“Still the best in downtown Halifax”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Over the years, we have stayed in many hotels in downtown Halifax and consistently come back to the Prince George as we did on a recent trip in late June 2013. Unfortunately it isn't cheap and sometimes the extra cost can make it our second choice when several of the other Halifax hotels come in with a much better deal. Still, it is the best and most convenient place in the downtown and was again thoroughly enjoyable. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms well laid out and clean and the location is close to most of the attractions, bars and restaurants in Halifax. The internet works well and the parking is convenient although tight for a larger car and not cheap. We have never eaten in the hotel since there are some many nearby choices. Obviously, the higher rooms are nicer and if on the backside of the hotel, there is a view of the harbour.

We stayed there for a family vacation. It is right downtown, and a block away from seeing the citadel. In a year, when they build a conference center across the street, it will be booked solid I'm sure.

It was nothing special - clean, quiet, excellent, helpful staff - what I'd expect in any hotel. It was close to downtown, so I could walk and see some of the sites. Parking was $22/day + tax, and there was free wi fi.

They have a nice little pool that opens out to a little courtyard. I should've had lunch out there - there are tables and it's nice up there.

I would stay here again.

Located in central downtown area of Halifax, walking distance to all sites. A quality hotel, with efficient and friendly staff. The rooms are a good size and very clean, and well maintained. A private car park is conveniently located in the hotel basement....but it costs about 25 dollars per day to park there..!!

The Prince George Hotel has pleasant rooms in a relatively standard, but clean, pleasant setting. The hotel has a good breakfast, and nice staff, with $24 self parking downstairs in the garage. It's nothing amazing, but if you need a full service hotel, this is a very find place to stay.

Stayed at The Prince George for one night on a recent business trip to Halifax. Check-in was fast and easy. The room was spacious and comfortable. I found that the iron in the room was defective, but a call to the front desk lead to that being replaced quickly. Room service breakfast was fast a tasty, and it was nice to wake up so close to The Citadel. I will definitely stay here on my next trip out east n

We stayed for three nights and found the location of the hotel ideal. We walked all over downtown Halifax and spent a lot of time at the harbour area. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The beds were very comfy!
