Reviewed June 25, 2013

I would like to thank the friendly staff at the alt hotel at the stand field international airport for the best night stay in a hotel I have had in a while. They were always there to help and they gave you some insight in to the hotels history there was a pool table that my husband loved and great food and service. The rooms were amazing the bed was so comfy I could have slept all day. I would highly recommend this place if you are flying in or out of the airport very easy access to the airport from the hotel. The hotel has some very neat things in it like the furniture for the lounge. I hope everyone goes here and has the best stay of your life like I did I will for sure going back if its just for a night away or the night before I fly out

We were visiting Halifax and decided to stay at the new Alt Hotel.

The hotel lobby is modern in design and the front desk staff were great to deal with. In general the staff are in their early to late 20's, energetic in appearance and attitude. I think this is what the hotel is trying to achieve with it's design and staffing.

Just off the main desk there is an area that offers quick snacks to go as well as a bar. We tried several of the quick meals and were supprised by the great taste. The grilled cheese with double smoked bacon and tomato jam ... awesome.

If you prefer more variety there is a pedway that will take you to the main airport building where you can find several fast food outlets and limited shopping.

Our room was on the 11th floor and faced the airport runways. It was surprisingly quiet, no trouble sleeping, little noise and comfortable bed. Watching the planes arrive and depart became a spectater sport.

The Alt seems to have been built to be energy efficient. Your room key must be inserted in a keypad in order for the room lights to operate. The bathroom use water saving technologies in the shower and toilet. Heat and cooling is apparently accomplished using geo thermal energy.

Location, location, location. Being connected to the airport is great. We will definately use anytime we need to fly out.

I think that the Alt is a wlcome addition to Halifax

Thank you for the great review. We truly appreciate the comments and have shared the review with our entire team. We look forward to having you stay with us again. The grilled cheese sandwich is also a favorite amongst the staff.

Thank you

And it's fantastic. Still not quite finished but they even let us through a construction hallway to cross the incredibly convenient bridge to the airport. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Room was very funky, loved the modern decorating scheme. Bed was heavenly, wake up call on time. This place will be great when fully completed. Congratulations Alt Hotel!

Room Tip: We were on the 12th floor with a view of the runways and it is really well soundproofed

We stayed here for just one night but truely loved it. The staff were so welcoming and very informative. The rooms were the perfect size with everything that you needed. The fact that I didn't have to go outside after returning our car was just great. The rooms are very energy efficient which i thought was great. I will stay here again and again the fact that you don't have to rush to get to the airport is great. Loved it!!

I stayed at the Alt Hotel Halifax Airport just a few days after it opened. The hotel was still under construction so I did not experience the hotel in it's finished state. Nevertheless here are my impressions of my night there:

This is the first in-airport hotel at the Halifax airport and it was indeed a real pleasure to pick up my luggage and just walk across the street instead of waiting 20 minutes to half an hour for a shuttle to an off airport hotel, as I have always done. As I entered the lobby i was greeted with a pool table, little conversation areas with rocking chairs, lounge chairs with big pillows and a restaurant bar and computer bar . The look was a combination of coffee house chic and high tech with the vaulted ceilings and colourful decor.
I checked in and took the elevator to my room (1215) which was absolutely amazing. This was a corner room which had floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides. The entry into the room was a long one - a long corridor wall with the bed situated just on the other side. I had asked for super quiet and this is what I got. I heard no corridor noise at all that night. The bathroom had only a shower - no bath but with high end amenities and big fluffy towels. (Passion Fruit soap and shampoo products).

These were the positives, but there were some negatives. The bed was extremely firm -too firm for me. The mattress was encased in a plastic mattress protector with a thin polyester pad placed on top. This made for a very sweaty sleep unfortunately. The pillows and duvet were feather and down which I am allergic to - so my night was far from comfortable. I am sure if I had asked other bedding would have been available but it was after midnight when I checked in so I just made the best of it.

In the morning when I looked for a coffee pot there was none to be found. No coffee and no free breakfast like the other airport hotels. The view from the room was spectacular though and the vaulted ceilings of the room made it feel much larger than it was.

There is no hotel like the Alt in Halifax or at the airport and it definitely has a wow factor.

Will I stay there again.? Probably, if I can get alergy free bedding. I liked the look and feel of the place and the ultraquiet room. I missed the free coffee and breakfast but Tim Hortens is right across the street and they do have some nice health food choices in their own restaurant.

Overall I would recommend the Alt for an airport stopover.

Room Tip: the corner rooms are the nicest.

Hello Michele M,

Thank you for the great feedback about our hotel. We are working very hard at ensuring every guest has a great stay with us. We just wanted to let you know, that we do have hypo bedding and pillows available upon request. We would be happy to ensure that these are in your room for the future. The plastic feel you felt would be our bed bug covers that are on every mattress. We place a lot of emphasis on ensuring our hotels are bed bug free. In the future, we can place an extra sheet directly on top of that for those who may be sensitive sleepers. Once again, thank you for the great review and please let us know about the hypo bedding in the future. We can add this right to your profile, so it is complete every stay before you arrive.

I was coming to Nova Scotia and found that the ALT was opening in early June so I booked my room. The lovely receptionist contacted me right away to tell me that although they planned to be open June 1 that she would give me lots of warning if things were behind and they couldn't open on time. She contacted me twice along the way to give me updates. We rolled our bags in and stayed the night. This place is amazing. The rooms are absolutely the perfect size for a pm airport stay. It sits right at the Halifax airport so if you are renting a car and get in late leave the pick up date for the next morning because the car rental spot is literally steps away.
The rooms have absolutely all of the little necessities that you will need for a short stay which is what a good hotel at the airport is for. They have wonderful fruits and passion soap, shampoo hand cream and conditioner. A hair cap for your shower and a foot washing tap in the shower in case you just want to wash your feet before you jump into bed which is really nice after a long flight. A big screen tv and very very comfortable beds. I love that the plug for the cell phone is right next to the bed on top of the bedside table now on the floor across the room so you have to get up to answer your phone or text in the middle of the night. It's literally right next to me. Plus a black out blind on the window is always heaven - i just wish that the window opened because i sometimes find hotels air circulation isn't that great and i often wake up over heated in the night but the air feels pretty good despite not being able to open the window right now The lighting is good in the room and well thought out. It is very modern European looking, with clean lines and simplicity. There is a cafe on the lobby floor with fresh homemade food too. The vice president of operations was even there and came over to introduce himself to us and thank us for staying at the ALT. These guys know exactly what they are doing and I will be back!!
