Good For Solo
Good All Around Hotel in the Suburbs
I've never heard of this chain but after reading a number of good reviews, I thought why not. And the price is pretty good also compared to some other hotels in the same vicinity. I paid $109CDN a night (plus a few other fees as mandated by the government). I booked directly on the Future Inns website which came out cheaper than going through CAA (~$120 or so) This hotel is not located in downtown Halifax so for those who are looking to just wake up and go for a stroll downtown, look elsewhere. If you are travelling by car, this place is great. Free parking and it's right off the highway and about 2 minutes from a large business park with lots of big-box stores (Atlantic Superstore, WalMart, Kent, Zellers, etc). Our room was clean and quiet being at the end of a hall and the staff was polite. I'd stay again if I had more vacation days.
Great place, don't overlook this one!
There are two Future Inns in the Halifax / Dartmouth area. I only stayed at the Halifax location, so that's all I can comment on.
The hotel is very new, clean, and well designed. The rooms are big, you get a good selection of channels on the TV, water pressure is acceptable, the iron works, and all the bathroom fixtures are new and functioning. What else could you want?
Unique Quality: Well, if you want a mini-bar, in-room movies, or room service, this isn't the hotel for you. But frankly, none of those things are important to me, so I still recommend it.
There's really nothing particulary special about the Hotel, but it's definitely my new favourite hotel in Halifax.
The restaurant in the lobby of the Hotel is small but very nice. They have a great breakfast that is comparable in price and quantity to Smitty's, across the street. Their bacon is thicker, though ;-)
Directions: Bayers Lake Business Park, right at the exits from the highway.
