“Doesn't get any Better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

If you are going to Halifax I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was great the accommodations even better. It even included complimentary supper for all nights we stayed there. Less than 2 minute walk from the wharf. Best place I have stayed in the last 12 years and I travel quite often.

We travelled to Halifax for the Natal Day/Buskers festivities for two nights and picked the new Homewood after checking out all the downtown hotels. We've stayed at four others before the Homewood but it is now our pick of the litter.

The room is more apartment than hotel room. We chose a king suite which was equipped with fully equipped kitchen including full refrigerator, dishwasher, countertop range, microwave, kettle, coffee maker and toaster. The bed was very comfortable with nice linens. The room has a small couch which I think was a pull out. Very firm seating and not that comfortable. LG flat screen TV, slide out desk with all the connections and a small galley style bar with 2 chairs to sit at for eating. There is a buffet breakfast in the lobby area with everything you could want. The fruit selection wasn't great but that's minor. We ended up taking the food back to the room. Buffet dinner is included from Mon - Thurs. We didn't say on those days.

The HVAC system in the hotel is on the loud side - particularly in the toilet/shower room. It took me a while to get used to the noise when the A/C was turned. I turned it off and opened the small window in the room.

The staff were very accommodating and helpful. We changed rooms without any difficulty when the room reserved for us seem noisy. We arrived about noon and the room was ready even though check-in is 3 pm. We asked for a late check-out but they could not oblige as the hotel was busy. However there was no problem with leaving the car past check-out time and they offered to store our luggage.

We used the dishwasher both days. On day 2 there was no dishwasher detergent and a call to the front desk had a staff member at the door within a couple of minutes with a replacement.

After a two days of pounding the pavement in Halifax we decided to eat-in on the second night before going out to see the fireworks on nearby Citadel Hill. It was great to have the full kitchen to have that choice.

The location is close to everything as long as you don't mind the walk up to the Citadel. We highly recommend the Homewood and will be back. Too bad that they don't have one of these in the city centre everywhere!

Room Tip: Check out the noise level in your room before unpacking. The rooms high up on the South side have a...

This Homewood is outstanding. Clean, bright, comfortable, well equipped. Staff are courteous and thoughtful. Rooms are perfect. Location is good. Great for the Citadel, ok for waterfront areas (steep climb on your walk back). Breakfast was nice, but coffee was excellent.

Room Tip: I was in 1203, and couldn't hear anyone nearby. It is worth the extra money for Harbour view if...

We booked this hotel last minute. There were not many others available in Halifax and we were looking for something with a kitchenette. Well, it turned out to be one of the nicest places we've ever stayed in Halifax, N.S. Brand new hotel with a lovely free, hot breakfast. We had a 1 bdr suite that was very spacious and decorated nicely. The beds, including the sofa bed were very comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. Location was excellent, close to all downtown venues. We would definitely go back! here.

We stayed at the Homewood Suites for a reunion weekend and were very impressed. Our 2 bedroom suite was very spacious and clean. The complimentary breakfast was quite good. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.

wonderful to stay in a new hotel with many amenities like complimentary breakfast and dinner. Kitchenette and able to make stove top meal if we wanted. Close to downtown. Friendly staff who were knowledgeable and able to assist us. Early morning wake up and check out with a cab that was waiting for us.

Stayed in a king studio room with harbour view for two nights. Liked the full kitchen option, even though we didn’t really end up using it. Decent view of the harbour. Hotel is located one block from the citadel, which was convenient because I visited it a couple of times. Pretty close walking distance to the waterfront (10-15 minute walk) but it is up and down hills. We stayed on a higher floor so noise wasn’t an issue but it is at the intersection of some busy streets. Pool is shared with a sister Hilton hotel, and was way too small and shallow for adults. I liked the self-serve parking.

Room Tip: higher floors have less traffic noise

Thank you for your great review, your positive comments were most appreciated. I appreciate your comments about our pool. It was designed with all guests in mind, however I agree that it is geared more to families than adults looking to exercise. We look forward to welcoming you back!
