Editor's "Best Value" Picks Jul 9, 2014 | Musetta R.
Why these hotels? Halifax is a treasure trove of good hotels. It's hard to find cheaper ones, though, as the prices are quite high on the eastern borders of Canada!

I like to challenge myself to find hotels that fulfill well on the value proposition, those that provide great value for the price and those which most travellers consider affordable. One thing that is a definite plus in Halifax, is that most hotels are highly rated by guests which generally means they are well-maintained properties that have good customer service.

If you're looking for something extra special, I recommend the Prince George for traditional luxury or the Delta Halifax for modern luxury, both connected to the Halifax pedway system, thereby accessing major attractions such as Scotia Square Mall, Metro Centre, and the World Trade and Convention Centre by means of a covered walkway or underground--good for those chillier days on the eastern coast!

A little farther from the downtown core, but still within walking distance is the elegant lady of Nova Scotia, the historical heritage property now known as the Westin Nova Scotian located at the Halifax Seaport, the second largest natural seaport in the world--where my parents (and many others) landed when immigrating to Canada.

My picks below reflect good value hotels in Halifax that are a little easier on the pocketbook and should provide guests with comfortable and more affordable stays in Halifax.
5120 Salter Street, Halifax
The Courtyard hotel is well-liked for its accommodations, views of the harbour, staff and location. Guests showed appreciation for the quality of their rooms and beds, some mentioned excellent views of the harbour and easy access to shops, restaurants, the waterfront, museums and historic areas. Some appreciated the convenience of valet parking and others mentioned the availability of metered parking in the area.

This hotel enjoys high ratings online 4.5/5 and a 90% recommendation rate. The Courtyard Halifax Downtown received a Certificate of Excellence in 2013.
5184 Morris Street, Halifax
Someone I know from Halifax said that If you're looking for a smaller inn or boutique-style property, the Haliburton Inn is the best in the city. Many reviewers seem to agree. According to guests this is a wonderful old historic hotel in a great location with extremely pleasant staff. There's a courtyard with a garden and bistro tables, and an on-site restaurant serving a free breakfast with freshly-baked muffins and cakes. They also serve dinner that many reviewers provided rave reviews about.

The location of the hotel is greatly appreciated by guests for being within walking distance of the waterfront boardwalk, restaurants, shops and other attractions. Guests enjoyed their clean and quaint rooms with comfortable beds and included in the room rates are breakfast, Wi-Fi and parking. Because the property does not have an elevator, it is not recommended for those who cannot manage stairs and luggage (although the hotel is willing to help out in this regard).

The Halliburton is well-reviewed online with an guest rating of 4/5 and an 80% recommendation rate.
The Halliburton received a Certificate of Excellence in 2013.
1980 Robie Street a Quinpool, Halifax
The Atlantica Hotel Halifax is located on the west side of Robie Street to the south of Quinpool Road. Nearby attractions include Halifax Common, the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History, the Halifax Citadel , and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

The rooms are very clean and well-maintained and the staff are hospitable and attentive, according to guests. There's a well-reviewed restaurant on site. Some people have commented on the comfort of the beds and said they had a great sleep at the hotel.

This hotel has been recently renovated in early 2014. This hotel received high marks online with an guest rating of 8.2/10 and a 76% recommendation rate. It received a  Certificate of Excellence in 2013.

Where to stay and what to do in Halifax
Downtown Halifax is where you'll find most of the attractions Halifax is known for in a relatively small area. The Halifax Citadel National Historic Site is a prominent feature that is surrounded by the downtown core and is most definitely worth a bit of your time to explore. In addition, nearby you'll find the Bedford Institute of Oceanography (largest of its kind in Canada), the Alexander Keith's brewery (a no-brainer site to visit, of course) and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The Maritime Museum is home to many artifacts of the Titanic. In fact, Halifax played a major role in a recovery mission for the ill-fated ship and is the final resting place of many victims from that tragedy.

Just outside the downtown core
If you need to pay a visit to Dalhousie University your best bet is to find a hotel downtown. The university, while not located in the core, is only about a 10 minute drive west of downtown.

There are a handful of hotels scattered along the the outer regions of the city for travelers looking for quick access to some of Halifax's many lakes as well as Long Lake Provincial Park. However, downtown is probably where most will want to stay.

Surrounding Area
Dartmouth is just a short car or ferry ride (or slightly longer swim) across the Halifax Harbour. Take the MacDonald Bridge Road by car or hop on a ferry from downtown to take you across.

Acadia University is located in Wolfville, about an hour's drive from Halifax.
