This was my first time at this location as I usually stay at the Delta. I do spend a lot of time on the road and I have very good rates at the latter but this time around, I was able to have a competitive rate from this hotel which matched the one I would have payed at the other chain. I decided to give it a try since I had heard good things and read great reviews of the hotel.
The location is a little far from downtown if you have to attend meetings in the heart of the city, but otherwise very well located close to all the shops and restaurants you could ask for. Unless you want fine dining, you will be well served, and the movie theater is only a couple of blocks away.
As for the hotel itself, it is a very well kept and very tastefully decorated building. Everything is ultraclean and modern, from the lobby straight to the room. The pool is not as big as other hotels but it does the job and although the fitness center is a little small, it has all the equipment needed for a good workout.
The room was of great size, plenty of place to move around, bathroom was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I would easily compare the room to other from higher end chains wihtout any problem. Small touches also make it special, like the presence of a blu-ray player in every room and the fact that you can borrow movies from the front desk. Little touches that make you feel more like home and make it easier to relax.
As much as the hotel is great, it comes short when compared to the staff. This was one of the best customer experience I have had in a long time. From the moment I checked in, Darren made me feel welcomed and was one of the friendliest person I have met over time. I interacted a few times with him and he always looked like he was happy to help, which I am sure he truly was.
Bottom line: Is the hotel worth more than the likes of Delta... maybe not just because of location. Is it worth the same price even if you have to travel a bit to get downtown... definitely. I would easily recommend this hotel to anybody, as for me, if they can match the price I get elsewhere, I will definitely make this my destination when in Halifax.
