The Courtyard Mariott - Downtown Halifax is a great hotel in a great location. Our room had a king size bed with a lovely couch, that could fold out, if needed AND situated with a beautiful view of the harbour. Located across the street from the waterfront, walking distance to Spring Garden Road, and to many great restaurants, both on... More

The hotel is in an excellent location, near the water and a lot of restaurants. The rooms are spacious and clean. Parking is by valet only, which I don't mind and my husband disliked. There are two restaurants in the hotel, both of which are excellent, and well as other good choices within walking distance.

It's a little price for my taste but good luck finding a cheap hotel in downtown Halifax. That being said the place was great. the rooms were awesome and It was nice having a place to hang out downstairs by the desk. There's a bar/cafe where you can get some things to eat as well as things to drink. starbucks... More

Hello Pilsbury79, we were sorry to hear of your experience. We will always try to accommodate all early check ins. However, this time if year can be a challenge to accommodate. Very sorry for your 45 minute wait..traveling can be exhausting at times, so to further wait for a room can be very hard to accept. . We are a... More

We stayed here twice on our 3 week trip to Halifax and both times we were given a large corner room with a king bed. The room overlooked the harbour and was in pretty good condition with a large bathroom. All the staff were pleasant, the hotel offers a small fitness room with fairly modern equipment which we used and... More

Typically on a vacation it's the independent, charming, smaller accommodations that stand out. While that was certainly true of the honeymoon trip my husband and I took in Atlantic Canada, there's no denying that our stay at the Courtyard Halifax Downtown was a great one. After an incredibly long day of travel with endless delays, we were greeted at the... More

I like this hotel in general 1) right beside Keith's brewery 2) right by the water 3) friendly staff 4) Cabin Coffee is right by the corner. Local coffee shop which is 10x better than Starbucks There are certain things I do not like about this hotel 1) the gym is way too small 2) the bar closes at 11pm

We stay here once a year. It is steps away from the waterfront. Surrounded by high end and chain restaurants, pubs, harbour cruises, Markets, rickshaw rides, dance clubs, blues clubs. Leave your car with the boys, check in, unpack. Then step across to the CUT restaurant. Go upstairs for fine dining. Then walk through the city streets to find local... More

You seriously cannot go wrong with this hotel!!! The location is directly beside the ALEXANDER KEITH'S BREWERY and across the street from the beautiful Harbour Boardwalk. Minutes from the Citadel, museums and delicious restaurants (also min away from Dalhousie University) . The hotel is fresh and clean with the most comfortable beds and friendly staff. The best for us is... More

This place is always clean and always has friendly professionnal staff. I return to this hotel whenever I know I need to be nearby for business and always look forward to these stays. There is only valet parking but the wait is usually acceptable.
