Prince George Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 6, 2004

We received a discount rate for staying at the Prince George because my cousin had booked a block of rooms there for guests of his wedding (the reception was also held there.) I understand the rates are usually much higher. It was nice but if it was regular price it would be way too rich for my blood! Complimentary "National Post" newspapers and things like that...
Staff was very professional, friendly, and helpful. Many of them looked young and a little gawky, like they were kids wearing their fathers' suits.
The hotel decor was rich too. I always expected to see a herd of snobby CEO types coming down the hall, but there weren't any to be seen.
Clean, normal hotel room with bar fridge, nothing extraordinary in the rooms.
A great central location, right below the Citadel and within easy walking distance of everything major in the downtown/waterfront areas.

Unique Quality: The pool, sauna, and hot tub were fantastic, very clean and well kept. Especially nice after a day of walking in the rain up and down the hills of Halifax harbour.
There is also a pretty garden terrace on the main floor, which serves as outdoor party reception area, smoking area, or place just to sit. It's charming even though the view isn't very good.

Service was awesome- You pay alittle bit more for top room service, but breakfast was brought to your room each morning. Any time you had a problem or question it was taken care of. It is right downtown so you can walk to all of downtown Halifax

Directions: right downtown- 4 blocks from the bay

Downtown Halifax

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 20, 2003

The Prince George is conveniently located in downtown Halifax, about half-way up the hill from the busy harbour front to the old Citadel built to protect this important naval port. Only a few steps away are both the Metro Centre (sports events and concerts) and the Convention Centre. Of course, there are the usual great restaurants and pubs of Halifax within very short walking distance as well. I was in town for a 3-day meeting and the mid-September weather could not have been better! The photo shows the clock-tower of the Citadel overlooking the street leading up to The Prince George on the left.

Unique Quality: A pool and health facility is located on the 2nd floor. If you happen to be in Halifax during inclement weather, there is an underground passageway that will connect you into the main downtown shops and facilities without having to brave the elements. On-site parking is US$12/day. The room rate was US$150 taxes included.

Directions: Downtown core of Halifax

If you have the money, a really nice central location is the Prince George Hotel. It's within walking distance of the water and a park. It is quite pricy but it's definetely worth it.
A regular room runs about $270 a night.

Unique Quality: Very upper class hotel. If you're going to Halifax for a concert, most bands stay there, so book and get yourself some close-ups.
