TORONTO PEARSON WELCOMES ALT HOTEL TO THE AIRPORT

TORONTO, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - The GTAA is excited to announce that Groupe Germain Hospitality will be building and operating ALT Hotel located at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Construction will begin shortly on this 'no frills-chic' hotel inspired by trends in Europe and Asia.  The 149 room hotel will be located adjacent to Terminals 1 and 3, at the end of the LINK train line.  This prime location will allow guests easy access to accommodations at the airport.

The ALT Hotel Toronto Pearson will offer more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space in a modern setting.  In addition, the hotel will include a gym and workout area and the property's lobby will feature a café and reading areas.  The hotel will have 13 floors housing comfortable rooms with a clever and original design.  The interior will reflect the design that characterizes ALT Hotels' signature style of chic interiors without any superfluous details. 

"We are very excited to be working with Groupe Germain Hospitality," said Lloyd McCoomb, President and CEO for the GTAA.  "The ALT Hotel concept is an ideal fit for our business and leisure guests who are looking for simple, yet stylish accommodations close to the airport at an affordable price."

"An analysis of the Canadian market has shown that there is a very clear need for this type of hotel, especially for business customers and transit passengers," said Christiane Germain, Co-president and CEO of Groupe Germain Hospitality. 

The ALT Hotel concept is flexible and allows for rapid development because of its construction method, which uses the concept of the pre-fabricated room. 

The new ALT Hotel Toronto Pearson is scheduled to open in the spring of 2012.
