“"Delta was warm and welcoming"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Before my wife and I arrived at the Delta Barrington from Toronto we were assured that we would be well taken care of and we were.

Kylie and Melissa gave us a warm maritime welcome at reception, checked us in quickly and it was off to our Signature Club room. When you do stay at the Delta Barrington I recommend the Signature Club as it comes with a well arranged continental breakfast served in a private lounge for Signature guests. In the evening you can enjoy delicious
hor d'oeuvres which were a nice start before heading out for supper.

The hotel restaurant is currently being renovated so we couldn't experience it but hopefully in the future. Hotels do have to renovate folks and thats a good thing. Once completed it will be really nice. We didn't get to enjoy the pool because we were just too busy doing other things.

Our room was very comfortable clean and quiet, just what we hoped for. I had some of the best night sleeps in a long while. I'll have to get one of those Delta mattresses a.s.a.p. Our housekeeper Morgan always had our room ready and refreshed after returning from a days outing. Never short of toiletries etc.

Another nice thing about this hotel is that the bellmen wear Nova Scotian
tartan kilts. This is a quick reminder that you're now in the maritimes. Nice touch. Say hello to Frank (bellman) he always has a smile on his face.

If you're planning a trip to Halifax in the near future I highly recommend the Barrington. Manager Donnie Mac Donald and his team will certainly make your stay one to remember. They did for us!

Arrived at the hotel for a two day conference and from Melissa at the front desk to the housekeeping staff asking if we had a pleasant stay and hoped to see us again, the service was typical of the warmth and genuine care for guests that exemplifies the east coast hospitality. We will certainly return.

Service at this hotel was good, but the rooms were a bit dated and the hotel was loud when we were there (a saturday night).

Hello from Delta Barrington,

Thank you for choosing us on your recent Saturday get-a-way. There are many reputable hotels in Halifax and we really appreciate you choosing us. We pride ourselves on service levels and feel it is a main point of difference for us. We are currently renovating our lobby and in the process of opening a new restaurant... we understand our rooms are not the newest in the city however we work very hard to ensue cleanliness and preventive maintenance programs are in place.

Thanks again for choosing us... let me know if I can assist with any future reservations.

Very Best,

Donnie MacDonald

We arrived late Saturday night June 16, 2012 and were met at the door by a very happy and helpful employee who assisted us with our luggage and parking details. The room was very clean. We had a quiet nights sleep in a comfortable bed with quality bedding. The fridge was a welcome addition. When we arranged to leave the same young man assisted with our luggage. We asked if he had been on all night but he told us he had come in to work again that morning. He was just as cheerful and helpful as late last night. After receiving directions to the casino at the front desk I headed off, however it was a circuitous route and with the stores closed and not a soul around I wasn't very comfortable making the trek alone there and back. I wouldn't recommend doing this trip alone.
The only surprise was the cost of parking for one night.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 105 which looked out over the harbour and the bridge.

Greetings from Delta Barrington,

Thank you for choosing us on your recent visit to Halifax. We are pleased to read you enjoyed your stay and are very happy to hear you enjoyed our service levels... our employees are one of our greatest assets. I must admit our Delta Sanctuary Bed product is fantastic... its great to receive that feedback. Barrington Place shops and other outlets on the downtown link are not open on Sunday's I can understand your initial feeling. Please trust the downtown link is safe and secure. Parking fee's are something we are not able to control as we do not own a parking facility we rent the spaces from the adjacent parking garage in the Scotia Square complex.

Thank you again for choosing us... we look forward in welcoming you back soon!

Very Best,

Located down the hill from the Citadel and one block from the Convention Centre, and a very short walk to the harbour, casino and other hotels, the Barrington was an ideal location form which to see the town. The room was decorated in a B&B sort of way, was very clean, quiet, uncluttered and very easy to get comfortable in. The standard fare was available (desk, wireless internet, tv, bar, etc.). Internet access was free. There was pool and a small gym to help unwind at the end of the day.

Room service was friendly and the food nicely done and reasonably priced. The staff were decked in tartan, appropriately friendly, well-humoured, and informed of their surroundings and locales for visitors to see. The staff were a pleasure to deal throughout the 4 day stay and readily available to assist as needed.

I would recommend the Delta to friends and family for its location, staff, and value for the dollar.

Room Tip: 3rd floor away from the elevators

Greeting's from Delta Barrington!

Thank you very much for choosing us on your recent Halifax visit. We are very pleased to read your comments and are thrilled you left with such a great impression of our hotel and city. Our bell services staff wear the authentic Nova Scotia Tartan Kilt since we began doing so over 10 years ago it has been a hit with our guests and my colleagues who don the uniform.

Again we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and will be recommending our hotel to family and friends. My email is below please let me know if I can ever be of assistance with any future Halifax reservations.

Very Best,

The Delta Barrington meets your expectations of a business hotel with free WiFi, fast service and the usual look and feel to the rooms and bathrooms that you'd expect from a business hotel. They have a small gym and pool. We stayed 3 nights here for a vacation. While I have no complaints about it, there was also nothing that made me say "wow" about it, even the breakfast restaurant on the lower level was pretty much what you'd expect from a business hotel's menu. There is no onsite parking - you get the valet to park your car somewhere and then give them 10 minutes notice so they can collect it when you leave.

Greeting's from Delta Barrington,

Thank you for taking the time share feedback with us via tripadvisor. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and a very happy to hear your comments on our cleanliness, bed / linen products and service levels.

I am sorry to hear your room key demagnetized during your stay... I understand how frustrating that can be. We find at times batteries from cell phones and other mobile devices will wipe out the coding om our keys from time to time. Not sure if that was the case... non the less we will pay attention to this feedback and keep an eye out to be prepared to remedy any technical issue that may exist.

I am pleased to let you know we are currently renovating our lobby area... it's natural size is cut down due to the current project that will see us with a new dining experience along with a redefined and re-developed lobby space. This project is scheduled to be completed within the next 4 months.

Thank you for choosing us on your recent visit... we look forward in welcoming you back!

Very Best,

Donnie MacDonald

its hard to believe your entering a Delta,,the layout is a bit strange the lobby is an afterthought and the rooms are older But,honestly, clean rooms spotless bathroom and comfortable beds with quality bedding and mattresses and a working minifridge. all make the experience acceptable.Service was good and when my keys repeatedly demagnatized they bestowed upon me a breakfast buffet to ease the inconvenience..nothing like getting to a man through his stomach. Anyway,super helpful concierge and bell staff, polite and eager to please. With what they have they are doing quite well..Also, the massage set up at the sister delta hotel is actually quite reasonable and the RMT was decent..i would return here.
