The Marriott Halifax is well located, fresh, very comfortable and a good value. But what really separates this hotel from others is the superb staff. In particular, Rob at the bell desk, was most helpful in making superb suggestions of what to see and and where to dine in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Price Edward Island. He good counsel made... More

This is my second time staying here. If anything, the hotel is even better than it was the last time! The rooms are great, every amenity you could ask for. The staff is so friendly and helpful, especially Rebecca at the front desk. She easily and nicely answered all my questions. And I wish I had gotten his name, someone... More

Well run hotel, location is excellent, fairly standard rooms for a Marriott, no issues at all. Was there for a conference, meeting food was good, and a bit different. At conference rates, good value. Had one meal in hotel, food was good, service slow but they apologised and brought free appertizers

Well, AAA/ Brewsters travel may have messed things up, but the Marriot made it right. We appreciate the service and honororing of an agreement that was not clear by Brewsters. Location excellent, service also excellent. Breakfast buffet also very good- the service more than the food, but omlette station was great. Cows ice cream and starbucks nearby or attached. Taxi...

The hotel is very nicely located on the historic Halifax waterfront and some rooms offer a view of the Harbour. I have stayed on a number of occasions and have only good things to say about the staff and the facility. The pool area is clean, well equipped and sizable. Room service was very quick, pleasant and tasty. My only... More

You can't beat the location of this hotel. It is on the boardwalk, right next to the historic properties. You can walk to just about anywhere you want to go in Halifax. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We only ate breakfast at the hotel, but there is a nice variety and also a buffet. The rooms were typical... More

The hotel and location is perfect for the true downtown experience of Halifax. The rooms are not worth the cost , clean but definitely not high end. The bathrooms are very small and little to no water pressure . For what we paid for the room we thought we would have at least a view of the harbour ,unfortunately it... More
