“Sleepless night”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

Lots of noise heard in your room at this hotel with steps away from several waterholes. Too bad because I loved the room. It was very spacious, clean, bright, everything you need in the kitchen, nice sitting area, good size bathroom and the Paul Mitchell amenties was a nice treat. We asked to move but the only other rooms were on the other side where the other bar's located so not much better. We were on the upper floor. Nice gym. The front desk seemed used to this comment made the next morning, she just looked at us and smiled. Great location but be prepared from Thurs-Sunday to not sleep much before 2am

We stayed here and really enjoyed it, especially for the price. The location is very central to many downtown attractions and the staff were friendly. We have no negative comments about this hotel and would stay here again!

We have held business meeting events in this location for the last couple of years. The hotel is perfect for our needs and the staff treat us the very best. I can't say enough about how easy they make this event for us. They bend over backwards to make sure we are happy and everything is taken care of to our pleasing. Rooms are very clean and well kept. The recent improvements to their continental breakfast area are georgeous and their hot breakfast is fantastic! If you are staying in downtown Halifax, especially if it's for a few days try this hotel. It's location is great and the staff will look after you!!

Great downtown location, but the noise from the bars made for two sleepless nights. It may be better during the week, but we won't take the chance. It would have been nice if the staff was more sympathetic, however I can only image this is a routine complaint.

This is the third year in a row that my girlfriends and I have stayed at this hotel. It has a nice little kitchen which includes frig, stove, microwave and dishwasher. The cupboards are stocked with dishes and a huge king bed with a very comfy pull out sofa make it a perfect spot for four people. It is spotlessly clean. The breakfast (which is included in the price of the hotel) is lovely. Hot cereal, eggs cooked two ways, bacon, potato, yogurt, cold cereal, fruit, pancakes, make your own waffles etc etc. It in a perfect location to check out the surrounding night life and restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up to avoid noise from the late night party crowd. We were on the 4th floor an...

Stayed for Friday and Saturday nights and had a room on the second floor overlooking Grafton Street. The entire place was immaculate; the room size generous and the kitchen facilities well furnished. The complimentary breakfast had hot (eggs, sausage, waffles, oatmeal) and cold (cereal, yogurt) foods, which we ate in the dining room/lounge with monster flat screen to view the latest on Hurricane Sandy. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They will actually buy food for you to cook, if you are there for a long stay. The location is very central, easy walking just blocks from Spring Garden shopping, the Convention Centre and HarbourWalk. Haligonians know how to party, so there was some action at the bar across the street. Also, police sirens in the wee hours, but I think you would get that anywhere in the core of downtown Halifax. We would stay there again in an instant.

Room Tip: The higher floors may be slightly quieter from the street noise.

We stayed here Monday to Monday in late September and had a great experience. Every room is a suite and they're very comfortable and roomy, including a full-size fridge and dishwasher. The daily breakfast is good, a hot buffet that changes up every day. Parking is expensive ($20/day), though, as are pay-per-view movies (something like $15).

Location is great - walk in any direction and you've found something great! Go downhill a few blocks to the waterfront, uphill a block to the Citadel, right two bocks to Spring Garden Rd (great shops, pubs and St Mary's Cathedral) or left a block to St Paul's Church and more eating spots. We spent quite a bit of time just across the street at Durty Nellie's with great food, drink and service (highly recommend).

Some have been unhappy with the noise level, but even on the weekend, noise wound down by midnight and we had no trouble sleeping. We were on the third level facing the harbour and it was late September, so that might make a difference.

Room Tip: Third floor facing the harbour was great! Had a bit of a view and some noise from the corner pub but...
