I really like the Residence Inn concept - all suites with a full kitchen, free full breakfast, and great service. This location is excellent - right downtown Halifax, walking distance to everything - food, theatre, shopping, museums, etc.
The service is excellent. Hannah was the front desk agent and she was warm, friendly, and helpful.
The included breakfast is great - waffles, eggs, pancakes, sausage, potatoes, cereal, bagels, fruit, juice, tea/coffee, etc. all available from 7-10am in a beautiful, cozy "Hearth Room."
Our suite was well-appointed. The kitchen has everything you need, the flat panel TV is a decent size, the bed and pillows are comfortable, and there is lots of space to truly unwind and relax.
I have to note that the free WIFI is actually very reliable and quite fast, which is not the norm for hotels. We were able to FaceTime, watch Netflix and YouTube, and upload large photos and videos to Facebook and YouTube without a hitch. I did a speed test and was getting 9Mbps down and 8Mbps up at 7:30pm - impressive.
This was a "staycation." We are from the area, and this hotel fit the for our purposes - an apartment-like suite where ewe can just chill out for the weekend. We ate at the Fireside (which is always lovely and has a great happy hour until 6:30pm), had frozen yogurt at Yeh!, saw a show at Neptune Theatre, bought some great booze at Premiere Wine and Spirits, ate at The Stubborn Goat, saw some art at the Shoe Shop, and finished with some great beer at Stillwell - all within 5min walk from our hotel.
We will definitely recommend this location to friends and family.
