Waterford Suites



The name “Waterford” is translated to water crossing.  Halifax Harbour is famous for trade and navy crossings.  The location also could have been a prefect fortress, as Halifax was originally riddled with fortresses around the edges of the peninsula the Citadel was the main fort protecting the port. Waterford Suites is located one block from Halifax Harbour’s edge at an elevation of approximately 45’ above sea level. The rooftop post has a perfect view of the mouth of the Harbour, the historic George’s Island and McNab’s Island.

The suite names are actually named after various islands that are in the Halifax Harbour.  We thought this would be appropriate as over 2/3s of the building has views of the Harbour.
