“Great hotel and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

I stayed at the Courtyard for a week in May and the wonderful staff, especially Stephanie and Bee made me feel at home. This was my second stay and the only thing I was disappointed in was that they no longer have the buffet breakfast. However as there is a coffee maker and a mini fridge in the room as well as a supermarket nearby I made my breakfast there. After the first night I had a great view of the harbour. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and quiet. There a great deal to see and do within walking distance and many great restaurants nearby. I was helped with reservations for restaurants and tours and also bus route in Dartmount and Halifax.
Thanks for a great vacation in Halifax.

Room Tip: The best views are at the end of the hall over looking the harbour. it is very quiet there also.

Great hotel, located conveniently downtown. Our kids enjoyed the restaurant ( my 7 year old picky eater, loved the chicken wings) The chef personally served the food to our kids!

The room was spacious and clean, with a great shower.

Valet parking was quick and courteous.

I've stayed there several times with my family and would recommend it to anyone.

Great Hotel close to the shops and dining on the waterfront. Staff were excellent and very friendly especially Charlynn! I was there on business so it was nice to be able to walk on the boardwalk during lunch break and in the evening. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Corner room with water view very bright and spacious.

Good easy check in, valet parking, central location. We had a harbour view King room with balcony. It was raining while we stayed so we did not get to enjoy the balcony, however it was nice, had a good view. The room was a good size, 8th floor, very quiet. Noted that it appears that it has had some recent upgrades, looked like new carpet, noting that the bathroom could use updating and the curtains on the balcony were in very bad shape, all picked and not all that clean. Bedding was clean and bed was comfortable, could have used more pillows however I am sure if you requested you could have gotten more. Valet parking was easy to use. Did not use the lobby/dining serviced but it looked like they had a nice lounge set up. Would stay again.

Our family stayed at this hotel for two nights and were very impressed with this hotel. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and seemed large, bathroom was large also, mini-fridge in room, central location (short walk to Spring Garden Rd shopping and downtown fine dining). Our room had a harbour view which was very scenic. We valet'ed the car (at approx. $20 a night if not in a package) - no issues with valet - speedy service to have the car brought round.

We had a couple of special requests and the hotel staff went above and beyond to accommodate. We stayed on a family package which included a full hot breakfast at the restaurant in the morning (served Starbucks coffee which was nice!) and the valet parking. They were making some changes to their morning meals in the restaurant, so a little confusion, but nothing major - food was tasty!

Great lobby seating area and entire hotel seemed to have an updated décor with an urban, modern feel. The absolute best thing about our stay though was the hotel roof top patio (access off the 8th floor by key) overlooking the Halifax harbour. Very scenic, restful and just a lovely place to be on a sunny day. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Wow! I stayed here last weekend for my anniversary and it couldn't have been better. The hotel was right in the middle of downtown so we just left the car there and walked for the weekend. Everything was so close by. We ate a few fabulous restaurants, all within a few minutes from the hotel. I definitely recommend heading up to the 8th floor balcony. The view was incredible and you can see the entire harbor and beyond. The staff was amazing! They were always happy to help when I went to the desk and made great dinner recommendations for us. I will definitely be back.

Thanks for a great stay :)

I recently stayed at the Courtyard by Mirrott located in downtown Hailfax on the waterfront. What a beautiful hotel. Great location within walking distance to all downtown attractions. The rooms were very comfortable and the housekeeping staff was beyond accommodating. Our room attendant Charlynn was so sweet and personable. She had us covered with everything we could possibly need for our stay.

I highly recommend this hotel!
