As many have said, great location. Be ready to continuously walk hills. The staff is very helpful and were glad to help me with an early check in. Beware what direction your room faces for the next few months. Construction noise dominates one direction. The food at the dinner hour was much more than I expected. Its not meant to... More

Went with some friends for a night out in Halifax. The location is great but the room was definitely not worth the price. The water that was left in the fridge wasn't even included in the 399 dollar plus tax room. Also, if you have a larger vehicle they can't accommodate you and you have to park at the public... More

Friendly and very helpful staff really top this place. The hotel itself is average. Fairly small but well organized lobby. Breakfast was quite good but very busy most days although not unmanageable. Location is great -- close to restaurants and bars and not far at all from the Harbour. I will advise though that if your room is facing the... More

The hotel was very nice and the staff was terrific. I believe that I had one of the best rooms in the whole hotel the weekend I stayed there. Sadly though when I booked the hotel for that weekend I was told that I would have a Harbour view for the fireworks that were going on that weekend and I... More

The Marriott always delivers on a decent, clean room and they did again in this case. The room had a large sofa and a small kitchen and fridge. The breakfast was great and included in the price- many options of both hot and cold food. Our room was quiet for sleeping. The location to many local restaurants and attractions was... More

Located near the Citadel and eons of restaurants. This hotel has underground parking, beautiful rooms and lucky us... We were upgraded to a two bedroom suite. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. What I can't emphasis enough is how great the location is. It is right in the middle of all the places you want to be.

We stayed at the Residence Inn for one night in August and the location of the hotel put us right in the centre of all the action. We had a King Suite that was spacious and well-appointed. One issue I did run into is that my car (with Thule rack on top) was too high for their underground parking and... More

We had a nice stay at the Residence Inn Halifax Downtown. The staff was nice, and the location was great, with many restaurants steps away. There is construction going on right next to the hotel, but they usually started at 8 or 9am and stopped by 7 or 8pm. Our last night however, they were working on the construction site... More

This Residence Inn is in a perfect location for seeing Halifax. It is situated between the Citadel and the waterfront. The room was very clean and quiet. Complimentary breakfast was adequate. We stayed there the first and the last nights of our trip to Nova Scotia.

We absolutely loved the location of the hotel; a few short blocks from the boardwalk and in an area surrounded by bars and restaurants. We were there for two days and easily walked wherever we went. The daily breakfast was quite good as well. The hotel fell short of our expectations on two counts. The first is minor but irritating... More
