Discover What Makes the Barrington Hotel Different

The Barrington Hotel, a 200-room hotel, opened its doors for business on March 25, 1980.

Ideally situated in the centre of downtown Halifax and the historic waterfront, the hotel is a reconstruction of six originals buildings built in the mid-19th century in the Italianate style.  The west façade of the building was meticulously dismantled, piece by piece, and workers numbered and catalogued for reassembly each of the 4,000 stone blocks.  The event space continues the historic theme of the hotel, individually being named after prominent businessmen on Granville Street during the latter part of the 19th century.

The Barrington Hotel is part of Barrington Place and connects with Scotia Square, CIBC Tower, Purdy’s Wharf and Casino Nova Scotia by the downtown pedway link.  Within a five-block radius there are more than 200 shops and some of the finest dining establishments in Halifax; for sports and entertainment the Scotiabank Centre is a block away and a short walk will find you at the Halifax Convention Centre.

The Barrington Hotel reflects the hospitality for which Haligonian’s are justly known.
