Wonderfull staff

We recently stayed here for 3 nights, in a beautiful suite. The staff were all very friendly and did their best to make our stay great. We would come back and stay here again.

A good stay!

Pros: Quiet
The Lord Nelson is a heritage hotel in Halifax. It's a little outside the downtown but a 15-30 min walk will put you in the heart of the city. As in any heritage hotel the rooms are a little smaller then some newer builds but it has great character. I looked a room with a small kitchenette. In speaking with other guests I believe this afforded me a larger more comfortable room. I found the staff to be friendly and the service good. Overall an enjoable stay and I would recommend this hotel.

Thank you for your feedback!

Great and convenient location. Beautiful lobby. Expensive parking. Unfortunately, the room was tiny with the worst view i've ever had, not that i stayed in the room much. The view was of the backside of buildings and a large, dirty rooftop air conditioning condensor. The "view" was so bad i could only laugh. I suppose if i had been warned in advance, it may not have been so shocking. For this reason alone, i would not stay here again.

This is a lovely hotel. It was not clear in booking through Travelocity, however, that we were not getting breakfast and parking included in our price.

I liked the location and the staff. Sitting outside in the evening and having e few drinks was very enjoyable after a day sightseeing.
