As a retired travel journalist, I can highly recommend this hotel for service, rooms and location. Check in staff very efficient and location meant we could walk to most attractions (including hockey game).

This hotel is so great. It is located in such a central location that you can walk to all the local sites. It is right across the street from the beautiful public park which is a wonderful place to stroll and relax. Its an easy walk down to the waterfront and spend the day. The staff were very helpful and... More

My girlfriend and I got the CAA package that included an executive room, full hot breakfast buffet, free parking and a bottle of wine. We stayed 3 nights with a room that overlooked the public gardens. Everyone was super friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the bellmen to the wait staff. The room was clean and well maintained.... More

A three night stay at this hotel in the centre of Halifax. I was in a small room (referred to as "petite" by the receptionist) on the 6th floor, with a very comfortable queen bed. The room had a small ensuite bathroom, with smaller than average bath towels (which is surprising for such a grand hotel). The maximum temperature of... More

I like to refer to these rooms as our "value rooms". We offer these rooms usually to single travelers or someone not planning to spend a lot of time in the room. You can also upgrade your room upon arrival for a very nominal fee that would provide you extra space and comfort. If helpful we also offer special packages... More

We were very pleased with our recent two night stay at The Lord Nelson. The staff was professional, helpful and friendly. The lobby and entrance was beautiful and well maintained. The room was modern, good sized, and had a mini-fridge which we always enjoy in case we want to keep a six pack of…soda chilled. The climate control was excellent... More

The location is good, close to public garden and short walk to he ocean front boardwalk. The room itself is small but the washroom is tiny ! So tiny that my fiance and I can't both be in it the same time. Makes it very inconvenience in the morning! The HVAC unit in the room is either blasting or off,... More

I traveled with my husband and parents-in-law who visited from the UK to show them around Nova Scotia.

Lovely setting. Within walking distance to downtown and the University. Staff is upber friendly and helpfup. Breakfast buffet was extensive and omelettes were yummy. Room was so comfortable and a wonderful place to rest after walking all day. Really, what more could you ask for?
