The hotel is really well located at the end of the waterfront. There are a few restaurants just outside the side door of the hotel as well as a great ice-cream place. The casino is not far either. The hotel itself is very big and the room was comfortable the bud was very soft and the pillows as well the... More

Stayed here in August 2014 with Caravan Tours. Great choice for Caravan as well as its clients. Outstanding breakfast. Great downtown hotel. If the occasion arose, we would definitely stay here again. telafella

In addition to a fine hotel with lovely amenities, you find yourself right on Halifax's boardwalk. The Maritime Museum is nearby on the boardwalk as are bistros, restaurants and shops. The view is to die for.

I liked this hotel and location from the very beginning as it is walking distance to just about everything we wanted to see. The beds were kind of small (full size) for a family of four but it's all good. Plenty of plug sockets for all the electronics that need to be charged but no refrigerator or microwave. The shower...

We stayed here on the last 2 days of a group bus tour of the Maritimes. We were on the 2nd floor & my only complaint about the room was that the windows looked out on the glass-enclosed passageway that connected to the convention center, so whenever our draperies were open, we lacked privacy. Other than that, the hotel was... More

This is a large hotel, right on the waterfront and beside the Historic district. Staff are extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. Rooms well furnished, spacious and very well maintained. My only quibble is that their restaurant in the lobby area has the look and feel of a space in an airport - not good ambiance at all, and closed off... More

I am having a hard time thinking of a single bad thing to say about this hotel. I used priceline to bid and got a great deal in August for a Wednesday and Thursday stay. The hotel is clean, free Wifi, and there's a Starbucks inside. The only negative is that the front-desk staff had trouble enabling our keys for... More

Clean, comfortable, convenient, the pool is a nice perk if you have kids and the staff was helpful and good natured. The waterfront itself had a ton to do and I never even got in my car once I arrived, but it was not a bargain by any stretch.

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. The hotel's location and amenties are certainly selling points for the property. Hotel rates do go up in the summer months throughout the downtown. Hopefully you may return and stay in our off season where there some packages and rates that would appeal. More

The hotel was clean, good service, good breakfast. Was in for business, so as a business traveler, I was completely satisfied. The best part, though, was waking up at 6 am and going onto the patio to watch the sunrise. Worth every penny staying there to see such a wonder.

We would have to agree with you that this is a beautiful city, and our location directly on the harbour is an ideal place to watch the sun rise. Thanks so much for this review, we look forward to having you stay with us again! More

This is a routine full service hotel; it is not exceptional. The physical facilities are in good shape; however, the staff seems to believe that friendliness is a substitute for efficiency. I endured a very long wait at check-in and breakfast service was slow apparently due to lack of staff, which was odd since the hotel was full and they... More
