  • Hotel is very well located but more of a Marriott style than luxury hotel. Rooms are fine.

    Another superb stay at The Lord Nelson

    This historic hotel that is not, to my knowledge, part of a chain, provides the most wonderful experience for a short or long stay. The location is the best of the many nice hotels in downtown Halifax--only this one has the most idyllic setting across from the Public Garden. The staff is extraordinarily attentive, conscientious, and helpful. This was a return stay here for me, based on my first exceptional experience. This time I enjoyed a Guinness in the cozy and charming Arms pub as well.

    Excellent Hotel, Excellent Staff

    From the time you walk into the Lobby of The Lord Nelson Hotel, the Front Desk Staff make you feel as though they are welcoming you Home. They do everything they can to ensure the most pleasant stay possible. No request is too big or too small, they accommodate your every wish. The rooms are very clean and beds extremely comfortable. Room service was excellent, thoroughly enjoyed our Dinner from "The Arms" Restaurant. We stayed there in October and again Feb 17th to 19h and will definitely be staying at The Lord Nelson when we visit Halifax again. Excellent.

    Everything was great except leaving parking garage

    Everything was great until we tried to leave the parking garage at the end of our stay. Our pass card wouldn’t scan to let us out. So we called on the intercom for help. We got tired or waiting for assistance (after 10-15 minutes). So all 4 vehicles waiting to leave had to find an alternate way out.
