University District (U/D) is pleased to announce that Alt Hotel Calgary University District has welcomed its first hotel guests in the neighbourhood. Located along a bustling Retail Main Street at 482 McLaurin Street NW, the new LEED-certified property is just steps away from Calgary’s best restaurants and retailers and five employment hubs, including the Alberta Children’s Hospital and the University of Calgary.
Alt Hotel guests can access the many amenities and greenspace in the area like the three-acre Central Commons Park as well as quick access to the Alberta Rocky Mountains and downtown Calgary.
This is the third Germain Hotels property in Calgary, in addition to the Le Germain Hotel in downtown Calgary and Alt Hotel Calgary East Village. Known for its eco-friendly comfort and sleek urban signature, the Alt Hotel is designed with guests in mind. Later this fall, a full-service coffee shop on the main floor and restaurant will become available. The property boasts 155 guest rooms set across 15 storeys, in addition to six meeting rooms, 63 underground parking stalls and 16 accessible rooms.
Says Maureen Henderson, vice president of Community Experience for University of Calgary Properties Group, “We would like to warmly welcome Alt Hotel Calgary University District to our neighbourhood. Providing accommodation opportunities for guests visiting friends and family in U/D, to out of town visitors who may need to access the University of Calgary or Alberta Children’s Hospital, to tourists looking for a different area of the city to explore, the Alt Hotel is a convenient and valuable destination for many. We are proud to be extending our diverse offerings to the city with the exciting addition of the Alt Hotel.”
