The only reason I was able to stay at this pricey hotel was because of credit card reward points. I am glad I cashed those in, though. It is a very nice hotel. Parking is valet only and adds about $20 to your bill. The lobby has a little restaurant with a limited Starbucks coffee menu. The classic oatmeal was... More

Second time to this excellent hotel right on the beautiful waterfront of Halifax. Upgraded to a waterfront room and than treated to the most pleasant helpful staff we have encountered on our many trips. Hotel is spotless, rooms very bright and well decorated. Terrific expansive view of the harbour for all from the rooftop patio. Easy walking distance to all... More

In early June, I stayed at this hotel while attending a 3 day conference in Halifax. The location was optimal for dining out and walking around downtown Halifax. The hotel is within a 5 minute walking distance from some of the finest restaurants in town, including Chives, Cuts and DaMaurizio's. Within the hotel itself is the Bistro, which offers a... More

Hello Pauline C, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with tripadvisor. We do appreciate all feedback, positive and constructive. I tend to agree the top floor views are fantastic and most days the roof top terrace is a great escape to sit and enjoy the scenery. I am glad you had an opportunity to take it... More

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
