The hotel was right across the street from the event I was attending. It was within great proximity to nice restaurants, universities and it was really great to walk along Park and Spring Garden. The service that I received was good and I would recommend it to others. The staff were very professional and accommodating.

This hotel was build in the 1920's and the entrance way and foyer are magnificent. The white gloved doormen make you feel like you are the most important person in the world. The rooms are spacious, bright and everything is perfect. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Halifax - it's right across from the Public Gardens which... More

Stayed here for one night. This hotel is in a good location -- right next to the public garden and a little bit of a walk from the waterfront (but not too far), and convenient to other shopping. Check-in was quick and the staff were welcoming. The room was also pretty nice. I think the snack basket with all sorts... More

Don't let the old school lobby with the brass elevator doors scare you. The Lord Nelson is a great hotel with charm and good service. The rooms are fresh and modern and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel so perfectly located across from Halifax Public Gardens and Dalhousie. I will certainly stay here again.

The hotel has a great location on Spring Garden row.....close to local shopping, the VG hospital if you happen to be going there...and a 10 minute walk from... More

They go out of their way to provide personal service to each guest. Upon learning my son was attending his first year university in Halifax the front desk sent up a letter containing many useful tips for getting his students card and books as well as a map of the campus. In his room they had left a card and... More

Love this hotel. Lovely decor. Good service & personnel. Especially like the location right beside the beautiful Public Gardens. "The Arms" restaurant has wonderful food, and great ambiance, and its renovation means it is now wheelchair accessible. But accessibility is an issue. The parking lot contractor continues to close off level 1 of the parking lot. Which left us stranded... More

I stayed for four nights with my daughter and her two children. We had a suite- two beds and a pull-out couch. It was a very comfortable room with a kitchenette and quite a bit of space. We found the staff to be very attentive, especially with the children.
