    My friend and I spent 3 nights here while visiting Halifax, and although it was a 30 minute walk to downtown, loved the hotel, its staff and the interesting neighbourhood of the North end. Lots of lovely cafes, small shops and a Cindery.

    Rooms were very clean. Typical continental breakfast. Free parking and close to everything in the downtown area. We had a 4 night stay and had no problems. Neighborhood was safe. Staff was very helpful and pleasant.
