I’m a huge fan of the Hotel Le Germain brand as a boutique hotel aficionado – I was very excited to learn that they will be opening an ALT Hotel this coming Spring 2012. The ALT Hotel Toronto Pearson would be the third in the no-frills-chic affordable chain started by Groupe Germain Hospitality in 2007. With 149 rooms, the 13-storey ALT Hotel Toronto Pearson will be significantly smaller than the more upscale Sheraton Gateway Hotel located at Terminal 3 Toronto Pearson International Airport. Compared to both of their Hotel Le Germain Toronto properties located downtown at Mercer St. and Maple Leaf Square next to the Air Canada Centre, the ALT Hotel would be more affordable price friendly. The design will be similar to the two other ALT properties in Montreal andQuebec City
The hotel will be located at the end of the Link train line that shuttles passengers between terminals at Toronto Pearson International Airport. If your looking for simple, yet stylish accommodations close to the airport at an affordable price – the ALT Hotel Toronto is definitely a hotel to keep in mind! Rates will be $149 the whole year.
