When I saw last year that they were building a hotel in the Viscount discount parking lot , I laughed - who would want to stay in a parking lot?!??! However, I had the chance to stay at Hotel le Germain in downtown Toronto this fall, where they advertised the new ALT as their discount brand. I was intrigued enough to try it. I've stayed at Alt twice in the last month, once after a very late flight by myself and once with kids the night before a very early flight. The place scores 10/10 for convenience, comfort (beds and pillows are great) and grooviness (as one would expect with a Hotel le Germain franchise). This place is no frills but stylish. No big lobby but cool lounge with PCs, Macs and a fireplace. No restaurant but a cafe/bar for anything from light breakfast to drinks in the evening. Rooms have 1 or 2 excellent beds with a variety of pillows depending on your request. No pool or nightclub, but that's not what you want when you are just going from flight to bed or vice versa. Despite the airport locale, it was reasonably quiet. Plus there is just one price, no sales, no gimmicks. Soon to be offering stay and park packages. I will definitely be taking advantage of that option. Park at the hotel, sleep, get on the monorail for the terminals without returning to your car. The only reason I didn't give the hotel 5/5 rating is check in. I reserved online and got confirmation emails but for both visits but each time, they couldn't find my reservation. They knew I needed a hypoallergenic pillow and preferred a higher floor, but could not find my reservation. Fifteen minutes to check in is just too much. But, the hotel is new and staff training may be the issue. I will definitely be back.
