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

I would stay again. The rooms, as in all Comfort Suites, are nice and roomy and clean. The hotel was very clean and everyone was very pleasant. Convenient location. close to restaurants, good selection for room service. excellent quality for value . The breakfast was so nice and the staff were great.

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

Our reservation was for 3 nights but left after one night. Our room overlooked the back of buildings even though only 7 rooms were booked that night. The first morning, I went to the restaurant for breakfast to allow my husband to sleep. The front desk personnel showed me the restaurant and noticed there was no server. She brought me... More
