My wife and I are trying to book a hotel in the downtown area for our wedding anniversary and checked hotels online. I have had a very poor experience with one in particular: The Courtyard Marriott, Halifax. The room was $160 after taxes and the promo we thought we were getting was for free parking and a gift card for... More

Third time staying at this hotel. Staff is super friendly and helpful with all our needs. Great restaurants and plenty of good pubs, all within walking distance. Waterfront is just across the street. Make sure to go up to the 8th floor, rooftop terrace with great views of downtown, waterfront and Dartmouth.

I usually travel to Halifax 2 - 3 times a year and every time I alway stay at this hotel. The rooms are a perfect size with a magnificent view and has their own mini fridge and coffee maker! (which had me as soon as I walked in) They recently renovated the lobby which has a wonderful modern looking breakfast... More

My husband and our toddler were in Nova Scotia for a week and stayed at this hotel at the beginning and end of our trip. It is a great hotel in an excellent location. They are welcoming to toddlers and provided a crin for our stay. Check in and check out were easy. Parking is valet only but try to... More

Not a good experience. Much like every other hotel in downtown Halifax, this one is overpriced. Additionally, they charged me the quoted rate for the first night - and then decided to add forty dollars for each additional night on the bill. The receptionist did resolve this, but since they charge the credit card automatically, I wonder how many people... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Courtyard by Marriott Halifax, we sincerely appreciate all of our guests feedback, and are certainly apologetic our actions have not met your expectations. Often in hotels rates do change mid stay. I am disappointed to know that during your booking process this was not properly communicated. However, was pleased to... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Courtyard Halifax in mid-July on our honeymoon. The location is exceptional ... just a short walk away from all that Halifax has to offer in terms of the best restaurants, bars and attractions. I have always admired its cute twinkle light outside on previous trips to Halifax, so I was quite... More

Check-in was easy. The valet parking was well-managed. The room was clean and comfortable. Although there was a small restaurant, it was more of a bar during the afternoon/night. We did not eat there. There were several dining options on the pier. The pier was close and an easy walk.

This is a beautiful hotel located downtown in Halifax. It's appearance would rival a major hotel stateside. The lobby and rooms are very nice. The front desk staff was extremely nice and helpful. I will definitely return again when in the area.

Every time I go to Halifax, I now stay at the Marriot Courtyard. Located right beside the old Alexander Keith's Brewery, and just a few minutes walk from the rest of Downtown Halifax. The staff continuously goes out of their way to help, which is something I expect from hotels in the Maritime Provinces. Has a small gym and pool.... More

We recently spent 4 nights at this hotel in Halifax. It is about a 30 minute drive from the airport. It is one block from the harbor- where there is plenty to do: food, shops, a museum, cruises on tall ships and more. The rooms were clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable! The only drawback was the lobby... More
