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

The same attention and friendliness was evident throughout all levels of the staff starting from the those managing the... More

The staff was exceptionally helpful and pleasant, our room was very comfortable and clean, the beds were extremely comfortable. Each time we saw housekeeping personnel in the hallway they made sure to ask if our room was good and did we need anything else to improve our stay. Prime location for walking to all the downtown city sights, shopping and... More

The hotel, while very centrally located, is in need of some upgrading. The rooms are tiny and the supposed queen size bed they told us we were getting turned out to be a double bed. It was very noisy too, as we overlooked South Park Street, right across from the Public Gardens. There was also no safe in the room... More
