Great downtown hotel

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: The location, value for money and historic charm
Cons: Sound proofing and windows that stay open!
Location: Location is right in downtown so everything is walkable although they do have free carparking.
A really great hotel nicely located in downtown. We were in a separate building to the main hotel but it was only 30 yards to the main building. Our room was large and spacious and clean although the windows had seen better days! The free continental breakfast was good and any queries dealt with quickly and pleasantly by reception. Only downside is that the walls are very thin and we heard everything through the walls!

Converted townhouse hotel

Posted Jul 17, 2014
Very Pleasant staff but the room was three floors up with no elevator. The ceilings were low and the bathroom tiny. The hotel is in a good location in Halifax but it needs an elevator.

overall great experience

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Location and charm. Location was the key for me minutes away from the pier.
Cons: The conditions of the lower level suites, musty smells - windows should be opened more. Brighter lights perhaps.
Location: Easy walking distance to the museum, pier 21 and loading docks for boat tours which I found came in handy.
I was excited to fly solo and experience the east coast for the first time. I loved my first impression of the Halliburton. I had a nice suite on the main floor (ask in advance). I love the original ceiling work and character of the building. The historic charm is definitely more my style. The room was clean and well kept, comfy and lots of space. The downside of course was not being attached to the main area and stairs throughout. Day four of my trip, I came down with food poisoning of unknown origin. I was really sick, too sick to transfer to the westin as planned on my last day and the hotel staff were really accommodating in my requests and found me a room. They also let me stay an extra hour in my room while recovering. My flight was canceled the following day thanks to Arthur so they also were able to accommodate an extra night at the same original booked price. Overall? The staff and location of the hotel really made my visit that much easier and enjoyable.. The rooms on the lower level definitely are not up to par with the rest of the hotel but it was only for two nights so overall, a good experience. I didn't get to try out the restaurant but breakfast was good, rooms and bathrooms were well cleaned and maintained.

Hidden gem

Posted Jul 5, 2014
A little bit more expensive than your average room but for location and the classic, historic feel of the building, it was well worth it.

Homelike stay close to the boardwalk

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: It's location and comfortable feel.
Location: Walked to the boardwalk and downtown, Maritime center. 1/2 hour drive to Peggy's cove. There is a private parking lot behind the building.
This hotel is really more like a bed and breakfast. It offered very clean rooms that gave us the feel that we were visiting a relative's home. The room was furnished with antique matching furniture. The bed (full size) was firm and adequate as well as the air conditioning. The bathroom was spotless with a rain-shower. Breakfast was beautifully served and the food was perfect European like continental fare. We hope to stay here again as Halifax has so much to see and we were not there long enough.

Cozy hotel

Posted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: Homey atmosphere, bed was comfortable.
Cons: Fresh brewed coffee throughout the day.
Location: Lots of shops and restaurants close by. Dalhousie, the Citadel, and Public Gardens all within walking distance.
My stay at the Halliburton was very comfortable. Well worth the money spent. I travelled to Halifax from Virginia to do some genealogical research. The hotel was within walking distance to the waterfront and several nice restaurants. The staff at the Halliburton was polite and efficient, the hotel restaurant, Stories, was awesome. Great food! The fresh brewed coffee in the morning was awesome too!

We have stayed at the Halliburton before and would stay there again. Rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. The location is excellent for exploring the Metro area.
