Hotel Access and Parking during Cogswell District Project (As of June 17)

An exciting redevelopment of the downtown cores North End has temporarily changed the hotel’s main entrance for those arriving and visiting via vehicle. If you are arriving via vehicle at check-in or throughout your stay and need to park for up to 20 minutes, you will need to enter on Granville level. It is about a 120 (400 feet) meter walk to the Granville Entrance, and you can access the lobby via elevator or stairs.

We strongly encourage guests parking overnight to park prior to checking in as the closest parkade is an additional 150 to 200 metre walk (500 – 750 feet depending where you park) to return to the hotel.

If you are not arriving via vehicle, the existing sidewalk entrance at 1875 Barrington Street is available for foot traffic only.

We understand that this information may be confusing and should we be able to assist at any point, please reach out to us at (902) 429-7410 extension 5 and an onsite Front Desk team member will be happy to help.

Scotia Square Parkade and hotel access from parkade (Vehicles 179CM / 5'11" and under)

The closest parkade is the Scotia Square parkade, located at 1900 Albemarle Street, Halifax, NS, B3J 3L9. Their parking cost is based on an hourly system of $4.50 per hour, with a daily maximum of $26 + HST on Monday to Thursdays, and $24 + HST Friday to Sunday. The ticket you take can be brought to the front desk and for the same cost ($26 + HST Mon-Thu, or $24 + HST Fri-Sun) your ticket be validated to give you unlimited in and out privileges in a 24 hour period. This can only be coded at the Front Desk as by default the parking gates will charge you on an hourly basis/daily maximum every entry or exit.

Vehicles 179CM (5 Foot, 11 Inches) and under, can enter in the first entrance on Albemarle Street (Green Entrance). See below for oversize.

After parking, take the elevators to level P3, turn right and follow the indoor walkway (To Barrington Hotel / Purdy’s Wharf). You will pass a Tim Hortons, go up a small set of stairs/ramp, then cross an indoor bridge where you come to an escalator. Immediately to the right of the escalators is an elevator (Level G, turn right). If you use the escalators, at the bottom, make a left hand U turn and follow the long hallway (walking past the RBC ATM) until you reach the lobby entrance (right hand side, glass doors).


Vehicles Over 180CM / 6 Feet

If your vehicle is over 180CM / 6’0”, there are a limited number of spaces (approximately 70) available in the North Parkade’s entrance (the last entrance on Albemarle Street) and only on level P3 (entrance you enter on). You then take the elevators to P1, cross through the food court, and turn left at Tim Hortons (will match photo view above). Then follow the walking instructions above.

Temporary hotel access parking

Temporary parking is available (20 minutes or less) to access the lobby, though we advise that you follow instructions for the Scotia Square Parkade prior to checking in.

Follow to 1919 Upper Water Street and make a right onto onto a concrete/gravel road that connects with an asphalt road. Park directly next to the Barrington Place receiving bay. Using the walkway on the left, follow along the brick street (Granville) until you reach the Granville entrance (past the Goodlife Fitness). Through these doors you can either access the lobby via the staircase or use the intercom system to be given access to the meeting room area (glass doors) elevators.
