“Pretty good hotel with friendly staff!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Booked the Holiday inn Dartmouth through Priceline so got a good rate for the one night. The hotel is in Dartmouth so you will have to cross a toll bridge to get to Halifax. Dartmouth is kind of a run down area, not bad but not great either. The room we got was big, clean and quiet. The staff were great, very helpfull. The hotel I would call a 2 1/2 star, it needs a renovation, things just look a bit old and tired. Outdoor pool looks good, there's a small exercise room as well. Hotel has a restaurant otherwise only fast food restaurants in the area.

I am glad to see you enjoyed your stay at our hotel and found the staff to be helpful. We are continually up grading our facility and recently installed 37” LCD televisions in all of our guest rooms.

While the area we are in is not new by any means I would not call it run down, to the south of the property we have a beautiful park with new Tennis and Basketball Courts as well as a Beach Volleyball area. There are nice walking paths as well; we are a short 5 to 10 minute walk (depending on your fitness level) to Downtown Dartmouth where you will find a number of restaurants that are not fast food.

Thank you for sharing your experience with other travelers.

We didn't know about Dartmouth, but it's right across the bay from Halifax....with a 10 minute walk fro hotel to ferry and a 15 minute ferry ride. All great. Hotel was nicely done, sizeable rooms, good internet. Across the street from their public hall....John Mellencamp concern for us...unexpected, but wonderful. Very pleased with the hotel.

This hotel is ideally located in Dartmouth. We had chosen this hotel for our daughter's wedding guests, primarily based on overall cost. The service and cooperation provided by the staff and management, especially the reception desk staff and marketing manager, were outstanding. They went out of their way to help us in some of our planning glitches, and make our stay enjoyable. Excellent value.

The only negative comment is that the bathroom toiletries (soap,..) are kept on the outside wash basin.

Room Tip: Choose pool or harbour view rooms. Interconnected rooms are also available for families.

We held our wedding at the Holiday Inn Halifax Harbourview and our experience was absolutely wonderful! Tara, our event planner, helped with every last detail and truly kept my head on straight with all of the details right up until I walked down the aisle. She was extremely easy to work with and truly took an interest in making sure our day was perfect. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the food was fantastic!! We also stayed in the Executive Suite for the night before the wedding and the wedding night and it is truly beautiful, especially at night with the great view of the MacDonald Bridge :)

I would truly not hesitate to hold another event at the Holiday Inn Harbourview, they truly outdid themselves in regards to our May wedding.

Thank you Holiday Inn Staff!!!!
Erica and Calynd :)

Room Tip: The Executive Suite is definitely worth the $$ if it is a special occassion :)

Recently ate at the Cafe 101 restaurant at the Holiday Inn Halifax Harbourview and the food was delicious. The seafood chowder is stock full of different seafood and the base is yummy. The salads, trio of seafood cakes and the entree of crusted haddock was filling and some of the best we've eaten. Our waitress Theresa was very friendly and most accomodating to our every need. We will definitely be back for more. Thanks Theresa for a wonderful dining experience!!!

I travel a fair amount for work and go out of my way to stay at Holiday Inns, primarily so that I can earn the "reward nights" for family travel. So I was shocked to learn that the Holiday Inn Halifax Harbourview had rooms available for the night that I wished to book for my family vacation, but would not allow me to use my Priority Club points to pay for it. Not only that, but there wasn't a single night available in the next 12 months! I spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with multiple levels of reservation staff, assuming that this was just a technical error that could be sorted out; but all tried to convince me that every single reward-night room for the next 365 days had already been booked. When I asked one of them if that really made any sense to her, she didn't have a response. What this situation suggests to me is not that the reward nights have already been spoken for, but that this particular location has no intention of letting its loyal customers redeem their rewards points. I don't know if this is a Holiday Inn franchise owner issue or a Priority Club issue. It doesn't really matter -- these brands are synonymous with each other. I just know that it is a terrible way to treat loyal customers!

I can understand your frustration with regard to using your Priority Club Reward nights at our location. Our property is very popular with members for reward night redemptions and we allocate a certain number of rooms to that program and unfortunately once they are booked there are no more.

I can assure you our location and brand appreciates our loyal customers; that is why Priority Club is one of the largest reward programs in the world.

This was the first stop on our honeymoon to Atlantic Canada and we will never forget it! The staff were truly amazing. Everyone was friendly and so helpful in planning our activities. We always got a smile and a warm hello whenever we passed by the front desk. We had a nice room overlooking the harbour (an upgrade was given to us because it was our honeymoon!) The room was clean and suited our needs perfectly. The pool was a great plus as well.. the water was warm and the weather was great!
I hope we get the change to go back someday and will tell everyone we know to stay there if they go to Halifax!
