“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

I have stayed here about 4 times now. I used to stay at one of the other hotels nearby but you can't beat this one for location.
That said, there are other things I like about the place - the beds are always comfortable, I like the minimalist design, the toiletries are quality, and the tech is good: USB ports in the rooms, good sized tv, good clock.
Check in is always slow here for some reason, and it's the only hotel outside of Europe where I am required to give them photo ID on check in. It seems a bit over-kill, really. They're pleasant enough, but my thought is always that the front desk staff must be in training, or new.
Downside this particular visit was the air conditioning. No matter what we did to adjust it, it was 74F in that room.
We went down for a drink in the bar and had excellent service from Joanne. She did a great job.
Check out was fast and simple.

Room Tip: doesn't matter which room, really. The walls are very adequately sound proofed.

Hello Jlevack,

Thank you for an excellent review, your feedback is appreciated. We are happy to see that overall you are pleased with the hotel.

The Guest Service Manager and I have started brainstorming to see what can be done about the check in process. Perhaps there is something we can do to speed up the process and be service oriented at the same time. Thank you for the feedback about this and please let me know the next time you are staying with us. I would really like the opportunity to meet you and speak in person.

We've stayed at the ALT at the Halifax airport three times and can't believe we haven't posted a review yet.

We cannot say enough about this hotel - we've enjoyed each of our stays there - the last time in April. The clean and modern design is noticeable from the minute you arrive in the lobby and continues into your comfortable and stylish room.

The queen sized beds are sooo comfy with lush duvets and pillows. We always request a room with a runway view as you can sit in the Italian lounger and watch all the action on the runway.

The public spaces are well appointed with beautiful furniture and fixtures providing a nice spot to relax and have a drink. We can't forget to mention the "grab and go" food prepared by Kitchen Door Catering - a local company that offers a varied and delicious selection of ready to heat / ready to heat food. There's definitely something everyone can enjoy - even the pickiest eater!

The staff have always been very personable and helpful when checking in and assisting with any requests or questions we've had.

The fact that this hotel is attached to the airport is a definite plus - especially when catching an early morning winter flight to sun destinations. No need to travel in the cold via shuttle and you can dress lightly in preparation for your trip down south!

We will be back and definitely recommend the ALT - the location can't be beat!

My husband and I had our first Alt experience last night. I say "experience" because the Alt's way of doing business is quite different from other North American hotels we've visited. The hotel is very new, very functional, and VERY close to the airport. You are literally just a pedway from the airport itself. That alone is enough reason to stay at the Alt, but it gets better. The rooms are designed in a urban loft chic, with each floor having a colour code. You will have a choice of one or two queen beds. There are no kings. I did find it strange that the heat/AC controls were in Fahrenheit, but that just required a bit of math on our part. It's the first Alt to have a pool, albeit a small one, and the impressive fitness centre is open 24-7. The beds and pillows were super-comfy and the staff very friendly and attentive. You can buy gourmet food items (yes there are veg and gluten-free options) and beverages in the lobby area, and there are lots of cosy little nooks you can curl up in with your glass of wine. There's even a pool table. The food area also has an oven, panini press, toaster and microwave if you happen to have some food with you. I also loved that Wi-Fi was included and that there are parking packages available. And, even right next to the airport, it was very quiet. We had a great night's sleep. We will be staying at the Alt again.

Usually airport Hotels are older and seem very worn. This was the furthest from the case at the ALT Halifax Airport Hotel - My flights were delayed and I did not arrive in Halifax until about Midnight. The fact that within a ten minute or less walk from the terminal across a covered pathway to the Hotel. You are welcomed by the staff with a big smile - There is a nice modern bar right in the lobby open until 2am! The grab and go food was fresh and tasty and I was able to get a nice sandwich and a fruit salad at midnight and it still tasted great. In the morning they had coffee and breakfast for purchase to grab and go or enjoy in the lobby which had several seating areas and even a pool table. All very modern. The room was just as pleasing. There are only two room types - King or two queens. I had a king room that overlooked the airport. The blackout curtains worked like a charm to block out the lights from the airport. The room was clean and modern in every way. The bathroom was beautiful with tall shower and rainfall showerhead. The bed was comfortable and relaxing. Was even better when I had to leave at 5:30am!

This one was a total surprise; was expecting a Holiday Inn Express or the like but ALT clicks. They are connected to the airport for those early AM flights and the hotel was efficient and hip; did IKEA design this one??? Not cozy but it sure was a standout!

Last time I live in ALT Hotel is last month. this hotel is very convenient to go to airport in Halifax. You can go through from the second floor in hotel to the airport. Do not need to find which entrance to go into the hotel. Because I do not have credit card, so they are also accept the debit card but I need to give 100 dollars deposit for one night and they will return the deposit when I check out. their service very considerate. Everyday have room service and if you do not need them clean your room you can just call them and tell them. You can tell them everything you need and their attitude is great.
If must have so question about alt , that is the price is little bit expensive. one night about 160 dollars include the tax. But the environment in this hotel is good so the ALT deserve this price.

Alt has very great service. When we booked the hotel we asked for a runway veiw room.

We got to the hotel and they put us on the too floor with a 360 veiw of the airport.

The staff at alt are great and I would highly recommend stating here for your next vacation
