“Great location, clean, lots of dining options.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We stayed a week there recently. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. There are many good restaurants near by as well as the restaurants within the hotel.

We were on the 5th floor and had a view of the harbor. There are other rooms who have a better view.

Most things to do are within walking distance. There are also pedestrian bridges (enclosed) throughout the area to cross the busy streets safely and stay out of any bad weather.

The fitness room was large and well equipped. While we didn't use the spa, if it's as good as the rest of the hotel it would be excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the harbor.

I was in Halifax for business this week, our host arranged for a block of rooms for us to reserve, I got a room on the top floor with harbour views. Check in was smooth, the room well apportioned (but no fridge in the room). When I went to use the toilet after putting my bag down, I noticed that it had not been scrubbed. Housekeeping was right outside my door, I brought it to their attention, she cleaned it and apologized.

The next day I noticed some small items were left on the floor around the trash (no vacuuming), and the coffee maker/water heater hasn't been returned to it's place all week.

As I said, this is a great hotel, and my business friends that are here are not experiencing the same issue that I am, and while I am not saying my room is untidy at all, I know as a frequent business traveler what to expect with daily housekeeping, and can say a great effort is not being put forth, but I would also stay at this hotel again as I am sure it is an isolated incident.

Room Tip: Ask for a Harbor view, you will not be disappointed!

Location, location, location!
Right on the boardwalk. Near many restaurants, museums, cruise ship port, farmer's market.
An easy walk provides wonderful sightseeing, shopping, dining opportunities along the way.
Comfort? Most comfortable bed! Breakfast? Cooked to order--delicious. I would be happy to spend a vacation in this one spot.

Spent two nights at the Mariott while attending a conference. Great location right on the harbour. Easy access to the boardwalk and to all amenities downtown. Meeting rooms had spectacular view over the water - military and merchant vessels gliding by all day long. Didn't eat in the hotel restaurant but catering to the conference was excellent so I would take that as a positive indicator. Starbucks outlet in the lobby was a popular amenity!

We stayed here our last night in Nova Scotia, just for a treat. We were tired of driving and knew we could just park the car and walk around Halifax. Our room faced the front of the hotel and we thought it might be noisy but it wasn't at all. Even with the window cracked open. The best part of the hotel for us was that there was a Starbuck's in the lobby. That may sound dumb but we had trouble finding any good coffee in Nova Scotia, so after being coffee starved for a week, Starbuck's was mighty good. The price of this hotel was way too high but the location right on the boardwalk was prime. We were also able to check in at noon, which is almost unheard of.

We stayed at Mariott Harbourfront for 2 nights during our recent stay in Halifax. The room was just lovely, with a view of the harbour and boardwalk. It was quite expensive and no amenities were included in the rate (ie. breakfast, parking, internet). Location was very convenient.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the harbour.

chose to stay here instead of my usual hotel because there was a function i had to attend being held at this hotel.
Room for 2 nights was over $500 with parking and didn't include breakfast.
View from my room was of a wall and a roof vent.
Rooms were nothing to write home about and the employees are not very friendly.
Was awakened early to people in next room talking and someone on the floor above having a shower. You can hear everything through the walls.

Room Tip: lots of hotels in the downtown area. Compare prices including whether or not breakfast and parking a...
