“So great!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

We came to Halifax for medical purposes at the QE2, and stayed just across the road. we had to come down in a snow storm and got our room early in the morning. Free parking was free due to it being medical and for those who come down for medical reasons its cheaper to just walk over and $4.00 to get a cab back a lot less expensive than paying parking at the hospital. The staff is incredible, especially the front desk (Kathryn) it's great to see your staff genuinely happy to be at work and it showed in the hospitality...Keep up the great work, we'll be back for sure

Catherine and Kak

Room Tip: For now the rooms on the upper levels have been renovated and jusy lovely!!

This is the type of property that you want to check in to when you're tired and really just want a good night's sleep. Basic accommodations, a comfortable bed, exceptionally clean, an easy to see tv, lights that are easy to understand, a large alarm clock, and quiet HVAC. Everything worked perfectly. There are no frills, here, no marble vanities, and extras, but my goodness it works. The staff are fantastic, and the hotel delivered. Perfect for business, or a family. Romantic, no, but hey, this is Halifax!

Room Tip: I chose an Executive Floor room, big and comfortable.

We loved our two-day stay at the Atlantica. The location is perfect for getting around and the convenience of the underground parking couldn't be beat. Above all the service was excellent and we were certainly made to feel welcome. We would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Check around for rates and also, don't worry about being on the Quinpool Road side of the hotel...

This hotel was fantastic!! When u walk in there is a large fantastic christmas tree decorated nicely, my experience here It started with the most polite and friendly front desk clerk I have ever encountered. I believe his name was Danny. I felt like he actually enjoyed assisting us as well as enjoyed his job. He gave us a room upgrade and he also gave us a deal on underground parking! He gave us advice on where to go and on which day, looked things up on google as we went if he wasn't sure. I asked ALOT of questions and at no point did Danny seem anything but pleased to help :)

When we got to our room I was impressed again. Very spacious, spotless, nicely decorated. Comfortable bed! Beautiful robe laid out. Tasteful art work, and big TV. Star bucks coffee in the room, and TAZO teas.

Thank you for making our stay in Halifax easy and enjoyable!!

Room Tip: I bet they are all great, however rooms on higher floors facing the harbour could be asked for.

This was an average hotel in my opinion. The bathtub was full of rust and I was dubious about standing in it. The room service I ordered was not at all good. The Internet connection was not the greatest. The room itself was clean.

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.
