“Nice Hotel and Great Location!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

I stayed at this hotel back in late September and this hotel was very nice, clean with a modern look. Check-in was quick & easy; the staff was very helpful when asking about shopping, attractions etc. The location was excellent where I would only need to walk a few blocks to get to the boardwalk and view from my hotel room looked onto signal hill, which was a nice sight to wake up to. I often stay at Cambridge Suites in Toronto on business, therefore I assumed it would be the same “Suite-like” feel; however the room was quite a bit smaller and also didn't have a separate living area as do the rooms in Toronto, non-the-less I was still pleased with the accommodations. The rooms were a little noisy; I could hear conversations of the people staying in the room next to me; again this is not a reflection on the hotel, simply the guests next door. There is a gym and Jacuzzi on one of the higher levels and has everything one would need for a quick workout.

Overall the hotel is nice and the location is great. I would recommend staying here and if I am ever out that way again, I would stay here.

Thx!

We stayed here for four nights while on a summer trip to the East Coast and loved it. Our room had a view across the city out to the Halifax Harbour. It was spacious and well-appointed, lots of room in the bathroom, and the mini kitchen area was perfect for a couple.

As a large group had checked out the day of our arrival, our room was not quite ready but the staff were lovely and we were offered a beverage and newspaper while we waited. There was a wine and appetizer reception one evening while we were there and the selection at breakfast was excellent.

A few people we spoke to asked why we didn't want something closer to the water but we loved the fact that we were in a real neighbourhood and so close to the Citadel. We would stay here again.

We stay here every year for a downtown Christmas Party. We are always greeted warmly and given prompt service. The room is always clean service is prompt.
Security is important here, we came into the room when it was still being made up and we were asked to show our room keys to make sure it belonged to us. I like that.
We had noisy neighbors at aprox. 11:30 one night and we called security. We heard them ask the room to be quiet and they actually came back two other times when the room had started to be noisy again....and we didn't have to call! Wonderful!

This is simply a good hotel in a nice location with friendly staff. It is nothing spectacular but no glaring shortcomings either. The complimentary breakfast is very good and the rooftop patio is outstanding, I sat up there watching the sunset with beautiful ocean views!

Stayed there for one night on a business trip from Toronto, first time guest. Allowed early check-in and a covered garage for parking-$16. Room recently updated it appeared with very comfortable bed and pillows! I will stay here again on my next trip.

Second visit to Halifax, but first stay in the Cambridge. Will definitely stay there again on future visits. The staff is young, but quite friendly and professional, and really go over the top to make sure your visit is a pleasure. I needed a couple of boxes to mail a few things home, and one of the desk attendants insisted on restocking the hotel ministore so I could have 2 empty boxes. There is a handy coin laundry facility in the hotel that helps if you've been on the road and run out of essentials; you can even watch TV as you wash and dry. The views from the higher floors are good of the harbor and the few blocks between the hotel and the harbor. The free breakfast was my only complaint. Continental with few items, tiny glasses, huge spoons, nothing hot but tasteless oatmeal. You can order off a limited menu, but it is pricey. Go out for breakfast. One more plus, parking, while $16 per day, is underground, heated and very secure. The hotel is only one block from Spring Garden, the shopping Mecca of downtown, also only a few blocks from the waterfront, and great restaurants and pubs abound within waliking distance. A good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room on the harbor side.

We recently stayed for the weekend at Cambridge Suites and had a great time. There were 4 adults sharing a room so booked the 1 bedroom suite which had 2 double beds and a pullout couch in the living area. They also had a small kitchenette at the side of the living room with a microwave, utensils and a mini fridge. At first glace from the outside the hotel looks a bit outdated but the inside is all newly renovated and looks great! Parking over the weekends in Halifax are free to park on the streets however actually trying to find a spot is quite challenging therefore paying for the parking ($16 plus tax/day) was very handy as it was underground and protected. The hotel is only 6 floors high and has a fitness centre, hot tub and BBQ area on the roof which is very nice. The best feature is the continental breakfast that is offered in the Canvas Resto Lounge. It is a big space with tons of space for all to sit, or you can take back food to your room. Some of the items included in the breakfast were, coffee, tea, toast, english muffins, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, muffins, fruit salad and fruit. They always had a great amount of food so if you showed up a little late it was okay because they still had a lot of fresh items. All in all the hotel is in a great location right by the Citadel Hill and 2 Streets away from the bars/restaurants and Neptune Theatre. You will definitely not be disappointed with staying at this hotel!

If you are looking for great places to check out while in Halifax, I would highly recommend Pier 21, day trip to Peggys Cove and Lunenburg. Don't forget to get dinner at Salty's, It's DELICIOUS!
