Nice hotel, staff and breakfast. Location is 8 blocks uphill/ downhill from waterfront. Walking the 8 blocks uphill back to the hotel was a physical workout. I would have preferred a hotel about 4 blocks or less from water
The staff were professional and couteous, the room was clean and spacious, breadkfast is provided, and the location is central to the downtown area. Nothing.
I was taking my daughter to Dalhousie university, a 4km round trip from this hotel. Lovely rooftop terrace overlooking the harbour, walking distance to shops and restaurants....and the campus. A reasonable drive to shopping and sights outside of the city centre. The room was very spacious with a handy mini kitchen area. A good sized decent fitness facility with hot tub. I will be back, perhaps with family. Two levels of parking underneath. The girls at the front desk were very helpful with directions anywhere I asked to go. I was thankful for the use of the business centre and printer for the printing of my boarding pass before I left. No.
Very Convenient and great amentities, within,room very comfortable.
The harbour view for only $10 upgrade Breakfast room got very congested at certain times, especially around the very slow moving toaster.
Location, spacious suite
Excellent hotel loved the renos since our last stay.
The room was a comfortable size and the bed was great. House keeping was loud while cleaning the rooms. The floors were not vaccumed once in our week long stay at the hotel.
I loved the room, the location, the gym, the breakfast and the staff! There is not a single thing not to love about this hotel!
Location was fabulous with restaurants very near and close to the waterfront - a lot of Halifax is reachable by a short walk.
Friendly staff. Fast and efficient maintenance assistance when we needed door locked on adjoining room which had been left opened. Bathroom toiletries were nice quality. Bed wasn't very comfy and the pillows were the absolute worst (had ear and neck ache next morning). Felt like thin walls, especially when a crying dog woke us up at 6:30am.
Good location. Good lounge. Excellent restaurant. Nice staff. Pillows are way too hard. They used to have down. They no longer know the difference between down and feather pillows.
It is simple but nice The ends are too soft for me
The staff and the location were great.The bed was very comfortable. I thought the price for parking was excessive and the room rate was very high.Parking should have been included in the room rate at the price I paid.
comfortable bed and great maid service Underground waking to Scotia Square! Called ahead to make sure their parking would accommodate a full size truck. Was told yes. Getting in was not a problem but getting out was nerve wracking!! One truck had its side scaped trying to maneuver the tight corner while another had its truck cap scraped while we were there!!!
When booked, we had hoped for a hotel within walking distance of all our past memories - from the Citadel to the waterfront - and The Prince George fit the bill perfectly. We went to the Tattoo on Friday evening - and when booking, had no idea where the building centre holding the event was. Imagine how pleased we were to learn it was across the street! Missed a hotel bar....
Location, cleanliness, modern, great parking, long time client. In the past I ahve been a client of this hotel many times for business purposes and had great service. Not this time. I was denied my provicial government discount and was very displeased. It was not until it went to the manager in he morning that the decision was reversed. The reason I was told that I was denied was because I booked on line. As I feel thisis an advertising tool, I feel that this was not a reason and that I am the same client I was am. In the morning however, I was told that I was denied as the hotel was booked to capacity. I have never heard of this before. The manager finally reversed the decision after lengthy diecussion but still charged me $10 extra over what the clerk told me was the government rate the night before. Very poor service and not an enjoyable stay. Unfortunate as I actually love to stay here.
The dinner we had Friday night was absolutely marvellous! Both dishes were elegantly presented and cooked to perfection.
i have been staying at the prince since 1987 the location i likeb best no
The facilities and were excellent. The location is ideal for the city of Halifax.TH The P.G. was expensive as all hotels are in the Halifax area.
The overall feel of the hotel was welcoming. Lovely facility and well maintained. Staffing was courteous and pleasant and very helpful. We loved the location and the fact that we could walk along the boardwalk and also walk around the city itself from that point. We were pleasantly surprised by a lovely bottle of Champagne in our room as we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. As I said, the staff was fabulous. It would have been nice to have had an option for breakfast but we were happy to see Starbucks on site and had our coffee and yogurt breakfast each day and saved the extra calories for a wonderful dinner in town on our walks. As for parking, it was an unexpected expense as we thought it was included in cost of reservation. As we found, however, in large cities this is common. Our car was safe and accessible and it was worth the money not to worry.
Convenient location. Was very overpriced.
The location was exellent!! no
Ubicación Estaba a sólo una cuadra de la orilla. Había un bar completo en el vestíbulo. Y un desayuno completo a un precio razonable en la mañana. La habitación estaba limpia y era espaciosa. El personal era muy servicial y complaciente. No se puede pedir un mejor hotel para nuestras vacaciones.
Hotel was awesome and very impressed, however the elevators are extremely slow. It took upwards of 10-15 mins at times for us to get up and down to and from the 15th floor.
Beautiful new rooms, spacious, great location. waited for 30 minutes to check in (huge lineup with lots of agitated guests) only one elevator, so waited 10+ minutes to get on the elevator EVERY time we had to use it (ended up giving up and taking the stairs a few times) For $180/night we could have stayed at one of Halifax's other beautiful hotels with less headaches.
The hotel was in walking distance to all if halifax harbor front. We wished there was a small fridge in the room.
good breakfast and great location. Easy access to all site seeing amenities & waterfront attractions. Professional, curteous and efficient service at front desk. Even the cleaning staff was friendly and helpful. liked the added security of needing the room card for the parking and the use of the elevator. Lack of fan in the bathroom. Pool temperature was a bit too cool to enjoy.
Reception and staff was friendly No wireless in the room. Conversations from other room could be heard. The air in the 10th floor could be freshened-too much smoking smell even in the corridors.
The location is excellent.
Promixity to downtown. It was old. Furniture and fixtures very dated. Very small bathrooms. Undergoing major renovations.
The house staff were very friendly and accommodating. I am aware that the power failure was not due to the hotel itself, but a result of Hurricane Bill.. However, the fact that we had very little water, were unable to flush the toilets and could not use the phone to request an escort down the very dark stairwell for the entirety of the Saturday was very inconvenient. In particular, the toilet issue was very frustrating with no alternatives offered to guests.
It was very close to shopping centres and easy access to the pier, where we spent 80% of our time.
Our room had very bad smell to it?
The staff was friendly enough. The people serving in the restaurant were very nice and friendly, eating there was a nice occasion The hotel is starting to look worn... Our room could have been better it needs some renovations... it was still acceptible
The generously sized room was much appreciated. I enjoyed the easy way staff switched between English and French. I also liked the willingness to offer non-menu items for breakfast. The rooming staff were flexible and we didn't feel pushed out of our room for their convenience, which is something which happens in some hotels. The room heating unit was noisy and had to be switched off to allow sleep. Normally it might not have mattered but I was jet lagged, feeling cold and needed some daytime shut-eye.
We had a comfortable and clean room. Good food in the restaurant and friendly staff It cost $14.00 for overnight parking
Close to the Metro Centre We booked a smoking room and didn't get it. The A/C was broken and no window to open for fresh air, we were given a small fan and the pillows were flat and lumpy.
Location, great room size for value. Full kitchen really had a full kitchen. Lobby is so tiny and doesn't feel like hotel. If you are looking to sleep in, keep in mind the very loud construction directly across the street starting at 7am (summer-ongoing 2015) When I got to my room there was a large soaking wet spot on the floor... When I asked I didn't get an answer.. Hmm..
Didn't like tha I checked in after 3, but only one room was ready, so I was over the parking garage on the first floor.
