My parents stayed at the Marriott Harbourfront hotel during the Thanksgiving weekend last year after my partner and I booked it for them. The room was beautiful and comfortable and definitely a relaxing spot after having been on the road for 16+ hours. It was also in an ideal location as we live at the top of Duke street and... More

I would highly recommend this hotel. The only thing was the first night I was here a homeless man walked around the restaurant asking for money, came up to my table and when I said I didn't have money to give he asked for my french fries. I gave him the fries and he then he went to the other... More

I rarely write reviews. I especially hate writing poor reviews. But while staying here mid April, I was in the restaurant trying to enjoy a quiet evening. Some person decided to bring in their dog (which I assumed must have been a service dog, despite it not having any sort of "markings" to identify it as such) and sit it... More

Thank you very much for your feedback on Tripadvisor in regards to your experience at the harbourstone seagrill and pourhouse. You are correct that in Nova Scotia, regulations only allow service dogs in food and beverage establishments. In this particular instance we neglected to follow through and for that we apologize. It is feedback like yours that allows us to... More

Convenient harborfront location, walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. Attended a conference so the room rate was reasonable. The room was comfortable but a good distance from the elevators. The room was clean and well appointed with a refrigerator and safe. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. The food at the conference was pretty good and... More

I stayed for four nights in April 2015 for a conference. I used mobile check-in once my plane had landed, making my check-in process as quickly as simply saying my name and walking to my room with my key.

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.

I stayed at this hotel for a week, on business, in March 2015 (between storms). Overall, the hotel was modern, stylish, very conveniently located and the bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever encountered. The cost was marginally more than other hotels in the area but the extra $20.00 or so per night was well worth it! The... More
