Expensive nap

Posted Oct 6, 2014
Slept there for 3 hours, I guess it was alright but an expensive nap. All cheaper hotels were full in the area

Excellent hotel located on harbourside in Halifax

Posted Sep 13, 2014
Pros: The outstanding welcome of ALL staff, and in particular Fadila our housekeeper and Catherine in charge of the Concierge Lounge.
Cons: Parking charges - too high at 22 dollars per day plus taxes and a captive audience
Location: Ideal location in central city and harbourside location. Surrounded by history and places to go. Great for couples families or single travellers.
We have used the Marriott Harbourfront on a previous occasion in 2011 and were greatly taken then by the warm welcome and attention of the staff without exception. In addition the very central position of the hotel makes it an ideal base to explore a historic and interesting city and region of Canada. This trip proved no exception and we greatly enjoyed our stay of 10 days. It became our home from home. We would warmly recommend it to all visitors to Nova Scotia.

Great location right on Halifax boardwalk!

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Loved the location, perfect to be right on harbour with great shopping and restaurants nearby. Walking distance to citadel and museums. Hotel restaurant has fantastic food with best gluten free seafood chowder ever! Waitress Mary Beth deserves special mention as wonderful example of warm friendly people in Halifax. Can't wait to come back!

Centrally located with great view of the harbour.

Posted Sep 7, 2014
Pleasant and helpfull staff without being fawning. Quiet, clean, well appointed rooms. Comfortable bed and pillows. Near historic Properties on the Harbourfront. Not a 'great' hotel but a very good one, and probably the best in Halifax.

Great Hotel , Excellent Location

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: The location was excellent. Within close proximity to just about everything.
Cons: Probably put refridgerator/microwave in the room which can come in very handy during extended stays.
Location: Restaurants, parks, universities, shopping. Fantastic location.
From check-in to check-out, the experience was excellent. The staff are so helpful and courteous that we actully could not believe people could be so nice. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was pleasant. We would definately choose this hotel again whenever visiting Halifax (Fantastic city by the way)

Hotel website needs updating

Posted Sep 1, 2014
Not a terrible hotel, but one inaccuracy and the way the staff handled it means I will be staying elsewhere in Halifax next time. The Halifax Marriot's website states there are steam rooms in both locker rooms. I had driven about six hours that day, and made my choice based on their fitness amenities. No steam room, even though the website and as it turns out, the in room hotel guide states that there is. Here's the kicker - when I called down to ask about the discrepancy I was treated with rudeness and hostility. It began with the staffer saying I was wrong about the hotel guide, even as I was reading it to her. No bothering to check, or to look at the website. Instead she referred to what apparently to her was her long history with the hotel-- one year--- and that she had never heard this before. No "I'll look into this" or "we apologize for the misinformation' etc. Such a minor response was required. Instead the staffer unnecessarily escalated this to annoyance and rudeness. Lots of other hotels in Halifax.

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience. I was disappointed to hear that there are still inaccurate sites that indicate we have a steam room at our facilities. The effort was taken a few years back to ensure our amenities were up to date, so I can appreciate your frustration. We have since sent to all booking parties our information so they can make the necessary corrections. I apologize that we did not field your suggestions and feedback in the most helpful manner while here on property. I hope that you will consider this property in the future and appreciate the time you took to address these concerns.
