Ive stayed at many Holday Inns and absolutely angered by the lack of service at this hotel. Front desk rarely picks up the phone and you have to down to speak to someone. Got the executive floor and ice machine isnt even on the 7th floor. Instead they just have an oversized pepsi machine. Staff is pleasant but clueless on... More

I had initially booked a room in this hotel assuming that it was located on the Halifax harbourfront. Apprehension set in when I discovered my mistake. Upon our arrival at this hotel, we were greeted by Drew, a very pleasant and professional front desk clerk. We requested an upper floor, harbour view room. The room was clean, quiet, had a... More

If people are talking in the hallway you will hear it easily. This hotel has old doors that are not soundproof. The place is dated. Restaurant service was not good, Maybe they were overwhelmed. I cleaned my own table and sat down for breakfast buffet. The pool looked nice but the hotel needs a major renovation.

When our flight to St. John's was canceled, the airline provided us with accommodation at this property. The foyer of the hotel was pleasant as was the restaurant. However, the hotel room itself was quite dated.

Fantastic hotel! Great location - excellent excellent restaurant! The menu is that of a very highly rated restaurant and the food is fresh! The bar is also very good. The staff was very helpful - if there is a negative I would say it is paid parking in a huge parking lot that is almost always empty.

Smaller sized rooms (lots of furniture but no where to move). Extremely short cord on blow dryer (I assume to deter theft). I stand 5'4" and had to squat to dry my hair as while standing the blow dryer only came to my neck. Rooms were clean. Bed comfortable. Poor signage outside for driveway and lobby/ check in area.

This hotel was clean and comfy. I had issues with front desk locking me out of my room saying I hadn't paid when I did. The windows in the room don't open, because there are no opening windows, which makes for a very stuffy environment. I was billed 16.00 for a Movie I had tried to purchase but before the... More

The property is in fairly good condition, but is not the showcase it used to be. Our room was clean and well kept up and every employee we met was quite pleasant. We had an upper floor room with a view of the harbour which was pleasant.
