ALT Hotel Halifax Airport
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Enfield
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2014

I picked up my mother at the airport during a late april snowstorm, and we decided to spend the night instead of driving the two hours to the valley. The hotel does minimalism well, perfect for a stop-over somewhere else. I do find the rates high, and the rooms are small, the shower is visible from the sleeping area- not the greatest if you are sharing a room with people you are not intimate with. Only other complaint is the pool- great that it was there, but there must have been some mistake in construction because it is humorously tiny. Nice gym though. Comfy beds.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel at the end of March as a park and fly hotel before our trip to Jamaica. The hotel has a perfect location - attached by pedway to the Halifax International Airport. It has a small fitness centre, a small pool, no restaurant per se but it has this funky lounge bar spot that serves drinks and you can buy breakfast and lunch and supper items. If you are looking for more food, you can walk across the pedway to the airport and eat and drink there or you can drive into Halifax/Dartmouth and eat and drink there. We did and you are not far.
The rate for park and fly is a bit steep - $219.00 which is more expensive than the other park and fly hotels in the area (Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Quality Inn) however nothing is more convenient than parking in the parking garage, come into the hotel and walk the pedway to airport. No fighting for a shuttle, no worry that shuttle is full and have to wait for the next one, no going outside freezing in the snow and cold to get on the shuttle. I have played that game and it is not how i want to start my vacation. We will pay to stay at the ALT. Room was great, kind of like a industrial/loft with exposed concrete, really European style shower/bathroom that had all the amenities needed. The ALT was perfect. We will be back.

Room Tip: All the rooms were great, we had a view of the airport and runway. And nicely insulated so we did n...

Hello Willram,

We really appreciate the review and thank you for taking the time to write it.

You are correct, our Stay and Fly is more expensive, but the security and convenience of the parking and location of the hotel cannot be beat. No shuttle is required as it is a quick walk over to the airport through an indoor pedway.

Thank you very much for the great review, truly appreciated.

The rooms are very clean , modern and "simply" luxurious , as they are going for . Beautiful bathroom and shower.
Pool is lovely and relaxing and the gym is one of the best I have seen at a hotel , lots of variety .
There is a 24 hour grab and go food bar , and alcohol bar as well but unsure of those hours . The food is quick and convenient , slightly overpriced however.
Very convenient location , basically just had to roll out of bed to catch 5 am flight .
The nicest hotel I have stayed in , with very reasonable rates.
I will recommend to anyone travelling in the Halifax area.
Oh , there is no free parking , so make sure you leave your car at the park and fly or park it in airport parking before you go and settle in !

Excellent location, service, and philosophy all in one hotel.

It was such a pleasant surprise to be invited to relax and enjoy the lounge and 24 hr cafe . Their Customer needs philosophy is fantastic.
I would definitely plan to stay in ALT hotels again.

We primarily stayed at this hotel for convenience; the location was ideal, as we had to board our flight to our Caribbean vacation at such an early time in the morning.
We were so pleasantly surprised, that we plan to stay at this hotel for future visits. I fly to Halifax for regular business meetings, that I've decided to make this place as the hotel of choice

Room Tip: The pool and exercise rooms are top-notch

Arrived very late at Halifax airport due to missed connections and was delighted to find a hotel that was extremely convenient, reasonably priced, very stylish, very comfortable and friendly. Recommend this hotel to anyone in transit needing a bed for the night! vistWorth a detour to stay at this hotel, but the likelihood is that you're arriving by plane and no detour is necessary. Why would you have the inconvenience of a shuttle bus when this gem is on the doorstep! Just wanted a simple breakfast and was going to visit a coffee outlet in the airport, but friendly hotel staff offered a welcome complimentary coffee and we had a very enjoyable breakfast before the check battle re-commenced.

We arrived late on a flight from Toronto and the hotel is attached to the air terminal so it was easy to get to.
Rooms are very modern, beds comfortable and we got a good nights sleep.
Breakfast was simple from the fridge, but everything you need. Eggs, coffee buns, bread, cereal sandwiches etc. A for a price.
The location is very convenient. I recommend this hotel.
