“Warm Reception at Delta Barrington”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2007

We loved the Delta Barrington! Most of the staff went out of their way to help us. We upgraded to a Signature Club room, and highly recommend it because we heard the regular rooms are on the small side. Signature Club members enjoy a complimentary breakfast.

I have stayed at many Delta hotels and the Barrington keeps up the quality that this chain expects. The front desk staff are very courteous and helpfull.
If I have any complaints, I do have to say that the rooms are getting a bit old and tired. Some wallpaper is starting to peel off the walls. Having stayed in all the various rooms, there seems to be no difference among them with the exception of Signature rooms.The Signature Club rooms are very nice, but as said before, the hotel needs to spend as much attention to their other rooms as well.

  • Liked — location
  • Disliked — some of the rooms need updating - especially the rooms with Murphy beds!

Stayed two nights Had a king room on the signature floor with a view of Barrington Street.

Delta Privilege ensured a sub-60 second check in. The room was comfortable, and the staff were hospitable and friendly. Didn't partake of the restaurants at the hotel, but here's a tip - skip breakfast at the hotel restaurant, and walk out the back door to Sam's Coffee place - you can eat for 1/4 the price of what you pay on the premises.

Bathroom in the room was ok; though the tub was very shallow and small. The internet didn't work very well, and $9.95/24 hours is a rip off when most Canadian hotels provide it for free.

Would stay here again, basically any soul-less business hotel is just that, and this one fits the bill just fine.

  • Liked — Location, friendliness of staff.
  • Disliked — No character.

The Delta Barrington is centrally located in Halifax, but the property shares the street (Barrington) with another Delta right across the road so one may end up in the wrong property. Apparently, the staff have experience with just such an occurence and are happy to show you the way to the connecting mall.

The hotel itself is clean and friendly, although the rooms are quite small. The TV could be bigger as well. On another note the tiny window offers liittle view of what little there is to see. Furtehrmore, parking is not complimentary and may cost as much as $19 per night for the facility across the street.

On another note the hotel hosts a genrous buffet breakfast and at $149 per night offers free Internet access in its premium rooms.

Due to a mix up on our part we needed a hotel for one night before checking into the hotel we had originally booked. I found the Delta Barrington on the internet, called them and explained the problem. They gave us a great rate on the club room level. We arrived late, but I had called ahead to tell them and the doorman was their to meet us, check in was easy and the bar was just across the lobby. The room was a little on the small side, but very comfortable and included a continental breakfast. The hotel is in a great a location and connected to the covered walkways that take you the waterfront and the casino. We stayed five days in Halifax and I could have easily spent all of them at this hotel. I think it's a real find.

  • Liked — Convenience
  • Disliked — We couldn't stay longer.
  • Tips/Secrets — Always call ahead to make sure your reservation is still good, especially if you are going to be late.

My wife and I spent our second wedding anniversary at the Delta Barrington, and we were rather disappointed with it. For starters, they did not have any record of the reservation I had made days earlier; and when I produced the confirmation number, they seemed to doubt that I had actually reserved a room. I had ordered one of the most expensive rooms with a king-size bed, but because of the reservation mix-up, we were given a room with what appeared to be a small queen or maybe even a double. Although turndown service is not important to us, they only did it one of the two evenings we were there. I felt this was a bit shoddy on their part. There were many other trivial things that occured which, on their own are not worth mentioning here, but altogether they made for a frustrating stay. This hotel does have its strengths, but if we were ever to return, they would have to give us better service than what we experienced on this trip.

We stayed at this hotel on the first night of our honeymoon. They upgraded us to a better room and left a big silver platter of chocolate strawberries on our bed. The hotel is really handy for downtown and the rooms are spacious. The staff were great.
