what you would have to pay to purchase an item from an in room minibar.
The Alt Hotel Quebec offers ten individual meeting spaces, perfect for a variety of functions. On site parking is also available for guests.
“At Alt Hotels, we focus our efforts on offering you the best at a low price: ultra-comfortable rooms, a super-fast Wi-Fi network, refreshing design and eco-friendly choices.”
For those of you looking to keep your workouts in while traveling, this hotel has an excellent fitness room. From a treadmill, spinning bike, elliptical, multi-station device, balloons, free weights and more, there’s everything you need for a complete workout.
Don’t worry about what time you need to get your workout in, it’s open 24 hours for guests. 🙂
Alt Hotel Quebec City – Location
This hotel is perfect for both business and pleasure travelers. We found taking Uber from the hotel to Old Quebec City and attractions, quick and affordable. We paid an average of $15 to $18 for a fifteen minute Uber ride to the Historic part of Quebec City.
There are also city public transit buses conveniently located within the block for easy access to the town center as well.
The hotel is ideally located in the center of a “hybrid neighborhood,” just steps away from Laval University Grounds and minutes from Jean-Lesage International Airport. There’s a large shopping mall across the street and restaurants within easy walking distance.
There is a separate restaurant connected to the hotel as well, that will also provide room service for guests if so desired.
What’s unique with this hotel brand and what I really like is that they offer guests a flexible late check out time when requested in advance. Something you definitely do not see or that we’ve come across in all our years of travel.
If you’re searching for an upper scale and very modern looking hotel that’s ideally located in Quebec City proper, this hotel is an excellent choice. Whether for business or pleasure, this hotel is a great choice.
Below, I’ve included a link to the hotels Official website for your convenience. Here, you can access much more detailed information, online booking and more.
As well, I’ve included the Official Quebec Tourism website link below. Their site is filled with everything you need to start planning your travels to this beautiful Province on the east coast of Canada.
Safe and Healthy Travels! 🙂
