Germain Hotels Celebrates Calgary Opening


Canadian hotelier Germain Hotels has officially opened its 19th property in Canada: Alt Hotel Calgary University District.

This is the group’s third establishment in Calgary, following the opening of Le Germain Hotel Calgary in 2010 and Alt Hotel Calgary East Village in 2018, marking the hotelier group’s first property inauguration in Canada since 2019.

The hotel is ideally situated in the heart of University District, a thoughtfully designed, mindfully made urban community in Calgary’s northwest. University District is an award-winning community. It is the first community in Alberta that has been certified LEED-ND Platinum, the highest distinction, for its sustainability efforts.

Alt Hotel Calgary University District also provides convenient access to nearby facilities in the surrounding area including The University of Calgary, the Alberta Children’s Hospital, Olympic Oval, McMahon Stadium, Foothills Medical Centre and CF Market Mall.

The hotel offers 155 guest rooms and more than 4,000 square feet of meeting and event space across four meeting rooms, two boardrooms and one creative lounge. Hotel guests can enjoy a complimentary 24-hour gym, on-site underground parking and pet-friendly guest rooms.

“We take immense pride in introducing our second Alt Hotel in Calgary, located in the dynamic community of University District,” says Marie Pier Germain, Vice-President, Marketing and Sales Germain Hotels. “This hotel opening is a special one for us, as it’s our first one since the end of the pandemic. We look forward to providing our guests with an extraordinary stay while they explore the city and surrounding area, whether they are travelling for business or leisure.”

The Calgary University District property is Germain Hotels’ first Silver LEED certified hotel (application pending). The property employs innovative techniques to reduce waste and promote resource conservation.

Germain Hotels is also starting construction of Alt Hotel Ottawa Airport. Opening in 2025, the hotel will be Germain Hotels’ third establishment in Ottawa.
