We stayed here 5 nights on the first leg of our Maritimes trip. Hotel is in a perfect location within walking distance to all the attractions and restaurants. The hotel room was very comfortable and quiet - although this is the quiet season. We enjoyed our stay and would come back.

We were able to check in early and consistently got excellent service from the young woman at the front desk. When our ventilation system failed to work, we got a prompt visit from a very pleasant young man who had it operating in a few minutes. The location was good for touring the waterfront area, but the hike up the... More

Nice hotel with good sized rooms and a lovely bistro. Fantastic location on the harbour front in downtown Halifax - easy walking distance to most of the main sights and attractions downtown. The staff are friendly and there is a laundry, gym and pool on site. Surrounded by fantastic restaurants and with a great spa attached.

We specifically picked the top floor with balcony for the view. The view was amazing! The room was nice, however needed quite a few repairs. We stayed at The Westin not that long ago and for a much cheaper rate the room was much nicer.

Hello Laurie T, thank you for the review on our property. We had just finished a renovation on all guest room. So hearing this is a bit surprising. The Maintenance has looked into this and seems the moldings were incorrectly installed and have been repaired. Again thanks for the feedback and hope you find your way back to Halifax soon.... More

We spent our honeymoon night here and the staff couldnt have been more wonderful. Our room was lovely and we enjoyed the hot tub and pool. Our room overlooked the harbour and we were able to walk everywhere. We will be back.

Stayed here at either end of a road trip round Nova Scotia. Check in was easy and swift and the room was of a very high quality. All the usual suspects present, good, firm beds and very very clean. The ground floor bar area is also a Starbucks and does a really good breakfast at a very reasonable price. Kevin,... More

This is a great hotel because of it's location on the Halifax Waterfront. Very Close to the Museum of the Atlantic and the harbour front. It is also right next to Keith's Brewery Market. Rooms seem to have been renovated since the last time I stayed here. The only negative was the $22.95 valet parking charge especially when you see... More

Hello TAllen164, thank you for the review of the property. Good to hear you enjoyed the location and the hotel overall. I agree parking can be a bit hard to take in at times when staying in downtown hotels. We do utilize a valet service here and most times your vehicle is parked underground and secured for only staff access.... More

Stayed here just to relax after a stint at sea. The beds are comfortable. The free breakfast was amazing. The rooms are extremely clean. The hotel in general is very welcoming and warm. Love this place.

Great hotel, great location on the harbour, and great in-house restaurant. I would give up my lifestyle (except for fly fishing) if I could apprentice to the chef. If he produced a cookbook it would be a bestseller! I will definitely return frequently.
