“Decent hotel, a bit dated, and a bit far from the 'action.'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stay in Halifax a lot... and this was out first time at the Atlantica. We got it via hotwire for a very low price - so it was worth it. The desk/hotel staff was very helpful, and happily brought us glasses and a bottle opener/corkscrew when requested.

The rooms were a touch on the dated side- but not so-much-so that it was a problem. Bed was comfortable, and the room was clean.

Compared to some of the other hotels we've stayed at in the past - this one was the farthest away from the main downtown area most people are visiting. It's a bit of a walk, but not unbearable.

Overall the hotel was nice, and the staff friendly.

Nice sized pool with shallow wading pool for younger children, no adults only swim times though. The leisure area also includes a sauna, hot tub and spot to work out.

The room seemed relatively well kept and the bed was comfortable.

We did not dine at the resturant.

We were not at all satisfied with the parking fiasco we encountered. The hotel was holding a dance for Halifax's pride week. We returned from a short trip out for supper to be greeted by a security guard who told us parking was full. We informed him we we're staying at the hotel and showed him our parking pass. He reassured us that parking was full and told us that if we brought the car back around 1am after the event spots may have opened up. We had to park a block away, and walk to the hotel. We notified the front desk, they were polite, but nothing was done for us.

We do not travel often and this was a weekend away for us. Having to find a parking spot on the street and hope not to get ticketed was not what we were expecting. We were relatively pleased with the accommodations, but this soured our experience, guests who are staying in the hotel should come first!

Reception staff are notably very welcoming and extremely helpful.

Our room was a bit tired and had a musty aroma.

Per we, hotel is fine but it is not a downtown hotel by any means. It is a good 20 min trek in the July heat to the waterfront.

The staff at the Atlantica made my stay pleasant not the hotel , the n street noise or the over priced and small portioned food. The concierge ( Damarco ) made me feel at home. Crystal my room attendant made sure my room was clean and well stocked at all time.

Thanks to both of these employees.

We recently stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and had a terrific experience. The location was good, amenities were very satisfactory and the staff was terrific and accommodating. Sarah at the front desk in particular proved to be very helpful on a few occasions and seemed genuinely happy to assist us. We would gladly come back again.

Thanks front desk team for being so great and accommodating!!!

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel twice in the past few months with both stays booked through hot wire. They are a fair distance from the downtown core but there are lots of shops, restaurants and green space in the area. We have stayed in a regular room as well as in one of the premium rooms. Both rooms were great and the premium room was well worth the additional cost. Check in was smooth and there is parking garage under the hotel. The pool is large and the there is a small fitness room, sauna and hot tub. Their restaurant/ lounge offers a great spot to relax and the service was top notch. We will return.

Room Tip: higher the room the better the view
