good and bad

The room was clean and the staff were very helpful. However the walls of the room are too thin and you can hear everything going on in the next room. The hotel location is great right in the middle of everything but the hotel gouges on parking( $22 + tx, a day ) and tried to slip in extra charges for the globe and mail that was not requested. The hotel is also not completely handicapped accessable. My husband walks with a cane and the elevator (the one that is not a service elevator) that goes to the parking requires you to climb some steps to get to your car.

Wonderful experience

My stay in Lord Nelson was amazing experience. It is perfectly located in the heart of the city. I didn't need to use public transportation most of the time. within walking distance you can find almost all what you need of shopping, resturants, and all other type of entertainment. The staff are welcomning and friendly.

Four-day trip to visit family

The hotel is at an excellent location, just one/two blocks from a number of 24-hour establishments (which is a really big deal in Halifax). Basically on their equivalent of Fifth Avenue in NY in terms of shopping, banks and restaurants.

Great Hotel - Wifi in Lobby, Not the room

We enjoyed the hotel, but had a problem with the first room. Once we spoke to the Front Desk, they quickly moved us to another room. Good job! However, we were not able to get the wifi to work in our room. It did work in the lobby, but...

Great place to stay in Halifax

The Lord Nelson is a great place to stay in Halifax because it is within walking distance of everything downtown and by the waterfront. The building is uplifted and well appointed with old world charm. The Victory Arms restaurant/bar was a comfortable place to gather with good, affordable food. Overall a great value for what feels like a more expensive stay.

Great Location Great Hotel

The hotel is absolutely beautiful. It reminds me of a Ritz in the US. Its on the corner of the biggest shopping district in Halifax and across the street from the Public gardens that was created by the same man who created Central Park in NYC. It is just a short walk away from many historic sites such as the Citadel as well as the beautiful harbor. Check in and check out was easy and the room was immaculate. I highly suggest this hotel.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Argyle street, which is where most of the restaurants are located is about 3/4 of a mile. It is a downhill walk there but the uphill walk back is a little much. If you have small children jump in a cab (it will be less than $5).
