Now is your chance to try the posh new Muir Hotel on the Halifax, Nova Scotia waterfront in the new Queen’s Marque district. Book a suite package now until March 31 and get an upgrade to an executive suite + $100 in hotel credit and free parking. As a guest of the Muir when it opened late last year, I got a grand tour of every corner of this Halifax gem. The rooms dazzle with original, exquisitely handmade furniture, high tech design and harbour views from all but a few. With the vine Drift restaurant and BKS speakeasy, the best outfitted and most attractive gym/pool/sauna/spa in Eastern Canada and all the other shops, public art and amenities around the hotel, there’s more than enough within a city block for an entire weekend’s enjoyment and put that $100 credit to creative use like a cocktail in front of the fireplace at Drift. I recommend the crisp mushy peas as a starter and the hodge podge–usually a vegetable dish, but this one is loaded with seafood, too like lobster, haddock, mussels and scallops.
