“Best Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Best location to visit all downtown and harbour attractions - waterfront, Dartmouth ferry, Citadel and Public Gardens.

All staff we encountered greeted us with a smile and Hello. Honestly, they seem to enjoy their jobs and have been successfully trained by management on how to deal with customers.
Front desk was very focused on ensuring we were very happy with our stay. Our booked 2 bed arrangement was not available at check in but we were upgraded to a full King suite with hide a bed instead and was acceptable with concessions.

Wonderful bed, just right for firmness.
Only suggestion - carpeting in room could use a deep cleaning to remove spills.

View of harbour was outstanding even though it was a few blocks away, 6th floor views were stellar. Walking is for the physically fit as it was up and down hills.

Room Tip: View of the harbour is ideal and the higher the better.

my favourite place to stay in Halifax. Nice rooms, good beds, great location close to restaurants and shops of Spring Garden Road area, wonderful roof top terrace with a view to die for. Great breakfast.

Great location and nice rooms. A great value for the money. Would stay again. Really liked the roof top deck with feet views of downtown. Easy walk to shops and restaurant. Would recommend. We enjoyed the breakfast as well.

Everyone was friendly and helpful, especially the front desk. Location was terrific - easy to walk all around the city from the hotel. Parking was $16/day and worked well. Did not think the upgrade for $40 was worth it since we weren't spending a lot of time in our room and the complimentary breakfast was adequate.

Rooms were OK. Smell of first room was definitely of smoke. Front desk made it easy for us to switch to another. This second room also had a funny odor, but at least it wasn't overwhelmingly of smoke -- we stayed since we were tired of switching. Appreciated the variety of pillows, but most were lumpy and not very comfortable. Lighting was fine, but it was terrible in the bathroom. A mirror out in the room would be helpful. The kitchenette and furnishing were nice and would be helpful if you wanted to eat something in the room.

Workout facility was one of the better set-ups for a small hotel that I've ever seen. Good selection and nice view from the top of the building. Only downside was the location of the hot-tub in the same large room. Hard to get good cardio when you are sucking in air that reeks of chlorine.

Room Tip: Lower rooms have little view of anything but retaining wall and parking lot. Upper are clearly bett...

We stayed twice - the first was for six nights and the second was for two. The first time was had a standard room with a small kichenette, which was fairly spacious. The second time was had a one bedroom suite that was spcaious, witha kitchen area, a separated bedroom and a small living area. The staff was terrific with suggestions on where to visit and with detailedmapes on how to get out of town for day trips - and getting out of Halifax is sometimes no easy matter.

Our first room was drectly opposit the Citadel while the second faced the harbor. In both cases, the room was quiet. Breakfast was fine and the parking was a plus. On Wednesdays there's a wine and cheese reception in the lobby for guests to meet one another and to compare notes. One the roof, just ouytside the fitness area, is a viewing area and a place for sitting and relaxing with a view of the city and the Citadel.

The locate is perfect. It's an easy walk to the waterfront and to the many restaurants within a couple of clocks of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again. It is an uphill walk from the waterfront, and someone with a walking problem might find that unsuitable.

Room Tip: Upghrade to the onme bedroom suite. The extra $25 or so give you underground parking privileges at n...

Even though it's some months since my visit, I endorse all the good comments made by other travellers. The staff are brilliant and helpful; rooms very clean and comfortable; internet in the little business centre was free; and the natives are friendly! Some other guests and I were delayed joining a tour to PEI and Cape Breton and we were seamlessly checked back in to await news - no dramas, only smiles and understanding. The only down side I found was the young man waiting on tables in the dining room who insisted on calling me "dear" (he was about 35 years my junior); but as I overheard him saying "I'm from New Brunswick" - I guess that excuses him! I also found the staff at the airport very helpful and had no trouble getting the shuttle bus into town and delivered to the hotel's front door. As a mature-age female solo traveller, I'd definitely recommend this establishment, and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We were pleased with this hotel. A different place to stay - kitchenette in the (spacious) room with a small sofa area. The location was great and we could park under the hotel (about $16 per night). The room was clean and quiet and we had a nice view. The staff were friendly and provided some good recommendations.

Our deal included breakfast. This was fairly standard; cereals, boiled eggs, bagels etc. The fruit was a little weird tasting(!). It was nice to have it included in the price but a few small things could have improved it- there were no small spoons available for yoghurt etc. and no easy way to slice up the grapefruit halves - nothing major.

The hotel was very eco-friendly which was excellent. Recycling was provided in the rooms and the toiletries were environmentally friendly (and smelt great!).

A good place to stop in Halifax.
