Located right on the water in the Halifax, restaurant/Bar scene. Walk the harbour boardwalk, sit out , dine , drink. About a 200 yd walk next door to the Casino. Lots of indoor parking available in Hotel and Casino area. Nice modern lobby bar, fast elevators, friendly staff. Beds and numerous pillows were really comfortable and made for a great... More

I have stayed here 5 times and the first 4 times I recall as super excellent. This time all is super excellent except for one thing: The 'crap-rap' too-loud noise coming out from the ceiling speakers. It is not music, it is unnecessary loud noise. I had a meal in the Harbourstone Sea Grill & Pour House and I hurried-up... More

The lobby is stunning, the pool and spa area looked great! Rooms are clean, and inviting. Staff are friendly. We had a room that overlooked the harbour and it was perfect. Beds are comfortable.

This was my first time in Halifax, but have stayed at other Marriott hotels before. The doorman are great to deal with, very helpful with any questions about the area you might have. Check-in was okay, the girl at the Front Desk was not overly helpful or friendly (didn't mention anything about the pool or gym). Dropped my stuff in... More

I am pleased to hear you enjoyed the prime location of our hotel and many of its offerings. Disappointing though is that you did not experience really warm Maritime hospitality for which we are typically renowned. I am genuinely sorry, as helpful and engaging service so often marks the difference between a satisfactory experience and an outstanding one. It's also... More

My family of 16 came in last minute this week to come and stay in Halifax somewhere we didn't have to travel too much to experience the city.

This hotel was in the perfect location right beside the Historic Properties on the boardwalk. The location makes it very easy to walk almost everywhere you want. The service was excellent and fast when checking in and out. The parking was easy but a little expensive ($22 a day). The hotel gym was very clean and had plenty of cardio... More
