Our daughters gave my wife and I a night at the hotel as her birthday present in December. From the time we walked through the door, what a great time. It was right in the middle of Christmas Parties so there was a lot of excitement and noise coming out of some rooms when we arrived but everyone was respectful... More

We have a ritual and we spend every Christmas Eve here. We always ask for a poolside room and bring a bottle of bubbly with us. The Service is great and we are close to the Casino if need to give a small donation to the Government.

We've stayed here at least once a year for the past few years and always enjoy our stay. The check-in/check-out are perhaps the easiest I've ever had, partially due to the "on-line" option through the hotel's app. The rooms are comfortable, and usually have great views of either the city or the magnificent harbour. We've always had terrific service from... More

Stayed here in March 2014 when we had to fly to Halifax to pick up our new puppy. Hotel is gorgeous and staff were very friendly at check in. Food at the restaurant was AMAZING! Highly recommend. A little on the pricey side and the location wasn't the greatest if you are there for shopping but it worked for us... More

We had a decent stay but found the room to be on the small side with only a double bed and no mini fridge. The hotel was clean and well maintained it is in a great location on the waterfront. The last time we had stayed here a couple years ago we enjoyed the Fife and Drum pub but it... More

This place is definitely in a perfect location to bars and restaurants. Rooms are large and clean, beds are very comfortable. Staff is very nice. Food at the restaurant was excellent, both dinner and breakfast.

Room was ok....beds really small not queen. Restaurant beautiful but has mice problem. One ran by us during dessert one evening. Yikes! Great location. Overpriced parking for car. Thought our experience would be more wow factor but not so.

I'm sorry to hear your experience was a disappointment. Our guestrooms offer either king beds or doubles, but you are correct, we do not have queen size beds. I am pleased that you found the restaurant attractive and want to reassure you that we partner with a national pest control company to ensure we are protected against pests and insects.... More

We booked through Priceline and received a basic room on the 2nd floor overlooking the historic bar district. Our first surprise was the lack of a mini fridge in the room but one was delivered after contacting the front desk. In the morning we were again surprised by only having one paper coffee cup so we had to find the... More

Purchased a New Years Eve dinner and room package that will be the first and last for this Marriott. The 3 course dinner was awesome in service and taste from beginning to end .

Thank you for choosing to spend New Year's Eve with us. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our offerings in the Harbourstone. Clearly we did not meet your expectations regarding your guestroom. I would like to address the disconnect between what you saw advertised and what was delivered and would welcome an opportunity to speak with you. More

This is a lovely hotel situated on the waterfront. The rooms are spacious and have no complaints with regard to helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. I was staying here for a business trip and it was unfortunate that the excellent buffet breakfast (provided on a weekend) was not available during week days. There is the option to use the... More
