“Terrible parking”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

A very average hotel, could use a renovation as it is starting to get a lite grungy
If you har an over size vehicle (6') you have to park up the street at the hospital. Parking at the hotel for smaller vehicles is also limited and does get full.
Given the parking situation other choices available, I won't be staying here in the future.

This was my first stay at the Atlantica. I would highly recommend. The limo shuttle service was excellent. The concierge and the front desk staff all were great. They were prompt, courteous and helpful. Just a minor warning the underground parking only is 6'. But they found parking for my SUV.

If you are traveling with a pet to Halifax, this is the place to stay. I don't think our greyhound wanted to leave. The young, professional and pet loving lady at the front desk greeted us very pleasantly. Our dog not only got a goodie bag but a nice large fluffy bed too! All this at no extra charge.

We stay in Halifax a lot... and this was out first time at the Atlantica. We got it via hotwire for a very low price - so it was worth it. The desk/hotel staff was very helpful, and happily brought us glasses and a bottle opener/corkscrew when requested.

The rooms were a touch on the dated side- but not so-much-so that it was a problem. Bed was comfortable, and the room was clean.

Compared to some of the other hotels we've stayed at in the past - this one was the farthest away from the main downtown area most people are visiting. It's a bit of a walk, but not unbearable.

Overall the hotel was nice, and the staff friendly.

Nice sized pool with shallow wading pool for younger children, no adults only swim times though. The leisure area also includes a sauna, hot tub and spot to work out.

The room seemed relatively well kept and the bed was comfortable.

We did not dine at the resturant.

We were not at all satisfied with the parking fiasco we encountered. The hotel was holding a dance for Halifax's pride week. We returned from a short trip out for supper to be greeted by a security guard who told us parking was full. We informed him we we're staying at the hotel and showed him our parking pass. He reassured us that parking was full and told us that if we brought the car back around 1am after the event spots may have opened up. We had to park a block away, and walk to the hotel. We notified the front desk, they were polite, but nothing was done for us.

We do not travel often and this was a weekend away for us. Having to find a parking spot on the street and hope not to get ticketed was not what we were expecting. We were relatively pleased with the accommodations, but this soured our experience, guests who are staying in the hotel should come first!

Reception staff are notably very welcoming and extremely helpful.

Our room was a bit tired and had a musty aroma.

Per we, hotel is fine but it is not a downtown hotel by any means. It is a good 20 min trek in the July heat to the waterfront.

The staff at the Atlantica made my stay pleasant not the hotel , the n street noise or the over priced and small portioned food. The concierge ( Damarco ) made me feel at home. Crystal my room attendant made sure my room was clean and well stocked at all time.

Thanks to both of these employees.
