Assigned parking spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Upon arrival, be sure to ask if a space is vacant, obtain a parking pass and clearly display it on the dash of your car. Return the pass before you leave. If all spaces are occupied, your name can be put on a waiting list.
As an alternative, there is paid parking available close to the Lodge. Contact Imperial Parking at 902-452-0362 or Victoria General (VG) at 902-473-2143 for more information.
If you have not brought your own vehicle, local cab companies and metro transit are available. Two bus stops are located right outside the Lodge. A list of town shuttle services are available on request.
The Lodge does not offer medical services, nursing services or the provision of medication. While in Halifax, your medical care should be coordinated under the supervision of your physician. If emergency medical treatment is required, you should seek help at the Emergency Department of the QEII Health Sciences Centre, located at the Halifax Infirmary site.
Newspapers, stamps, laundry detergent and fabric softener can be purchased at the reception desk.
