Reviewed October 28, 2013

We've spent a couple of months in the Hotel this year and have no complaints. It's a great location for downtown and easy to get to places of interest, good food and the bars. The rooms are a great size for settling into and with the kitchen it made cooking easy when we felt a little adventurous. The Hotel is always clean and the staff are welcoming and knowledgable. It's a great place to stay and one we'll use any time we're in town. Many thanks to all the staff, they made us feel really welcome during our long stays and the personal touches on our returns made a big impression.

The hotel was what we expected--clean room, comfortable bed, decent breakfast, but it was primarily the Residence Inn Team who made our stay so enjoyable. Their friendly smiles and great sense of humor--we will not soon forget. Thanks to Angela Murphy and her team!

Room Tip: Room 526 comes with a view of the harbor.

Checked out prices on a few motels and this was the cheapest. The room was very large and home like including a kitchenette and comfortable chaise lounge! Very comfortable bed. Breakfast was included. Very quiet on the 4th floor. The hotel was centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere. Had to pay for parking as unable to find a parking place on the street.

We stayed here for one night after an overnight flight from Calgary. We hadn't gotten much sleep on the plane so we took a chance to see if we could check-in earlier (in the morning). Luckily they had one room available and we were able to get a good amount of sleep right away! It was great!

I've stayed here a few times before and I've never really had any issues. It's right downtown - centrally located between the water and the Halifax Gardens - so everything is walkable. The rooms are spacious and are nicely laid out decorated. Wifi works great. The beds were firm but comfortable.

We were able to get a room on the 5th floor and even though it faces some bars on Argyle Street we didn't hear any noise at night. My boyfriend used the weight room and there was plenty of free weights and equipment to keep him busy. The breakfast in the morning was decent. It was your standard buffet of eggs and sausages and they even have a waffle maker! It did its job for a complimentary breakfast.

The staff was friendly and helpful (especially the guy who let us check in early!!) and it's a good place to stay and relax while in Halifax.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to avoid possible noise from bars

had a quick one night stay here. Hotel was nice, room was clean and staff were friendly. Stayed overnight on a Saturday, but there was no street noise at all to be heard from our room which was on the fifth floor. The only complaint that I really have (and it's not even really a complaint) is that the parkade can be a little difficult to navigate if you drive a large vehicle.

The hotel is conveniently located downtown with spacious rooms. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The beds are too soft to sleep comfortably, especially if you are trying to sleep with your wife in a king-size bed. The very soft springy mattress carries every little motion at night, if one turns, the other goes bouncing.

The rooms facing Argyle Street are very noisy towards the weekends, it's party time until 3:00 a.m.

Room Tip: Do not face towards the harbor and Argyle Street, if you want some quiet sleep.

I had pleasure staying this hotel. Almost 3 months I have stayed in this hotel. All the facilities are well maintained and clean hotel. Location of this hotel also very attractive. Most of the famous restaurants were at walk in distance.
