    Very nice accomodation overlooking the harbor


    I stayed at the Cambridge Suites twice during this trip, for a couple of days at each end of a trip to Nova Scotia.

    Reservation was made by toll free telephone. Staff was very thorough and got me a good rate since i would be staying at the hotel twice. Check in was a snap, everything was ready just as expected.

    The Room itself was nice, with a harbor view, very roomy and well cleaned. The room was really more like an apartment. The large bed that was comfortable, closed off by a separator. Bathroom was likewise roomy, bright and very good. Good closet space. A living room/sitting area. Semi kitchen with refrigerator and coffee maker/toaster.

    The hotel has a nice small restaurant next to it. Breakfast is served here, which was available quite early. Selection was probably average, tending towards the simple. No complaints though. I did have a small meal the afternoon of my arrival and was very satisfied. The seafood chowder is especially worthy of recommendation.
    Laundry facilities downstairs on the garage level.

    Staff was very good, all reservations were arranged perfectly and everything was exactly as expected. Staff was very friendly and helpful with suggesting restaurants and things to do and see in Halifax.

    Unique Quality: I liked the Suite concept, having your own kitchen and basically a small apartment. Nearby groceries made this a big advantage.

    View over the harbor was nice, especially at night when the harbor is all lit up. You do pay extra for the harbor view. Frankly, though it was nice to have, I'm not sure that the harbor view was worth the extra money.

    There was a swimming pool, exercise machines (some free weights) and whirlpool upstairs. All worked just fine

    At the time of my stay there was a nice flat screen TV in the room, wifi functioned without any problem, signal strength was strong.

    Directions: at the foot of Citadel Hill. Good location a short walk to Spring Garden

    Cambridge Suite, almost like home


    I've stayed twice at the Cambridge Suite hotels both times for a week and in both cases I really enjoyed the accomodations. The Suite concept, with its fridge, microwave and kitchen area (complete with cutlery and dishes) allowed me to make my own meals. There is a convenience store not too far and a great deli just a street away with wonderful take out already made italian dishes that are perfect for reheating in the microwave.

    Positive improvements


    I revisited this hotel in 2012 and stayed there for a week.
    I was pleased by all the improvements that were in place since my last visit in 2003.

    The access by car is easy via an automatic door to a clean basement garage with excellent lights.

    The front desk personnel was very friendly and helpful.

    The room was completely renovated with stylish decoration and furniture, flatscreen and the highest speed Wi-Fi Internet and had during this trip.

    The shampoo and soaps are of a special top eco-brand.

    The breakfast room has been extended; the complementary breakfast is still sober but sufficient. There always is the option of ordering extra's from the menu.

    One of the popular events is the "Wednesday = Manager's night", with a free drinks and BBQ in the summertime. I enjoyed drinks and snacks at the lobby area in a cosy atmosphere.

    The location is close to the Citadel Hill and a row of restaurants nearby at Spring Garden Road and its side streets.

    The rooms are equiped with a kitchenette including microwave oven and refrigerator.

    2 National Free newspapers are available at the lobby.

    Directions: Right next to the Citadel Hill at the East side.
    Just follow 102 and turn right into Market street to enter the Parking garage.

A Suite Deal

The Cambridge Suites, on the corner of Brunswick and Sackville Streets, sits in the shadow of the Citadel and many of its rooms offer views over the rooftops of Halifax to the harbour. Although we have stayed at many of Halifax’s hotels over the years, the Cambridge Suites is often our hotel of choice. To cut to the chase, you can see the different room configurations, rates and a slide-show at the Cambridge site, ------.

On this trip, traveling with our daughter, we chose the one-bedroom suite. It features a bedroom with a king-sized and very comfortable bed, a small, but full, bath, and a kitchenette with microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and bar-fridge and a selection of dishes and utensils. The living area has a couch/bed, a comfortable chair and a table with two chairs, one of which is an office-type swivel chair. There is a second work area as well with internet access. The living room and the bedroom share the television, and there is a slider between them, so real privacy is somewhat limited… but it was sufficient. The studios offer the bed and the couch, but with no privacy… so they’re suitable for a couple of people or people traveling with a child.

The hotel’s amenities include two levels of parking garage, and on the sixth floor there is a reasonably well-equipped exercise room with a hot-tub and a sauna. Off the exercise room is a large outdoor patio with great views over Halifax. On Wednesdays, guests are invited to a manager’s party in that area, with snacks and cocktails. There is also a modern restaurant/lounge, Dofsky’s, just off the lobby. In the morning, there is a complementary breakfast offered in the restaurant; offerings include fruit, cereals, muffins, croissants, bagels and toast. In other words… the hotel has everything that the business or leisure traveler needs including bell-service, a grocery shopping service and excellent and helpful staff.

