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

We stayed Friday and Saturday nights and had a wonderful stay. Beautiful ,clean,quiet room on the fourth floor. The full breakfast included is a saving and quite delicious. When I asked for parking the counter person said that it's full. Although there was a space called the cubby. Slightly tight but no cars beside me to bump doors. Thank you... More

This hotel has a great location, being a short walk from the Halifax waterfront and many great restaurants. But beware one side of the hotel is flanked by bars and another is across the road from a major construction site - up late or up early depending on your room location. Great buffet breakfast will also speed you on your... More

Thank you for your feedback Ryan A. We are glad that you appreciated your suite and the hotel during your stay here. One of your comments was the streets can be loud at times. Sometimes, due to our proximity to the downtown core, with many restaurants and bars nearby, there can be exterior noise issues that are beyond the hotel's... More

We really enjoyed the big room with kitchen and every thing. Nice bathroom. Parkinggarage in the house. Nice breakfast (but often you had to stand in line, for the waffles, which everyone seems to love).

We happened to stay a night at this hotel by accident, it was fantastic. The room is a suite with a beautiful kitchen, living area/bedroom and bath. Our large windows opened so you could have fresh air in your room and listen to the sounds of the city. There are many fantastic restaurants and bars all around you. The free... More

Typical of Marriott Residence hotels, this one is a clean, comfort-filled room. Full kitchen to cook up what you like should you like. "Free Breakfast" again is typical of the type offered by many such hotels. Waffle-Maker, muffins, fluffy yellow stuff that they call eggs (?), some fresh cut fruit and types of sausage. The staff were "as usual", amazingly... More

Our suite was spacious and clean. The hotel location was perfect. The breakfast was good with a few hiccups on our first morning when the staff appeared disorganized. Avoid the coffee. However, when we asked for kitchen utensils for our suite on 2 occasions, there was someone at our door within a few minutes. Impressive! On the noise issue, we... More

The Residence Inn by Marriott Downtown Halifax more than met our expectations. Every staff member we met was happy to answer our questions and accommodate our requests.  The lobby and common areas and our room were clean, comfortable and well-maintained.  There were many extras that we didn’t expect.  The breakfast that was included had hot items and varied from day...
