“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

The Atlantica was very suitable for our trip. They have a full business centre in the lobby with two computers, internet and printers. The only thing I could have used and missed was a scanner.

My room was on the tenth floor and had partial views of the park and office buildings across the street. I had excellent internet, but a colleague staying a few doors down said his internet was intermittent.

The continental breakfast ($11 - included with our rooms) was a good spread: toast, bagels, oatmeal, cold cereals, fruit, yogurt & granola, pastries, cheese, tea/coffee. On the last day I upgraded to the hot breakfast, which was only an extra $4, for eggs, bacon/sausage, and hashbrowns.

The pool was nice - long enough to do some laps - and had an excellent hot tub. The fitness centre is small but adequate - 2 treadmills, an elliptical, a stationary bike, free weights, and a fitness unit. The only downside to the fitness room is that it is down a long hallway from the elevators, past guest rooms on one side and board rooms on the other. There are change rooms in the fitness centre, so I'd suggest bringing a small gym bag to avoid walking past corporate meetings in your gym clothes.

It was an easy 15 min walk to downtown pubs and shops, and there are drugstores, restaurants, and coffee shops just behind the hotel on Quinpool Rd.

There is underground parking at $17 a day. The parking lot is very narrow and hard to manoeuvre with a larger vehicle like a minivan. It was usually very full, but there were often spaces on the lowest level.

Generally very good service and hospitality from the staff. A nice clean, bright, well kept-up hotel.

I booked through the surprise me function on yahoo and paid a very reasonable price for a double room. The hotel is downtown, but somewhat off-centre, closer to the hospital than to the main tourist drag, but perfect for my business meetings. The staff was friendly and helpful and the price of the room included free shuttle service to my meeting place, a pleasant surprise. Breakfast is expensive as downtown hotel breakfasts tend to be, but I was able to find something quite suitable nearby. One criticism? The suggestion to eat at Curry Village, definitely not a restaurant to recommend.

Stayed downtown Hfx for office Christmas party. Great location and the staff is awesome. Very comfortable rooms at reasonable price. We had drinks in the bar at the window overlooking the Commons which was really cool.

I stay here very often. The staff and location are great! But Wifi is terrible! In this day and age they need to bring their internet up to speed. Also the heating unit doesn't keep your room at a comfortable temperature. It's either running all the time or you can turn it off and have no heat or a/c. The rooms are quite clean. Although you can see dust all over the lamps etc.

Room Tip: Fridges are not in most rooms. But you can request one at the front desk.

The room and service was great but the room location wasn't. I was just by the elevator and the window was by the corner of Robbie St and Quinpool Rd and had hard time to sleep throughout the nigh because of the the traffic and elevator noise. So when making a reservation ask for your room at the opposite side of Quinpool Rd which means it would be along Pepperell St and the furthest from Robbie St. If you do that you'll have a much better night sleep.

I had booked with other city hotels and took my little dog with us. I reserved a room to go to our Staff Christmas party in the city. I was assured this was a pet friendly hotel. The night before check in I was told we couldn't leave our dog unattended.How do people stay at a hotel and go out to dinner? Do they have a pet friendly dining room ?It was so disappointing and ruined our Christmas party at such short notice as we had to make alternate arrangements for our dog.I tried calling the front desk on 3 occassions and had to go down to the desk as no one answered the phone.

Room Tip: Don't bother with an upgrade it is an older hotel and all rooms are about the same. The phone c...
