Spent two nights here. Going in, we understood that this was a Marriott and thus, did not have any grand illusions that this was going to be a Four Seasons: the rooms were the typical well-worn institutional grade hotel - doused with over fragranced chemical cleaners, furnished with squishy beds, imperfectly cleaned nooks and crannies, etc... Despite the price, this was all fine. Our disappointment came from paying a premium for a room that they billed as a 'premium Harbour View,' which did not overlook a harbor; instead, we found ourselves with a view of the boardwalk, including two outdoor restaurants and an ice cream stand - no conducive to a good night sleep if you're there on a Friday/Saturday as we were. The view was actually comical - if you pressed your head against the window (and there was evidence on the pane of the prior guest doing such) and craned your neck, you could catch a glimpse of the harbor. When I asked if we had mistakenly ended up in the wrong category, you would have thought my question was insane - no recognition that one might expect a harbor view room to have a harbor view. Anyway, Halifax is a great city, this hotel is pretty well situated, it's just a shame that they feel the need to over stretch on marketing/pricing their rooms. Would be great if there were a better option in Halifax, but our research suggested this was the best in town.
