“great hotel, fantastic location!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

This is a large hotel, right on the waterfront and beside the Historic district. Staff are extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. Rooms well furnished, spacious and very well maintained.

My only quibble is that their restaurant in the lobby area has the look and feel of a space in an airport - not good ambiance at all, and closed off from any kind of view.

Would happily stay again.

I am having a hard time thinking of a single bad thing to say about this hotel. I used priceline to bid and got a great deal in August for a Wednesday and Thursday stay. The hotel is clean, free Wifi, and there's a Starbucks inside. The only negative is that the front-desk staff had trouble enabling our keys for the parking garage, which was a hassle which we got resolved. Our flight brought us in late, but we were able to get a nice grilled fish meal with a beer at the bar at 11:30pm.

Clean, comfortable, convenient, the pool is a nice perk if you have kids and the staff was helpful and good natured. The waterfront itself had a ton to do and I never even got in my car once I arrived, but it was not a bargain by any stretch.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the waterfront to the south are going to be noisy. I requested earplugs and slept fine...

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. The hotel's location and amenties are certainly selling points for the property. Hotel rates do go up in the summer months throughout the downtown. Hopefully you may return and stay in our off season where there some packages and rates that would appeal.

The hotel was clean, good service, good breakfast. Was in for business, so as a business traveler, I was completely satisfied. The best part, though, was waking up at 6 am and going onto the patio to watch the sunrise. Worth every penny staying there to see such a wonder.

This is a routine full service hotel; it is not exceptional. The physical facilities are in good shape; however, the staff seems to believe that friendliness is a substitute for efficiency. I endured a very long wait at check-in and breakfast service was slow apparently due to lack of staff, which was odd since the hotel was full and they should have been able to anticipate food service demand. One exceptional feature is the fitness center, which is large and contains a variety and large quantity of cardio and weight machines. Location is good, right on the waterfront with easy access to the boardwalk and also to downtown establishments and features an enclosed walkway to the casino.
BOTTOM LINE: Likely to find better value at other properties in Halifax, but this is fine if one is attending an event at the hotel or finds a good rate.

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront. It is our goal to ensure that all our guests have an enjoyable stay and return. I see that we unfortunately did not meet yours or our expectations and I do apologize. As we move towards the end of the summer season, there is a trend in staffing levels that presents some challenges as students head back to university. We continuously hire year round and are dedicated to finding the best associates to ensure our guests are well looked after. I was pleased to see in your review that you enjoyed our hotel and its facilities, the fitness center recently had a few upgrades with some new equipment to add to the elliptical and treadmills that are always popular. I do hope that you will stay with us again in the future and appreciate your feedback.

Stayed two days in August 2014. Clean hotel with excellent service. Comfy bed. Concierge suite was great! Friendly locals, great restaurants. So much to do - Peggy's cove, Mahone Bay, Lunenberg, all a nice drive's distance. Loved Halifax! Can't wait to return.

As a business traveler this was a great choice: lovely waterfront location with easy access to all the downtown amenities, genuinely nice service, good sized rooms, and overall updated feel to the hotel. The gym was great - lots of cardio machines, a decent set of weight machines and free weights. So much better than those tiny, dinky rooms that so many hotels stuff with a few cardio machines and a bench or one machine and then call a "gym". I haven't stayed in hotels in Halifax in years, so can't properly compare to the others on option, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if/when I am back in the city.
