This is the best Hotel I have ever stayed in. I went to visit a friend and I stayed at this hotel and it was tremendously amazing. The staff are loving and the rooms are equipped pretty well. Unlike a hotel I visited in Seattle you don't have to pay for microwave it's already given to you. They don't have... More

This is our third time staying at the Lord Nelson in the passed 11 years. We love the location, just a short walk to the waterfront and right there in the middle of the shopping district and many restaurants on Spring Garden. The hotel is very well managed and is always spotless. All staff, from the friendly doormen right to... More

Was at a conference in Halifax, wanted a nice hotel with parking at a reasonable rate. This was it! Room clean, nice staff, aveda toiletries, underground parking. Parking a bit pricey at $24 per day but it is downtown Halifax

Nice hotel, reasonable price. Clean and well-maintained, with very helpful front desk staff. The location is good, too, halfway between Dalhousie and the waterfront. There is plenty to eat and drink right around the hotel, ranging from Smitty's for breakfast to Turkish food and a handful of pubs. I plan on staying here again the next time I'm in Halifax.

We have stayed in many different hotels in and around the downtown Halifax area, and for a number of reasons now prefer the Lord Nelson. The service is well above average, in that the staff seem totally genuine, open and friendly - no fake smiles anywhere. The restaurant food was great, with extremely attentive service, so there is little point... More

Just returned from a great stay in this city and this great hotel. From the moment we arrived at the entrance to be greeted by a very happy helpful doorman we enjoyed a great stay at this hotel. Everyone was so ready and willing to help and always with a friendly smile. The room was spacious and kept extremely clean... More

My room was better than expected. The bathroom was small with no counter space but I enjoyed the Aveda products. There was no bathtub just the stand up shower but that was perfect for me. The shower had stone tiles and looked newly renovated.The rest of the room was spacious and well appointed. The bed, with its 4 plump pillows,... More

+ Close to the university (was visiting my brother going to school there) + 24/7 McDonald's and Subway right outside for affordable food, and a convenience store for smaller things + Close walk to the water, where there is a lot of pretty sights and stuff to do + Right next to the gardens, which I'm sure are awesome when...

I stayed one night at the Lord Nelson. Staff were friendly but the woman at check in was not very knowledgeable about what restaurants were open in the area on Good Friday. She also did not know anything about transport to the airport except where the terminal was located. The hotel was clean. The room was very warm and dry.... More

I have stayed for years at the Lord Nelson, for up to a week at a time and often 3-4 times/year. I have referred friends, family and business colleagues here. I know Halifax well and have lots of ties to the city. If I am not staying with family or friends, this is my hotel of choice. I arrived at... More
