Boutique hotel that felt like home
Posted Oct 23, 2016
I stayed six nights at the Halliburton in October while in Halifax for training. The hotel feels like a home; I slept better here --under thick warm duvets that enveloped me after a long day of work -- than I have in any other recent hotel. The hotel staff were friendly and personable, and they were able to make tailored suggestions for shopping, dining, and transit. I used public transit (bus) to get to and from my training location, and it was easily accessible from the hotel. Breakfast was always ready on time, with fresh hot coffee and tea (important in Halifax's weather), and a healthy array of options (which did not vary from day to day, so after 6 days I craved some variety). As a boutigue hotel in a heritage building, there are some creaks and croans that you'll hear on stairs etc -- this is what made it sound like home to me -- and the building is not soundproof. You'll hear foghorns from the harbor unless you pack ear plugs (or like foghorns)!
