We stayed here twice during our trip to Halifax to see our niece's graduation, with a couple of days in Moncton in between. We had two different rooms, which could not have been different. The first room was a little cramped, and what we were told was a "queen" sized bed felt more like a double. The room had not... More

Located right by Spring Garden Road and across from the Public Garden, this hotel is extremely friendly and comfortable. The restaurant does a great breakfast buffet and downtown is right outside the door. The only small problem was the last check-in time, 3 pm, but staff gave us breakfast vouchers for the inconvenience. Rooms are small but nicely appointed and... More

I could not have asked for friendlier service throughout my stay. It was a clean and classic hotel that was centrally located and had great value for money. I was here for an interview at the hospital and the location was perfect. My room was starting to show its age, with door dings from the closet and bathroom doors hitting... More

Not that Admiral Lord Nelson ever slept here, but had he ventured this far north he might well have chosen this place as a comfortable berth. It's a modern smart hotel with pretentiions to old world superiority and values. It carries it off very well. Reception is manned by cheerful and generally helpful knowledgeable staff Rooms are clean spacious and... More

If you are visiting Halifax, spend some time at this hotel. You will be pleased. The friendly, helpful staff; the price, the cleanliness and location of the hotel are a large bonus. As well, there is underground parking. The hotel always asks your opinion and "listens".

Thus long standing icon hotel in Halifax has undergone iterative upgrades and is thoroughly modern, extremely well located and definitely customer centric. While a frequent stop for bus tours, they never detract from the fundamental business of this hotel and its commitment to customers

Excellent hotel. Very professional and friendly staff from the doorman to front desk and housekeepers. Rooms well appointed and comfortable. Not a cookie cutter hotel. Within easy walking of many things that Halifax has to offer. I stay here 4 times a year and have for many years(20+) and would highly recommend.

I stayed here with my dog and found the service to be excellent. They were very welcoming and accommodating to my dog. My room was large and the bed was very comfortable. The view was lovely. The bathroom was small, but that is not unusual in historic hotels.

Located centrally in Halifax, this elegant hotel has so much charm. The lobby is breathtaking with flowers, chandeliers and a stunning ceiling. The staff were very friendly - check in / out were super fast. We parked our car and walked everywhere for the weekend ! The rooms were well equipped and reasonably sized for a downtown hotel. Wi-fi was... More
