Nice hotel,close to the water front.

Posted Sep 28, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at the Halliburton because it was close to the water front and many restaurants. The rooms are a bit small but because it is a historical hotel it is to be expected. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Nice boutique hotel

Posted Sep 25, 2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: Parking - make a part of the reservation process to reserve a parking spot. I had to park over in a grocery store, which is a little sketchy.
Location: Close to water street
Good Time - Enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Only issue was parking, and that was minor

Boutique hotel

Posted Sep 20, 2015
Pros: Staff were helpful when requests were made to them. Bed was good and comfortable. Good quality buffet breakfast , always stocked.
Cons: Reception staff could have been more helpful in explaining why our room was not available at check in.
Location: Hotel was pretty central for sightseeing--the Citadel, Public Garden, Boardwalk, Maritime museum and bus tours to e.g. Lunenburg ( recommended)
Our room was not ready when we arrived at 1.30 pm which is completely acceptable but when we arrived back about 3.00pm ( check-in time)after having had a meal, it still was not available. We waited in the library until about 3,30pm when I asked the reception staff on the progress of our room and were told that our room would probably not be ready until about 4.00pm. I was not happy about this and told the reception staff so and about 3.45pm we were offered an upgrade which we accepted. ( Was there some significant problem with our room?)The next day, the manager called and I got the impression from him that the reception staff had been upset that I had complained. At the end of our stay I did apologise to the staff member if I had upset her ( purely out of courtesy as I do not believe that I said anything a frustrated traveller would not have said in the circumstances). After a bad start, the stay was good with a more than an adequate breakfast. The staff we spoke to were quite pleasant although the cleaner did not always refill the coffee, tea and sweeteners we used in our room. One thing I did not pick up on when I booked was that the three buildings of the hotel were completely separate which I thought may have been a problem going for breakfast but this turned out not to be the case. Over all, we enjoyed our stay in Halifax and in the hotel although things would have been a bit different without the need to complain about the room not being ready on time.

Nice historic hotel close to the harbor boardwalk

Posted Sep 16, 2015
Pros: It is historic, the breakfast was very nice, easy to walk to most attractions, a great staff and very helpful
Cons: More counter space for the bathroom
Location: Very nice location relative to the harbor and board walk. Close to nearby restaurants like the Henry House Pub excellent & recommended, historic sites
We had a very enjoyable experience at the hotel as well as the trip in general. Most of our time was spent walking around Halifax, visiting local restaurants, pubs, and historic sites. The boardwalk is excellent with several attractions. The last two day we spent driving to nearby attractions like Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, Wolfville, and the Titanic grave sites. Our hope is to return and visit Cape Briton, and do some wale watching off the Digby coast.

great restaurant

Posted Sep 11, 2015
Clean room. Helpful staff. Great location, one of best restaurants in Halifax. Pain in butt to walk outside to get coffee early morning but got over it. Get there early to get free parking or else you leave your car wherever you can. So free parking conditional.

Excellent location, funky hotel

Posted Sep 10, 2015
Pros: Location and the fact that it is I different. A true "boutique hotel".
Cons: little guidance by staff or a board regarding breakfast would be nice. did not know if any coffee or tea would be served or if we were on our own
Location: All of downtown Halifax is close and very close to the harbour!
Interesting concept to make a hotel out of a series of buildings. Large comfortable room and very comfortable bed. as expected lots of great period charm and features.
