We had a great stay. We were lucky and were upgraded. The downside was the cost of parking. I'm sure there were better deals around, even though the desk clerk said that there were not. The room itself was nice, wifi was great, and amenities were good.

We try to stay at the Lord Nelson, as much as possible, when we need a hotel in Halifax. The rooms are clean, large and comfortable, the location is great and the staff very welcoming and helpful. The Arms is a great place to eat, if you don't want to venture outside.

Spent two nights at the Lord Nelson on business. Fast check-in, very friendly front desk staff, comfortable room overlooking the Halifax Public Gardens. Underground parking was great. Location of hotel is very convenient to shops and restaurants on Spring Garden Rd, short walk to the Citadel and core of downtown is not all that far.

This hotel was very good. The hotel was in a good position for visiting attractions in the city, it had lovely comfortable rooms, with great beds, pillows and towels. I think it was the best hotel I stayed in during my two week holiday in Maritime Canada.

I stayed here for a business trip. First I heard a coworker complain that someone next door showered at 1am and woke him up. I didn't think too much of it. But then I realized how thin the walls are at this hotel. You can hear pretty much everything next door (shower, faucet, cough, hair dryer just to name a... More

The location is convenient to restaurants and local attractions. The rooms are comfortable and clean. This historic hotel is nicely refurbished. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were traveling with a group and had breakfast at the hotel both mornings; there was a good selection of breakfast foods, everything was fresh and well-prepared.

We stayed at the Lord Nelson in Halifax for 2 nights. The hotel is a historical hotel which has combined the charm of its era with all the amenities of today.
