Very comfortable room. Well laid out room with amenities. Loved the Nespresso Machine! Laura in the lounge was delightful and very professional. My only ask would be to allow customers to eat Skip food at the Bar.

Modern well appointed room with contemporary feel. Stylish bathroom. The hotel has a bar for coffee or drinks and light meals. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. It is a fair walk to the sights from the hotel, but taxis are easy to book. Would book this again.

This hotel is in a good central downtown location. It is within walking distance to parliament (3min walk.) Decor is very modern. Rooms are on the smaller size, but the bathroom is pretty spacious. You can see into the shower from the bedroom, obviously fine for a couple, but if not, then that could be an issue. Bed and pillows are comfortable. There is no mini fridge in the room. Hotel is very clean. You need to pay for parking, there is a parking garage across the street so that is convenient, cost is about $23 a day. Fitness room is not great, it has extremely minimal equipment. Dumbbells go up to 20lbs, there is one full body cable machine, 2 bikes, 2 treadmills and an elliptical. There were three of us in there at one time and it was too crowded. Overall would recommend this hotel as it has a clean and modern feel to it

Sleek, industrial style hotel about 2 blocks south of parliament bldgs. Super location and short walk to Byward Market and Rideau Centre, Sparks street pedestrian walk. Easy to book on line, good pricing. Super pleasant staff at front desk and bar. Nice to have a social drink bar in the lobby as well as a coffee bar. Great coffee! Room was nicely decorated, comfy beds and pillows, blackout blinds, and energy conserving key required for all room lights. Everything was very clean. Low amenities (just a gym). Business hotel but did the trick for us.

Great hotel and location if you are visiting Parliament or downtown. Beds was very comfortable. Rooms are small, but newer and good use of space. Window can open, coffee in room. Water available for water bottles in lobby. Staff is friendly and allowed a late check out. Will definitely go back!

The room was small (no drawers) and facing a wall but reasonably clean. The remote for the tv didn’t work. There was a fire alarm in the condo that shares the building that resulted in an evacuation of the hotel at 3 am. This may be beyond the control of the hotel but no apology was extended or any mention of the inconvenience in check out. Check out was slow and a receipt couldn’t be provided because despite having had no issue at check in they couldn’t find my reservation in their new system (they were unfamiliar) even with a reservation number, name and room number. I had to leave for a meeting and had to follow up twice to get a receipt. The aloofness of the staff made the experience a negative one.

Dear Cruiser822730, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am sorry to hear about your experience during your last stay, I would like to assure you that this is not a typical stay at Alt.We were in the middle of a major system switch and to add to that there was a fire alarm in the building. This stretched our resources to a point where we could not provide the same level of service we typically do. Once again please accept my apologies and if there is anything we can do , please do not hesitate to contact me. Best Regards Dino Gurusamy

Nice modern room, on the small side. Quiet. TV claims to let you cast your media but I couldn't get it to work and there are limited (and inaccurate) instructions. Friendly desk staff. Glass shower leaks a bit, as most do. One really annoying thing is the shower: a great soap/shampoo dispenser, but nowhere to put your personal stuff, including wash cloths. Easy fix would be a suction cup shelf in the shower.

Modern, comfortable, trendy location. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was cozy but comfortable and modern. The location puts itself, not far away from most things, in walking distance. The onsite, cafe is convenient for coffee, drinks, and some food items.

Nice hotel. Modern minimalist style. No proper restaurant. Poor cafe with very limited breakfast options and expensive. Better going Tim Hortons on corner. What disappointed me was the grubby bathroom. Filthy in corners and around edges of floor. Shower needs deep clean think cleaner only cleans middle of floor. Despite trying-to be environmental friendly and hanging up towels they were replaced each day.
