was about 25 min from airport and $65 fair. The view was beautiful and I was right on the warf. I was walking distance from little unique boutiques and to stores like lulu lemon, roots, etc. $12 taxi to Halifax mall. The staff was friendly and helpful. Local bars and live entertainment literally right beside hotel.

This hotel is everything you would expect from a Marriott. The check-in was efficient and friendly. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped, there was an iron, coffee/tea maker, comfy chair and comfortable bed. WIFI is free for Marriott points reward members, it worked fine for email and browsing. The paid WIFI upgrade is not necessary for basic work....

I was here for a 2 day convention so we had a group rate. I upgraded my room and had corner room (room 499) with two sets of windows and water views. Such a nice room. It had a kingsized bed, 2 comfortable chairs with footstool and table and a desk where I could sit in the morning on my...

Our corner view rooms certainly provide a spectacular view of the harbour and we are so happy that you were able to find time during your conference to sit back, relax and enjoy it. As for transportation to the airport, we do offer a shuttle service, but at this point in time only in the busier summer months; typically between...

This hotel has everything an hotel of this category would have. The place was clean and very quiet. You have to try the seafood chowder in the hotel restaurant!!! A+++ The hotel is very close to a casino and the ferry to cross the bay.

I am so happy to hear that you had the opportunity to try Harbourstone's seafood chowder. It's truly an iconic dish; each piping hot bowl made to order! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent experience with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

The hotel isn't always available to me when I travel on business, but whenever I can I stay there. The rooms are lovely and spacious (it doesn't bother me that I really never get harbourview). The location is well placed, next to the restaurants of the historic properties, and I discovered on my last visit the convenience of the pedway...

Very good service in a great location on the Harbourfront Boardwalk. We asked to be upgraded to a Harbourview room and they accomodated us. It was very interesting watching the Canadian Forces ships come and go. Room service had excellent food and it was always delivered at the set time. Easy walk to downtown locations. Excellent Conference facilities. Friendly staff.

Perfect for a birthday weekend. From the Interlude Spa that's part of the hotel (great for manicures or a massage), to the Casino being right there, to the lovely view of the water - this is an ideal place to stay in Halifax. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Would definitely stay...

We booked into this hotel for 3 weekend nights to enjoy a city break in Halifax in mid-November. Located on the waterfront on the boardwalk in the downtown area, the hotel sports a sleek and modern interior look. For its size, there is a surprising lack of seating in the lobby save for a small 4-chair television viewing area behind...

Thank you for taking the time to share this detailed review of our property. Your comments will surely help assist other travelers when making the decision for accommodations in downtown Halifax. For future bookings, I definitely recommend booking a water view property at the time of reservation to avoid disappointment. As we only have a limited number of each room...

Nice hotel, with a great location. The bar was good, with a nice selection of local brews. very friendly staff. I was here for a conference, and my wife joined me over the weekend. You can walk out and enjoy the boardwalk, or just hit the Lower Deck for a beer.

Delighted to hear you had a wonderful stay while attending a conference and that your wife was able to join you for a fun weekend in Halifax. We are very fortunate to be located directly on the Halifax Boardwalk and central to many craft beer opportunities to explore. I look forward to welcoming you both back again in the future.

Spent two nights here for a conference. Friendly staff, clean rooms and a great location right on the water. Great boardwalk and walking distance to lots of restaurants, pubs and sight seeing. It is a nice quite hotel with comfy beds. FYI, it’s about 30 minutes from the airport.
