1. The Halliburton
This little escape set in three converted heritage townhouses is located in the heart of Halifax’s downtown area. It’s a true boutique hotel, with just 29 rooms, each one individually decorated; our favourites are the rooms with wood-burning fireplaces in winter, but for summer trips we prefer the ones with a balcony overlooking the colourful garden courtyard. The on-site Stories Restaurant serves inventive ‘East Coast fusion’ food to residents and locals. A cosy and classy choice.
