3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The rooms were not worth the price, but very clean and comfortable. Don't expect anything complimentary. The exercise facilities were nice. No pool. Restaurant was pricey, but you do get a very large portion of seafood chowder (however, it was quite bland in taste). Restaurant service was very slow. Don't be in a rush.The lobby is beautiful with crystal chandeliers... More

A classy, though perhaps a bit drafty, hotel. I can't speak for all rooms, but my room was a huge two-room suite. Nothing beats a damp september evening than flicking on the fireplace and relaxing into your own couch. I had to call for help twice (to help turn on the fireplace and to figure out how to set the...

First timers to Halifax and found the location excellent. Easy walking down to the waterfront and plenty of restaurants all around. Rooms were spacious with usual amenities. Bed was comfortable and view from the window overlooking the park excellent. Staff were excellent and handled a power cut where we had to use stairs only with professionalism and mindful of security... More

I have stayed at the Lord Nellie a few times now and a business partner uses it all the time. It is a great hotel with a central location with easy walking distance to anything in downtown. Highly recommended.

A little old fashioned, but that was part of the charm, a bit, the walk to the harbor is only 10-15 min , but be prepared to walk up hill on the way back. We enjoyed the stay and walked to mot of the attractions we were interested in. We could have driven but parking on a holiday weekend was... More

This was my second visit to The Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites in the last year and I will be returning! Every staff member we encountered was top notch, from the concierge, the doormen, bellhop, front desk, maid service and even maintenance! Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. the hotel is approximately 15 minutes walk from Dalhousie university and 15... More

We stayed at the Lord Nelson at the beginning of September. It is ideally located for anyone dropping a child off at the university. It has lots of character, especially in the lounge. The rooms are quite nicely decorated but the air conditioners need to be updated. They have no "fan only" setting, so if you are just trying to... More

A bit past it's prime, the Lord Nelson can still impress enough to make one feel like it's a special occasion while a guest. The door staff are in full display, so I was surprised that when I got out of the cab there was no one offering any assistance so, I carried my large suitcase up a few stairs... More

Wanted a hotel that was walkable to waterfront. I think the Lord Nelson Hotel filled the bill AND more. The neighborhood has all the shopping on Spring Garden, with Starbucks and Lululemon. I found the neighborhood Muksha Yoga and walked to class. Hotel has a lovely front porch to sit on and just drink your morning coffee, which everyone walked... More

The Lord Nelson is a Halifax signature spot. On the pricier side of places to stay, it is worth it if you desire attentive staff, well appointed, clean, spacious rooms in a central Halifax location. Many attractions are close by such as the Citadel. Many fabulous gastronomic destinations are all within easy walking distance of this hotel. A mere 15... More
