The historic Inn on the Lake

The historic Inn on the Lake

There are many accommodation options near Halifax’s Stanfield International Airport, for travellers passing through at unusual hours.

The Inn on the Lake is easily one of the most elegant options but it’s a few minutes away by car.

If being close is your highest priority, then there are 3 hotels that practically sit on airport property. All of them offer free shuttle transport to and from the airport, free high-speed internet and swimming pools.

The Quality Inn is the nearest, just 1.5km from the airport. It’s also the oldest but still well maintained and its age means it’s often the cheapest. You’ll find a pool and sauna here and free parking as well. (Address: 60 Sky Boulevard, Phone: 1-902-873-3000 direct or 1-877-424-6423 to reserve, Website: Quality Inn Halifax Airport)

The Holiday Inn Express is the next nearest, about 4km away with a mineral pool and a business centre. It gets good reviews for cleanliness and the modern rooms. There’s no restaurant but the hotel has an arrangement for delivery from nearby businesses. (Address: 180 Pratt & Whitney Drive Phone: 1-877-643-4614 Website: Holiday Inn Express Airport Hotel)

The Hilton Garden Inn is just next door to the Holiday Inn and is also newly built. It has an in-house restaurant and rooms include microwaves and fridges. Travellers rave about its comfortable beds.

Aside from the airport hotels, there are more atmospheric options, if you don’t mind a 10-minute drive and have your own transportation or can afford a taxi to the airport.

The historic Inn on the Lake, set on Lake Thomas, has been catering to stylish travellers for over 30 years. There’s a great restaurant and luxurious suites with extras like whirlpool baths and they also have a complimentary airport shuttle that runs between 5am and midnight. (Address: 3009 Hwy 2, Fall River Phone: 1-800-463-6465 Website: Inn on the Lake)
