Built low to match the neighboring ironstone buildings, this waterfront hotel is convenient to the Historic Properties and the boardwalk. Though its external appearance is unlike others in the chain, the style inside is consistent with the brand, and its public areas have recently been upgraded. Rooms in all categories have an urban-chic look, plus extras such as pillow-top mattresses and rain-forest showerheads. There's a spa on-site, and a five-minute stroll through
an indoor walkway takes you to Halifax's casino.
