Letting Go....

In the midst of my preparation for my Great Adventure, I had to take a little detour to Nova Scotia (well not exactly a little detour as it is on the opposite coast of Canada to Victoria). My daughter Caitlin is starting her first year of University at Dalhousie University, so I accompanied her to get her settled in...and to be honest to help put …

... and chips (crisps), I headed off to the Citadel at the top of Halifax, where I was able to visit the old Army Barracks. I finished my weekend with a stroll around the beautiful Botanical Gardens, reading the end of a moving Simone De Beauvoir book. Well, actually, I finished my weekend with a McChicken Sandwich meal from McDonalds but the gardens were still as beautiful and the book still as moving. Overall, I had a fantastic time in Halifax and was left wanting more. ...

... we saw our first tree with color. It stood proudly at the bow of the graves. An interesting story from the Titanic was about a non-Jew buried in the cemetery's Jewish section because of he was using a false name. He had kidnapped his girl friend's kids, and boarded the ship using the alias. Though he did died in the sinking, he managed to save the children and they were reunited with their mother following the sinking of the Titanic.

... south. After spending one night at the quite attractive St. Andre-Avellin campsite (N45 43.524 W75 03.483) we continued eastwards following the Ottawa river, a tributary of the mighty St. Lawrence along which ocean going ships make their way right in land to the Great Lakes.
Near the northern banks of the Ottawa River we made a pitstop at the attractive old colonial town of Montebello and wandered around the grounds of the interesting Manoir Papineau ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Atlantica Hotel Halifax

    Not so clean, bad management. Stay away!

    from

    I have just returned from a few day stay at the Holiday Inn Select, and I will never stay there again. The room was acceptable, but the cleaning staff must not have been too keen on cleaning bathrooms. My bath tub had foreign hairs the night I arrived, and plenty of the nice red and black mold on the tiles. The shower curtain was dirty on the bottom and stinky on the outside. When I notified guest services, they eventually cleaned the tiles but I had to put up with the smelly shower curtain my whole stay. The bathtub did not get cleaned once. I had to use my shower shoes. To add insult to injury, my phone service got disabled one of the nights. All of the hotel rooms face a couple of busy streets, and you cannot get away from the noise from juiced-up cars and motorcycles. NEVER AGAIN!

    Very Nice Hotel but Out of the Way

    from

    Stayed at the Holiday Inn Select Aug. 7th to the 10th. Hotel was very clean and nice and quiet as well. Check-in was pleasant and overall stay was good. There were no facecloths provided and when I asked housekeeping staff they said there were none available due to a shortage. I was quite surprised seeing that we were staying in a hotel in Canada and not the Dominican or Cuba. Everything was fine until check-out when I was waiting for my deposit to be refunded. There was hardly any conversation between the front desk staff and myself. Only thing asked was if I had consumed the bottled water in the room. I told them no and she said they were just printing off my detail sheet and it would take a few moments. I'm sure they had someone check the room to confirm I hadn't used the $2.99 bottle of water that was in the room. The lady who checked me out gave me my deposit back and asked me to sign a form and never so much as said thank you for staying or even asked how my stay was. The hotel is also too far away from downtown. It is only a 20 min walk or $7.00 taxi ride but I've stayed at the Delta Barrington and the Marriot Harbour front and will pick one of those next time I visit Halifax. The convenience of the pedway attached to those hotels is worth the extra price you pay for those hotels. Also, everything is so much closer to those two hotels.

    Stay Away !!

    from

    The very worst. Booked a King size 2 months ago and they said they could not guarantee reservation when we arrived. Doing electrical work between 10 AM and 6 PM. NO ELEVATOR DURING THIS PERIOD. STAY AWAY...

    Good for the price

    from

    Clean and safe with a staff that was friendly and helpful even through they were a bit overwhelmed by tour groups at the time. Rooms are standard Holiday Inn so not fancy but are comfortable. A good place to stay if you are on a limited budget and/or don't plan on spending a lot of time in your room. Nothing was negative about the place but nothing was outstanding either.

    Pool area was full of kids who seemed to be having a good time,

    Not a bad hotel for the moeny

    from

    This hotel is very clean and not to far from the downtown core. It is about 7 dollars by taxi or 20 minutes to walk. However, if you do walk be prepared to take comfortable shoes as there are many hills getting to the Harbour. The pool is nice and clean and there is an outdoor patio if you want to relax and read a paper. The room was your average hotel room. The service was good and everyone was friendly.

    The only bad thing I can say about this hotel was that the bathroom door was jammed and it was hard to get out sometimes. Other then that if you are on a budget try this hotel, but if you can afford a bit more try to stay closer to the harbour!!!

    Great Family Value

    from

    We decided to take our two small children to Halifax for March Break this year and we had a remarkable time at the Holiday Inn Select! Our accomodations were wonderful, you can't beat kids eating free especially in such an elegant yet friendly atmosphere. The pool accomadates young swimmers and the front desk staff couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and valued. Definately something we will enjoy doing more often!

    Just What You'd Expect from Holiday Inn.

    from

    Not a bad hotel. Clean, pleasant, like a typical Holiday Inn. The area is a bit edgy, so if you're a tourist, I would recommend something a little closer to the waterfront. But for just a clean, quiet place to sleep, this is a good bet.

    Outstanding

    from

    I stay at the holiday inn twicw a year. everytime I come I'm always welcomed by my fav front desk agent jl. staff are excellent, restaurant is beautiful and very taste. service at front desk is outstanding. rooms are always clean, an excellent choise for a nice romantic gettaway.

    Highly Recommended!!!

    from

    My b/f and I used to do a long-distance relationship between New Brunswick and Cape Breton, and we would often meet in Halifax for a getaway. We always stayed at the Holiday Inn Select on Robie St. because of the great location, exceptional service and affordable luxury. In 2001, we stayed there on the weekend following Valentine's Day and were treated to valentine shortbread cookies in our room with our names on them...both of us believing that the other had set it up! This is just one example of the "above and beyond" service offered by this establishment. I have now moved to Halifax, but my b/f and I still reminisce about our times at the Holiday!

    Poor Service for Women

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel many times and it always used to be friendly to women travelling alone.

    My last two visits here have given me the impetus to seek a new hotel. The clerk was very snarky with me when i was checking out. On the second occasion, I was put on the second floor in a smoking room despite the fact I cannot tolerate smoke. This was done even though I specfically requested a non-smoking room. I was made to feel very unwanted!
