The Sandman Signature Hotel & Suites is located on Wilkinson Avenue next to the Dartmouth Crossing shopping centre. Dartmouth is Halifax’s twin city and part of the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The new hotel is Sandman’s second in Nova Scotia and its first in the province bearing the Signature banner. The property contains 212 guest rooms and suites with an indoor pool and slides, hot tub, fitness centre and Denny’s restaurant. The development also includes 6,000 square feet of meeting-room space.
