Halifax, harbor vacinity

Pros: Great proximty to most of Halifax tourist attractions, many within easy walking distance.
Cons: Stayed three days, first nights room had a very small , cramped bathroom. Moved to another room for the remaining nights, much better larger bathroom
Location: The Halifax Maratime Muesum, the Imigration Muesum, the Citadel fortress. A day trip to Luenberg is a must see.
Older hotel, located within blocks of the harbor and numerous dining options. Seems to attract a good number of business meetings, but is more than fine for the vacationer.
