A Review Of Our Stay At The Alt Hotel

On our outstanding travels across 🍁 Canada a few seasons ago, we first arrived in the – Province of Newfoundland.

We enjoyed an outstanding overnight stay at the …

🌺 The Alt Hotel St. John’s Newfoundland 🌺

What I really liked about our stays with {Group Germain Hotels} on our travels across Canada,

is that this is a unique and very successful 🍁 Canadian family-run business.

The Germain family owns and operates Le Germain Hotels, Alt and Alt+ Hotels across Canada.

In fact, they are now ranked as one of Canada’s 50 Best Run Companies and Celebrating well over 30 years in business.

They are continually expanding their network of properties across the Nation, to this day.

“We pride ourselves on offering the best experience at an affordable rate with ultra comfortable rooms, modern design, friendly service and eco-friendly choices.”

Alt Hotel St. John’s – Location

Alt Hotel St. John's Newfoundland


This particular hotel is ideally located right downtown, in the {City of St. John’s} very popular waterfront.

The 🛳 cruise ship pier, popular restaurants and attractions are just steps away.

For those arriving by 🛬 air as we did, we were at the hotel within minutes after picking up our rental car.


The hotel does provide underground parking for its guests at an additional charge.

As this is a very popular area in the city, parking can be very difficult to find and limited.

completely out of the ordinary from any other hotel.

There’s a stylish new relaxed casual feel to the lobby, complete with a pool table, lounge area and more.

Concluding My Review Of The Alt Hotel St. John’s

Alt Hotel by Le Germain St. John's Newfoundland


What’s really great with this hotel brand, is that they offer a flexible check out ⏰ time.

This option really put the icing on the cake for our stay.

As we arrived in the wee hours of the morning, we didn’t have to check out by 11 am,

as is the case with most other properties.

We informed the front desk attendant on our arrival and enjoyed a comfortable restful sleep, after our long journey from Vancouver. No pressure of having to get up at a specific time and rush to check out of our room. 😴
