Affordable and contemporary are the cornerstone traits of St.John's newest hotel. Opened in late 2017, the Alt Hotel is the perfect addition to the local hotel scene. Its big, comfy beds, stunning views, spacious boardrooms and modern design make this hotel perfect for anything from business travel to a sweet staycation.
The lobby of the Alt Hotel immediately sets the impression for your stay. With its open concept design, bright detailing and unique use of space, you're quickly aware that you've entered a really chic hotel. As Lauren checked in, I couldn't help but peruse the wall of snacks and gorgeous bath products they had available for purchase. Not to mention, I had to sit in the cool rocking chair.
We were blessed with a harbour view room on our stay - and I'm not exaggerating, it really was a blessing. Although we both have spent the majority of our lives living in St.John's, seeing the harbour framed this way will always take our breath away.
Soon our camera rolls were filled with every angle possible of this perfect view, and we began noticing the rest of this super cool room.
First off, yes, the rooms here may be a little "smaller" than other hotels, but you would never know, because it just doesn't feel that way. There are numerous strategically placed mirrors and glass dividers reflecting the light and harbour view at every turn. Plus, they've made an incredibly smart use of space with things like under-bed drawers, hooks built into the wall design, and hidden closets.
The designers of the Alt Hotel also integrated a bunch of really cool tech into this modern beauty. The bathroom has a feature for mood lighting which changes the colour of the light emitted down the iconic glass puffin wall - very cool! Throughout the room there are various panels with all of the crucial touch-changed necessities like temperature, lights and the automatic blinds. As well, the bedside panel conveniently features a 'Do Not Disturb' button.
Our recommendation to you is to push this button when you wake, make yourself a coffee, and watch the sun rise over the harbour narrows and enjoy the fact that at the Alt Hotel, there is no check out time.
