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...

My husband, 11 month old son, and I spent 4 nights at this hotel and I am so happy we did. The rooms were large, clean, and had all the comforts of home. This helped so much as we were travelling with a baby. Breakfast was included and was always delicious. The hotel had a laundry facility which made life... More

Apparently there are quite a few bars in Halifax. Fun, loud, and lively bars, and many of them surround this hotel. It is a quiet oasis, offering a top notch breakfast and clean comfortable rooms. Easy walking distance to said bars, the waterfront, and the citadel. The pier 21 immigration museum was only a 15 minute walk. Enjoy a beer... More

We just finished our second week+ long stay at the Downtown Residence Inn and were, again, pleased and satisfied with our choice. Be clear: This is not a luxury spa type hotel. That said it is solid, respectable, middle of the road, value for money accommodation: Everything anyone could want for an extended stay in downtown Halifax, whether one is... More

This hotel is in a great location. Pretty much walking distance to anything in the downtown area....resturants, pubs, bars, waterfront etc. Was very clean, modern and up to par with what I expect when staying at a Marriott location. Booked this hotel through a 3rd party website. I had requested an upper floor room with a King bed. Upon arriving... More

We arrived in the early morning because we wanted to be off the roads before Hurricane Arthur got any stronger. We were greeted cheerfully and the deskclerk found us a clean, ready-to-go room for much less than our original reserved suite. He had a super pleasant woman meet us in the parking garage with a luggage roller. The breakfasts were... More

My wife and I recently spent a day here while on vacation in Canada. We found the usual fantastic quality of room, facilities and service one would expect from a Marriott property. The location is excellent, despite nearby construction. Just be ready for some steep hills if you choose to walk to the Harbor area. There is also roof access... More

We moved here from the wharf to this hotel near the Citadel, Public Garden and various other areas of interest without having to climb the steep hill. Room was nice and staff was very helpful. Walking distance for us old folks to lots of areas. Metro Center close by for Tattoo show. Local foods here also on same street or... More

I recently stayed here with my wife for a two week holiday in Halifax. I know the city extremely well and chose this hotel for the location, which is hard to beat. Very central for the heart of downtown, with a vast array of bars and restaurants within short walking distance of the front door. The suite we chose, with... More

Location is close to pubs and restaurants so night time could be a bit noisy on weekends. We got the same Marriott hospitality and cleanliness as what an Elite rewards member would expect. Breakfast is free and very good with bacon or sausage patties on each day. Free wifi too! Walking distance to the waterfront. If you like to stay... More
