A very well-located property, it's a case of truth in naming, right on the waterfront. However be aware that due to the configuration of the building only a minimum of rooms will actually provide harbor views, the next-best thing are those overlooking the Historic Properties, but by far the majority will look out to nearby office buildings, across to the other wing of the hotel, or over the freeway exit.
Was there attending a business meeting and the facilities were quite good for our needs. From what they told me at the front desk, they have recently switched their WiFi to complimentary service which is a great convenience for the business traveler, however the room lacks another detail I prefer in business hotels, which is a room safe. Being a Silver level member in Marriott Rewards gets you a freebie at the Starbucks so you don't have to feel odd getting something from there whebn there's a Tim Horton down the block.
On my time off from business, the location made for ease in exploring the waterfront and its attractions, which is a very good thing when visiting a place like Halifax. Elevated covered walkways connect to Casino Nova Scotia and across the freeway to the business/shopping district. The on-site pub seems to have a quite lively scene on the weekend and the entire surrounding area certainly does, so as others have mentioned it can get a bit noisy weekend late nights. The hotel does seem to alternate between primarily tourists on weekends and more of a business-meeting crowd during the workweek.
The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed for its price class but nothing to knock you back, either. The service was up to expected Marriott standards, but it's the site location and the access to the Halifax downtown that are this property's outstanding strengths.
