SASKATOON — Group Germain Hotels has marked the opening of its
18th Canadian hotel property with the launch of Alt Hotel
Saskatoon. The hotel also represents the company’s first property
in Saskatchewan and fourth in the Prairies.
Located in downtown Saskatoon, the hotel boasts spectacular
views of the city and the South Saskatchewan River.
“We fell in love with Saskatoon,” says Hugo Germain,
director of Development, Group Germain Hotels. “The river right
in the heart of downtown gives this Prairie city a European flair
and Saskatoon’s dynamism is perfectly aligned with Alt Hotels’
personality. It must be said, if the intense cold characterizes the
city’s winters, the warmth of the welcome you receive more than
makes up for it.”
Representing an investment of nearly $35 million, Alt Hotel
Saskatoon offers 156 guestrooms across 14 floors. Like all Alt
Hotels, the property was designed by LemayMichaud Architecture
Design, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and in-room workstation
with an ergonomic chair and connectivity panel for electronic
The hotel also offers Chromecast streaming, a well-equipped gym,
approximately 4,500 sq. ft. of meeting space, an on-the-go food
counter (Altcetera) and will soon offer on-site breakfast.
General management of the hotel has been entrusted to Corinne
Lund, who has more than 25 years of customer service experience in
the hotel and tourism industry.
“Our teams have worked very hard over the past few months and
we look forward to welcoming our guests in order to share the Alt
experience,” says Lund.
