“Great location, spacious rooms”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We really enjoyed the big room with kitchen and every thing. Nice bathroom. Parkinggarage in the house. Nice breakfast (but often you had to stand in line, for the waffles, which everyone seems to love).

We happened to stay a night at this hotel by accident, it was fantastic. The room is a suite with a beautiful kitchen, living area/bedroom and bath. Our large windows opened so you could have fresh air in your room and listen to the sounds of the city. There are many fantastic restaurants and bars all around you. The free breakfast is an average hotel breakfast and worked just fine for us. The only negative is that the parking garage was full and we had the option to park on the street or in a public parkade. We chose the later but then had to walk two blocks to the hotel. This would be more than just an inconvenience if this had of been winter.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the bars they get loud at night if you want to leave your window o...

Typical of Marriott Residence hotels, this one is a clean, comfort-filled room. Full kitchen to cook up what you like should you like.

"Free Breakfast" again is typical of the type offered by many such hotels. Waffle-Maker, muffins, fluffy yellow stuff that they call eggs (?), some fresh cut fruit and types of sausage.

The staff were "as usual", amazingly helpful and friendly.

Parking:
There IS underground parking which during winter months is a gift. However this "gift" comes with a hefty summertime price tag of $20 per night. I have no idea if that changes when the snow becomes an issue.

Location:
It's right downtown.. in the heart of the club / bar scene so expect some Saturday night outdoor rowdiness.

The hotel staff were super-quick to deal with minor noise issues inside, so that was not an issue at all.

Showers: The room I had was furnished with a full tub and shower, with adequate force (for me).

So... Although I'm not happy about the parking fee...other than that, if downtown is someplace you wish to stay, either the Residence or Courtyard (I've stayed there too and just a few blocks away) are great choices.

Our suite was spacious and clean. The hotel location was perfect. The breakfast was good with a few hiccups on our first morning when the staff appeared disorganized. Avoid the coffee.

However, when we asked for kitchen utensils for our suite on 2 occasions, there was someone at our door within a few minutes. Impressive!

On the noise issue, we stayed on 3 weeknights. Our advice: ask for upper floors facing Grafton St and avoid Argyle St.

Lastly, we couldn't fit our van in the underground parking at $19/day. The offered parking at a garage 2 short blks away at $10.

The Residence Inn by Marriott Downtown Halifax more than met our expectations. Every staff member we met was happy to answer our questions and accommodate our requests.  The lobby and common areas and our room were clean, comfortable and well-maintained.  There were many extras that we didn’t expect.  The breakfast that was included had hot items and varied from day to day. There was onsite, secure, assigned parking. Several days during the week of our stay there were afternoon events such as a barbecue.  We could easily walk to most of the downtown Halifax attractions such as the harbour front, Pier 21 and the Citadel.  Thank you to the staff for making us feel so welcome and enhancing our visit to your beautiful city!

My husband, 11 month old son, and I spent 4 nights at this hotel and I am so happy we did. The rooms were large, clean, and had all the comforts of home. This helped so much as we were travelling with a baby. Breakfast was included and was always delicious. The hotel had a laundry facility which made life easier too. What struck me the most though was the hotel staff. Every person that we encountered went out of their way for us. They couldn't do enough for us. As for location, the hotel is in a great spot near the harbour and citadel. It is near lots of restaurants and pubs. This hotel is perfect for families with young children as the rooms have all the comforts of home.

Room Tip: The suites are large and have huge closets.

Apparently there are quite a few bars in Halifax. Fun, loud, and lively bars, and many of them surround this hotel. It is a quiet oasis, offering a top notch breakfast and clean comfortable rooms. Easy walking distance to said bars, the waterfront, and the citadel. The pier 21 immigration museum was only a 15 minute walk. Enjoy a beer to cool down at the Garrison brewery along the way.
