As a frequent traveller who spends many nights in airport hotels my preference is to avoid shuttles and find hotels that are physically attached to or within walking distance of the terminal. For many years the only option at Toronto Pearson’s Airport has been the Sheraton, which is a good hotel if somewhat dated. The recently-built and well named Alt is an excellent Alternative to the Sheraton. To get to the Alt you take the inter-terminal train to the parking structure at the end of the line, and then it is a short walk to the front door (why that connection hasn’t been enclosed or at least covered is a mystery, but no big deal). The Alt is a low-cost concept by the group who operate Le Germaine Hotels, a high-end Canadian chain. The hotel interior and amenities have clearly been driven by budget considerations, but with sufficient flair to make them an enjoyable and fresh experience. The lobby is attractive, the rooms are well designed and pleasant, and the finishes are creative, although the extensive use of imitation wood-laminate looks a bit cheap and will probably wear poorly. The “restaurant” provides self-serve pre-packaged foods, with nothing particularly exciting, but quite acceptable for a quick snack. Recommended.
