On this trip, traveling with our daughter, we chose the one-bedroom suite. It features a bedroom with a king-sized and very comfortable bed, a small but full bath, and a kitchenette with microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and bar-fridge, and selection of dishes and utensils. The living area has a couch/bed, a comfortable chair, and a table with two chairs, one of which is an office-type swivel chair. There is a second work area as well with Internet access. The living room and bedroom share the television, and there is a slider between them, so real privacy is somewhat limited, but it was sufficient. The studios offer the bed and the couch, but with no privacy, so they’re suitable for a couple of people or people traveling with a child.
The hotel’s amenities include two levels of a parking garage, and on the sixth floor, there is a reasonably well-equipped exercise room with a hot tub and sauna. Off the exercise room is a large outdoor patio with great views over Halifax. On Wednesdays, guests are invited to a manager’s party in that area, with snacks and cocktails. There is also a modern restaurant/lounge, Dofsky’s, just off the lobby. In the morning, there is a complementary breakfast offered in the restaurant offering fruit, cereals, muffins, croissants, bagels, and toast. In other words, the hotel has everything the business or leisure traveler needs, including bell service, a grocery shopping service, and an excellent and helpful staff.
What else is there? Location! It is close to everything. It is an easy walk down the hill to the harbour and the historic properties, and the citadel is just up the street. Halifax’s main thoroughfare, Barrington Street, is just 3 blocks down, and there are quite a number of good pubs, wine bars, and restaurants close by, including Maxwell’s Plum, The Keg, The Shoe Shoppe, Opa!, Ryan Duffy’s, Il Mercato, and Seven. There is also a surfeit of pizza at "pizza corner" just 1 block from the hotel, and Halifax’s main shopping area, Spring Garden Road, is 3 minutes on foot. If you’re looking for a hotel in the center, the Cambridge Suites is a good choice.

This Cambridge Suites is the best designed suite hotel I've ever seen so far as the rooms are concerned. Of course, the outstanding view on one side of Halifax Harbour is part of the pleasure. We had 2 suites, both the same. Each was a large 2 level, but set up in such a way that both the bedroom and the kitchette on the upper level had a full view from the living room windows. Such a clever design that we would love to stay in another hotel like this again. (this plan would make a terrific vacation cottage) for Cambridgesuites.
