“Great Hotel, Rooms in need of updates.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2010

I stayed at the Delta Halifax once again, and I enjoyed my stay. The hotel is located in a great area, close to shops, Metro Centre, Casino, Waterfront, etc.

I reviewed this hotel back in November 2008 on Trip Advisor and gave it a better rating. What is driving down the rating on this stay was the room. This time I stayed in a Delta Room (Lowest Category Room) and the room was not up to The Delta hotel standards. The carpet was worn and the walls had seen better days. This was not the case when I stayed back in 2008 which leads me to believe some rooms are refurbished and some not.
What was most noticeable was certain things in the room seemed like it came from the 1980's. The bath tub drain was rusted and dirty, the tap in the bath came right out of the 80's it seams and the Radio/Alarm clock wasn't very modern. Even the light fixtures on the ceiling were dated. I took a picture of the drain, Tap and Clock.

The only think that drove down the rating was the room. The hotel itself was very nice, the staff very friendly and the restaurant was perfect. The swimming pool was warm and the sauna was nice.

Will I stay in this hotel again? Yes. Will I stay in a Delta Room in this hotel? NO!

We got a very nice rate on this hotel through travelzoo and stayed 4 nights over Labour Day weekend. The location was great. It is an easy walk to the harbour, the casino and local pubs and restaurants.

We arrived after midnight but the friendly desk staff gave us a great recommendation when we asked for a pub with a wide variety of beer - Maxwell's Plum. It was only a few blocks away and still serving food late into the night.

Our room was lovely with a partial view of the harbour and free high speed internet (not wireless). The bed was very confortable and the room was spacious and met all our needs.

The only negative about the hotel was the pool - it was pretty old and has rust along the edges. It is in need of updating to be sure.

The adjacent mall is great for breakfast./coffee There are several food court options including Starbucks, Tim Hortons and Second Cup. Unfortunately it is not open Sundays & Holidays so good luck finding something those mornings. There is also a liquor store in the mall near the hotel enterance.

It is a little complicated to get in and out of the hotel to the mall and parking but we were able to figure it out by day 2. Unfortunately the cost of parking was a bit outrageous at $20 per day.

There is lots to do nearby the hotel. Everything is in close walking distance. Halifax is quite hilly so be prepared if you're heading away from the harbour.

We are happy to read you enjoyed your stay with us this past Labour Day weekend.

Its always great to hear stories about how our staff and location are key to our guests satisfaction. Maxwell's Plum is a bit of landmark in our city... we're glad you enjoyed the recommendation.

We are relentless in ensuring our pool and fitness room are always clean... that being said we recognize they are in need of an upgrade. This is in our 2010 plan.

Unfortunately parking is very limited in our city. We partner with Scotia Square (the attached mall and parkade). Our parking prices are legislated by their direction. We charge face value for our guests to park in Scotia Square's garage. We do price shop our city regularly and find our parking prices to be competitive with other downtown hotels. When making your next reservation inquire about our specials and packages... we have several options that have inclusions such as parking and breakfast.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your feedback... it is very important to us.

We hope to have you back as our guest soon!

Very accommodating and good natured, professional staff. The beds are so comfortable - great mattress and lovely pillows. Nice decor. Easy parking and within easy walking distance of Historic Properties ( with waterfront restaurants with a view), the Citadel, Art Gallery, shopping. Good alternatives to pricey hotel breakfast in the adjacent shopping mall. Only downside is having to walk through smokers to get in the entrance, but this could happen elsewhere too.

Thank you for making us part of your recent business travels plans.

We are very happy to hear your compliments of our staff and location. We believe our colleagues are our greatest asset... they are all very passionate about their hotel and its guests.

We are very fortunate to have a full access food court attached to our hotel that provides many options other than our outlets for that quick snack or meal on the run!

Our Delta Sanctuary Beds are really outstanding... many of our colleagues buy them for their own bedrooms! We also have many requests from guests to purchase our pillows... we have in the past added to our supplier order to fulfill these requests.

We agree that smoking can be an issue for any public building. We have placed our ashtrays away from our front doors to keep a clear and healthy entrance to our hotel We will keep this on our radar!

Thanks for your feedback... we look forward to having you back as out guest soon.

Myself, my wife and my 2 kids aged 8 and 11 stayed in the Delta Halifax for the first four night of our vacation to Nova Scotia. On arrival at the door we were warmly greeted by the staff who took our bags straight away. After an easy check-in we were shown to our room with two queen sized beds, as requested. The room was spotless, spacey and had everything you could want including Air-con. Thankfully, as the weather was so hot! Complimentary papers were left at the door every morning and the room was always cleaned while we were out (although a vacuum wouldn't have gone astray the odd day). The hotel is linked to the Scotia Square mall which also leads to the Barrington Place Shops (A great Barber works out of here). The hotel is only 5 minutes from the board walk. Overall, we had a great stay. The staff are so friendly and the food is excellent. I would highly recommend the Delta for families and individuals alike. The only negative I would have is that a bit of money would be well spent in updating some features and maybe to repaint the pool (although very clean). *A tip for the newcomers to Canada. In Nova Scotia we learn't that it is allowed to TURN RIGHT at a red light!!

My husband and I recently returned from a trip to the Maritime provinces. We stayed at the Delta Sydney, Delta Halifax and Delta Brunswick- see separate reviews. I have only positive comments for the Delta Halifax. It was in an ideal location downtown and close to the watefront. The room was clean and a good size. We particularly enjoyed the business center with free internet access on the 6th floor.

Thank you for letting is know how we are doing! Your feedback is very important to us.

We are very happy we were able to be part of your Maritime Vacation this summer. Our brand is very important to us... and are very appreciative of your support.

I agree our location is one of the best in the city with close approximation to all major city attractions. Our business center is a key service we feel necessary to provide as it is a means for our guests to stay in touch with family and friends while traveling away from home... we are glad you enjoyed that service.

We hope to be part of your 2010 travel plans!

We appreciate you taking the time post feedback from your stay with us at Delta Halifax. I am sorry your room door was not up kept to the standard you have come to trust from our brand.

We now have a room inspection program in place to ensure preventive maintenance is applied to our rooms and their contents to keep them in good working and visual conditions. We are sorry we let you down by assigning you a room that had a door issue.

We are very happy to hear your compliments regarding our staff and location... both are some of the best our city has to offer.

We look forward to having you back as out guest in the future to strengthen your confidence in our hotel and brand.

I stay here whenever I'm in Halifax. The hotel's located right downtown and is an easy walk to everything. The reason that I choose this one over the Delta Barrington is that you can park your own car (I find the mandatory valet parking at the Barrington to be inconvenient since parking is offsite). The rooms at the Delta Halifax are consistently clean, the beds are comfortable, and many rooms have a decent view of the harbour. The restaurant and bar leave a bit to be desired, but you're in downtown Halifax, so there are many good choices within a few blocks. Also, the hotel is attached to a small mall with a small food court (you don't have to step outside to get to it), which make for decent and convenient breakfasts.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are very pleased to hear you enjoy our downtown location, harbour views and access of the pedway system to our surrounding neighbors.

We would like to inform that we have in our 2010 plans to update and rejuvenate our food and beverage outlets... we confidently boast some of the finest cuisine in the city... however agree we need to do some work to bring the rooms themselves back to life.

We look forward to having you back as our guest soon!
