“Great location”
Reviewed 12 August 2012 via mobile

Great service, the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The location is central to most major attractions in Halifax. I'm glad I wasn't planning on sleeping in as the hotel is renovating and construction started at 8am. Not a major thing but I'm curious as to why they would renovate in the middle of their busy season.

The hotel site did not mention the construction when were searched for hotels afew days ago. When we arrived they mentioned work in the entrance way-this one will see as they arrive- no problem. The concern was the pounding on pipes and hammering that began at 7 AM the next morning!! When we phoned down they just brushed us off, comment was I guess it is some construction. Throughout the day the workers have sat quietly at different times and one has to wonder why the " work" had to start at that hour. Usually hotels try to make guests feel welcome, this hotel does not seem to be striving for that image.

Room Tip: Not sure what to suggest, once I had booked using the internet I did phone directly and even at that...

Hello from Delta Barrington,

Thank you for choosing us on your recent stay. I am sorry to hear of this construction disturbance you experienced during your stay. We do have notice alerts posted on our home page and our reservation agents are up to date on the project. That being said it is difficult to update property copy on third party sites. Again I am very sorry for your experience... not what you would have expected nor what we wanted to provide.

I am hoping you maybe willing to contact me (email below) as I would like to attempt to bring a positive closure to your stay.

I look forward in hearing from you.

Very Best,

Donnie MacDonald

We stayed here for a wedding that was in the area. Although the location was great, we were a little baffled when we walked in to no front desk, because everything is being updated. The noice was crazy, but not much you can do when they are trying to update. We didn't get discounts, but were offered a free breakfast, which in fact was very good. The rooms are outdated, but the beds were still comfortable and the room was fairly clean (needs new carpets)

Room Tip: try and get a room on the 3rd floor where they offer free Starbucks coffee and tea.

Great small hotel, clean, friendly and in a great location. We walked to Historic Properties, the boardwalk and may other attractions. The staff were very helpful. Only disappointment was that in Halifax you had to be over 19 even to sit in a bar after 9pm.

Room Tip: Any room works. Few amenities but a nice place

My wife and I stayed there for 2 nights. Had an awesome time! Staff was very friendly. They were very helpful in giving us directions. The room is great! Clean, well-maintained and we had a good view of the market.

We stayed for 4 nights only. There was no front lobby because the hotel is under construction. You walk into a wall of curtains which leads to elevators. Considering the condition and the noise from the construction, the rate for this hotel should have been reduced. It was ok for a short visit but I have no intention of returning. Parking is a major issue at this hotel. We only needed parking from 8 am to 10 am and the rate at the hotel was $20/day. We would alarm the clock and feed the meter rather than pay such a high fee. It does have free internet but we did notice a poster in the elevator that indicated this was for a limited time. Overall, there is no attraction to this hotel with so many other options available within walking distance.

Room Tip: The bed was comfortable but we paid the extra to upgrade and get a king size bed.

Hello from Delta Barrington,

Thank you for staying with us on your recent Halifax trip. You are right there are many reputable hotels in Halifax and we believe to be part of that group. Our current lobby and restaurant renovations while very exciting we do understand can be an inconvenience at times. We are working daily with the contractors to ensure we are providing the best possible environment for our guests.

I am hoping you may be willing to connect with me (email below) as we would like to regain your trust and make up for missing the mark on this stay.

Best,

Donnie MacDonald

Overall, I didn't love it here.

When I got to my room, it smelled musty and my bathroom door had a hard time closing. The air conditioner was on full blast, so I was instantly freezing cold.There is construction going on right now in the lobby and since I was on the first floor, it was very noisy and distracting, especially when I needed to work in my room. The room itself is average.

Positives: the staff here is very nice and accommodating and the location is great.
