“Great hotel in great little city”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I spent a night here at the beginning of March. Check in was super easy even though they were busy. Valet parking was quick on drop off and great the next morning when we left. Our room was clean, reasonably well decorated, and extremely quite. The location is also a big plus. Halifax is a neat city to walk around in and this hotel is in the middle of everything. Casino Nova Scotia is close as are great places to eat, shop and grab a drink. We had a coupon for the on site resto. "Tempo" is a cool space with great service. Sadly my steak was disappointing as it was not seasoned at all. Our server was great I think his name was Mark. We would return and stay at the Delta Barrington no questions asked.

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend away in Halifax in January and stayed at the Delta Barrington. They had provided amazing service to both my son and his girlfriend and my brother and his wife on previous visits, and we had always had great experiences there. Upon arriving, a young man named Taylor greeted us at check-in and was so friendly and accomodating. He called us by name, talked as if we had known each other forever and even complimented by travel bag! It was like going to visit an old friend. We were fortunate to have been upgraded to the Signature Club Room by Donnie MacDonald, Delta's Manager. Our room was spacious and very clean, and we were greeted with wine and a cheese/bread/fruit tray shortly after entering our room. A wonderful touch! As part of the package we were able to go into the Signature Club Lounge in the evening where we enjoyed fresh fruit, veggies, Hawaiian Pizza, smoked salmon, homemade potato chips and Expressos/Hot Chocolate etc. There was a staff member there, a young lady, who made sure we had everything we needed and had great conversation with us. There was also a complimentary breakfast available in the morning. It was an excellent stay at the Delta Barrington as usual, and the staff are the friendliest I have encountered at any hotel. If you are looking to be treated like family, have a relaxing, clean place to stay in the heart of Halifax and all its activites, Delta is the place for you!

I have likely stayed in this hotel over 100 times and just realized that I have never bother to provide an review. The location is great and you are within a few minutes walk to the waterfront and all the activities and restaurants located there as well as the most of the downtown core. Service has been impeccable and can't say enough about the Maritime hospitality. While the Delta brand is one I often stay at, there is a significant difference between the Delta Halifax and this hotel and am disappointed when I have to stay at the Delta Halifax. My favorite beds from a hotel stand point and would strongly recommend staying here for business or as tourist to Halifax which is a great city to visit.

I've always liked the Delta brand and the service at this hotel lived up to it's name. The rooms are a little tired and need updating however this is offset by the service and location. The room was clean. The staff were excellet and the location is good for easy walking to downtown businesses and local restaurant.

Beside points made in the title it was located in a very convenient spot.
Attached restaurant is brutal.
Front desk staff was ok though they seemed to forget almost daily to have the valet get my car even though I called down 20 minutes in advance.

Very nice location, good and clean hotel and convenient access at walking distance to stores, and restaurant. Tempo Restaurant inside the hotel has good food and very friendly staff.
The room is spacious, in good shape, and clean.
Also, the hotel offers free wi-fi (good speed), convenient small and functional business center that does the job.

Staff are very "accommodating" (pardon the pun) and friendly, the basic room is comfortable and well equipped, and the location in downtown Halifax cannot be beaten. It's particularly convenient in winter because you can walk to the casino and the World Trade Convention Centre without going outside. Prices are generally reasonable, considering what you get. Room service meals were a little disappointing, but not bad.
