April 28, 2015 marked the official opening of Alt Hotel Winnipeg. As the first location in Western Canada, Winnipeg is proud and thankful to provide a home for this chic hotel.
Occupying the 9th-19th floors of Centrepoint, the hotel is an important tentant: “Scott Stephanson, president of Longboat Development Corp., the developer of the project along with Artis REIT, said Centrepoint would not have been possible without the Alt Hotel (Winnipeg Free Press, April 30).”
The hotel features 160 rooms at a year round fixed rate of $149 and has been dubbed “no frills chic.” But with its modern, bold design and beautiful art installations, guests are in for a treat. The Merchant Bar and Kitchen is attached to the hotel, serving delicious Latin and Asian fare. This beautiful addition to downtown Winnipeg demonstrates the continued growth and faith in our downtown.
Group Germain Hotels understands the vision for downtown Winnipeg: “”Winnipeg has great appeal for us on many levels,” she said. “The city is literally blossoming on a cultural, architectural and gastronomic standpoint” said Christiane Germain, the co-president of the company (Winnipeg Free Press, April 30).”
