From the check in to check out the staff was amazing. They went out of their way to help us. The hotel is being renovated but there was miminal disruption. Can't wait to see it when it's completely renovated. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was nice and quiet.

I've stayed here twice each for 2 nights with my husband and 8 year old. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and it's close to everything.

We ate brunch at the restaurant and it was top notch with a lot of variety. You can access the walk-way and get to other venues without needing to go outside. The pool temp. was good and was an adequate size. There is a salon/spa off from the pool, however I didn't get a chance to go. I have no reservations in staying here. At check-in the hotel gave my daughter a "treasure hunt" type game where she had to find a number of answers to get a prize. Although the prize was a bit lame, she had fun getting all the answers.

Room Tip: There are rooms surrounding the pool, mainly booked by parents with kids. I wasn't interested in...

We've stayed here twice now and we are never disappointed. We love the location right downtown. Had a great room, great sleep and found it very quiet. We didn't eat at the restaurant however, so can't comment.

Room Tip: We were facing the street side but you could ask for a harbour view. I imagine all rooms are fine.

This is my second stay at the Halifax Harbourfront Marriott. I enjoy this hotel because it is in such a great location. It's right on the harbour and beside the Casino. There is also a very convenient indoor walkway that connects to the casino and the Scotia Mall (this isn't a big mall but it had some stuff). This was perfect for my trip since the weather was fridgid!

There are rooms with views of the harbourfront but I booked my trip through priceline so my room didn't have a view but really, who goes to their room for a view? My room was quite large and super comfortable. The bed was quite nice but the pillows are so much nicer at the Westin.

The pool area is my favourite part. It's a nice size and has a hot tub that is actually hot! There is a spa right next door to the pool and the fitness area looked great as well.

The hotel was under construction when I arrived but I barely noticed. I think they are putting in a new restaurant. Right now they have a temporary one in the lobby that seemed nice and had a decent menu. A store would be nice in this hotel because I felt a little snacky at night and wanted a bag of chips but nothing is open around the hotel at night so I had to wait till breakfast. Even a vending machine would do.

Overall, the Marriott is a great hotel and I would for sure stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in December and it is halfway through some major renovations. The rooms are modern, spacious with comfortable beds. The gym on the second floor is one the best I've seen at any Marriott ... lots of cardio machines, good free weight selection and plenty of stretching space. Meeting rooms are a little dated with uncomfortable chairs, but most hotels have this problem. It is central to good restaurants and it is connnected to other office and government buildings via pedway for access during inclimate weather. The lobby and restaurant were under renovation to the new open lobby Marriott concept so I look forward to my next Halifax trip to see its progress/completion.

Great location. As previously mentioned the hotel is undergoing renovations, however, the room was very nice, clean and well appointed. The staff were all very friendly. Stay was short - only one night but overall very happy with the stay and will return again.
