“Loved this Hotel”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

We loved this hotel. Our room was spacious, updated, modern, clean and quite lovely. The beds were super comfortable and we slept well. Our room window faced into the pool atrium and I worried it would be noisy, but it was not.

The staff were very professional, helpful and efficient. A bellhop in particular went the extra mile and was fantastic.

We ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant and loved it. I usually expect big hotels to have expensive buffets, but this was not and the selection of foods was quite large (and tasty).

The location is perfect, as it's walking distance to anything on the harbor and there's a FRED bus stop next door that took us up to the Citadel (thus avoiding the steep uphill).

This hotel was not inexpensive with cheaper choices nearby, but worth the price. Rooms were comfortable and decent sized with super views of the Halifax harbor. Soft beds, cozy quilts, and double paned windows provided an excellent night's sleep even though our room looked down on a popular pub. If you're renting a car, the Hertz rental is attached to the lobby. Facilities include a pub with fine service, a slightly overpriced restaurant with music, and a Starbucks with indoor and outdoor seating. The desk staff and concierge were efficient and helpful with quick check in/out and advice about getting around the city and to the airport. A fine swimming pool provided a break from the July humidity.

Most enjoyably the hotel is located on the boardwalk by the harbor. Walk a few yards outside and you have a wide choice of restaurants, souvenir shopping and harbor cruises. (We enjoyed the harbor cruise on the Mar sailing vessel past lighthouses and the busy working harbor.) Entertainment is available in nearby pubs. Halifax history unfolds with an easy walking tour of old buildings and museums. (I recommend the Maritime Museum and Sackville Navy memorial nearby & Point Pleasant Park, a short bus ride away). Inside corridors connect the hotel with neighboring buildings including a huge casino and a couple of small shopping malls.

We stayed two nights at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront and were not disappointed. We were on the top floor, no view but had a very quiet room . The bed was super comfy, the room clean and spacious. The location was excellent. right on the waterfront, lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. The pedway connection was very handy. I would definately recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to stay on the waterfront.

Wow, was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Perfect location, redecorated room - the quality you come to expect from Marriott. After 6 days in B&Bs it was so nice to check in here and feel totally taken care of!

Crisp linens, comfortable beds, huge TVs....all super nice.

My husband and I enjoy having a getaway to the city, and we always say at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront! We love the hotel, location, food and spa. Although the last time we were there was for our honeymoon, and when we checked in and got to our room it was two double beds and pool side! There was absolutly nothing they could do unless WE paid to upgrade to a suite! I couldn't believe they would even think to put us in a room like that, on our reservation we had put that it was a special occassion, our honeymoon. Obviously that was not important to them because we spent the night in a poolside room with two double beds watching an old man swim. The next night they moved us into a room with a larger bed, but who enjoys moving in the middle of their stay? We haven't been back since as it put a bitter taste in our mouth.

I'd suggest people try it out for themselves, as long as you don't care what kind of room you stay in. Also be prepared for not the friendliest service at the front desk. We usually just ignore it because you don't have to deal with them much.

We were very plased with our one night stay at this Marriott. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful; our room was super clean and spacious; the location was perfect, we walked out hotel side doors and was right on the waterfront where they were shops, restaurants, attractions, and more! Our room didn't have the best view (actually it was overlooking the hotel roof), so if you want a view be sure to specify that at check-in or when booking.

Halifax is an easy walking city so you can get from one end to the other in no time at all. So I appreciated the fact that we were on the waterfront where there was no car traffic at night or near the boardwalk. I would pick this location again in a heartbeat.
