Hotel was excellent and extremely accommodating to our needs. Front desk staff very helpful with checkin and working out different arrival and departure dates. Rooms were excellent and breakfast provided each day were satisfying although weekend did not include a full hot breakfast option.. Restaurants, shopping nearby, on a bus line if someone did not have a vehicle. Would definitely... More

Spent the night here before catching a flight early in the morning. Wasn't too bad of a stay but not spectacular or anything. Although we had an early flight and breakfast was not exactly suppose to start yet the front desk staff began to put things together so we were able to eat something; very nice of them. I happened...

Just because the name changed doesn't mean anything changed. Tara & staff are still the friendly, accommodating and polite people they always have been for years here. New owners should be happy with the gems they inherited with buying this place. Can't wait to visit Halifax and stay there again! Thx for a great stay!!!

Loved the hotel. One of the Top stays on our east coast trip. It was clean, modern, and spacious. If ever back again will automatically choose this hotel again. We would have stayed in one of their other locations but discovered them too late in our trip.
