Stayed last year in a 3 bedroom suite (adjoining set of rooms) for a group of 8 women for a getaway night. We rebooked this suite of rooms for this year for November 15, 2014. We called to confirm our reservation on Wednesday November 12th. On Friday November 14th, the day before we were to arrive, hotel reservation staff cancelled... More

I loved everything about this hotel. The location was great, the staff were great, the room was clean and the gym was great. I found the noise in the hallway early in the morning a little annoying. However, this happens often in many hotels. I really wish these big hotels would invest in soundproof rooms....so we could have a nice... More

This hotel is in a great location. It's breakfast has improved tremendously since the last time I stayed here. Unfortunately this will be the last time I say there. I had to move to another room due to the HVAC system, no problem this happens, I actually requested by mistake this room, and they processed it very quickly and professionally... More

We stayed at the Lord Nelson for five nights on our recent trip to Halifax, a little more than two years after our last visit. The hotel didn't disappoint. Great service, very comfortable room (Executive King) and a really good restaurant. The location is perfect for sightseeing in Halifax, within walking distance to most things we wanted to do. Definitely... More

I was booked into this hotel for business, so I didn't know what to expect. However, when I arrived, I was more than impressed. You are immediately struck by a sense of history when you enter the lobby. The check in was very smooth, and my room on the 6th floor was great for the business traveller. The wi-fi was... More

After a year, we decided to head back to The Lord Nelson Hotel and I have to say, we were extremely happy with our stay. Though the hotel still has much of its old world charm with some updating needed as last year, the food, staff, and general atmosphere were incredible this time around. We felt great knowing about all... More
