The rooms are sparse and ultra European in their style, but are ideal for a 6 am flight. The bathroom is bright and sleek, with plenty of space for all your toiletries. There is a coffee machine that makes the best hotel coffee I’ve ever had, and the lobby now has a restaurant, new since my last stay here. Sorry I couldn’t take advantage of it this time. The walkway to the departure terminal is covered and warm enough in winter to traverse without gloves or hat. Thought more expensive than the other hotels nearby, it offers convenience that makes the extra $$ worth it. Shroud there have been a delay in my departure, I could easily return to my room for a few more minutes or hours of sleep!

When I travel via air, we stay at the Alt for the hasslefree of rushing to the airport.It's more than hassle free stop over to catch a plane. It's welcoming & comfort. The greeting is welcoming, informative & quick. It's got good food, relaxing lounge, & great service.I arrived in my room to a note welcoming my return. A hand made card of welcome back, with a bottle of water & a chocolate bar. Chelsea went above and beyond. Thank you. It's not just the fact of gifts & the card.Most important, she took the time to notice my return. This is service. We stayed a second night as all flights delayed due to winter weather. Dinner was delicious, clean room, comfortable beds & great lighting. Had my morning "Caramel Latte", not always available everywhere.This restaurant is not fancy, it's set for comfort & relaxation. We could walk into the airport, via the pedway, and walk without stepping into the freezing temperatures & the snow storm. When my family are flying out with an early flight, my gift is a stay at the Alt. Also shout out to their practices. When one enters the room, put your key card in the slot, you have power. When you leave you need your key card to reenter your room, take your key card with you & power off. No unnecessary lights left on. That would have been perfect in our home, raising 4 children!!
Overall - to the Alt - you've got it. You've got great staff, comfortable rooms & all the necessities. Thank you for the service. Service is what it's all about.

This hotel is super conveniently located at the Halifax airport and even attached by a walkway... no need to even go outside.
Myself and my daughter were flying in very late and decided to sleep here and then continue to our destination the following morning.
The room was quite small, the bed was comfortable and there was no noise that we noticed from the nearby airport.
It was a modern design that fit everything you need into a small space.
The bathroom was also well equipped including a hairdryer.
No water in the room which was small downside.
Especially liked the double blinds to keep the light out, creating a blackout effect for sleeping once the sun came up.
Due to the quick visit, we didn’t have a chance to try any of the hotel amenities.

We had a couple of great stays at the ALT at Halifax airport!
We stayed there before an early morning flight April 02nd and May 26st.
The quiet rooms allow to actually sleep and the beds are super comfy. Everything you need is provided and the bar and takeout options are a great asset.

Jessica was Excellent very friendly and helpful at check in giving us all the information necessary in regards of Food, Airport and check out.
The rooms are clean and the appreciation is set on CoVid-19 that the hotel is practicing with rooms disinfected and not re-used for another 72 hours, this certainly adds to the rest of mind while traveling.
Nespresso machine is certainly a wonderful treat.
Again, thank you and specially to Jessica

My stay at the Alt was wonderful! The staff were friendly and helpful, once we could find the lobby, that is. I found the building to be quite stylish; I was particularly fond of the seats on the first floor resembling plus signs. My room was very clean and comfortable, and the pillows made me feel as if I were sleeping on a cloud. I appreciated the reusable toiletry bottles and water-conserving toilet. Nespresso machine was a nice addition. Good view of the Airport, too. The only real issue I encountered was the noise of the AC, though it didn't ruin the sleep quality. Overall great experience, my stay was very well worth the price!

We've stayed at the Alt Halifax Airport many times when catching flights with the included parking packages they offer. It is very pricey IMO; however, it is so nice just walking across the covered pedway to and from the airport to our room and our vehicle. We find the rooms quite dark but convenient and cosy for sleeping. However, I would not want to have to spend any extra time in the room other than sleeping and heading out. The only "deals" i've ever found on reservations is the company offered Gift Card promo in the winter before Christmas for an extra 20% off the gift card value. I have used these 2 years in a row now, and it helps with the pricing. It's not real user friendly for the staff though, so I usually get them to apply the promo the night before we check out in the middle of the night as it takes them a few steps to complete it in their system. I am looking at a couple more bookings shortly and was wishing I had some more of the promo gift cards.... See you again soon... the Sabeans, NS

Booked this place when we were unfortunately stuck into having a unplanned overnight in Halifax, booked because it was close to the airport and convenient. NEVER AGAIN will I book with this hotel. We ended up getting stuck on a plane due to poor weather conditions, I called to let them know this and they claims they never ever received a phone call stating so, even though I had phone records showing this. They marked us as a “no show” . Us not making our reservation was completely out of our control and we still got charged $350 for this hotel for ONE night, (even though I called to cancel as soon as I knew we couldn’t make it) this is an outrageous price, not to mention that the customer service was absolutely horrible surrounding this issue, as well as the manager was extremely unprofessional. Will learn our lesson for next time!!

Hi Allie, I'm sorry to hear your trip was interrupted. We try to be as flexible as possible with our cancellation of 4pm on the day of arrival, however, I understand that winter can make this challenging. Sometimes, travelers are able to claim expenses from a interrupted trip back to their travel insurance. That said I would be happy to waive the cancellations fees for you! Please let us know what the name on the booking was and I will process the return right away. Thank you, Jessica Director of Operations jwhitman@althotels.ca 902-334-0136

This hotel is a great airport hotel. It is attached to the airport terminal by a walkway. The hotel is new (or newly refurbished) and everything is clean and modern. The bathroom was brand new and had a bench where you could sit and put on or take off clothes, along with hooks for hanging clothes or towels. There was no handrail in the shower which would have been helpful. Nice bath products. The bed and pillows were comfy. There were a number of cleverly placed surfaces on which to put our stuff. Our room had a view of the terminal and runway, but we were not bothered by noise. My only complaint was that there was nowhere in the room with bright enough lights for me to apply my make-up – not even in the bathroom.
The hotel did not have a restaurant, but they have a 24 hour café where you may purchase beverages, snacks and pre-made sandwich and breakfast items which you may eat there or take back to your room. They also have a bar which was open for certain hours in the evening.
There is short-term parking in front of the hotel for checking in and unloading luggage, but their main parking is shared with the airport. There is a garage and a surface lot, directly across the street from the hotel. Your deal may or may not include parking, which I think was about $25 Canadian per day.
Downtown Halifax was ~30 minute drive from the hotel.
I loved this hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is convenient to the airport in Halifax. Our room was adequate, but really designed for one person for one night. We stayed here before our trip and later upon returning. The rooms are clean, though strangely designed. Lighting is not the best for reading if you are on the side opposite the coffee maker. The TV picture quality is good, but there is a definite delay in the audio, making it hard to watch. The bathroom is well-appointed with toiletries in pump bottles - eco-friendly. We found the bed to be less than comfortable with no edge to the mattress, it felt like you were going to fall off.

Normally I have no complaints however this stay was terrible.
I broke my leg 2 days prior to arrival and requested a wheelchair accessible room, they would accommodate for an increased price. When I arrived to my room it a good room to sleep in. Bed was comfy.
When i went to shower the bathroom was filthy! The back of the door was full of stains ( possibly coffee), And the toilet looked as if someone did not “double flush”.
The shower floor was slippery (not in a good clean sense) which is not good for a broken leg.
Last but not least, where was my wake up call??? I requested that and it was not received!
