Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Very nice rooms, helpful staff, parking and WLAN included. Bedsheets comfy. Buses to downtown take about 20 minutes and leave every 10 minutes throughout the day and 15 minutes in the evening. Would go there again, no real negative points.

Context: Girls vacation.

We always try to find clean, comfortable, quiet, budget friendly hotels to stay in on our trips. I booked the room at ALT based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. My friend and I loved our room and we would stay at ALT again!

THE GOOD
1. Friendly and helpful staff
2. Clean and spacious room
3. Wonderful walk in shower with adjustable shower head and glass doors
4. Free Parking
5. Free Wi Fi
6. Good selection of Other Amenities (Fridge, Keurig Coffee Maker, Bose Radio etc.)
7. Trendy modern but tasteful decor (Our room looked just like the photos on ALTs website!)
8. Comfortable beds
9. Close to food (Starbucks, grocery stories, restaurants)
10. Close to the highway (about a 5min drive if memory)
11. Apples in the lobby


THE SO SO
1. The hotel is 7-15 drive, depending on traffic from Old Quebec because of lights (BUT the drive is a straight shot and you pass beautiful homes, the battle field and tons of restaurants on the way)
2. No free continental breakfast (But there is room service and a fridge in your room)
3. The outdoor parking is a little small and tight and I can see it being a mess in winter (But I was told that there is underground parking)

THE BAD
Honestly, I have nothing particulary negative to say about this hotel. Its was clean, quiet and comfortable. The price wasn't bad for the summer and it was close enough to everything we needed while we were in Quebec City.

Positives:
- low flat nightly rate
- in-room amenities like king bed, fridge, microwave (may be on request), bose speakers, fancy shower cubicle
- modern interriors and cleanliness
- less crowded and helpful staff
- free parking and wifi internet
- everything basic you need for a sound sleep at a low cost

Negatives:
- distance to Old Quebec, but you save $$ for parking (we parked for $9 right in the middle of Old Quebec)
- no option for bright lighting in the room

Overall, the best hotel option for staying in Quebec City during the peak season.

We stayed at this hotel on the last night of a 2 week road trip - and were pleasantly surprised. The beds are VERY comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful and the location was surprisingly convenient. Although not in the old city, as an in transit stop, its location across the street from a shopping centre - with two more down the street - offered lots of dinner options. The hotel is stylish and cool, and the layout of the rooms is very handy - things like light switches in convenient spots, no sign in wireless internet, and easily accessible outlets are not to be overlooked. They even had the Bose radio playing softly when we arrived in our room! Only small drawbacks are the tricky showers (beautiful glass shower stall but a handheld showerhead that made it almost impossible not to get water everywhere) and the lack of a hot tub (travelling with someone with a bad back, we like to have a hot tub available) - although those are very small things - would definitely stay here again.

As a flight attendant I can tell ou that I visit A LOT of hotels! This one is contemporary, with a business feel. The rooms are well decorated with high concrete ceilings, the bed is very comfy with thick comforter, the pillows are just fluffy and yet firm enough. I just don't see anything wrong with this hotel. Upon arrival we were given a room on the even number side to insure we would not be disturbed by any noise on the other side without even having to ask!

Of course it's NOT located right downtown quebec city (people should use google and do a bit of research) but restaurants and hundreds of shops are a few feet away. You can always use transit ( route 800 /801) to go downtown. Will definately return to this hotel.

Dear halifaxcub,
We hope you found all the comforts of home during your stay with us.
Considering you seem to travel a lot, you may find interesting to know of our other properties: ALT Hotel Quartier Dix30 in Brossard and ALT Hotel Toronto Pearson. Our beds, comforters and pillows are the same in every ALT Hotel.
It will be a pleasure to see you again!
Kind regards,
