Our stay at The King George was everything we expected. The hotel staff was wonderful. The location of the hotel allowed us to sightsee, and pick a wonderful restaurant nearby. The only negative was we were told we had a river view room. Not so.

When planning my trip to Halifax I found it very hard to decide which hotel to stay in. I found for the most part there was a discrepancy in the reviews and the the non-professional pictures of the hotel. For instance, the review would categorize the Prince George hotel as luxury but then I would look at the pictures and it would look like a 3 star hotel. So here is my review. The Prince George hotel is in a great location where you can walk to any place in downtown Halifax . The staff is extremely friendly and for that fact so is everyone in Halifax . When I stayed at the hotel they were renovating the lobby, it looked lovely. It was a contemporary modern feel . In the lobby there is a restaurant where you can have breakfast. They either serve buffet or a la carte. Gio's is an upscale restaurant attached to the hotel. Now for the rooms. I got the the deluxe king suite. It had updated bathrooms, a bedroom with a king bed that was separated by French doors that led to a separate seating area. The seating area had the second bathroom , tv couch and desk. What I have to say is thank goodness for this small den because it is what separated us from the room next door. The walls were paper thin and I could hear every word the couple next door were saying and they were not talking loud. I closed the French doors to the bedroom and was not able to hear them but without that buffer it would have been a disaster. In addition, the rooms are not renovated but they are extremely clean. Overall I would stay at the Prince George hotel again but I would ask for a quiet room.

Thank you had_a_gr8time - hopefully that "next time" happens very soon. We haven't renovated our bedrooms yet but new pieces are arriving everyday and a complete refresh is only weeks away.

Have been selecting the Prince George for the past 15 years of business travel. The staff has always been terrific, and the location excellent for easy access to all that downtown has to offer. Recent room and lobby area renovations are sure to improve upon an already excellent hotel.

Certainly not the type of review we are looking for.... we are in the business of making sure people leave here feeling valued, important and obviously having a great sleep in a safe environment. I wish we left you with a more favorable memory of your time with us.

If you have a double bed at home and think you will get the same size when you request a double at this hotel, you won't. It is about the size of a super single. Good for one adult and a small child....
