HALIFAX — AFAR magazine has revealed its list of the world’s best new hotels of 2023, which includes Muir hotel, located on the edge of the Halifax Waterfront.
Since opening in December 2021, Muir has welcomed travellers to a refined, distinctly Nova-Scotian experience inspired by the region’s rich cultural history, raw and physical beauty and enduring character.
“Muir tells the story of who we are from the expression of place found throughout Muir’s art and design to cuisine inspired by our land, people, and history, to our elevated East Coast hospitality and service,” says Eugénie Jason, general manager, Muir. “It means a great deal to be selected as one of AFAR‘s best new hotels for 2023. It allows us to extend an invitation to travellers from around the world interested in forging an authentic connection with our region.”
“AFAR‘s audience is the most travelled and most conscientious in travel media,” says Greg Sullivan, co-founder and CEO of AFAR. “They are also the trendsetters, foreshadowing what average travellers will be doing in five years. This year’s Stay List is exceptional and indicates to me a bright future in travel. These new hotels are going to extraordinary lengths to provide great traveller experiences, support the local communities and protect the environment.”
The 15 properties were selected and vetted by AFAR‘s expert network of editors, writers, and travel advisors. Hotels were selected based on location, design, service, and how they benefit the community and connect guests with the local landscape.
