    Superb

    It was the closest hotel to Dalhousie University and Citadel. Excellent location, bus stop outside of the hotel, don't need to rent a car. Hotel has excellent limousine service. Can arrange to be picked up from the airport and taken to the airport by limo - cheaper than taxi! Ron, the concierge was awesome - he always seemed to be there when we needed something.

    Hotel was full when we were there - front desk appeared to be under staffed. On the other hand, we arrived the day after the hurricane, and the staff would have been coping with power failures, etc. before we arrived.

    The Hotel is located in the downtown core of Halifax and is a short walk to numerous sites of interest.

    Superb

    The beautiful room - the perks in the suite (aveda bath products)

    Not able to enjoy our hotel room nor the hotel's facilities, including having breakfast bec they couldn't accomodate my vegetarian daughter, because of the power outage. We had to leave shortly after the power came on at 8AM...

    Very clean rooms.

    Front desk staff weren't overly polite or helpful. I was really disappointed with their attitudes compared to other hotels I have stayed in.

    Fabulous

    I enjoyed the excellent service and professional staff. The location of the hotel is also excellent - located in city centre but still quiet. However, the age of the hotel can be clearly seen in every aspect from the bathroom to the elevators. In addition, the rooms in the interior offers not view as they face other hotel rooms. Hence, you cannot really open the window, unless you like to see other guests in their rooms.

    The room was small and old. The interior hotel rooms face other rooms, hence, you cannot really open the window.

    This is a very elegant hotel and was very reasonably priced through Booked.net

    Bathroom was small, but given the age of the hotel it is understandable

    This is an elegant hotel that greets you with the down east warmth and hospitality that hits just the right note. The rooms were were spotless and the beds comfortable. Breakfast in the Victory Arms offered variety and were well prepared. I especially liked the wellness options. The location is great. It is a short walk to the waterfront, shopping and sightseeing attractions.
