Well, where do we begin?

The people…helpful, friendly…the ocean and the nightlife scene.

1.THE LOCALS

It’s certainly true that in Halifax, whoever you are, it won’t take long for a stranger to strike up a conversation. CN Traveler readers recently voted Halifax as one of the friendliest cities in the world! There’s just something about Maritimes’ hospitality that really stands out, and don’t be surprised if you make a few new friends on your visit.

2.WE’RE THE PERFECT SIZE

Halifax knows how to achieve the perfect balance of big city flare and small town charm. Our downtown in a hub of culture, food, sports, and business, but head up to the South or the North end and suddenly it’s like you’re in a different city. Not to mention, we’re easy to navigate because there aren’t a thousand different neighborhoods

3.WE’RE A UNIVERSITY TOWN

Halifax boasts 5 large universities in the city alone, so there is no shortage of young people, which means the city is always alive. It makes Halifax feel safer, and if you’re a student as well, you can basically guarantee that you will recognize at least three people when you go for a stroll around.

4.WE LIVE ON THE OCEAN

Salty air, ocean breeze, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Halifax is also home to North America’s largest waterfront boardwalk. Really, what more explanation do you need?

5.WE’RE SURROUNDED BY INCREDIBLE NATURAL LANDSCAPES

Need a break from the city? No problem.  Head to the Public Gardens, Point Pleasant Park, or a little bit further out out of town to the picturesque, UNESCO site of Peggy‘s Cove.

6.THERE‘S A GREAT MUSIC SCENE

No matter what you’re in the mood for, it’s easy to get your groove on in Halifax! With the most bars per square foot in Canada, there’s no shortage of nightlife options.

Did you know?

  • The Halifax Explosion in 1917 was the world’s largest man-made explosion prior to Hiroshima. About 2,000 people were killed and 9,000 injured when the SS Mont Blanc, a French cargo ship loaded with wartime explosives collided with an empty Norwegian ship.
  • Halifax enjoys four distinct seasons. Winters are cold and snowy, whilst summer temperatures are usually in the 20-23°C range. Look out for Atlantic Hurricane Season when Halifax can suffer the brunt of tropical storms, depressions and hurricanes. It’s normal to see 670 mm of rain over the period from June 1st to November 30th.
  • Halifax has a strong connection to the Titanic sinking. There is a permanent Titanic Museum at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

What clients are saying

We visited Moore Suites as a cheaper alternative to booking two hotel rooms for a one month stay. The apartment was spacious, immaculately clean, had a lovely little balcony and was well stocked with tea, coffee and washing up items. Far nicer to come back to than any hotel room we have stayed at in Halifax, and we visit at least once a year. The staff were very polite and welcoming. Within a one minute walk to Spring Garden, the location was great! This will definitely be the preferred choice next time.

The suite was very cosy and spacious. We’d like to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at the Charterhouse and how much we have appreciated your help and kindness.

Just wanted to thank you for being so pleasant with me and for renting out the beautiful apartment. Even though my husband and I are not in Halifax for a pleasure trip, we appreciated living in such a high-end residence. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

I would like to say how much I enjoyed my stay in apartment 401 Waterfront Place. I stayed for a month while working in Halifax. The suite is amazing and the view, day and night, is spectacular. I will highly recommend staying here.

- Linda

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay! We enjoyed our stay very much and will recommend your location to anyone who asks. We very well may be back some day and will definitely look for availability here due to the accommodations, location, cleanliness of the rooms and the kindness of the staff. Thank you, it was a trip of a lifetime.

- Samantha & Joe

Our stay back home has been wonderful. I just wish it could have been longer. We really enjoyed our stay at your suite at the Paramount. So many thoughtful details put into the suite; there wasn’t anything we lacked. The view of the Public Gardens was most enjoyable, as well as the convenience of this location. I hope to come back next summer!
