Cambridge Suites - Halifax
Ranked #6 of 28 Hotels in Halifax
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2010

The excellent reviews on here were not wrong!

First, the location is unbeatable. You want to do things on foot in downtown Hfx and parking is very lacking so location is key! In fact, on paper many hotels downtown look good for location, but Cambridge has the real edge.

I highly recommend the Junior Suite with a separate bedroom and kitchenette! Modern, new, very clean, tv in both rooms so when you put your kids to sleep you can hang out in the "living room".

The staff go the extra mile and are extremely helpful. They got me out of a bind by finding a babysitter for my last night so I could visit with friends.

Breakfast is decent too. Not that special but pretty good for a continental breakfast.

Dear persauns,
Thank you for your review. I have worked in hotels in halifax for 19 years and I never knew just how centrally we are located until I came to work here 2 years ago. We are close to everything downtown has to offer. I am glad you enjoyed the Junior suite and most of all I am glad you had some great interactions with our best asset - Our People! Thank you for taking the time to share a little info about your experience with us. We really appreciate it.

Rooms were clean, spacious and very well equipped.
Hotel was "Family Friendly".
Location was close to shopping, entertainment and eating venues.
Everything could be had with-in walking distance.
Staff provided quick and accurate information when asked.
When we had to leave the facility two nights due to room availablility Carrie Nunn in reservations provide several optional locations from which we were able to find acceptable accomodations.
Carrie also provided several options for activities to participate in during our stay in Halifax.
Roof top patio was a very nice surprise offering a great view of the harbour and the surrounding city.
Insummary we had no complaints and many praises for the facility and staff.
I must disclose that Carrie is our daughter but all of the staff were very nice and a pleasure to deal with.

Wife and I recently stayed five nights at this Hotel and were very impressed to say the least. Has a lot of reviews before have stated the beds are unbelievably comfortable. The service from the moment we walked into the front door until we checked out was top notch. Our maid always left us a note after she was done cleaning the room telling us to have a great stay and if we needed anything to just ask. We loved the roof top view of the City and harbor and took lots of photos from the great vantage point. When we return to Halifax in the future we will be sure to stay here again.

Cambridge Suites Halifax provided our family excellent accommodations at a great price. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready so they gave us an upgraded room that was ready. Now that's service for you!!!
The room was spacious (you appreciate the space when you have 2 teenagers!) and extremely clean. The location was perfect for us - just a short walk to the waterfront but central to a lot of things.
A huge thanks to Jessie at Dofsky's, the hotel resturaunt, who went out of her way to provide peanut-free foods for breakfast for our peanut-allergic daughter.
The staff at Cambridge were friendly and they all seemed to enjoy being there. It was a very positive environment and it made us feel very welcomed.
The next time we're in Halifax, Cambridge Suites Halifax would be our #1 place to stay!

Thank you tilley95 for posting a review. Jesse is a true asset to our breakfast experience. We are in the process of trying to clone her because we agree she is awesome. Breakfast is not easy and she does it with a smile every single day. Thank you for taking the time to post a review.

This is a hotel and staff that knows what they're doing; they know they are looking after travellers. The front desk people, for example, make a habit of asking things like: So where are you off to today? Then depending on your response proceed to fill you in with their knowledge of the area, tips, and recommendations. And that spirit of helpfulness pervades the hotel and the rest of the staff.

It's location is ideal - if you want a spectacular view of Halifax harbour, be across the street from the city's best known attraction, Citadel Hill, and just down the street from the main arena, where the annual Royal Nova Scotia Tattoo takes place every July an event not to be missed. But the hotel is a climb if your are coming back up from the Halifax waterfront. Good exercise though if you are moderately fit.

Overall, I can't remember a better experience in a visitor-friendly hotel like this since I was in Budapest years ago and stayed at the Forum Hotel. Ever since, the Forum set the standard of customer service for me. The Cambridge Suites was its equivalent.

Spent two nights here while exploring downtown Halifax. Although we have been to the city several times, this is our first experience with staying here and we found the Cambridge Suites to be a great location, near the Citadel and with lots of restaurants two blocks away on either Argyle or Spring Garden Road. The hotel has been recently renovated and everything was stylish and in good repair, with windows that actually open! I would have preferred a firmer mattress without the pillowtop effect, but thats me. Staff were great, providing restaurant recommendations and a local map. We have never seen so many servers at a self-serve breakfast; they kept the buffet filled despite the large amount of people eating at once. We didnt have a problem getting a seat at breakfast but did notice that after 10:00 the staff starting shutting it down. Breakfast was nothing special - just the usual cereal, bagels that arent, frozen muffins, hard-boiled eggs. It was free and filling, thats about all.
