I have been staying on business at this hotel in Halifax at least once a month for more than a decade. Quite simply it is the ideal choice for both business and personal options. It's close to all my business meetings and appointments and surrounded by excellent dining and entertainment venues. The staff is the best in the province...and I... More

Every winter in January about 15 colleagues and I leave our homes in warm, sunny Florida for cold, snowy Halifax, NS with a large research aircraft to do satellite calibration and validation work out over the cold and dark North Atlantic ocean - a task that is not for the faint of heart. But then, we are Hurricane Hunters during... More

I really am not high maintenance, but I have stayed here a few times now on business and its just not doing it for me. First, for a residence type hotel, where you would expect more business folks to stay, there is no business center. There is one stale-dated computer in the lounge with printouts going to the reception office.... More

We stayed here in a one-bedroom suite for two nights in January, 2015. The service was generally good and the room acceptable but basic in amenities (note, though, lack of adequate heat or any heat control in the bedroom). However, the unit looked out onto a street corner with three or more local bars which continued their noisy street disruption... More

Thank you for your feedback Karen P. We do greatly regret the disturbances you experienced during your time with us from a couple of our surrounding neighbours. Sometimes, due to our location in the downtown core, with many restaurants and bars nearby, there can be exterior noise issues that are beyond the hotel's control. Our property does however have a...

Stayed here once before when the room smelled so bad they had to put an ozone machine in to try to get the smell out. This time the living area stunk of pizza and the bed just stunk like something had died. Complained,letf window open and all the fans on but didn't help. Even sprayed the bed with deodorant. So...

Central downtown location and everything you need is a close walk from the hotel. Friendly and welcoming staff and a clean modern hotel. Ive stayed at this property numerous times over the last few years and each time, it is a warm welcoming experience. The hotel is clean and tastefully decorated, rooms are suites and therefore spacious, 24 gym as... More

We booked this hotel for 4 nights in December so that the family could be together after my youngest daughter had specialist surgery in Halifax. The hotel staff upgraded us to a 2 bed/2bath unit which was totally unexpected but so appreciated as it really gave all the space we needed and it allow my daughter to heal in private.... More

We enjoy Residence Inns because it's nice to have the extra space and the kitchen facilities. Our room here was comfortable; a standard Residence Inn type of room. We had no real view, since the hotel is located on a steep hill and we were looking at the buildings on the other side of the street. Breakfast was pretty standard... More

I wasn't too impressed by the buffet breakfast, everything was cold when I went down at 7:30am and not too much selection. I did enjoy the waffle maker though! All of the staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were nice and comfortable. We had a great view of the New Years Eve fireworks. Overall, I was pleased with my... More
