“Not the greatest stay”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

The bathrooms need to be cleaned after each guest and inspected to insure it has been done. Also there was a loud dog that was in distress in one of the rooms. The dog started clawing crying and barking at 7am. I called the front seat about it and they just told me I was on the animal floor. Wow. I guess I should have requesting to not be on that floor.

1/5 isn't very good Garfield L.... I wish your stay was much better. It sounds like we had a housekeeping issue in the bathroom of the room you stayed in - my sincerest apologies for that. I will share your feedback with our housekeeping team so we all know you were let down.... I can assure you we have an amazing group looking after the cleanliness of our rooms and public areas and they take a huge amount of pride in the work they do..... comments like yours are not common for us. Again my apologies that we let you down.

Just under the citadel. You can walk to waterfront and up to public garden. No coin operated laundry facilities but you can use one in its sister hotel, which is five minutes walk from the hotel. Breakfast buffet is very good.

Our recent arival was very late 12:30am we had driven for 5 hours and not stopped. When we entered our room a lunch had been left for us along with a note which included our dogs name. Sure made us feel at home and to have a snack at that time of nigh was terrific. The Prince George puts customers first!!!

We stayed at the Prince George for one night on arriving in Halifax. It is a beautiful hotel. We reserved a two room suite which was very comfortable. The food in their restaurant was very good. This was not an inexpensive hotel, but I liked it very much.

If you are parking a vehicle that turns out to be "over-sized" (GMC Yukon), make sure that the gracio9us offer to valet park is FULLY explained to you. I didn't expect FREE parking, but I also didn't expect it to be THAT much more than self-parking. Public space in the hotel is lovely, rooms/hallways are in need of some attention.

We made our first trip to the Maritimes and had a couple of nights to finish up in Halifax. We were advised that the Prince George hotel was a nice place to stay in downtown. We heartily agree! All the staff were excellent, room was nice and the food at Gio's restaurant was especially delicious. A great finish to our visit of the east coast.
We'd definetly stay here again if we get back to Halifax.

True maritime hospitality at the Prince George Hotel. I arrived very early after a red eye flight and was planning to crash in a friend's room until I could check into my room. I am glad I asked what time check in was before heading to my friend's room because the staff at the front desk set me up in a room right away! It was so nice to arrive to a room, obviously this isn't always available on those days they sell out but still it was very nice after a long flight.
