This is a grand old hotel with polished brass, and the aura of another era. Service is friendly and efficient. It is centrally located with regard to Dalhousie University, the down town restaurant scene, Queen Elizabeth II Hospital, etc. and across the street from the extensive Public Garden.
So it is a great location, particularly if you don't have a car. If you have a car be prepared to pay $22 a day for parking. It is an expense account hotel. What I noted when I was at breakfast was the predominance of business travellers and older people. The buffet breakfast is the usual expense account price in the range of $15.00.
Our room on the 8th floor had no view other than a building roof and some tall buildings surrounding the roof. If you were on the other side of the hall you would have looked out at the public gardens which I am sure would have been very nice.
There are equally good or better places to stay in down town Halifax.
