Groupe Germain Hospitalité plans to bring its ALT Hotel brand to downtown Ottawa, Canada.
“Our research shows that there is a real need for quality, well-designed and affordable accommodations and meeting space here in Ottawa,” said Jean-Yves Germain, co-founder and co-president of Groupe Germain Hospitalité, in an announcement. “We’re thrilled to be continuing our national expansion while fulfilling that need with our ALTernative brand of hospitality.”
Designed by Lemay Michaud and Richard Chmiel Architects, the 12-floor, 148-room ALT Hotel Ottawa will feature approximately 4,000 square feet of meeting space, a gym, and eco-responsible components such as geothermal heating and cooling. Guests will also be able to enjoy ALT Hotel Ottawa’s “basic luxuries” such as complimentary Wi-Fi.
Located on Slater Street on one of the last undeveloped sites in the city’s downtown business district, ALT Hotel Ottawa will be built into Broccolini’s mixed-use complex that also houses THE SLATER’s 164 luxury condominiums. Construction of the complex will get underway next spring and ALT Hotel Ottawa is expecting to welcome its first guests in fall 2014.
