We stayed for two nights at the very end of June. We were warmly welcomed and allowed to check in early. The room was very spacious and comfortable, with a fine view of Halifax Harbor. Halifax is a nice city, and this hotel is located in the heart of the city, just five blocks up the hill from the waterfront.... More

The Residence Inn is a great hotel for extended stay, couples and/or families. Includes complimentary breakfast. It basically has the setup of a bachelor apartment - fridge, stove, microwave and all utensils for cooking - from pots and pans to plates, cups and glasses and cutlery. Also has a living room area, with fold out couch. Great location! Walking distance... More

One night stay for a weekend getaway - excellent location for walking to all the downtown restaurants and shops plus neptune theatre. Circled the block a couple times and found an open parking meter to park at for the night. Staff were very nice, room was huge, clean and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was included and really good. Room... More

The location of this hotel is the biggest draw: less than 10 minutes walking from the waterfront, the Citadel, the Public Gardens, Scotiabank Centre, ferry ports, etc. You are also very close to a lot of terrific dining options. Across the street and next door are Maxwell's Plum and The Stubborn Goat, both of which have great drink selections. Around... More

I had a nice three-night stay here over the Victoria Day long weekend (although I did not know of this holiday at the time of booking). I used Marriott Rewards points for the stay. Hotel is located in downtown Halifax, just down the hill from the Citadel Fortress. I enjoyed being able to walk to many of the attractions in... More

Great place to stay with family or friends. Front desk staff consistently friendly and helpful. Even borrow an umbrella if you're cought in the rain! Located right in the heart of things, one block from Citadel, surrounded by night spots and restos. Pleasant walk to waterfront

I stayed here with my family while visiting downtown Halifax. The room was very quiet, comfortable and large. Beds were cozy and good for sleeping. The free wifi worked well. All in room cooking amenities were available and of good quality. With that said, we chose to eat at one of the nearby restaraunts and found many options to choose... More

Built in 2004, this Residence Inn is clean and appears to be recently remodeled. I read in some of the previous reviews about the street and bar noise. Luckily, we arrived Sunday afternoon and the noise was minimal. The piped music from the bar across the street turned off its music about 5pm and the area was peaceful. The next... More

We chose this hotel again as we were using points.. We love this location, close to restaurants and bars, pubs. The rooms are big and clean. The continental breakfast is one of the best we've had. Loved the variety offered!! The front desk staff is always so nice and attentive. Loved that the parking was assigned in the parking garage.... More
