We stayed for almost a week, Walking distance to just about everything downtown and nearby the waterfront. Right on the water, right beside the Casino, exercise room and pool were accessible and clean, parking was paid, but handy underground.

The Marriot Halifax Hotel is located just by the Harbourfront in Halifax, right at the center of the most visited area of Halifax. In this sense location is just perfect. It is impossible to find a better place in Halifax. But coming back to the Hotel, the superlatives end here, As soon as you enter the Hotel, you realize you... More

Our first time in the newly renovated buffet area. What is missing from the original waterfront view, is made up by the incredible decor. The food choices were amazing and good selections of gluten free and meat free dishes. The omelet bar is always a favourite with our family. I cannot rave enough about Liz our server who put up...

A typical Marriot in style but comfortable rooms, great harbour view and quiet location. The staff was friendly and helpful and solved the unexpected problems with our booking very effectively. Location was perfect for our stay. Highly recommended if visiting Halifax.

Stayed here while attending the Scotch and Whiskey Show at the Casino last week. Very nice covered pedway that connects both, which is great for winter or nasty weather. The hotel is nicely decorated with a large lobby and open restaurant area. Rooms are a standard size (spacious) with comfortable bedding and clean. Staff is very pleasant and did their... More

I spent 5 nights in January at a conference here. The conference facilities were very good and suited the needs of participants very well. The restaurant made for a fun hub of activity for some late drinks after being out on the town for dinner and shows. Staff were always friendly and in good humour. The location - actually right...
