“Favorite hotel by far!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This was my first visit to Quebec. Rooms were very clean and modern. Staff was polite and very helpful. I did not get a chance to shop but within the hotel they have small shops for the busy traveler. Looking in the windows I was impressed by the selection, again the shops were modern and clean. If I ever get a chance to take a vacation I will certainly visit for a R&R trip!

Very clean hotel in the Ste-Foy burrough of Québec City. Practical room set-up for business travellers. Only downside is location. If you're doing business in Ste-Foy or near the bridges, the location is perfect. But if work brings you to the historic district or the National Assembly, the ALT Québec is a bit out of the way.

This hotel has all the ingredients necessary to make your stay enjoyable, whether on business or pleasure. Comfortable beds, convenient location, friendly staff, great price, and much more. I will be back and will consider Alt as a first on my future travels to Quebec.

Went to this hotel for a business trip and really liked my experience.
Price was good, room was very well decorated for an entry level one, it was very clean and staff was very polite and courteous.
Would not hesitate to go back again!

So pleasantly surprised with this hotel. My boyfriend and I stayed here Oct 13th-15th (2 nights). Check-in was smooth, friendly and informative. Upon arriving in the room we were so surprised at how modern it was AND we were greated but soft jazz music that was on the tv - just an nice added touch. The room was very clean with very modern amenities including flat screen tv. The bathroom was my favourite part tho - there was an all glass stand up shower with removable shower head (water pressure was also excellent! The shower leaked a little, but I don't think I've ever been in a stand up shower that didn't) The lighting was great and there was an extra make up mirror. The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows.
Side note: They had fresh McIntosh apples right by the elevators every day (on the main level) which was great if you were running out and needed a snack for later! (Not sure if this is an all the time thing or not.)

The location is great. You're directly across the street from a gigantic mall and surrounded by lots of restaurants and downtown hot spots. For breakfast, we ate at "Cosmos" just down the street. Great food with fantastic portions. There's also a Starbucks in the same plaza as the hotel - bonus!

Overall, we had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend this hotel as well as stay here again!

Room Tip: I think we stayed on the 5th floor. It was really quiet, and our view was average.

Loved this hotel! It’s a little gem I found great reviews of here on TripAdvisor and was excited to experience it for myself over a long weekend getaway with my boyfriend. We stayed two nights, and were so pleasantly surprised! The hotel is very modern, clean, and chic, with all the modern amenities. When we arrived in our room, there was music playing quietly and it certainly added a welcoming feel! The room was spotless, and staff were friendly and helpful.

Parking was a bit of a pain at times as it was rather full, but they have access to free underground parking when you get the gate remote from the front desk. The body products (soap, lotion, shampoo) line was fresh and delightful, and the beds were very comfortable!

Location was great! It’s close to many restaurants, shopping mall, and just a short drive from Old Quebec or to the Aquarium. We were able to enjoy a lot on foot. The philosophy of losing the “frills” of many chains and other hotels doesn’t mean that they cut back on any of the essentials! What they do is done right, and I didn’t even miss the ‘extras’ that they forgo for increased value!

Dear Ms Amanda,

This is such a nice review!
I must say I especially liked this part: ''What they do is done right''.
It is one of our guidelines in our everyday work, indeed.

Kind regards,

When in Quebec, this is my choice! The place is perfect for business travel or for couples. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the bathroom has this "wow factor". A nice detail: they turn the radio in your room to a soft jazz channel so you're welcomed by music.
You get luxury for a very reasonable price (135 CAD for my room). The location is perfect, near everything from big shopping malls to restaurants.
Le Bistango, the hotel's restaurant, is the place for fine dining and you get a four course meal with a glass of wine for 50 CAD.
Staff is young and friendly.
If I absolutely must say something negative... Well... It would be that the towels could use softener.
