Refurbished old Hotel across from Halifax's Public Gardens, comfortable and well appointed, with casual and friendly Maritime staff, central to the city's shopping and sightseeing. No complaints.
Location is perfect, across from the lovely Public Gardens and within walking distance of downtown, university and harbor areas. Staff was courteous and helpful. Breakfast buffet was extensive. Hotel was very clean and beds were comfortable.
Very comfortable, lovely atmosphere Cost of parking
Hotel was in perfect, extremely close,location to main shopping district, which was the main reason for our visit to Halifax. We stayed in classic queen room, bathroom was very small.
Quiet except for doors banging shut. Cost of parking high.
Great value and service. Close to great places in Halifax.
the hotel staff, without exception, were friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. What a delight !
The convieniance to shopping and close to downtown Halifax. The room was not what I expected. I may not have seen the right picture on your site when I booked.
Everything I can not pinpoint anything that I can honestly say I disliked except I thought parking should be included in price.
The location and most staff were great. Food was good. Rooms were not kept cleaned and aired, dust on floors was a bit tooo much. Training (front desk) and attire (restaurant) of staff NEEDS to be revisited urgently. For a hotel of The Lord's Nelson's supposed standing change should be readily available to its guests...I was told there was no change for a 100 USD! USD should be a currency you readily accept. If there is doubt about authenticity maybe a counterfeit machine should be employed at front desk. Train the staff. Have reliable tour companies on call for guests.
Very clean room , w-lan , good location, friendly staff noisy rooms
Good location for where I needed to be.
I did not like that there was no complimentary coffee for us the next morning. We stayed the night that the power was out due to Hurricane Earl. So because we couldn't make coffee in our room i feel that complimentary coffee in starbucks should have been complimentary
just to munch money
Good size rooms, clean and up to date, ipod base for music Location not optimal for tourism (more than 1 km away and uphill from Waterfront Properties, downtown area)
Parking was very tight, and many slots were blind to traffic inside the car park.
offering starbucks coffee, no wireless internet, bathtub paint is peeling off, no bathroom in lobby, away from downtown
location for the business I had to conduct in Halifax Improve the quantity of food offerings
The staff were very friendly & helpful, a beautiful place, a fitness room, pool, etc.. I would stay there again.
Key cards hardly worked, slow staff response and bad bathroom supplies
Easy going but responsive and efficient approach of the staff Overpriced thanksgiving dinner 'special' that tasted dreadful.
The front desk crew was very helpful to locate all the sights. The parking garage was easily to enter and to park in. The hotels location is in the city but when on foot far away from the sights, the shopping and the majority of the restaurants. This was not indicated at all.
Staff were pleasant and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The restaurent is exceptionally nice with a good view. Food is a bit pricey. no complaints.
We found that check in and check out were very quick and efficient. The room service was excellent.
Location in city, rooftop balcony,quietness,breakfast,underground parking and helpful staff. Not really
Location was fabulous with restaurants very near and close to the waterfront - a lot of Halifax is reachable by a short walk.
Excellent hotel loved the renos since our last stay.
The harbour view for only $10 upgrade Breakfast room got very congested at certain times, especially around the very slow moving toaster.
I was taking my daughter to Dalhousie university, a 4km round trip from this hotel. Lovely rooftop terrace overlooking the harbour, walking distance to shops and restaurants....and the campus. A reasonable drive to shopping and sights outside of the city centre. The room was very spacious with a handy mini kitchen area. A good sized decent fitness facility with hot tub. I will be back, perhaps with family. Two levels of parking underneath. The girls at the front desk were very helpful with directions anywhere I asked to go. I was thankful for the use of the business centre and printer for the printing of my boarding pass before I left. No.
The room was a comfortable size and the bed was great. House keeping was loud while cleaning the rooms. The floors were not vaccumed once in our week long stay at the hotel.
I loved the room, the location, the gym, the breakfast and the staff! There is not a single thing not to love about this hotel!
Nice hotel, staff and breakfast. Location is 8 blocks uphill/ downhill from waterfront. Walking the 8 blocks uphill back to the hotel was a physical workout. I would have preferred a hotel about 4 blocks or less from water
Very Convenient and great amentities, within,room very comfortable.
The staff were professional and couteous, the room was clean and spacious, breadkfast is provided, and the location is central to the downtown area. Nothing.
