Very much enjoyed my stay at the Residence Inn Halifax Downtown. Ideal location for attending any events at the Metro Center (3 minute walk) or visiting downtown. Staff was friendly and courteous. The continental breakfast was excellent. They had good coffee too.

Only stayed for one night, but will now pick this as my preferred hotel for Halifax. My room was on the "ground" floor, but because of the hilly streets, it was actually one floor above the street. It would make it great as a fully accessible place to stay. I was surprised to see a review that said it seemed... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Residence Inn Downtown. Our room was a little dated and we had a couple problems. We also had an issue with the noise from the construction next door. We talked to the front desk in the morning and we were immediately moved to a quieter and bigger room on the top floor. It was... More

It was a pity that in a hotel with such an excellent staff that the rooms were much in need of renovation. The furniture coverings looked like they had reached the point that no matter how attentive the cleaning, and they were clean, replacement was required. It was the same for the furniture in the breakfast room. In the hallways... More

Stayed for a week in September, room fine- very large didn't even use half of it. Good location, a lot of nice restaurants near by. One downfall was noise from street, even on fifth floor you can still clearly hear the street noise, woken in the early hours from nearby pubs, bin lorries and throughout the day the construction site...

Thank you Louise M. for your comments. We are very happy to hear that our suites met and even surpassed your needs during your recent stay with us here in Halifax. We do, however, sincerely regret the disturbances that you had mentioned. Our downtown location in Halifax's growing Entertainment District can mean extra street activity, both from our neighbouring businesses... More

Located most conveniently in downtown Halifax, this Marriott Residence Inn delivers everything we've grown to expect - clean rooms with room to spread out (one bedroom suite) and an average breakfast. What set this Inn apart was the staff - desk clerks were extremely competent, helpful, and very patient with our touristy questions. It was the staff that made our... More

We spend six nights at this Residence Inn and were very impressed with it. We had a large, extremely comfortable one-room suite which included a kitchen and a living room area. It was very tastefully decorated with a red and white theme in the main area and a beige and red theme in the bathroom area. After reading the Tripadvisors'... More

Staying in a room with one queen bed and a pull out. Our two teenage daughters stayed as well. Had a nice kitchenette, bathroom and t.v. We all ate at the breakfast buffet we were all very satisfied. It is centrally located and a great place to stay!

Located right in the center of downtown and half way between the Citadel and the waterfront. Everything is within walking distance! Many restaurants near by and more reasonably priced than those on the waterfront. As always, Residence Inns are great places for families on vacation. Large suites, we had a 2 bedroon, fresh hot breakfast and cookies in the lobby!... More
