ALT Hotel Quebec City burst onto the scene with a brazen proposition: no bell hops, no valets, no seasonal price changes, no tiny shampoo bottles. It’s a sleek, modern, à-la-carte alternative to huge chains and dated inns. The so-called “service light” approach means the decadence is in the details. High ceilings, luxurious Egyptian-cotton bedding, in-room Keurig machines and spa-style shower rooms are all standard at the ALT Hotel Quebec City.
The décor is aimed squarely at the young, tech-savvy traveller. A vibrant Lomography collage welcomes guests in the lobby, along with stylish neon furnishings and Chic magazines for the taking. The 126 rooms feature vibrant works from up-and-coming artist—something to gaze at from while relaxing in the ergonomic chairs wrapped in the oversized fluffy bathrobes. SkySpa, a rooftop Nordic-style sauna, is only steps away and offers special deals to ALT Hotel Quebec City guests. Other extras, like the champagne-and-strawberries-romance treatment or dinner for two at the 3-star hotel restaurant can be added.
