My wife and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary by taking a train trip across Canada that included two-day stops in Victoria, Vancouver, Kamloops (fortunately only 1 night), Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and Halifax. As we set up the trip we decided take the Rocky Mountaineer lux tourist train from Vancouver to Banff, Via Rail’s ‘Canadian’ from Jasper to Toronto and Via Rail’s “Ocean” train from Quebec City to Halifax. We were checked into the Crown Service floor of the Prince George Hotel without any problems and everything went very smoothly. We found the hotel to be right in the heart of the city and very close to many sights of interest. That night we walked the neighborhood and found a nice little restaurant for dinner. Made a walk up the hill the next day to see the Citadel which is only a block away. Breakfast on the Crown Service floor is delivered to the room and was excellent. Lunch the following day was at another nearby restaurant and included some of the best fish and chips we’d eaten. Hotels offer many amenities these days to differentiate themselves from others but you often don’t need but a few. In this case the Prince George provided a computer center where I was able to print out tickets to attend a major entertainment event. Though I purchased the tickets on-line I’d have been dead in the water without a printer connected to an internet capable computer. Thanks Prince George. Five Stars and an A for the Crown Service Floor.
If I were booking this trip again I’d make a point of planning a stop during the first week in July just to attend the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo. It was a remarkable event which included about 1500 performers including bagpipe bands, military bands, step dancers, choirs, etc. And it’s helpful that the Prince George is right across from the Event Center.
