This hotel offered everything we needed prior to embarking on our trip. We found it by searching online for last-minute sleep-park-fly options. We had an early morning flight out of Toronto, which is a 2 1/2 hour drive from us on a good day, but the forecast called for a winter storm to move in over night. We were concerned about our drive to the airport. So we booked it (there is a down-payment due at booking), and a few hours later we showed up at the hotel - ahead of the storm! The hotel is located adjacent to the parking garage - so aside from a short walk across the road, you spend most of your time between parking, hotel and the airport protected from the elements (which mattered to us, on this particular night!). The hotel room was small, but clean and classy with deliciously comfortable bed and bedding. The television accepts HDMI cables - should you want to hook up your laptop and run through a presentation, or watch some Netflix. Wifi is free. The alarm clocks are also docking stations for smartphones (it fit my iphone 4) - which is a nice touch! The washroom has nice amenities, but they aren't the little personalized samples you're used to scooping into your bag - they are permanently mounted. And the toilet paper is... functional. The room was a little intimate - shall we just say noise carries - but was perfectly comfortable for a couple. All we really needed was a place to lay our heads for a few hours, freshen up before our flight in the morning, and a place to leave our car - and the ALT delivered. We opted not to purchase breakfast in the lounge downstairs before we headed out in the morning - just crossed the road, went up the escalator, and caught the skytrain to our terminal. On return, we first had to find where to meet the skytrain (it was upstairs with departures, I believe, instead of on the arrivals level - which makes sense) - but from there back to our car in the covered parking lot was about 10 minutes, tops, including wait time. The ALT had validated our ticket before we left the hotel, so that on our return all we had to do was drive out of the parking lot and slip the validated ticket in the machine on the way out. No snow to brush off the car! ALT is in a perfect location and they offer a great service - we'll be using this option again!
