Thank you wiggery for being "very happy". We are happy that you were happy and we hope to host you again very soon. Thank you for taking the time to share.
This is not a 5 star hotel. The décor and restaurant are decidedly ‘middle of the road’.
The location is ideal. The hotel is located practically at the cross roads of Spring Garden Road and Barrington Street - the center of the Halifax universe. You can walk to almost anything in 10 minutes. Ironically it’s better located than all of the 5 start hotels that are further away from many of the city’s attractions.
The room was clean and everything worked.
The Wifi High Speed Internet was free and easy to access. No goofy passwords or complex interfaces.
The bathroom was clean and functional, but not fancy. The bed and bedding was good quality.
The parking was convenient, though I often found myself parking in the last available spot (I always found a spot, but I had to get ‘creative” on two occasions when I arrived at the hotel late in the evening).
My wife and I made frequent use of the roof top exercise facility which has everything you need in a spacious facility with a fantastic view of the city.
The free breakfast was very reasonable for a hotel at this level.
The staff is very well trained and remarkably responsive. I had frequent dealings with the staff, as we stayed for a week on a business/leisure trip. I would recommend any of these people for work in a 5 star hotel.
I will definitely return to this hotel the next time I visit Halifax.
I wasn't sure how we were doing in your review CrisWorth until the end. Thank you for your positive feedback. We take a lot of pride what we do and your review will be posted in the lunchroom for all of us to be proud of. We hope to welcome you back someday soon.
Cambridge Suites in Halifax NS had gone far beyond our expecttaions making our stay fantastic. They allowed our pet , and even gave dog treats , Provided adjustments to room at no extra charge , Gave us umbrellas for a walk . Voucher for Dinning out .
Top notch service . Ask for Scott of Carrie !!!! You will be very pleased!!!
We even saw the Navel Submarine entering Halifax Harbour from our room window
Hi donald81 (& Lili) and thank you for posting a review of our property. We do have some fantastic packages from time to time and I am glad you took advantage of one. The Naval Centennial has been an amazing event for our city and we have met some pretty cool people (and pets) because of it - Thanks again
I've been to Halifax before in 2007 & stayed at the Citadel Hotel (what a nightmare that was). But for the Cambridge all I have to say is this place is the best hotel in Halifax in my opinion. It's close to downtown, has lots of restaurants nearby & is near Citadel Hill. The price is great for the quality of the rooms. Hotel restaurant (Dofsky's) has good food too & it's not overpriced like some hotels. Also like that the business centre computers had fast internet. Staff were all polite, efficient & courteous. I have to say that Casey was amazing to us. He found out we would be there for our 1st anniversary & said he would see what he could do for us. We got a suite room with king bed when we came back after our bus tour. We'll definitely recommend this hotel to all our friends, family & co-workers. Loved it!
Hi muzicmonster and thank you for reviewing our hotel. I am glad you enjoyed your visit with us and we hope to see you in 2013 if your pattern of visiting our city every three years stays intact. Thank you.
We had booked this hotel for the start of our holiday. We loved it so much that we booked our last night there as well. The hotel is centrally located to all the best local restaurants, only two blocks away. (I would recommend the Five Fishermen restaurant, brilliant) The Citidal and and the harbour and other sights are a short easy walk away. The suites are very spacious and well presented. The breakfasts are very good. The staff were always very helpful. Just be aware that Halifax is on a hill, so walking to the harbour is down hill, only six blocks, a short distance, but it is a steep walk back. This is still a hotel to stay at for its location, suites and staff. Well recommended
You are just what the doctor ordered oracleviking - thank you for your positive comments. I am glad you enjoyed your visit with us and if Halifax is on your mind/plans again it would be our pleasure to welcome you back with open arms. We hope to see you soon. Thank you.
Confused as to why I wrote a review earlier and it did not post. However, I will try again to make my point. This hotel, by all outward appearances is lovely and I am sure guests truly do enjoy their stay here. However, a true judge of a hotel is how they handle situations when they arise. In my case they FAILED miserably. A few guests in the next room proceded to make enough noise to cause half of the floor to awaken. Three times we called and were told that the people in the room we not "taking the request seriously". So after changing our room at 11pm and trying to console another guest (who had already been moved once already from another floor), it still persisted. Here is an idea for you Cambridge...throw the offenders OUT! Cant do it, then call the police! Sure this hotel looks nice but why stay somewhere that cant handle the simplist of problems. Why would you? Go somewhere else! Also, dont book a room that is on a low floor that faces the back of the hotel. There is not only a underground parking facility but a nightclub that "booms, booms" till the wee hours!
Good morning NCKari. It is unfortunate that, on occasion, some guests lack consideration for others. I am sorry to you had to experience this during your stay with us. I will discuss the details of your situation with our Night team so we can use your feedback to improve how we respond to future situations that may be similar - my hope is that there wouldn't be any but there will always be people who do not respect others. I am sorry this situation happened to you because I believe otherwise we would have been a good match for each other.
