Our recent stay at the Hampton in Halifax was a good experience. The high-rise is located within an easy walk of great dining (on Argyle Street), the wharf, the Citadel, Public Gardens and many other attractions. The hotel staff are very well trained and made an effort to meet our every need. Our room was not large, but was accommodating enough. Many of these type hotels have no space to set a second suitcase, so one person is always digging in a case that is on the floor or hoisting it up on the bed. The breakfast service at this Hampton is still getting the kinks worked out. I think the hotel is/was so brand new, they have yet to be sure how to work the rush time and then ebb and flow of guests as they come in for breakfast. Coffee urns were completely empty more than once, which seems a little like poor planning given the fact that they could have prepared another ahead of time and then would have been ready to change out an empty pot instantly. Nonetheless, the staff who work in the kitchen area were so kind and did everything to respond quickly to any guests need. The best part of this Hampton breakfast area was the fact that there are real dishes, real coffee and tea cups and real flatware. It could be because they are new, or because they are actually connected to another Hilton property that has a higher price point, not sure. Suffice is to say I love having something other than plastic or cardboard dining ware and utensils. I give this one high marks and would recommend a stay at the Hampton if you plan to be in Halifax. Be advised parking is additional and is $20./per day. It bears repeating that this hotel is brand new so linens are fresh, fixtures are new and it still smells new...a really excellent benefit.