What else is there? Location! It is close to everything… it is an easy walk down the hill to the harbour and the historic properties and the citadel is just up the street. Halifax’s main thoroughfare, Barrington Street, is just three blocks down and there are quite a number of good pubs, wine bars and restaurants close by including Maxwell’s Plum, The Keg, The Shoe Shoppe, Opa!, Ryan Duffy’s, Il Mercato and Seven. There is also a surfeit of pizza at “pizza corner” just a block from the hotel and Halifax’s main shopping area, Spring Garden Road, is three minutes on foot. If you’re looking for a hotel that is in the “center”… The Cambridge Suites is a good choice.

Great stay

by TripAdvisor Member MLRobert

We booked a four night "Getaway" deal at the Cambridge Suites and were amazed at what was included: an upgrade to a Gold Suite with microwave and fridge, free high-speed internet, parking, breakfast delivered to the room and turndown service every night, including bottled water, chocolates and a bottle of wine. There were some unexpected little treats like free microwave popcorn and cookies for snacking, and the mini-bar actually had reasonable prices. The room was spacious, clean and well-designed. Front-desk service was extremely helpful and made some good restaurant recommendations. The hotel is within walking distance of everything downtown including the Citadel, Maritime Museum and Waterfront. A good value for the money.

Pretty Solid

by TripAdvisor Member sfguysf

A very good location and nice people. Although our suite was starting to wear a little, it was comfortable. I called the hotel directly and got a price comparable to elsewhere on the web, but they gave more amenities (like free net access and a bottle of wine). Worth calling directly to see what they can do.

Wouldn't Recommend

by TripAdvisor Member shivering_in_toronto

We called while driving to Halifax a day earlier than expected and were (we thought) lucky to get a room at such a reasonable rate. Unfortunately, they only had smoking rooms left. I thought that it couldn't be THAT bad, perhaps a little stale smoky smelling, but we can deal with that. Well, it seemed like there was absolutely no outside ventilation. The room absolutely REEKED. My nostrils were burning all night long with the smoke and even with the window wide open and the fan on full, I couldn't sleep. I kept waking up certain there was someone sitting beside the bed, blowing smoke into my face. AND I'M A SMOKER. Perhaps the nonsmoking rooms are okay, but believe me when I say that the discomfort level was very high, and I would not be able to stay in this hotel again.

On the plus side, the room was large, parking was included with our rate, and the continental breakfast (also included in the rate) delivered to our room in the morning was very nice.

Great stay for a 3-star hotel.

We stayed in Gold Suite #514 from Sept. 9-14. I phoned the hotel directly to reserve the suite, and the package deal (free parking, free continental breakfast, newspaper, hi-speed internet, bathrobes, bottle of wine every night) ended-up being cheaper than the rates listed on the major travel websites. Underground parking entrance is on Market St. near Blowers St. The garage door opens up automatically, then you drive-up to the entry gate where there's an intercom to the front desk. Buzz them and they'll raise the gate for you. Check-in was normal. The harbour view room (not that great of a harbour to look at!) was satisfactory. A bit worn, but clean. The suite has adjustable air conditioning/heat. There is a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster, plates, bowls, cups cutlery, salt, pepper, can opener, cork screw. Gold Suites also include complimentary coffee, sugar, cream, tea, cookies, microwave popcorn. The bed and pillows are nice and comfy. The bathroom was bright, with the usual small hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. The paint was peeling in a few places, but there was a heated mirror that didn't fog-up (kinda kewl). The suite was quiet, but you can hear other people close their room doors (loud locks?). The complimentary breakfast was mostly bread products (somedays warm, somedays cold), cereal, tea, coffee, juice. If you want eggs, bacon, etc. you can order it from Dofsky's restaurant on the main floor. Housekeeping was pretty good. The room was nice and clean. They only missed the lack of a pricelist for the in-room treats (not that I ever eat them because they're too expensive), and the notepad that ran out. Be warned, there's lots of construction and roadwork in the downtown hotel area (they're building another hotel right in front of the Four Points Sheraton), so check before you book. None of that around the Cambridge. All-around a nice stay. A solid 3 star hotel, and it's staff really does try to make your stay as pleasant as possible!
