Reviewed September 23, 2012

Stayed here while attending a function at the WTCC. The hotel is conveniently located to the convention centre via an undergroud pedway, so pefect for staying dry out of the rain. The room was well appointed and quiet. The wireless was spotty in the room...painfully slow sometimes, while blazing fast at other times. In room wireless is complimentary. Only had one meal in the hotel ( the breakfast buffet) but it was very good. Only issue was trying to get a replacement iron in the room...it took over an hour and several phone calls to replace our faulty iron. Our first stay won't be our last.

The Downtown Link is invaluable during rainy weather in Halifax - and very convenient if you are attending a conference or meeting at the World Trade & Convention Centre.

I do apologize for the "spotty" wireless connection - but thanks so much for reporting this as we really need to know if it is not working efficiently throughout the hotel. Sorry too for the delay in getting an iron to you - certainly not our usual standard.

Thanks again for the feedback and I do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back.

From the moment we got out of our car we felt welcomed and taken care of by the staff. Our room was lovely, clean, well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. We appreciated the two arm chairs, desk and ample drawer space. We plan to come back to Halifax and would not consider staying anywhere else!

We stayed 3 nights in September and can only say that everything was perfect (except the weather) - the room was very clean and spacious with a view of the water and the beds were extremely comfortable

All staff including the cleaners and maintenance staff were very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble - special praise to Andy and Darren who were especially helpful

Will definitely stay again when visiting family close by

I was at the Prince George for a meeting. Halifax isn't a place you go to accidentally. Once you are there, you are really there. That said, its a nice destination. Its a shame it is so far away from the central part of North America. Whether in Canada or the US, its a long way to drive and expensive to fly there.

This hotel was where our meeting was and the room rate was set. I have to say I was very satisfied with the hotel. The bedding was very comfortable. The bed was like a giant pillow that just floated under you. Everything about the guest room I stayed in was first rate.

My only complaint would be the breakfast buffet. The food was very Canadian. That isn't bad, its just a little different and for the most part great, but things like sausage and ham have a different taste to them. Also, the lady who was cooking the omelets was a real space cadet. She would take you order for an omelet and then take 20 minutes to bring it to your table. Not sure what her issues were, but her services were lacking and her customer service skills were not very good.

Overall, this is a great hotel. Its not too far from the harbor, It is a short 4 or 5 blocks downhill to the boardwalk. The bad part is that its a long 4 to 5 block walk up the same hill! After a few days you legs will get a real workout! That isn't bad, its just a fact! There are other hotels closer to the boardwalk and maybe if I go back to Halifax I might try one of those, but this hotel is a great hotel to stay at.

And on the conference room facility, they had a great conference room. Their conference food was really good too so if you are planning on having a conference here, you will have a great experience!

Room Tip: There are harbor side room, but the views are mostly blocked by downtown buildings.

So glad that you had the opportunity to visit Halifax! Thanks so much for the review - this is a great destination and more and more people are discovering the Maritimes as a whole! Delighted that you enjoyed your accommodation and the location of The Prince George. Yes, the uphill climb can be a bit of a work-out if you are not used to it - but we have the Downtown Link which is a covered walkway connecting the downtown office buildings, World Trade & Convention Centre and right down to the waterfront - so this can help you to avoid some of the hills, especially in winter weather!

Your comments on the breakfast buffet are noted - and welcomed. Breakfast is such an important part of the day - and we are striving to make it top notch!

Thanks again for the feedback and I do hope that your travels will enable you to visit again!

The hotel was very comfortable, but what I noticed most was how genuinely friendly all the staff were. For the few challenges that occurred during our stay, the staff were quick to fix any problems. I recommend that you choose a package that provides a meal voucher and/or parking.

Room Tip: Bay side would be nice as opposed to the parking lots across the street.

Thanks for the excellent comments regarding our staff and service! I was delighted to learn that you left with such a positive impression of the hotel. The package you mention is our "Perfect Escape" which includes guestroom, parking and a $25 dining credit which many guests use for breakfast. It's a great value and a popular package throughout the year.

Thanks again and hope to welcome you back to The Prince George.

We stayed at the Prince George for two nights while in Halifax and just loved it. It's an incredible hotel! Beautifully appointed rooms that were very spacious. It's in a great location as well - you can walk to most points of interests. If you have a chance, try the on-site restaurant, Gio. We had the most incredible meals! The menu doesn't have a huge selection, but the choices are original and so well prepared. Don't miss out on the desserts either.

The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interiors are lush and comfortable. The staff were knowledgeable, eager, and smartly kept. I happened to be in Halifax on Pride weekend, and it was very comforting to see the desk-staff wearing rainbow feathers. The location may appear out-of-the-way on a map, but it is actually perfectly central; steps from the Citadel and a short walk from the Public Gardens. The restaurant is lovely. Temperature control in suite was very effective. The Sunday brunch was very nice, although I'm sure that if Gordon Ramsay were to see it, he would suggest that there is too great a selection. Although my room had a small fridge, there was no bar, which surprised me.

Thanks so much for your positive review - and we were delighted to learn that The Prince George turned out to be unexpectedly excellent! We enjoyed your comment regarding Gordon Ramsay critiquing our Sunday Brunch! Many hotels these days are installing new mini fridges as so many guests prefer to use the fridge for their own personal supplies. So we only have fresh milk and cream available in the fridge - and a full menu of drinks and snacks that can be quickly delivered by Room Service (to take the place of the old mini bar selection). We're always happy to ensure that any specific request is available and placed in the fridge before your arrival!

Thanks again for the feedback.
