Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Built just after the Canadian Confederation, this Victorian mansion has been running as a hotel for 140 years and has hosted famous guests throughout history like P.T. Barnum of Barnum & Bailey, American magnate George Vanderbilt and Oscar Wilde. 

Situated on Barrington Street which is just around the corner from shopping on Spring Garden Road, and a short stroll down the street lined with heritage row houses to the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market and harbourfront boardwalk.

All the rooms are adorned with period furnishings like four-poster beds and floral wallpaper each with its own style and modern amenities like Jacuzzis, air-conditioning and Wi-Fi. Continental breakfast buffet is free every morning for all guests, as is on-site parking, which can come at a premium in the historic downtown city.
