Helpful and welcoming bellman and front desk staff. My luggage was in my room by the time I'd returned my hire car - I wasn't expecting that! Assigned a room on the Concierge level (as booked) right at the end of the corridor with great views straight out across the harbour from the main window and across the city from a second window elsewhere in the room. Very clean and well-appointed room. Bed was comfortable, but there were 11 (!!) assorted cushions and pillows on it. Most of them need to go somewhere before you can get into the bed!!! :-) Hotel well situated just off of the main drag of the city centre - a pleasant stroll along the boardwalk or down the street.

Very friendly staff greeted me each time I walked through reception. Concierge lounge was a very quiet and relaxing place to have a light snack and some drinks instead of dinner, as well as a basic (by Canadian standards) breakfast which I found more than adequate. The lounge was staffed by very friendly employees. Wifi as part of room package worked well.

Good pool, although strange way into it, especially past pool-view rooms. Hotel architecture much more attractive than many anonymous hotel tower blocks.

Highly recommended - would return without a doubt.

The Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel made our night out in Halifax. Very clean and modern rooms, staff were very helpful and made our stay a very enjoyable one. Great downtown location close to all amenities. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed two nights room was big and clean with standard Marriott fittings. Little of any nod to being in a spectacular location. Bar and restaurant bit boring but plenty of choice in this microbrew mecca

Hotel is right downtown, walking distance to almost everything, very nice patio on the water. The room we had was a corner room facing the harbour, was a good size with a great view.

I stayed at the Harbourfront Marriott this summer as was very impressed with the hotel. It is a first class hotel with nice large clean rooms and comfortable beds. Large screen TV in the rooms and a very nice pool/hot tube area. The location is great being in the heart of downtown Halifax with a great lounge right in the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great hotel in Halifax.

We stayed at the Marriott for a conference this Spring. The hotel is well-appointed and very clean. This is a very good conference/tourist hotel as it is close to everything and very professionally run. However, little things were annoying - no fridge in the room for instance. The most annoying thing for the traveller is no "free' internet in the room - it costs about $13/day extra. Not a big deal if you have an expense account. The thing is...most other hotels have free WiFi or wired high-speed internet - even other Marriotts. There is a trick however. There is free WiFi in the lobby, but you have to get a code from the front desk. With that code you can access WiFi pretty much throughout the hotel, including guest rooms. Most folks at our conference figured this out pretty quickly - a good thing to know.
