I found the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront to be extremely well-situated with excellent facilities and friendly, helpful personal service from the front desk staff and concierge. The hotel is located along the Harbour boardwalk, and it’s just a short walk to many of the city’s leading tourist attractions, including the highly worthwhile Maritime Museum. The big lobby includes an in-house Starbucks.... More

Marriott Harbourfront Halifax. Location fine, in the midst of it all. Arrival pleasant, immediate bell service by friendly guy kind enough to wait for my husband's return from parking garage. Check in was professional, friendly and helpful. Upgraded to partial harbor view (plat.status). Hallways, bright and clean, look newly carpeted. Room size and furniture standard Marriott. Room (515) itself is... More

Hotel was in the center of the waterfront had very nice rooms, great pool area, for the workout lover the gym had a lot to offer, for those who like to gamble, a short walk to the casino all indoors, great restaurants near by and history abounds.

We stayed here two nights during our vacation road trip. Fantastic location, lots of attractions to keep you busy for two days within walking distance. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The bathroom seemed a bit dated, for a Marriott. Time to renovate.

We've decided this is our hotel of choice when visiting the city. Valets and welcoming staff are great; as is the entire hotel staff. Always smiles and a greeting. The roof top patio is the best kept secret in town......beautiful water views and the full moon over the harbour was spectacular.

I have stayed in many Club - or as the Mariott calls it Concierge - Level rooms before at Intercontinental and Fairmont Hotels in many different places (prior to getting on TripAdvisor), but this one was the most lacking.

Went for conference. Out of date. Cheap rooms. Small bathrooms. We must have been close to the elevators as we heard every time it was used. There has to be rooms with a view, but we got a nice view of dumpsters and elevated walkways. Location is exceptional though. I'll give them that. The new outdoor patio is nice too.... More

Was there for business for two nights including hotel catered meals. As soon as you enter you feel welcomed. The personable service was great and seen the entire stay. The room was spacious and clean. The meals were very well prepared. This is a great venue for seminars, etc. also looking toward a personal trip here as well.
