Fantastic stay. Would highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Curtain had mold, STAFF FIXED IT FAST"
The windows open in the room. Someone must have left it open previously while it rained. The staff came to my room within minutes. They changed the curtains, waived my parking fees ($27 day for valet), free breakfast for both days, and they even made a cute elephant with towels for my kids. The hotel provided 2 cribs for me, and brought up a fridge. […] The staff is beyond my expectations. We had to rush out the door to the airport. The valet guy helped us pack our room. Then he called us in Starbucks from downstairs to help our morning. Needless to say he received a $20 tip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Do not go for the concierge level!"
Beautiful hotel, fantastic location but do not pay extra for the concierge level if you are staying the weekend. The concierge room is closed on the Saturday and Sunday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs a push to be resort hotel"
Great location in hotel I have patronized since its opening in the 1990's. It has been renovated since my last stay with marked changes to the lobby and restaurants...not all for the better. Completely wasted space overlooking the water has replaced the old waterfront restaurant and the lobby bar has been converted to a multi-use lobby bar, sports bar, […] restaurant etc. It achieves none of the above well. As for a weekend resort, massage and other spa services are not available Saturday or Sunday in spite of promotion as a resort connected to a casino. The rooms are great and comfortable, internet is free and the location is unmatched. Parking is easy under the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
for the price it should include breakfast!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location in Halifax"
As expected, reliably clean and comfortable Marriott with possibly the best location in Halifax.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location on the waterfront"
We recently enjoyed several nights in Halifax and the location of this hotel was perfect. Easy access to the downtown/waterfront area and within walking distance to most everything. It was clean, well-appointed and quiet. The bed was very comfortable, but the pillows could use some improvement. Everyone was friendly and accommodating as well. Would […] definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, but be prepared for additional expenses"
The hotel was clean, comfortable, and convenient, and a reasonable price, expect for additional charges that kept piling up. A huge deposit was taken upfront for each day of the stay. Parking was a significant additional cost, and not included as was stated on the expedia page. Breakfast was not included, unlike most competing hotels in this price range […] and region. There was no fridge or microwave in the rooms. The music and people at the bar next door could be heard late into the night. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. Indoor walkway to the casino and proximity to the waterfront area was convenient. Overall, it was a nice place to stay, but had the feeling of being nickled and dimed to death. For being the most expensive place in town, I expected more. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Marriot Harborfront is the Jewel of Halifax."
We took the Halifax tour, the Peggy's Cove Tour and the Lunenburg Tour. We visited the Farmer's Market, the beautiful gardens and walked around Halifx downtown.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall, Nice Hotel"
Nice hotel. We didn't have a good experience when we checked in at 1am. But other than that, it was great. We had water view and the bar across the sidewalk was loud until 1am the first night but after that, they quit at 11. Not the hotel's fault. Parking is expensive, but I think that's pretty norm for Canada.Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed at the Marriott Halifax Harbourfront because it was right beside the site of my wedding reception. I was able to find a good deal online, check in early, check out late, and when I mentioned it was my wedding day we received a breakfast voucher for two. The room was very clean and the bed super comfortable. The server at the hotel restaurant […] was an absolute sweetheart and just the icing on the cake of a great hotel stay. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean, convenient stay right on the waterfront. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Spent the last 3 days of a 10 day trip in Halifax. Lovely city. Marriott's location so close to the wharf was great. Easy walk to numerous restaurants. We arrived at the beginning of the Busker's Festival. Great entertainment, good food and festive atmosphere.Genuine Expedia guest review

We loved the location and the excellent staff. Beds are comfortable. The staff went out of their way to make are stay wonderful.

"Perfect hotel for our short stay"
We had a lovely stay in your hotel. All of the staff were so friendly, everything was so clean, and the room was very comfortable. The one thing the room lacked was a bathroom fan. Otherwise, would stay at the Halifax Habourfront the next stay in Halifax.Genuine Expedia guest review

I wish they had blankets instead of one-thing-fits-all comforter that is too hot and heavy. Otherwise, nice hotel...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome location, get for shopping, walking, party"
Great location. Perfect spot to stay when you want to shop downtown Halifax, take a walk on the harbourfront, go to the casino or just drop into the local pubs. The room was great - clean and tidy. The breakfast buffet was out of this world and the service was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked 2 rooms room 381 was very good, nice view as well. Our 2 adult sons were in room 230 which is located next to the pool. Very noisey with young children having fun jumping and loud shouting to each other. Not a good room to place young people without children who might want to sleep past 7 am. Also on our departure day drilling was going on […] very nearby. Probably some construction taking place. The people at front desk and the young men outside helping with arrivals very good Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very friendly and attentive staff"
we stayed 4 nights, first night in a king, the last three in a suite. i found it to be one of the best hotel stays ever for me. the staff was particularly attentive. the only stumble was adding a nights stay. they didn't seem to get all the changes made in their computer and it caused some small problems. otherwise it was near perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Going back next October"
Hotel is located right in the city and very near both casino if that interests you or the boardwalk and downtown. Can walk to most attractions. Check in was late and that was a disappointment, but other than that everything was good. The parking garage made it convenient to come and go when the car was needed. Overall I would go back again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"It's nice. Right on the water"
We stayed one night in this hotel in August 2014. We were 4 adult travellers enroute to Newfoundland. The location is great (it's on the water and close to downtown). The service was ok. The room was clean. The only complaint that I would have was that there was no fridge in the room. Given the price of the room, it was one of the things that I would […] have really appreciated since we were on a road trip type of vacation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront. It is our goal to ensure that all our guests have an enjoyable stay and return for a future stay. Our hotel as you mentioned is situated just perfectly in the downtown area and close to many of the more popular tourist attractions and in walking distance. Fridges do seem to be a popular request, so much so, we have purchased a large amount that is scheduled to be arrived very soon, until then they are always available upon request. We are excited to be able to offer this in our guestrooms for many of our leisure travelers that are here for an extended stay. Thank you again for your feedback and I do hope to see you again in the near future.
I was surprised that there was no mini fridge or microwave in the room. This day in age I thought all room had this in them. I haven't stayed in a place for years that this stuff was not included. Otherwise the hotel was prefect.Genuine Hotels.com 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.
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

"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.

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.
