"Very very comfortable room"
It was all good. Loved having the Starbucks in the lobby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice view of the harbour, big clean rooms"
Close to the harbour, lots of fun right outside your door. Worth a few extra bucksGenuine Expedia guest review
We love coming over to this hotel, love it because it is located downtown but this time, just bought a new truck & when we arrive around 7:30pm they told me they had no more parking for oversize vehicles. What I had to do is go park at the Casino up the street, try & find parking ticket & walk back to hotel, it was almost 8:30pm by the time I got back, […] didn't have any supper yet. I wish they would tell you up front that there is a limited amount of parking for oversize vehicles & that you might have to park it at the Casino then people would know Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback on your most recent stay with us at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront.We are the only hotel in Halifax that is situated directly on the waterfront allowing our guests to enjoy all the downtown sites and attractions. Parking is definitely in high demand in the downtown area for many of the businesses locally for both small and larger vehicles. It is for that reason that we do indicate on our website that we have limited oversized parking availability. As you mentioned, we have both Purdy’s Tower and the Casino just a short walk away or inside pedway so in the colder months of the year our guests are not inconvenienced by the inclement weather. Feel free on your next visit to call ahead and we can let you know if there spaces available prior to you arriving. Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Second time staying at Marriott Harbourfront, All the luxury and convenience you will ever need and it is right in the heart of the action. Friendliest staff you will find anywhere, breakfast at the Harbourstone restaurant is a must, It is very easy to like this Hotel and there is a genuinely friendly vibe all around.Genuine Expedia guest review
I attended the CSCE conference. Breakfast was served the first morning; it was terrible: dry bread with a slice of bacon. Next morning they changed to a buffett breakfast; it increased the quality. The provided lunch was such simple without any spicy tastes. Beside it was cold.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel Thank you for sharing your comments. Food quality is important to our culinary team and I will pass this along to them. We will also look for additional comments from your conference and group contact to ensure we address any further concerns.
"View of the room"
The view of the room is awful. You feel you are in prison. Other than that everything was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Completely overpriced and overrated"
For 249 plus a bunch of taxes and fees which totalled 300, we got a small room with two double beds and walls so thin we listened to the baby in the next room crying. I had booked the harbourfront for my parents as a treat for them because they would never book a nice hotel for themselves so I of course wanted a harbour view room, and thought that's […] what I had booked. When I arrived I was told that a harbourfront room would cost 40 more for an upgrade. Then was told they didn't have any left. Then was told they had partial view rooms, and then found us a harbour view room and charged me 40 for upgrade. We got up to the room and found a tiny room with two double beds and a half window which looked out onto the casino next door and if you stood up you could see a bit of water. Harbour view. I was very very disappointed as my parents and I only had the one night in Halifax to enjoy. And as for the room it really was nothing special or different from an econolodge type hotel. I have traveled extensively and in all levels of accomodation and I would not recommend this. My issue is not that the hotel is bad , it's that they are charging way way too much for what they give you. I spoke to the manager the next morning and he reversed the 40 charge, but I shouldn't have had to do that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel I am very disappointed to hear you found your guestroom unsatisfactory, particularly when the purpose of your stay was to offer a special treat for your parents . It is certainly not our intention to charge rates beyond what is reasonable for the quality and service we offer. Room rate is however, driven by market demand, similar to factors that affect airline ticket pricing. At this time of year occupancy in Halifax is high. Regardless of market influences, I am genuinely sorry that your experience did not meet, let alone surpass your expectations as we do strive to deliver brilliant hosting.
"Very nice hotel on the waterfront downtown."
I have stayed here a few times now and couldn't be happier. Very clean, with a friendly, helpful staff. Internet is ok. Very nice spa and fitness centre. The hotel is close proximity to everything downtown including a lovely harbour boardwalk.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect for Family ReunionsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location but dated hotel"
Hotel appears dated. Doors to rooms do not block noise in hallways. Rooms facing street are subject to noise traffic.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel I am sorry to hear you did not find your stay with us as enjoyable as we would have liked. We renovated our lobby, business centre, restaurant and bar, plus 8,000 square feet of meeting space on the main floor just a year ago as part of our ongoing efforts to provide an up-to-date, contemporary atmosphere for our guests. We are located in the heart of the city, directly on the Halifax harbour, so occasionally there are audible city sounds. We would be happy to provide you with a room located away from the front of the hotel for a future stay, in hopes you will find it a quieter experience. Just let us know your preference when making your next reservation please.

"Close to everything"
We booked 4 months in advance and indicated we needed a cot and extra pillows. When we arrived there was no cot so my son had to sleep on the floor. Manager promised an air mattress would be provided for the second night. When we got back to our room late in the evening, no air mattress. Two hours later they brought a cot. Didn't get much sleep. Restaurant […] great but very expensive. Spa fantastic and reasonably priced. Valet staff inctedible. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Its not worth of price"
Size of bed not comfortable for 2 adult. Not enough towel and extra facilities according to number of guests.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel Thank you for taking the time to comment.on your stay Should you book with us again please note that we do have rooms with king sized beds and we can provide additional towels and amenities upon request.
