When we are away from home for a few or several days and want the option of being able to prepare our own healthy meals, this hotel is for us. It is close to where our meetings are held, is convenient to get to & from and I really like the underground parking.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel during an anniversary weekend trip in October. Our room was spacious, with a full kitchen and living area. The room was immaculate, and they even left us a little gift basket with best wishes for our anniversary - nice touch! Our room was also obviously upgraded, to a harbor view room -... More

If you want to be in the heart of the city, pick this hotel. The one bedroom is a great size with a well equipped kitchen and small, but suitable living room. The breakfast was better than average...full points and included with the room price. The check in parking is a disappointment, but worry a visit.

The room and kitchen were both quite nice, and the front desk staff extremely helpful. The kitchen staff were also very good about identifying the exact ingredients in the breakfast items for us as we have special dietary requirements. We found the parking to be quite expensive and so did not take it, but parking is difficult to find on... More

We stayed at the Residence inn for a week and the stay was consistently wonderful. The staff were always extremely helpful and friendly. After the first night in a room next to a noisy street corner the staff generously switched our room to a more quiet location. The rooms were huge and comfy. The free breakfast was always tasty and... More

The rooms are large with a kitchenette. Very clean and up to date. The complementary breakfast was adequate, but we dont expect it free in Canada, unlike most hotels in USA. Parking underground is very tight. The staff were very friendly.

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
