Halifax’s historical Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites has officially unveiled its renovated guestrooms and event spaces.
The multi-million dollar refresh was conducted Design360 led by Keri Koch. The property’s owner, Mani Suissa, president and CEO of Universal Realty Group, challenged the Design360 team to secure the hotel’s future while retaining its Art Deco past.
All 12,500 square feet of event space—ballrooms, meeting rooms and corporate boardrooms—was totally restored. Highlights include new hand-crafted ceiling moldings; marble borders around wool carpeting; and a new grand piano.
The hotel’s 262 guestrooms were also completely remodeled with new modern flooring, plush seating, custom-made furnishings and a serene colour palette. Additional updates include premium linens, 55″ flat-screen televisions, work desks equipped with charging stations, and Nespresso coffee makers.
The Lord Nelson, which is located overlooking the downtown Halifax Public Gardens, has played—and continues to play—a significant role in the city’s social and cultural scene. Opened in October 1928, it has hosted meetings and special occasion gatherings for nearly 90 years.
