“Good location”
Reviewed June 10, 2008

Good location to walk to the waterfront/pier activities. Had to walk up hill several blocks to all other downtown attractions. No view from hotel rooms. Rooms are comfortable, staff was very nice and the complimentary breakfast and 6th floor lounge was great.

  • Liked — Close to waterfront
  • Disliked — some staff not up to date on restaurants and what is open or when reservations are needed

Just returned from 2 nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was fine, spacious, fridge, iron, hairdryer, coffee maker, even an umbrella to borrow!! the check in was easy and pleasant, even though I had a bit of an issue using my airmiles, this was quickly fixed. The young men on the concierge desk were very helpful in suggesting restaurants, pubs and sightseeing etc. and we found all their suggestions to be great. location was perfect, 2 minute walk down to harbour.
Suggestions: Old Triangle pub was a lot of fun and the food was quite good too, great fiddle music and dancing, friendly crowd. McElvies was good food, a bit pricier! We really enjoyed Lobster Supper at the Shore Club in Hubbards on the way to Lunenburg. Loved Halifax and surrounding area, Peggy's Cove was gorgeous.

It was only after asking, as they are not listed on their online pricing room options, did I learn that not only does the hotel have jacuzzi tub rooms but also some rooms with bubble jet tubs. One or the other is often a nice way to unwind while out of town. It would be a lot sweeter though if the view through the large windows from the jacuzzi tub looked out over the harbour rather than at the 5 level parking garage 20 meters away! The neighbouring Marriott Courtyard/apartment complex is now essentially totally obscuring the previous decent harbour view to the east.

The hotel pool and hot tub are back in action after renovations. Underground parking is handy but the section next to the hotel is usually full so save yourself the trouble of turning around in this dead end and just park out in the main area of the parkade.

  • Liked — convenient location with an interesting in room tub
  • Disliked — view to the harbour is now obscured by the opposite apartment building

i stayed at this hotel from May 9-May 12, 2008. it was a busy time in Halifax with the hockey (IHF) happening there and we still had no issues checking into the hotel. i even checked in late in the day with no concerns. the room had a view of the harbour, not a perfect view but decent, it had two amazing queen beds (as requested) and it even had a fridge which was nice. i found the hotel to be very quiet, very little noise from the street and very little- to-no noise from the people sleeping above and around us which was nice. i checked out on Monday however my flight didn't leave till Monday night but the hotel has a bagage check service that i used and found very handy for my last day of sight-seeing.

in Halifax to walk anywhere you are either walking up a hill or down a hill but that didn't bother me, it actually helped to balance all the stuff i was eating and drinking during a very busy few days in the city. near the hotel there is a restaurant/lounge called Niche which had a wonderful menu and drink selection and i would reccomend eating here at least once during your stay. i spent a wonderful saturday night dancing and enjoying myself at the Old Triangle which plays live music (celtic and other) on saturday nights and it is just a few blocks down from the hotel. accross the street from the hotel is the Cabin Coffee shop, which was a wonderful breakfast and lunch spot that i would reccomend as well.

during my stay i saw the Halifax Citadel, Old Graveyard, Alexander Keith's brewery tour, Harbour Hopper, i took the ferry accross to Dartmouth and walked around the downtown area enjoying all the historic buildings and also the wonderful and unique restaurants in Halifax. all things i would reccomend doing during your stay. there are great little shops to poke around in and some very interesting used book stores that a person could spend hours searching through.

i quite enjoyed my stay in Halifax and would definately return to both the city and this hotel.

The location of this Sheraton makes me want to rate it as "above average" but the overall experience made me give it a "neutral". There isn't anything fancy or outstanding about the hotel. Check-in and check-out were easy. Rooms are clean. Bathroom is clean. Bed is pretty comfortable. The free breakfast they offer is just the basics...fruit, oatmeal, bagels, but it was a nice way to start my day before my business meeting. The location allowed us to walk to several restaurants, down to the boardwalk, and even to the arena for a hockey game. Granted, there are a lot of hills and the wind can get a little chilly, but I think this was the best way to see more of Halifax. More than likely I will return to this hotel. It is a good choice for location, brand name, and price.

A top notch hotel. Rooms are very roomy and seemed brand new. Great bed, TV, toiletries. Extremely good value for money. Front desk staff very helpful and friendly. Right downtown with easy one-block access to the waterfront. Several blocks to the casino. I have only good things to say about the hotel. Stay there.

  • Liked — Terrific room, with excellent furnishings and consumables.
  • Disliked — Nothing!

We checked in and went to our room which was nice. Around 8:00 that night, we noticed quite a bit of noise in the hallway, with children yelling and doors slamming. We considered asking to have our room changed, but since the children appeared to be young, we assumed the noise would probably stop soon. Wrong! By 11:30 I was calling the front desk to ask what could be done about the noise situation. I was told we could move, but we decided to wait until morning.

Next morning we went to the front desk, told them about the night before (they had a memo about my complaint) and they couldn't be more aplogetic. They agreed to move us. I asked for an upgrade which they readily agreed to and we were given our new key card and told that we had to swipe the card in the elevator to get to the "preferred floor" (6th.)

We stepped off the elevator and it was gorgeous. We had a suite that overlooked Halifax Harbor, with a separate bedroom and a living room large enough to entertain friends that were also staying at the hotel. Also, we had access to a lounge with a fully equiped kitchen, fridge, silverware, dishes, breakfast foods, computer with a printer, flat screen TV, electric fireplace, leather sofa and chairs, and a view of a courtyard where local artists have done an amazing job of creating the illusion of shops from long ago.

I was very happy with how they handled our complaint and without a doubt would stay here again. Next time I'll definitely make sure we're booked on the 6th floor.
