I would recommend this hotel for its convenience and overall value. It was within walking distance to some of Halifax's best attractions, including the Public Gardens which is across the street. Spring Garden Road, a bustling tourist area, is just around the corner. across the street. Spring Garden Road, a busy tourist area, is just around the corner.

The hotel is lovely. The restaurant food was delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. No carpets in the rooms, appreciated that. Location was close enough to major attractions to walk to everything. About a 15 mins walk to the harbourfront. Across from the Public Gardens and around the corner from... More

We have watched the progress of the hotel since 1998, when we had an extended stay while it was being renovated. We always like to stay there when we visit Halifax; it seems like an old friend. Only one negative: personally we don't like pillow-top mattresses and would prefer a firmer bed. It's very welcoming and convenient.

Stayed for three nights and would stay again. The staff were wonderful -- pleasant and professional. I was seated on the veranda enjoying the afternoon sun when one of the concierge staff arrived (without my asking) with a bottle of water and a ice filled glass for me. The hotel room which was small (one queen size bed) was immaculate... More

It is right across the street from the beautiful Public Gardens, There are restaurants located only a short walk away. The restaurant in the hotel is very good and even stayed open when our group came in late... More

Would highly recommend this place! Service was something else. They couldn't do enough for you and were right there if you called. Rarely come across such hospitality these days. Room was impeccable and the food was great.

Our final hotel for our transverse of Canada was at the Lord Nelson Hotel which obviously got some great traditions. I couldn't believe that you could post a letter on you hotel floor by the lift and it is directly sent to the ground level to be collected, it's a pity that Canadian mail are on strike or go slow...

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Lord Nelson. Well situated next to the Public Gardens and Spring Garden Street, the Lord Nelson has an elegant feel to it, and the suites were plenty spacious.
