“Nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

Checked into the hotel at around 9:30. We booked through priceline and we receive a room with 2 double beds. Since it was our anniversary I asked if we could get 1 King bed and they did at no extra charge. The room is your typical room, nothing to complain against. The parking was an issue. We paid the $20 a night for parking, the first night we had a parking spot but the following night we couldn't get 1 and had to park in the parkade near the casino. I talked to the front desk and they refunded my parking for both nights.
The hotel itself is in a nice location of Halifax. It's downtown between the casino and the harbour so there lots of things to do. We walked up to the farmers market and then back along the harbour so there were lots of stores, food and etc.

Nice location on the Harbour front. Room was clean. The biggest complaint was that the noise all night long left you extremely tired as a good nights sleep was nearly impossible. The noise was generated by the road traffic at the front of the hotel which did subside later into the night. Most of the noise came from adjacent units were water was running, toilets were being flushed and doors were constantly closing even from 2:00am until we departed at 11:00am. A complaint at the front desk did get us a $20.00 discount but I would not endorse the hotel.
Also as an add on the furniture in the lobby was extremely well worn and filthy.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We are glad you enjoyed the cleanliness of your room, as well as our fantastic downtown Halifax location. So sorry to hear about the difficulty you experienced with the noise from outside and adjacent hotel rooms. When we are faced with problems that we cannot necessarily control (such as outside noise), sometimes the best solution is to be moved to a more quiet area of the hotel. Here at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront, we take great delight in making our valued Guests as comfortable as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you again for sharing your thoughts.

I have had an extended stay in Halifax due to personal and business issues. My daughter and I decided to stay here for our second stay in Halifax in a month as we had, had a horrible experience in another hotel.

We had gone for a walk on our first stay, and found this gem. We stayed here for five nights, in the concierge floor. It is a floor with a lounge, which serves breakfast, and hors d'oeuvres in the early hours. My daughter had just finished a summer program at Dal, so she was exhausted. I don't think she came out once to eat breakfast.

The housekeeping staff were superb, and accommodating, knowing full well that our daughter was too tired to get up and at em daily. The lounge is well worth the money if you do have a slower member of the family, who drinks tea at odd hours in the day. There is tea and coffee al day in the lounge.

The housekeeping staff leaves you with bottled water. Once we got a bottle of water that had already been opened, but that has happened at the other not so desireable hotel in Halifax-more than once.

The staff all over the hotel are wonderful, and the front desk staff are there to fulfill your every wish. I can't say enough about this hotel- it's close to all amenities; the premiers stayed at the hotel; the skins golfers were at this hotel. They had a proper concierge at this hotel.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We even did catch the Skins golf game in Glen Arbour.

I usually stay in this hotel once or twice a year for business purposes. It is a typical Marriott hotel in a great downtown location next to the waterfront. There are many shops and restaurants within walking distance.

From the moment we checked in to setting up a taxi to get us at 4:00 AM (early flight) when we left, we had nothing but a pampered experience. The staff left us alone until we needed them, then they jumped to our aid. Restaurant recommendations, transportation requests, what to see and where to go were handled by the staff with great aplomb. The rooms were typical Marriott (what else can I say).

If you want a wonderful place to stay in Halifax, this is it!! Right on the waterfront and easy walking distance to a lot of the attractions (Pier 21, Maritime museum etc). Rooms are spacious and clean - very well maintained. The staff were very accomodating and you could sense they genuinely wanted to help make your stay better.

My hubby arranged this stay for me as a treat for my 50th Birthday, since he couldn't be with me. The rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds were very very comfortable. The sound proofing was good, which is really needed in a downtown core. It happened that the Tall Ships were in that weekend and there were fireworks right near the hotel every night which were beautiful. As it turned out, Hubby suprised me by showing up!! Yea!
The only issue I had was that my husband made the arrangements under his name and when I went to check in I was told a few times that if wasn't with me, they couldn't check me in or even give me any information about the reservation. Exasperated, I asked her to just READ the reservation and once she found out he was an elite member and had indeed arranged it for my birthday things were okay.
Oh...and the birthday cake delivered to my room by room service was SO rich and chocolatey! YUM.

Room Tip: The Harbour side costs a bit more, but the veiw is lovely.
