More Room Types

The Lord Nelson was built in 1928, but guests praise the fully modernized guest rooms and amenities. The hotel's public areas are adorned with gold trimmings and ornate wood carvings that evoke the elegance of another era. Steps from Spring Garden Road, the landmark hotel is close to shopping and restaurants, and the impressive new Halifax Central Library is a four-minute walk from the hotel.

Across the street, the Halifax Public Gardens boast restored Victorian fountains and tropical plants. Guests can walk to the peak of Citadel Hill in under 15 minutes to enjoy views of the harbour and Georges Island.  

The hotel's on-site restaurant, the Arms Public House, has been recently renovated with British influence in both decor and menu. With eye-catching tin ceilings and cozy leather furniture, the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests can enjoy a meal and a perfectly poured pint. 

Guest rooms have a traditional style with dark wood furniture and subdued hues. The bathrooms are typically small for an almost century-old hotel, but emanate luxury with granite countertops and Aveda bath products. Complimentary Wi-Fi is appreciated by all guests of the Lord Nelson hotel. 

From the Press:
  • "It certainly has location going for it: It's right across from the lovely Public Gardens and abuts lively Spring Garden Road" -- Frommer's
  • "When rock stars (such as the Rolling Stones) come to Halifax, they stay here. It's an elegant yet not stuffy 1920s building right across from Halifax Public Gardens" -- Lonely Planet
  • "With its high-coffered ceiling, the lobby of this popular brown-brick hotel is spacious and elegant, with Art Deco details dating from its 1920s construction" -- Rough Guide
