I can't compliment this hotel enough. The staff is for the most part young, but all were cheerful and very competent and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely appointed. And the location is right on the river walk close to the ferry terminal all the other points of interest. Here's one tip...the in room coffee maker is in... More

Stayed here for one night on business. Unfortunatley did not stay long enough to really appreciate the location, but what I did notice was that is was a pretty standard Marriott. Rooms were clean, but a little dated. The service was very good. The front desk staff were very friendly and accomodating. Was close to many places to eat downtown.... More

Stayed at this hotel for a conference in mid-November for two nights. Nice hotel - easy booking and smooth check-in (late arrival). Room was nicely appointed and was everything I needed (including free wifi). Had room service for dinner, delivered by very polite young man. Great location - I'm sure it would be really lovely in the summer. Skip the... More

We stayed in late October, good size rooms, clean and well appointed as expected. Beds on the hard side for me, comfy for my wife. Only 5 stories and a few minutes covered walk to casino. Food is restaurant/bar was good, not formal with burgers, more complex dishes and a couple of nice salads. Our room had a inice view... More

Room was a bit musty on arrival so they put in an ionizer when we went out but not sure it helped much. Found a beer cap and earing on floor and took to front desk and they apologized. Extended stay twice but they seemed to not tell house keeping so they didn't clean our room one day and were... More

My wife and I were in Halifax with a group of friends attending a wedding. We all decided to stay at the Marriott so we could all be together.The clerk that checked us in gave us a terrible interior room.

The Marriott Harbourfront Hotel was what you expect of any Marriott hotel. Solid comfort and luxury if not a whole lot of character. Although we were only on the 4th floor, our room still had a fairly good view of the water and harbourfront area. Easy walking distance to downtown stores, Pier 21, museum and other attractions. Did not avail... More

This hotel is by far the best location in the downtown core. However, for the price you would expect a little more. More than two towels and a tub plug that works would be nice. The rooms are dim and there is no bathroom fan for the steam factor. Service is great and the rooms are very clean. I would... More
