had a couple stays at two of the IHG properties in Nova Scotia Canada. Holiday Inn Truro - nice, clean property, sort of in a residential area, not right off the main Hwy. Didn't experience any perks really with Plat status. Hotel was 5,000 point via pointbreaks. Free parking, they even have 4 spaces at the front of the hotel marked with signs for the exculsive use of Plat members. Holiday Inn Halifax Harbourview - somewhat worn property but nice enough. had an award for 2 twin beds, was upgraded to harborview King. Property is 1/4 block from the MacDonald bridge on the Dartmouth side. Not too much w/in walking distance, a McD's, and a Vietnamese restaurant in the nearby strip mall. Property does have an outdoor pool, free parking. Plat was recognized and I received an upgraded room, and a coupon for my choice of: 2k PC points, $10 applied to any meal in the hotel restaurant, free appitizer in the hotel's restaurant. Even though my stay in Halifax was fine, for my next time in Halifax I'll probably choose the Four Points or Courtyard as they are right downtown close to the harborfront area where there are restaurants/pubs. While it was nice being able to have the door open to our patio to let fresh cool air in while we slept, there was a slight mechanical noise that may be a bother to some, at least the noise is constant (sounds like a pump or something). Property is ~30 min drive from airport. Holiday Inn Express Stellarton / New Glasgow - we didn't stay but passed right by this property on our way touring Cape Breton & the Cabot Trail. Property is right off of Hwy 104 making a nice stop somewhat close to the causeway.
