Canada’s vibrant capital city will also welcome ALT Hotel Ottawa to its hotel landscape in winter 2016. The 148-guestroom hotel, run by owned by family-owned boutique Canadian hotel company Le Groupe Germain, is located in a 17-story mixed-use building at 199 Slater Street. In an article in the Ottawa Business Journal, Le Groupe Germain’s director of development, Hugo Germain, stated, “We’re going to be working with a pricing strategy that is flat all the year so that we are able to have a guest that knows exactly what he expects when he gets into a room.” The three-star boutique hotel brand ALT aims to keep room rates low by offering smaller rooms that don’t include baggage handlers or free newspapers. The new hotel is expected to be popular among tourists who want to stay close the city’s popular attractions. For more information, visit groupegermain.ca/en/hotels/alt.
