Good hotel downtown Halifax?

We have booked in to Comfort Inn however now we are thinking we would like to be a little closer to downtown since most of the things we want to see if down there. Any recommendations?

Check the TA reviews. Hotwire or Privrline may hsve some deals. Go for a four star downtown.

I have stayed at Westin and Marriott. Hands down I recommend the Marriott as the walls aren't thin like the Westin. I hear Courtyard Marriott is nice too. Great location for any of 3

Prince George is also popular and the Radisson which is newly opened from an extensive renovation.

The difference in price between the Comfort and the other downtown hotels will be significant, but you will spend it in Taxis to go back and forth. If you have a car, stay outside downtown and you will get free parking and free breakfast at most places. Here is a link of a post I put together about extra charges in Halifax hotels.

I think you are smart to think about switching to downtown if you plan to spend your time downtown. Sure, it might cost you a little bit more, but you won't have to drive back and forth and try and find parking and for me, that equals a more relaxed enjoyable vacation with less wasted time for traveling. That way you can essentially walk everywhere and feel the culture of the downtown more, also if you decide to have some drinks on a patio or at a pub you won't have to worry about driving. Just my opinion.

For downtown hotels you could look at the Westin, The Prince George, Lord Nelson, Cambridge Suites, the Marriott that is right by historic properties, etc etc. All are located in good spots and will be adequate if it is in the area of Spring Garden Road, Barrington Street, the waterfront etc. Downtown Halifax is quite walkable and easy to get around (although a few hills as you head up towards the Citadel).
