A Halifax institution which is just a block away from the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site.
With bell boys welcoming you on arrival and a grand lobby with dark-wood panel décor, high ceilings and sparkling chandeliers, a stay at the Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites takes you back to the 1930s heyday of international travel. There’s also a mezzanine floor with a grand piano and cosy sofas where you can relax after a day of exploring the biggest city in the Canadian Maritimes.
For an on-site dinner, head to the old-world English pub-style Arms Restaurant where you can enjoy hearty dishes like steak and seafood specialities. The restaurant is also open for breakfast or brunch and lunch. For an almost 100 year old hotel, the rooms are surprisingly modern with big comfy pillowtop beds, light and neutral fixtures and fittings and bright-white sheets.
At the heart of Halifax, next to the public gardens, a block from the Halifax Citadel and a 10- to 15-minute walk from the main waterfront area
