Spent 1 night here to tour Halifax. It has an excellent location just across the street from the waterfront. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Check-in was quick and efficient as was bell hop service and valet parking. Our King room was large and comfortable with a great view of the harbor. I can't imagine a... More

Excellent breakfast and loved the pool area. I would definitely return. Remember the CAA discount for the stay and seniors' discount for the bistro. Was clean and like new. Nothing broken and wi-fi was free.

My wife and I recently came back from a weekend in Halifax where we stayed at the Courtyard Marriott. The hotel is very well located and easily accessed by downtown streets. It is located almost on the waterfront, a block away, and offers lots of nice services and great staff. The rooms are a good size, we had a king... More

Was here for one night one business. It is well located on the harbour and near the Keith's Brewery. It is an easy walk downtown and up to Citadel Hill. My room had a king bed, and was oriented towards the windows looking down on the courtyard which was different in a good way...felt less like a hotel room. The... More

I have been staying at this hotel ~every 2 months over the past year and so this review is well overdue -- The concierge and valet teams are amazing. They are extremely friendy (at ALL hours of the day and night) and exceptionally helpful with directions and dining/entertainment suggestions. My most recent stay (2 nights earlier this week) was no... More

Stayed here for a business meeting in the area. Room was clean, comfortable, quiet and well maintained. Many places to eat nearby and easy walking distance to many attractions in the downtown area. A taxi from the airport is pretty expensive, about $65 CND but a shuttle bus is available for $22 if reservations are made in advance.

Great affordable hotel well located in downtown Halifax (almost on the waterfront but not quite - but you can cross the street and hit the boardwalk). The hotel is very clean, the rooms are spacious and the lobby is very welcoming with an open concept check-in area, casual sitting room and bistro. The small library and computer station are a...

Kevin went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable. He went so far as to secure menus from a nearby restaurant and placed our takeout orders for us ( something the resto normally doesn't do by the way). He then allowed us to eat in the hotel lobby, ensuring our hockey team was comfortable and well fed before... More

This hotel is a gem. We arrived by cruise ship and were able to walk to the hotel in 10 to 15 minutes from the Cruise Port. The hotel is located on the waterfront, a short walk from downtown. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. We arrived well before the posted check in time and when the receptionist... More
