“great staff great stay, bit pricy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

Three cheers for the hotel that puts makeup mirrors into what are usually very badly lit bathrooms. This one even had a magnifying lens on in...perfect for contact wearers. Clean, great location, great accommodating staff, comfortable...but it was about $50 more expensive than I would have priced it.

Room Tip: The rooms are almost identical between the fourth and sixth floor, the sixth floor is where they hav...

The Prince George is in a good central location, handy for visiting The Citadel, the harbour and all the other attractions that Halifax has to offer. The staff were welcoming and helpful and informative over where to eat, what to do etc. We stayed twice at this hotel during our visit to the Maritimes, once at the beginning of the holiday for 4 nights and then at the end of our holiday for 3 nights. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the in room tea/coffee maker was most welcome. My only gripe would be the lack of breakfast included in the room rate but this seems to be the norm with North American hotels and is fast becoming the norm here in the UK. We did opt for Sunday brunch on our second visit to the Prince George, which we felt was good value for money - plenty of choice and well presented. All in all a pleasant experience staying here. I would recommend this hotel.

We have stayed at the Prince George many times over the last few years. The rooms are pretty average, however the service, pricing and location is Excellent! The staff are very friendly. The bathrooms are stocked with Aveda products. The lobby is beautiful. Gio is next door .. The Keg across the street .. and my fav restaurant in Halifax The Press Gang is right around the corner. Its an easy walk to down to the harbour. Also as an animal lover, this is also a dog friendly hotel. All in all I highly recommend. And we will definitely stay again.

This hotel is in a very good location, friendly staff and a warm welcome. We stayed 2 nights and were very comfortable.
I do think it would be nice if breakfast was included in the price but this is my only issue.

This hotel is located in downtown Halifax not too far from the Harbor. The staff is friendly and routinely goes out of their way to insure that your stay is comfortable; the front desk staff and concierge service are tremendous regardless of who is on duty. Kudos to Chris, Doug, and Steve for all of your suggestions regarding things to do, places to eat, and places to go in the day and evenings. I am sure that the rest of the concierge staff is just as helpful but I primarily interacted with those previously mentioned. This hotel offers luxurious guestrooms, accommodations for pets as well as pet-free floors, a conscientious housekeeping staff, and a great security system. They even provide guests with a "time to clean" sign and request card where one can select a convenient time to have your room cleaned each day, and request amenities via a checklist. Early one morning I ordered room service and was served by a very friendly server named Heath; he readily went out of his way to go downstairs and get change because I wanted to pay cash for my meal (thanks Heath!). There is also a wide variety of restaurants, pubs, and clubs nearby. While the hotel is not too far from the waterfront area, it is situated on a steep hill which one must negotiate each time you choose to visit the Harbor; there is however a tunnel which makes this journey somewhat easier so do yourself a favor and inquire about its location when you first arrive. There is a fridge in the room but one of the few drawbacks is there is no microwave. One morning while having breakfast in the Terrace I had the most wonderful conversation with a maintenance worker named Felix from the Dominican Republic. I plan to visit this island in the near future and he willingly provided me with some great tips as to where to stay and how to get around while there. Thanks Felix for the great suggestions, and for having such a great personality!

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side offer a partial view of the Harbor!

Canada/US coast to coast, hotel #19, 3 nights

The absolute best quality of this hotel is the location. We didn't need to use the car. We walked up to the Citadel, down to the habour, up to the gardens, down to restaurant row (Argyle St). We felt the hotel did not quite rate 4 stars, hence the average rating. This was possibly due to a rogue staff member but I would blame management and their training of staff. The maid missed providing us with fresh towels and she certainly did not vacuum during our stay. When we arrived in the room the TV remote was missing, after a phone call we were provided with a new remote but shouldn't the maid have noticed. A day later my wife found a remote under the bed, I suppose a dead body under the bed would go unnoticed by this maid. My wife did report these issues to the front desk on our departure, hopefully management steps up to fix. Other than these issues the room was comfortable enough, I slept well and the staff was mostly courteous and helpful. The hotel is good value if the maid is not an issue. We would probably stay here again.

My apologies amosnov for the remote issue. Our Housekeeping team works exceptionally hard to ensure these types of issues do not happen and I am proud to say they most often don't - again my apologies this wasn't the case during your visit with us. We do have a few new team members and if they weren't trained enough or properly than I agree that is 100% my fault. I am glad to know you otherwise enjoyed your visit with us and again my apologies for the shortcomings.

We did a family long weekend here in August.The hotel is in a great area.Close to the waterfront, and the main strip of restaurants and bars. We were able to walk every where. The hotel itself was very nice, and the staff very helpful. We stayed on the club floor which was worth the extra money.We had a lounge area where there was coffee, juices, continental breakfast and snacks available all day..The rooms were not overly large, but very clean, with a nice bathroom. The beds were extremely comfortable.. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room on the club floor
