Even though a bit dated, the location on the water and staff make this the best choice in Halifax. Try to get a room at the water end of the hotel which has a great view and is a bit larger than the normal rooms. Prices and parking are reasonable and it is great to stroll along the waterfront where... More

The location couldn't be more wonderful, and the underground parking lot is ample! I love the waterfront view, and I went on a walk along it every morning, discovering nice restaurants, sightseeing, and/or buying souvenirs. The room was okay, not something I'd expected. But the lounge, the breakfast, and the service were all beyond awesome. I'd still recommend it strongly... More

Clean rooms, good service. Good Marriott property, located in the heart of downtown. Close to restaurants and pubs. Were there during Canada Day celebrations, could see fireworks from the hotel. Starbucks in the lobby was an added perk.

Although the location of the hotel is priceless and lobby give you a real 5 star hotel feeling, but the reception cold welcome ( even as a Marriott Gold member) is a big let down at entrance. Room is really average and old heat and cooling system fan makes enough noise to make you crazy after few hours, its not... More

Hotel is located on the beautiful waterfront and close to many restaurants and shopping. Such a treat to have valet parking. We dined at the hotel restaurant for breakfast and it was delicious! The rooms are well appointed, spacious and very clean. The staff from parking attendants to front desk were very friendly and professional.

Great location downtown. Spacious clean rooms, great staff. Dont stay during the jazz fest tho unless your a fan. Music is very loud since the venues are actoss the street and our room was facing it. But, no complaints otherwise. Would stay again for sure

My husband, sister and her boyfriend stayed at this hotel for 1 night on Thursday December 18. I did get a good rate because I'm a travel agent so to me it was worth it but I don't think I would ever pay the full price to stay here. The front desk told us to go to the wrong elevators... More

Great location next to Historic Properties, nightlife, waterfront. Staff very helpful, attentive. Full marks for value. Had a spacious room with dining area at a very reasonable rate. Recommend visiting the "Lower Deck" next door for live music, "Press Gang" nearby for dinner, "Finer Diner" if you visit Peggy's Cove.

If you are planning on staying in Halifax or holding a convention in this wonderful town, this hotel must be in your considerations. Staff, from all departments, were friendly, the food was delicious - seriously, not one bad meal and our room was beautiful, clean and well looked after. I would definitely go back!!
