A Review Of Our Stay At The Alt Hotel
On our recent cross Canada travel adventure, we first arrived in the Province of Newfoundland. Below, is a review of our 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 this is a unique and very successful Canadian family-run business.
The 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! Celebrating over 30 years in business, they are continually expanding their network of properties across the Nation.
“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
This hotel is ideally located right downtown in St. John’s 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.
Harbourview King Room
As soon as you enter the front doors of the Alt Hotel, you immediately realize you have stepped into something 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.
We arrived well after midnight and were greeted and checked by a friendly staff member. 24 service is available at the front desk at all times, for those checking in late or who may need assistance during their stay.
We were checked in quickly and booked into our King Room with Harbor View. Even though the room is smaller than most other hotel rooms we’ve stayed at, it is very well appointed with all the modern conveniences you would expect in this class of hotel and more.
The rooms are very stylish with a modern and unique flair of its own. Complete with extra large floor to ceiling windows and a bath that has a special spa looking feel!
The king bed and bedding was lush and extremely comfortable. In room wifi was excellent along with a desk and chair with plugins, making this hotel perfect for pleasure and business travelers.
There’s complimentary in room coffee and tea as well. 🙂
This hotel was more than we expected and a wonderful way to start our Canada vacation. The photo above was taken from our room looking out at St. John’s harbor. The cruise ship pier is just on the other side of the harbor.

Concluding My Review Of The Alt Hotel St. John’s
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!
If you’re looking for an upscale and modern looking hotel in a perfect location in downtown St. John’s, this is the perfect place. Whether for pleasure or business travel, this hotel is a great choice!
