Thank you for sharing your recent experience, S. We always want to take genuine care of our guests and do in fact, offer feather free options for both pillows and bedding if requested. I hope we have another chance to see you with us again!

Very Friendly and helpful staff.

Posted Sep 18, 2017
Pros: Location, cleanliness and friendliness
Cons: Possibly update their computers for guests
They asked at the front desk what brought us here. I told them we were traveling for my husband's birthday. They had a dessert and sparkling water as a surprise for us when we checked in. That was very special. The staff was very friendly and helpful for anything we asked for, including directions and recommendations. Breakfast buffet was delicious!

When you book AND pay extra for " waterfront rooms " , they are not actually waterfront rooms. You only get a glance of the water. And it certainly isn't worth the extra 50 dollars a night.

We are terribly sorry to hear that your guest room experience fell below your expectations as that was certainly not what we wanted. With the unique design of our hotel, unfortunately not all harbourfront rooms have a full view of the water. With that being said, we have created two amazing outdoor spaces for our guests to enjoy the best views on the waterfront and I hope if not this time, the next time you are here that you get to enjoy it as well.

Focus on Guests a High Priority

Posted Sep 14, 2017
Pros: The friendliness and helpfulness of the front desk and bell staff.
Cons: The hotel said it is looking at installing room safes rather than guests having to use the deposit boxes at the front desk.
Location: The hotel is located next to the harbourfront boardwalk, which has a broad range of restaurants, views, and museums within a few blocks.
This hotel is located at the start of the harbourfront boardwalk, which is one of the most enjoyable attractions in Halifax. And although I didn't go there, it is also just one building away from the casino. The front desk staff, the bellmen, and the servers in the restaurant went out of their way to make my stay more enjoyable. When I asked for the phone number of a popular local restaurant so I could make a reservation, one of the front desk staff booked the reservation for me. When I was going out walking or sightseeing, the bellmen never failed to offer me bottled water to take with me. When I said I needed a taxi to get back to the hotel, a member of the front desk staff provided me with the name and number of what he described as a very reliable service. And he was right. It's these little things that make a visit more enjoyable. They make the guest feel very welcome and important to the business.

Being right down on the waterfront in Halifax definitely has many advantages, but does come at a higher price point. Recognizing this, we always strive to deliver above and beyond for our guests and create an exceptional experience. I hope to see you again and do just that!

Great Location with Friendly Staff

Posted Sep 5, 2017
If you plan on going to Halifax I would recommend the Marriot Harbourfront Hotel. Friendly helpful staff, clean well appointed rooms and it's location right on the Harbor Walk makes for a pleasant stay.
