We visited to move our son home and chose the Residence Inn due to amenities and proximity. From the time we arrived we felt welcomed and the staff went out of their way to respond to any questions or requests. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite due to the construction across the street but we were up early...

You can't beat the location, but the bed was absolutely horrible. My wife and I stayed there on a weekend and overall, we liked the hotel. It is well run, really great staff, quiet room and a great location, but the bed was overly hard and it transmitted ever single movement either of us made, completely disrupting sleep for both...

Thank you TDHLAW for your feedback. I am sorry to see that what should have been a great stay for you and your wife was so greatly affected by the bed in your suite.

The included breakfast buffet was...

Residence Inn is situated near many restaurants plus Neptune Theatre. The Central Library is a short walk. The parking is easy to access, underground and heated. There is a cost of $19, which is pretty well the going rate for parking in Halifax. Staff was generous with their time and very helpful. The room was comfortable, with blackout curtains which...

Lovely room. Very spacious and modern. Staff were very friendly. Check in was painless. Had a good night's sleep. Perfect location for a night out on the town with my wife. The buffet breakfast was pretty good. I would stay here again.

Stayed here for 5 days on a business trip and quite enjoyed it. Very clean and well-kept business, helpful staff, nice breakfast and Mon/Tues grill/greet on the main floor. Basement garage is very handy and will steam up your glasses after coming in from the cold! There are two roll up doors actuated with your room card from the outside...