Location, spacious suite
comfortable bed and great maid service Underground waking to Scotia Square! Called ahead to make sure their parking would accommodate a full size truck. Was told yes. Getting in was not a problem but getting out was nerve wracking!! One truck had its side scaped trying to maneuver the tight corner while another had its truck cap scraped while we were there!!!
Good location. Good lounge. Excellent restaurant. Nice staff. Pillows are way too hard. They used to have down. They no longer know the difference between down and feather pillows.
The facilities and were excellent. The location is ideal for the city of Halifax.TH The P.G. was expensive as all hotels are in the Halifax area.
i have been staying at the prince since 1987 the location i likeb best no
It is simple but nice The ends are too soft for me
The dinner we had Friday night was absolutely marvellous! Both dishes were elegantly presented and cooked to perfection.
The staff and the location were great.The bed was very comfortable. I thought the price for parking was excessive and the room rate was very high.Parking should have been included in the room rate at the price I paid.
Location, cleanliness, modern, great parking, long time client. In the past I ahve been a client of this hotel many times for business purposes and had great service. Not this time. I was denied my provicial government discount and was very displeased. It was not until it went to the manager in he morning that the decision was reversed. The reason I was told that I was denied was because I booked on line. As I feel thisis an advertising tool, I feel that this was not a reason and that I am the same client I was am. In the morning however, I was told that I was denied as the hotel was booked to capacity. I have never heard of this before. The manager finally reversed the decision after lengthy diecussion but still charged me $10 extra over what the clerk told me was the government rate the night before. Very poor service and not an enjoyable stay. Unfortunate as I actually love to stay here.
When booked, we had hoped for a hotel within walking distance of all our past memories - from the Citadel to the waterfront - and The Prince George fit the bill perfectly. We went to the Tattoo on Friday evening - and when booking, had no idea where the building centre holding the event was. Imagine how pleased we were to learn it was across the street! Missed a hotel bar....
Hotel was awesome and very impressed, however the elevators are extremely slow. It took upwards of 10-15 mins at times for us to get up and down to and from the 15th floor.
Beautiful new rooms, spacious, great location. waited for 30 minutes to check in (huge lineup with lots of agitated guests) only one elevator, so waited 10+ minutes to get on the elevator EVERY time we had to use it (ended up giving up and taking the stairs a few times) For $180/night we could have stayed at one of Halifax's other beautiful hotels with less headaches.
good breakfast and great location. Easy access to all site seeing amenities & waterfront attractions. Professional, curteous and efficient service at front desk. Even the cleaning staff was friendly and helpful. liked the added security of needing the room card for the parking and the use of the elevator. Lack of fan in the bathroom. Pool temperature was a bit too cool to enjoy.
The hotel was in walking distance to all if halifax harbor front. We wished there was a small fridge in the room.
The location is excellent.
Reception and staff was friendly No wireless in the room. Conversations from other room could be heard. The air in the 10th floor could be freshened-too much smoking smell even in the corridors.
The staff was friendly enough. The people serving in the restaurant were very nice and friendly, eating there was a nice occasion The hotel is starting to look worn... Our room could have been better it needs some renovations... it was still acceptible
The house staff were very friendly and accommodating. I am aware that the power failure was not due to the hotel itself, but a result of Hurricane Bill.. However, the fact that we had very little water, were unable to flush the toilets and could not use the phone to request an escort down the very dark stairwell for the entirety of the Saturday was very inconvenient. In particular, the toilet issue was very frustrating with no alternatives offered to guests.
We had a comfortable and clean room. Good food in the restaurant and friendly staff It cost $14.00 for overnight parking
The generously sized room was much appreciated. I enjoyed the easy way staff switched between English and French. I also liked the willingness to offer non-menu items for breakfast. The rooming staff were flexible and we didn't feel pushed out of our room for their convenience, which is something which happens in some hotels. The room heating unit was noisy and had to be switched off to allow sleep. Normally it might not have mattered but I was jet lagged, feeling cold and needed some daytime shut-eye.
Close to the Metro Centre We booked a smoking room and didn't get it. The A/C was broken and no window to open for fresh air, we were given a small fan and the pillows were flat and lumpy.
It was very close to shopping centres and easy access to the pier, where we spent 80% of our time.
Promixity to downtown. It was old. Furniture and fixtures very dated. Very small bathrooms. Undergoing major renovations.
Our room had very bad smell to it?
