Stayed here only for one night on Jan11th. Very clean and nice sized room, actually the configuration of the room is not your typical hotel room which is a bonus. Super friendly staff at reception. The breakfast included is also worth it and enjoy the evening social. Don't hesitate to book!

My boyfriend and I travel as a couple on a regular basis and have stayed at this location 6-7 times in the past three months. We always have a friendly welcome and now the desk knows us by name. The rooms are spacious and the fact that you have a kitchen is a bonus. We sometimes have friends stay with... More

I got a great deal on a bid from Priceline and it definitely paid off. This place was so very clean and comfortable and quiet. I felt very much the comforts of home during my stay here and would stay again without a second thought. I can't say much about the amenities as I had no need for them during... More

Stayed here for two nights. We were concerned when we checked in as our window looked out on a construction site. Front desk said they were unable to move us anywhere but across from the bar across the street. Was not the quietest but was acceptable. Beds very comfortable, room of a decent size. Handy for restaurants and attractions.

The hotel still remains to be a very nice place to stay in downtown Halifax. Of note, the whirlpool has been removed in recent years... I don't think I've stayed there since 2009 so it may be old news. Parking is underground and quite safe. There are a number of tight spots. While at the hotel I needed a quiet... More

This lodging is so conveniently located to almost everything central in the city. Loads of good restaurants close by. We saw a Shakespeare play in the theater in the next block. The hotel room was comfortable, clean, and quiet. The desk staff personnel were extremely helpful and friendly. The complimentary hot breakfast was excellent.

Enjoyed my 2 nights here, the room was very comfortable and quiet. Yes there is construction across the street but I never heard any noise. The front desk staff was extremely professional , was there during a big rain storm, they went out and bought their guests umbrellas to use. The underground garage parking is $19 a day but parking...

Wanted two twin beds but ended up with a double and pull out couch, not so good for a man of close to 80 yrs. old to be doing. Clean and quiet. No complaints Only problem was having to get maintenance to open the door from underground parking to the hotel.

Short walking distance to all major Halifax tourist attractions, also close handy to train station, supermarkets, post office etc ( all under 10min walk ). Helpful and friendly staff, great breakfast buffet, very clean and well kept. Can get a bit rowdy on Friday/Saturday nights at some of the local watering holes so would go for a higher floor room...

Cannot say enough!! The staff were wonderful. Our one bedroom suite was great. The downtown location was great. It was easy to get to the harbour and all of the museums etc. We were placed on the fifth floor with an ocean view as promised during the pre booking. We enjoyed the free buffet breakfast each morning. We would certainly... More
