The entire staff contributed to a delightful stay. The front desk staff easily converted Marriott rewards into a large and comfortable corner room with a view of the harbor. The service in the dining room was very attentive and informative, introducing us to delicious regional specialties and wines. The pool and locker area were spotless and larger than we normally...

I loved the decor and the beds also the location but that's where it ends! This was booked for a hospital visit thus why we used priceline to get the better rate! There are no reasonable downtown healthcare rates!

Walking into our room, I felt like we came to grandma's house. It felt cozy but all a little bit old and dowry. The first room we were given had such a small window that we thought we were in prison. So we asked to switch rooms, finally getting a corner room where one window faced the waterfront while the... More

Hotel location is perfect for business or leisure stay. Rooms are very comfortable. However, I have visited this hotel several times and I was unlucky to experience really poor customer service. The receptionist never looked at me while completing my check in. She seemed surprised that I wanted to stay in the king room and was focused on letting me... More

Marriot Harbourfront is extremely well situated on the suprisingly lively waterfront. The side entrance leads right to Cows Creamery,and the bars and eateries of the historic district. Many attractions and places to spend your time are within walking distance. The hotelis connected to the Halifax Pedway System which means its also connected to the Casino. It is easily accessible by... More

This location can't be beat. Located right on the waterfront. Provides easy access to all the waterfront activities.. i.e. boardwalk, short walk to Farmers Market, Pier 21, and the historic downtown, i.e. Citadel, and the beautiful gardens nearby "Public Gardens"). Friendly staff, clean, very comfy bed ... the usual Marriott benefits and style. Worth the price to stay in this... More

The location here is ideal and almost everything is within walking distance of the hotel. And it is super nice to be able to step out of the hotel and be on the boardwalk outside. We arrived on Canada Day, didn't have to worry about parking and had a wonderful view of the fireworks. The hotel also has a nice... More

Our first visit to this wonderful hotel. The hospitality was outstanding, especially Katherine in the concierge room. She couldn't do enough for us & the other guests as well. Rooms were outstanding along with the housekeeping. The young lads that brought up/ down our luggage in those beautiful kilts were delightful too! We now know why our son always stays... More

As with most big city Marriotts my family and I have stayed at, the rooms were clean, well-maintained and adequate in size. Interestingly, there was more drawer space available to place one's clothes than higher priced hotels such as the Four Seasons Boston or the Savoy in London. The staff at the front desk was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The... More

Ideal location on the waterfront. It's a big modern hotel which to me felt a little too big and impersonal.The room was ok but was a bit surprised that the beds were doubles and not queens. There is a coffee maker in the room but no cups to drink it out of. (Room service brought some). We had dinner and... More
