“Staff, Locale, Comfort = Very Special Stay!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Right from check-in the staff were friendly and efficient. Though the hotel was almost full when we arrived, we were given the King Studio we booked on a lower floor, with a promise of a move up when one became available. Discovering that our room door ajar, because it would not close completely without a pull, the desk clerk came immediately to inspect that everything was in order. Two days the later, the cleaning staff left the door in the same state. Craig jumped immediately to action, making sure first that our belongings had not been touched, then taking us on a tour of 8th floor rooms, which we were welcome to choose from. We spent the remainder of our stay in a beautiful two room suite, complete with a spectacular view of the harbour.
Every member of the Radisson staff were forthcoming knowledgeable and helpful information about the city. The hotel location, as far as we were concerned, could not have been better. Five minute walk to main area of the pier. A short climb up Sackville St. to the Argyle St. pub scene, and a lovely sandwich shop for breakfast directly across the street called 'As You Like It'.
The entire Radisson staff made us welcome and comfortable. Keep up the very high standards.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer the best views of the Halifax Harbour

Thank you TorontoRaider for your visit and review. It is great to hear that your stay was 'very special'. I apologize for the door issue you encountered and I can assure you this is not the norm, as the safety and security of our guests and staff is our number one priority. I am pleased we were able to resolve this matter to your satisfaction. On behalf of the management and staff at the Radisson Suite Halifax we would also like to thank you also for your praise and we look forward to hosting and seeing you again.

All the best,

Brand new renovation, clean and THE FRIENDLIEST, MOST HELPFUL staff we've ever met at any hotel. Concierge Aron was knowledgable and conscientious, Jessica at the reception desk made us feel welcome. Thanks to all the staff for giving us an A+ stay :)

I stayed at the Radisson Suite Hotel in Halifax, NS on business in late September 2013. In a word, this hotel is fantastic. It has a very modern look and feel, and the suites are both stylish and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make my stay and that of my colleagues very enjoyable. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel if you are in the Halifax area!

Three co-workers and myself stayed at the Radisson Sept21 to 25 for a Critical Care Nursing conference.The experience was amazing..the room beautiful the shower great View to Harbor fantastic I enjoyed watching from my room the Cruise ships sailing in and other activities in the waterfront.We were very well looked after by the staff from the moment we checked in to time we left..Trevor the Cioncierge was extremely nice and helpful to us he also assisted to arrange a tour to Peggys Cove and around Halifax. which was a great experience. What a pleasant and lovely man Trevor certainly does his job very well I sure hope his Boss compensates him really well.The complimentary coffee ,apple and fruit bar in the lobby was appreciated to start the mornings.I would go back to the Radisson in a heart beat and highly recommend this hotel to everyone.Great location. everything a stones throw from this hotel be it the museum,waterfront ,best bars and resturants and shopping the convention centre and many more.Left there with memorable and happy experiences. and Thank you again Trevor.

We recently explored the Maritimes, beginning and ending our vacation in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We stayed at the Radisson both times and totally enjoyed the experience. The rooms were great, spotless and modern, and being centrally located was very important to us. We were able to explore on foot so many of the sites that make Halifax so special. But it was the staff that makes me want to comment. The reception staff along with our two favourite concierges, Trevor and Aron, made the stay exceptional. Friendly and witty, they helped us plan our vacation route, using their knowledge of the area, and it worked out perfectly! Thank you all for some great memories!
