“very relaxing.....January in Halifax!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2011

my husband and I decided to take a long weekend in Halifax to combine a brief work meeting with a 3 day weekend. Halifax in the summer is glorious...in the winter it is freezing. However the warmth and friendliness of every hotel employee from check in to check out was sizzling. We had no concrete plans other than enjoy some fabulous Nova Scotia seafood dining and hospitality. We were guided to local favourites, some we checked out, some were not to our taste, but the staff were so charming we can't wait to go back. The restaurants and wine bars in downtown Halifax we did visit were outstanding, and all the better for not being packed like they are in the summer.

We had a nice stay at the Delta Barrington. No real complaints. The room was a little claustrophobic but you get use to it. The front desk service was great as well as the service in the small hotel bar. It's a in a good location, downtown across from Scotia Square mall and by the Metro Center.

Having last stayed here about 15 years ago I was worried that the hotel would have become dated but overall I was very impressed. The staff are great, the bed was very comfortable and it was an enjoyable 5 night stay. Traders Bar in the lobby had very nice food, and great staff. One night had $5 all you can eat mussels. They were quite wonderful.

Great service and an excellent staff.

In order to park my vehicle indoors, to protect it from the Hurricane, they kept the Thule storage unit in the Manager's office after it was removed from the roof rack.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!!!

We’ve stood in this hotel in September 2010. This place was OK for us to stay for a couple of nights; location is very good. Nothing fancy, furniture and rest of facilities are a bit outdated (AC control barely worked), room was not super-clean but OK; the only real complain I have is quality of mattresses. The hotel staff was nice and helpful. What they call restaurant looks rather like a bar and opens only at 4pm; so we went to “Boston Pizza” (the same building). Breakfast cafeteria (downstairs) is not bad at all, but if you are not a good eater at early hours (like myself) it is a bit money waste. There are few others outside where you can buy French croissant and cup of coffee for quarter of price.

Greeting's martsipon,

We appreciate you taking the time to post on your recent experience with us at Delta Barrington.

We are sorry to hear your comment regarding our mattress... our bed product normally provide our guests a great sleep. That being said I do have a private message to you in hopes to obtain your room number so we can look at that particular mattress and make sure it is replaced!

Our breakfast offering is regularly compared to other hotels in the area to ensure we are competitive in our offering and price. That being said you are right when yo mention there are other options out of the hotel that have very nice and less expensive offering than a hotel dinning room... as our location has us in the heart of the city.

Thanks again for sharing your feedback! We hope to see you back soon.

Regards,

Delta Barrington

After a $60 cab ride from the airport (it is that far from the Downtown core from the airport) I was greeted by the staff and ready for a week long stay. The hotel staff were nice and accommodating. The rooms seem dated, but also felt like part of the look and feel of Halifax. I was in the conference rooms for a few days. The service to the room was mixed - sweeping temperature changes and there are no windows - which makes for a long day, but that seems to be the case at quite a few conferences.
Overall it was a good stay, close to all the cool stuff to see and do in Halifax and I'd be happy to recommend it to others in the future.

We stayed there last night august 18th. The room was very nice, large, nice tv etc. Problem started when we went to bed. The bed was a 54" (too small when used to a king size bed). The pillows were so big I got a stiff neck. Needless to say we didn't get any sleep. The hotel staff was superb. Location is perfect. Downtown and close to everything a person could want in Halifax. So yes I strongly recommend this hiotel but stay away from room #354
