Prince George Hotel
Ranked #3 of 28 Hotels in Halifax
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 24, 2009

My wife & I decided to visit our son who is studying for a year at Dalhousie University in Halifax. We like good hotels & fortunately are able to afford the best. When selecting a hotel to stay at in Halifax, we were not particularly inspired by any of the ones on offer in particular. It was a toss up between the Prince George & a Marriott, as we are not great fans of Marriotts we plumped for the Prince George. It was surprisingly good, with an excellent room on the top floor, which is a slightly dearer option. The Hotel was spotless, the service excellent & the restaurant was exceptional.

Stayed at the Prince George over Labour Day weekend 2008. Fantastic location right downtown!! We could walk to restaurants. Convenient parking underground.

Rooms were very nice - comfortable beds and very clean.

The only meal we ate at the hotel was breakfast and the food was really good - but the service was exceptionally slow that day.

I would definitely stay at the hotel again.

My husband and I stayed at this strategically-placed hotel for three fabulous nights in freezing February and were very satisfied with it.

We had a Crown Room on the sixth floor at a very reasonable price, which was very large, quiet and immaculate, from the incredibly comfortable bed to the contemporary-looking chairs, table and desk, all in perfect condition. We are not TV people when on holiday, but there was a large flat-screen TV that we could have enjoyed if we had liked to. The bathroom was compact, but did not lack anything and was extremely clean (which is normal, but I am pointing this out as other reviewers seem not to have been as lucky). It had two washbasins carved in dark granite, complete with Aveda products; the bath tub could have been a little more modern as to its material, but functioned perfectly. We appreciated the free internet availability in the room, the turn-down service and the free bottles of water provided every day. There was also a good choice of snacks and drinks and in-room breakfast included, although we preferred going downstairs to The Terrace breakfast room (at an extra charge), purely because we always found it more pleasant, and not because we found any fault in the offer.

The breakfast menu downstairs was very imaginative and varied, food quality was high and the staff helpful, smiling and always making suggestions and offering more of this or of that.

Hotel service in general was excellent and all the staff knew and remembered our surname. We found the concierge informative and very polite and friendly and the reception staff and bell boys very efficient as well.

The hotel décor was very pleasant, especially in the lobby, with rugs and marbles and the feel of a deluxe boutique hotel. We noticed that a lot of people, probably businessmen, checked in, but they did not disturb us at any time. We could also use the downstairs internet room to do our online check-in, which was handy and speedy.
We highly recommend this hotel. For Gio (also recommended!), see separate review.

I had booked a romantic getaway package and requested fruit/cheese plate & choc dipped strawberries to be in the room upon arrival. We were booked on the Crown floor which is apparently the "top of the line" rooms. The front desk service was exceptional so I was really looking forward to seeing our suite.On the way up in the elevator, a staff member asked what floor and we said 6. He commented how nice it was there so we thought this is going to be amazing.
The room was "just average," I have been in much nicer for 2/3 the price. My requests for the room ( cheese plate etc) were not there. The drapery rod was in a u-shape as it was coming out of the ceiling in 3 spots, the bathroom ceiling was peeling paint all over, 2 bulbs were burnt out in the bathroom, the towel rack was coming off the wall on one side, bathroom counter dirty with red stains, very dusty above bathroom lights and dirty around floor moulding with very very chipped floor tiles in bathroom. The furniture in the room was very dated with lots of " touched up" wood filler covering marks etc. The shower is definitely designed for shorter people as I am 5'9 and had to bend my knees to get under the showerhead. In addition, had to call for my cheese plate etc after an hour as I had heard nothing from room service and when it was delivered, no plates, cutlery or napkins. I had to call the conceirge desk again to request they be delivered as well. If this is #1 for Halifax, what a disappointment for tourists......stay somewhere else.Cambridge Suites is a nicer hotel and a better price.

I don't have anything specific to complain about. Service was friendly and reasonably efficient. Hotel was clean and centrally-located. But, for the price and considering all the fawning reviews on this site, I found the room was just average, a little on the small side. Perhaps if we'd shelled out even more money for "club floor" we would have felt differently, but it was expensive enough. I think, in retrospect, we would have been better off at one of the city's less pretentious hotels, like Cambridge Suites.

Every bit worth the price. Perfect service, perfect room, perfect restaurant (Gio). Dont see how any other hotel in Halifax could beat this one in any way.

Great Hotel, excellent location in the centre of downtown - within walking distance to the Shore/Historic Properties and the citadel.

Rooms were cozy and clean. Not very noisy. Had a great view looking towards the water, over downtown.

I'd definately stay there again.
