“Don't valet park your car!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

My husband and I stayed here one night on the tail end of our honey moon, got a call not even an hour after being there that the valet had smashed our SUV! We are still dealing with their insurance to have it fixed! A month later and after getting it appraised at 2 different spots on our own time , now they are sending their own appraiser. We only have one car so this has been beyond an inconvenience at this point! All they did was comp our parking. Well thanks for the 20 dollars back and putting a huge dent so to speak in our honeymoon. Needless to say we will never be back!

Looks can be deceiving. From the outside the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel looks enticing with an architecturally pleasing stone/concrete siding topped with a copper-green roof that matches the Halifax waterfront perfectly. The inside- well-- it is just your standard Marriott. Not necessarily bad mind you, just standard. Things are in good shape and reasonably well maintained, though for what appears to be a new hotel some furnishings are more worn than one would anticipate. Beds are adequate and staffing and service are adequate/functional. Food is an unknown since all our meals were out of the hotel. Had we stayed longer, perhaps the experience would be better---or perhaps not. Again, it was pretty much your standard Marriott and that is what you should expect.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view room (but double check to make sure it actually gets booked)

This is one of the most excelent experience in hotels i havge been in to.
every one have a wonderfull tread, big smiles, and super service !!
The valet people, reception, restaurant, conserge and every one are excellente persons.
food on morning is great, for the valet, you call from your room and after no more than 3 to 5 minutes, you have your car infront, and even do that you dont tip because you dont have chaence or what ever, they dont put you a dog face !!
walking distance you have, bars, restaurants, and little shops, if you like a bigger mall, is no more than 10 minutes away.
thank you to every body and keep doing excellent work.

We booked with a 3rd party.. and when we got to the hotel decided to upgrade to a harbour view room.. best decision we ever made. Our room was amazing.. the bed felt like sleeping on a cloud. The view was spectacular. We have never encountered warm, welcoming, friendly staff as amazing as at this Marriott. Every staff person we met made us feel special, welcomed.. we felt like we were in a dream the 3 days/nights we spent there.. and the location.. could not be any more perfect.

Room Tip: spend the extra $$ on a harbour front room, you won't regret it.

The Mariott Harbourfront is a very well appointed hotel. It's lobby is spacious and comfortable. The breakfast we enjoyed at the restaurant was delicious. Our room was very comfortable and the bed one of the most comfortable I have slept in away from home. The staff were fantastic, extremely helpful when we needed to check our flight home ( which was changed on us). The location is great for sightseeing and shopping too!

What a wonderful stay. Open lobby is welcoming. Rooms are quiet! Long hallway and I do not hear noise from neighbors or any hallway noise. In my two previous hotels this week - Westin in Halifax and Lynwood in Baddeck - thin walls were an issue and made my stay especially unpleasant. Room is spacious and nicely furnished here. View of harbor is a sideview and not as nice as view from Westin. Marriott is on the water while Westin sits off water. Water on my window at Marriott but window doesn't seem dirty like at Westin. Much more privacy with Westin view as Marriott view directly of Saltys and boardwalk. Location on boardwalk is so wonderful. Hotel bar and restaurant not very busy, similiar to Westin...most likely boardwalk entices everyone away. Very very nice spa - got an excellent massage at a good price from someone who knew what he was doing. Huge gym.

Marriott about $55 more per night for comparable rooms with view. Absolutely worth it for me.

This is the hotel I will return to if I return to Halifax. Great city, great hotel location, very very comfortable stay undisturbed by others staying in neighboring rooms. Should not live with regrets but wish I had stayed here all week...next time.

I visit Halifax four to six times a year on business and stay here about half of the time.The property has just gone through major upgrades to its public areas with a new internet cafe, restaurant, lobby and meeting rooms. The improvements were much needed but resulted in the hotel losing its pub. The good news is The Lower Deck Pub is literally a stones throw away. The hotel also has a Starbucks on premises with a seating area. The rooms are a bit hit and miss depending on your luck. They are all very clean but some are starting to show their age and need a little TLC. No matter the reason for your visit, you can't beat the location.
