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.

We stay here for our annual hockey team trip (past 4-5 years) and are never disappointed. Staff is always very helpful and courteous and parking is a breeze with valet service. The lobby is very modern and tasteful and the restaurant is also very good. Rooms are a good size, clean, and the beds are comfortable. Location is great (just... More

Our stay at the Courtyard Marriott in Downtown Halifax was rather disappointing. While the room was generally okay, it was clear that the hotel was undergoing a redecoration. We had no pictures on the wall, only bare hooks!! It would have been nice to be informed that this was happening in the hotel when we booked our reservation.The bathroom was... More

Hotel is being/was newly renovated and is very nice inside with comfortable and modern common areas in the lobby. The bathroom in the room was very clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable but my sleep was interrupted by the heater/air conditioner turning on periodically which sometimes had a loud bang.

The hotel was very quiet, especially at night because it isn't near any bars, so you don't hear drunk people on the streets in the middle of the night, and it's not really a party hotel. The lobby is beautiful and we loved all the food. We had breakfast in the lobby each morning and the staff were great. The... More
