For a last minute get away, my husband & I booked a room online and ended up getting this hotel. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by a very sweet young lady behind the front counter. As she took our information to check us in, she asked us what was bringing us to Halifax. We told her we used to live in the city when we went to Saint Mary's & we just wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of Pittsburgh for a weekend. She was extremely enthusiastic and the male staff member that was working chimed in as well. They seemed very sincere and we had a great conversation with them. They also suggested we upgrade to their "Gold" level rooms which had been recently renovated. The room was lovely!!! They also put us on the side with a view of the commons park, where my hubby & I spent a lot of time together when we first met:) When we went back downstairs, we inquired with our buddies from the desk about where to have dinner, & they recommended the hotel's restaurant above all. We trusted them and rounded the corner to enjoy a delicious meal!! I was surprised at how good the food was, as we had eaten at "Season's" when we lived in the city way back and it was just average then. I had the fish and chips (something I miss about Nova Scotia) and my husband enjoyed the calamari and duck very much! (Which says a lot because he can be a picky eater). Since our dinner was so good that night, we went for breakfast in Season's the next day. The buffet is amazing and WELL WORTH the 15 bucks!!!! I was so ful and everything was delicious! We had an eventful weekend, and our visit to the hotel certainly reconfirmed why we enjoyed Halifax so much when we went to university here. I'd like to thank the wonderful front desk staff for being so charming, accommodating and above all friendly!!
Upgrade to Gold!!!! It`s worth the extra money and you get a fantastic view because you`re on the up...
