Hotels on the harbour
Halifax is an Atlantic seaport, so it's home to a thriving harbour. Staying close to the water puts you in a great spot to explore the eclectic waterfront, which features numerous historic buildings, shops, dining establishments and a variety of old marine craft. Make sure you visit the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 for an in-depth look at Canada’s immigration history.
The picturesque waterfront has attracted some of the world’s biggest hotel names including Radisson, Four Points by Sheraton, Delta and Westin. Comfortable rooms, generous facilities and breathtaking views should be expected when you stay at any of these hotels.
Backpacking through Canada
Canada is an enormous country that many travellers choose to explore in one long trip that often requires a strict budget. If you’re visiting Halifax, you can find cheap accommodation in the form of local hostels. Shared rooms and social events make it easier to meet people in hostels and although the beds aren't as heavenly as the ones in an expensive hotel, it's still easy to sleep well.
Both the Heritage House Hostel and Halifax Backpackers are located in Halifax’s city centre, positioned close to bars, shops and all the popular attractions. You can find everything you need for an enjoyable stay, plus some fun themed nights run by the staff.
A room by a lake
Halifax is known for its array of beautiful lakes and if you choose to stay in a lakeside hotel, you're able to distance yourself from the city and enter a tranquil environment. Revel in the Canadian wildlife and landscapes outside your window, before taking a stroll along the water’s edge with that special someone.
The Best Western Plus Chocolate Lake provides the best balance of city living and nature escape; while a couple of lakeside B&Bs let you enjoy a peaceful holiday without any noisy distractions. The Express Lodge and the Quality Inn Mic Mac look over Lake Banook and are close to a lush park area.