The king suite was over priced for what it was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Even though our stay was short, we were in complete comfort and relaxation at the Marriott Harbourfront. Walking distance to the impeccable restaurant "Baton Rouge" and within walking distance to anything. A definite must for staying in the Halifax area. The staff was also incredibly friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"New Years Dissapointment"
We booked this hotel on New Years because of its distance to the casino. We booked a Deluxe room with a king bed, we decided to upgrade the night of to a harbor view room.... We were disappointed. $279 +tax for the room and it looked over the Lower Deck pub more so than the Harbor. Not to mention the "rainforest shower head" was a joke. Not what we […] expected.

Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel Thank you for choosing to spend New Year's Eve at our hotel. I am sorry that you were disappointed in the view from your room. I hope the convenient location allowed you to enjoy your evening.
"Halifax August 2013"
Great location. Perfect if your going to the casino and step outside your on the board walk. Walking distance to basically everything and a short drive to the mall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel and staff would definitely recommend to friends and colleaguesGenuine Expedia guest review
I love staying here ESPECIALLY if we're going to a concert at the Metro Center.... I Don't have to walk outside in the Cold/Rain/Snow to get there. The Staff are REALLY Friendly too. 2 thumbs UP :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing fitness facility"
Very impressed with the cleanliness and variety in the fitness facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK Hotel Well Located"
As part of a package we stayed at the Marriott Waterfront hotel in Halifax. The room was very pleasing albeit small with a partial view of the harbor. The location could not have been better as it is right on the water front and next door to the casino for those who like to gamble. I recommend this hotel but beleive it could use an upgrade.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel close to all downtown amenities."
The hotel was the base for a conference I attended. This was very convenient. In the mean time my kids and husband enjoyed the pool and local attractions. On Saturday night Halifax hosted the Nocturne and we all attended. Everyone had a good time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stay in the heart of the waterfront"
Really enjoyed access to the waterfront area. We were pleased how quiet our room over the front entrance was (with the window closed). We purchased breakfast with the room, and it was really great (although we did have to hunt down bowls and a glass). Would have been nice though if parking wasn't a surcharge.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Staff AND Great Location!"
This beautiful Marriott, in downtown/waterfront Halifax was a joy to stay in for our last 2 nights in Nova Scotia! The food in the dining room was excellent, the service ('at your service' button on the phone!) was prompt and courteous. The convenience of the location makes it easy to walk to most of the attractions in the down town.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay in Halifax was enhanced by the comfort and convenience of this lovely hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nothing bad to say about this hotel. It was comfortable, clean and close to many tourist interests in Halifax. It was a bit noisy at times (the music in the hallways can get very loud) and they really should dim the hall lights at night as the bright light frames the room doors and is pretty jarring in the middle of the night. But, all in all, I would […] stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel nice and modern, room comfortable, great location. Parking extra cost is a negative, breakfast order was mediocre for cost and not entirely correct, and we requested a good harbour/boardwalk view (anniversary) but while we could see the harbour, we basically faced the other rooms/interior and got to listen to the elevator on our wall. Just a bunch […] of little nuisances that were disappointing. But ideal spot if you like modern style and location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I would definitely stay here again.....it was the perfect locationGenuine Expedia guest review
"great waterfront location"
The waterview room gave us a great view of the ferries and Theodore Tug in the day, and lights of Dartmouth reflected in the water at night. It was a step out of the door to visit the boardwalk and see the variety of ships and nearby Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Valet parking was great for the rented mammoth van. The bed was super-comfy with down […] pillows and quilt. I would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"on the waterfront but no view of it"
our king size room was fine by marriott standards but carpet appeared old and the view is of adjacent roof and ventilation unit---no water in sight.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced but convenient location."
The Harbour View room we stayed in had an okay view. For the price we paid, I would have preferred a building not be in the way. Many problems with our hotel room key too at 11pm after we'd been travelling for 12 hours. Good location, but wouldn't stay in this hotel again. Overpriced!Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved the location - right at Harbourfront and close to all the fun pubs and restaurants. We had a great view of the harbour and historic properties.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location no vue"
the location is in an excellent spot on the harbour. our window was overlooking the indoor pool. We found this noisey and a little kreepy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"a lite out dated"
the concierge level is not that is should be, not open on Saturdays and Sundays only open for Breakfast until 9.00 am and again open from for snacks from 5 to 7 open until 9 but only for coffee. Should be open every day from 7 am to a least 11 pm for drinks&coffee etc. and no PC or other stuff for office needs. The Lounge is way to small to feel you […] relax. Do not spend the money on the Concierge level. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
