“Wonderful Wedding Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

In Halifax to attend a wedding so wanted a hotel which was close to the events and central so we could walk the area. Although under going remodeling at the entrance, the Delta hit the spot. Once we got on the northbound side of Barrington St so we could avail ourselves of the valet parking, everything was easy. We were offered the upgrade to a Signature Club Room and although it was an additional $20 per night, we deemed it worthwhile as we wouldn't have to worry about breakfast. And we did partake of the munchies early Friday evening in the Signature Club Lounge.
It appears the rooms have been done over as the bathroom tile looked new, everything was clean - except for the steam exhaust vent over the shower. It wasn't replaced and looked stained with years of dirt. Perhaps not many guests look up when taking a shower.
My wife appreciated the bathroom amenities. The room also had a small fridge which allowed her to store her diet snacks properly. The king size bed was perhaps a little soft and lumpy but after all the walking around the downtown and uptown areas, and the dancing and partying the second night, we slept well regardless.
Central, convenient, very courteous and helpful staff. Very pleased with our weekend stay!

Hello from Delta Barrington,

I am very sorry we did not provide you the experience you would have expected. We let you down on many fronts and again am very sorry for that. I am happy our rooms manager from the hotel did have an opportunity to connect with you and provide a positive closure to your stay.

If you are willing we would certainly appreciate another opportunity to provide you with a better experience. My email is below... please feel free to contact me directly if I can assist with a future Halifax reservation.

Despite the renovations, the hotel was quiet and I was blown away by the quality of the service from the staff out front. From suggestions of things to see in Halifax or just getting our car a few times to retrieve forgotten goods, we were quite pleased with the service.

The Delta Barrington is a 4 star hotel in the heart of the city between the citadel and the waterfront. The rooms were immaculate and well decorated and most of all comfortable.
The staff were outstanding including the doormen in the Nova Scotia quilts that parked your car.
I would return here in a heartbeat.
Some construction ongoing on over the summer but heard no noise. I am an early riser and out for the day so enjoyed my stay. Slept like a baby.
Coffee in room and Starbucks station on every floor by elevator.

Room Tip: Highjer floors less noisy during renovations.

Great service, the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The location is central to most major attractions in Halifax. I'm glad I wasn't planning on sleeping in as the hotel is renovating and construction started at 8am. Not a major thing but I'm curious as to why they would renovate in the middle of their busy season.

The hotel site did not mention the construction when were searched for hotels afew days ago. When we arrived they mentioned work in the entrance way-this one will see as they arrive- no problem. The concern was the pounding on pipes and hammering that began at 7 AM the next morning!! When we phoned down they just brushed us off, comment was I guess it is some construction. Throughout the day the workers have sat quietly at different times and one has to wonder why the " work" had to start at that hour. Usually hotels try to make guests feel welcome, this hotel does not seem to be striving for that image.

Room Tip: Not sure what to suggest, once I had booked using the internet I did phone directly and even at that...

Hello from Delta Barrington,

Thank you for choosing us on your recent stay. I am sorry to hear of this construction disturbance you experienced during your stay. We do have notice alerts posted on our home page and our reservation agents are up to date on the project. That being said it is difficult to update property copy on third party sites. Again I am very sorry for your experience... not what you would have expected nor what we wanted to provide.

I am hoping you maybe willing to contact me (email below) as I would like to attempt to bring a positive closure to your stay.

I look forward in hearing from you.

Very Best,

Donnie MacDonald

We stayed here for a wedding that was in the area. Although the location was great, we were a little baffled when we walked in to no front desk, because everything is being updated. The noice was crazy, but not much you can do when they are trying to update. We didn't get discounts, but were offered a free breakfast, which in fact was very good. The rooms are outdated, but the beds were still comfortable and the room was fairly clean (needs new carpets)

Room Tip: try and get a room on the 3rd floor where they offer free Starbucks coffee and tea.

Great small hotel, clean, friendly and in a great location. We walked to Historic Properties, the boardwalk and may other attractions. The staff were very helpful. Only disappointment was that in Halifax you had to be over 19 even to sit in a bar after 9pm.

Room Tip: Any room works. Few amenities but a nice place
