This is a very nice hotel but not as luxurious as the Ritz or something similar. Still very comfy, roomy, clean. But even if it were not, the staff would make up for it. The most helpful people I have met. Communication is not rushed or aloof. Great place to stay. OK but now I am worried you might think it is like Holiday Inn. No, it really is quite elegant. Showers some of the best equipped.

Nice hotel in a very good location, close to the Citadel and short walk to the harbourfront. Room was comfortable and we had a bit of a view of the water. Morning buffet was lacking and parking is expensive but we would stay there again due to location and comfortability.

Outstanding stay, The event that brought us to Halifax was the "Tattoo".. Couldn't have been a closer location.Unfortunately the survey was too long. I'm not good at wordsmithing. If you really need more I'm going to quit.

Lovely place to stay, regular rooms only have double beds mind you....in today's day and age, beds should be nothing less than queens. Some noise heard on final night of stay...some renos going on. Great pool for kids and nice hot tub for adults! Decent gym area, very convenient location for downtown Halifax activities/events especially Metro Centre (Tattoo).

Stayed at the Prince George Hotel over the Canada Day Weekend, to attend the Royal Tattoo. The hotel is across the street from the Metro Dome where the Tattoo was being held. The staff is friendly and professional. We were made to feel at home.

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.
