Alt Hotel opens in Calgary’s University District

The opening of Alt Hotel Calgary University District marks the 19th property in Canada for Germain Hotels.

The hotel offers 155 guest rooms, meeting and events spaces, a 24-hour gym and on-site underground parking

The sustainability-driven property has a strong focus on celebrating all things local, with 100% Canadian-made beds, locally sourced bath products in each room and a rich tapestry of local art featured in its lobby. It also employs innovative techniques to reduce waste and promote resource conservation.

The hotel is ideally situated in the heart of University District, a mindfully made urban community in Calgary’s northwest. It is the first community in Alberta that has been certified LEED-ND Platinum, the highest distinction, for its sustainability efforts.

Guests can also enjoy the many amenities University District has to offer, including its vibrant Retail Main Street, outdoor parks, pathways, restaurants and retailers.

The hotel also offers easy access to the Trans-Canada Highway, leading west towards Banff and the Canadian Rockies.

“This hotel opening is a special one for us, as it’s our first one since the end of the pandemic, says Marie Pier Germain, Vice-President, Marketing and Sales Germain Hotels.

 “For us, creating an emotional connection with our teams and guests, as well as with communities across the country is a priority. It is with great pleasure that we have donated 25 nights (a $6,000 value) to the Children’s Hospital Foundation so they can give back to needy families throughout the year.”
