Holiday

A Day at ALT Hotel Ottawa

Sometimes all you need is a little vacation. But even when I can't take time off work,I like to get away from the routine and go on a little staycation! It does SO much to my productivity levels and overall well-being. When I heard about the new Alt Hotel downtown, I knew I had to check it out. 
Visitors to Ottawa now have even more choice of quality accommodation to choose from thanks to the opening of Alt Hotel Ottawa
The newly-built boutique hotel is just a few blocks away from the Parliament Buildings and is minutes away from the city's iconic ByWard Market. The location is prime for both leisure and business travel.

I love the contemporary design of the hotel-it has so much character and is very millennial friendly. I was so intrigued by the great amenities offered yet reasonably priced room rates so I decided to do some research on why that's the case. As it turns out,  the company specialises in a ‘no frills chic’ concept where guests enjoy all the luxury of a high-end hotel experience without the price tag. 
The lobby is absolutely beautiful. As soon as you enter the building, you are greeted by a creative art installation, Altexpo. This is a mural composed of 9,000 small photos, mostly taken by Jean-François Frenette. It's so neat that guests can add their own images to a live LCD feed by posting on Instagram using the hashtag #altexpo! Love this genius concept.
I would describe the hotel lobby as very "casual chic". There are computers equipped with high-speed Internet that guests can use free of charge. 
Also in the lobby is the Altcetera Café, the perfect place for guests to enjoy a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner. The café offers a variety of simple, delicious food prepared by local caterer Epicuria . There are also a range of hot beverages by Canadian tea specialists DAVIDsTEA.
I loved the place so much I hung around for a bit and even got some blogging work done! If you ever visit Ottawa, this place would be a great place to stay right in the heart of the nation's capital.

XO,

Amira
