Alt Hotel University District: Where Sustainability Meets Comfort and Style

Prepare for a unique hotel experience as we unveil the opening of our highly anticipated Alt Hotel in University District.

Smart Design and Construction

At Alt Hotels, we believe that true style encompasses aesthetics and responsible choices. Energy-efficient appliances and water-saving fixtures are standard features in every Alt Hotel. Our new construction employs even more techniques to minimize waste and promote resource conservation.

We also take pride in selecting sustainable materials, including our crafted wood furniture from Renova, a trusted canadian local supplier known for non-toxic materials and responsible sourcing.

Local Focus

Our spaces celebrate the rich tapestry of local talent with carefully chosen paintings and sculptures in the lobby. 

In the rooms, experience ultimate comfort with 100% Canadian beds, sourced from renowned experts. Our commitment to local sourcing extends to wellness products through our collaboration with Bella Pella.

During your stay, enjoy snacks and beverages sourced from a diverse array of local producers. From Grizzly Paw Soda to Cochu Chocolatier or treats from Going Nuts, you can taste of the best Calgary has to offer.

Part of Something Bigger

University District is the first community in Alberta and the largest in Canadian history to earn the LEED ranking for its sustainability efforts. With its dynamic blend of residential, commercial, and recreational spaces, the neighbourhood offers endless opportunities to immerse yourself in the local culture.

As an Alt Hotel guest, embrace an active lifestyle by leaving your car behind and exploring the pedestrian-friendly pathways and dedicated bike lanes within the neighbourhood.
