“Exceptional East Coast Comfort”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

The hotel has been open since May 2014 and it still has the new hotel smell. All furnishings throughout the hotel are extremely comfortable. The Homewood shares its property with The Hampton Inn and is connected by a confusing hallway system in the basement because the gym and pool are shared by both hotels. If you happen to get lost, take the time to look at the beautiful art on the walls. The pictures depict Halifax and the surrounding area. If you are not sure what to do while in town, have a look throughout the hotel. The pictures will inspire you to visit that location.
My son and I only spent one night because we were in town to see the Nova Scotia Tattoo. The hotel is a two minute walk to the Metro Center, (or by now its called Scotiabank Center) and countless places to eat drink shop or just stroll along the boardwalk.
We had more than enough space in the king suite on the 15th floor with large windows. No problem seeing the ferry going back and forth or the Dockyard. Great views are also possible from the hallway as well.
Hilton has a reputation to make their guests feel at home and this Homewood does not disappoint. The front desk took the time to discuss how easy it is to connect to their WIFI no matter what device you bring. I didn’t feel like I was being rushed through check in. My son even was given the opportunity to ask questions at check in.
The lodge is very well laid out, with room to move about even in the biggest crowds. The service at supper and breakfast was like no other I have experienced while staying at a Hilton property. Although the staff was different at each meal, the service remained exceptional. They couldn’t do enough for you. From a warm down home hello to it will be my pleasure to refill your water glass. The housekeeping staff actually holding elevator doors for guests. It’s wonderful to stay at a hotel where the staff is actually happy doing their job.
Hilton has done right by coming to Halifax, teaming up with dedicated hard working Maritimers!

Room Tip: The higher floors offer excellent views of the harbour or Citidal Hill.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We're so happy that you received great service from our Front Desk and during meal service at our hotel. I travel with my children regularly and it's so nice when they're recognized, as a parent I understand why that's important. Thank you for appreciating the photography and artwork at our hotels, As proud maritimers, it's so nice to feature local work throughout both our Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites. There's no mistaking that you're in Halifax when you walk our public spaces or stay in our rooms! It was also nice to see that our staff appreared "happy". With a beautiful new prodcut to offer our guests, I feel it's our job as managers to provide a positive, supportive environment for our associates, as that positive "vibe" will hopefully be passed on to our guests. Nice to know that was your experience.
We look forward to welcoming you back!

The staff were super friendly and went the extra step to help my family's visit be stress free and relaxing. The suites were brand new and very comfortable. The complimentary breakfasts and suppers were great.

Comparing this property with other Homewood suites i have been to it is a 4 or 5 star hotel. compare it with every hotel i have been to and it is a 3 star. can't beat the fact that it is brand new, everything is pristine and working perfectly. the staff are very helpful, but have not got the hang of the computers and room types, but everything worked well after we got our second room with a decent view. Homewood sites is notorious for bad food, this rates higher than most but still had frozen food sometimes that was not good. The tray of identically shaped "cheese omelets" were clearly pre-manufactured boxed frozen items as an example. I don't like the $20 a night charge to park but that is in line with most all downtown locations. The maid didn't leave fresh towels on one day and never seemed to notice the coffee was used and replace the keurig cups.

Thank you for your detailed review of our hotel. I wanted to ensure you that we've reviewed your comments with our team, specifically we have addressed:
1) Our housekeeping team - we have reiterated the need to ensure that all rooms are fully stocked with replacement towels and coffee.
2) Our Food & Beverage team - we are working on our breakfast offerings on an ongoing basis, ensuring that we are meeting and exceeding brand standards while adding a touch of individuality. Thank you for noticing that ours is above the standard of most Homewood Suites, we will continue to modify our breakfast based upon feedback like yours.
3) Our Front Desk team - As is the case with any new hotel opening, there is a considerable learning curve, especially for our Front Desk associates in becoming fully versed on our computer systems and various room types and locations. This training is ongoing, and of course every day their experience and confidence grows. I'm sure you'll see this on your next visit.

Thank you again, we look forward to welcoming you back!

A wonderful Hotel to stay; cleaniness to perfection and Staff excellent to deal with. Could not do enough to make our stay an experience and memorable one. Location excellent for the Downtown activities and we liked very much the 'personal parking' feature rather than valet. Cannot thank the Staff enough for making our stay very special
