"Great Hotel , Excellent Location"
From check-in to check-out, the experience was excellent. The staff are so helpful and courteous that we actully could not believe people could be so nice. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was pleasant. We would definately choose this hotel again whenever visiting Halifax (Fantastic city by the way)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, but be selective about your room..."
Instead of overlooking the harbor, my room faced a very busy and noisy road. I had been under the impression that I would be getting a harbor view since I had reserved a more expensive room. No refrigerator in room (unlike every Best Western and Super 8 I stayed in on my trip) If you are driving to the hotel, you may want to look at the route closely...it […] is in a somewhat congested area. They have a parking garage, but if you drive a larger SUV, it will not fit. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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. We have a very limited number of harbourview rooms so when booking online it is best that you reserve one specifically noted as “harbourview”, you can always change your mind later. 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. 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.
"VERY GOOD HALIFAX HOTEL"
Very good hotel in a wonderful and convenient location for tourism or business. Like the parking garage and its access to hotel--one elevator takes you straight to your floor. Parking a bit pricey, though. Staff exceedingly friendly and professional. Room very clean, and smells fresh. Comfortable bed.Genuine Expedia guest review
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
I enjoyed everything about the hotel except the view from my room 404.Genuine Expedia guest review
Right in Downtown halifax. Walking distance to just about everything, sights, restrauants, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing location and the hotel/room was top notch!"
The hotel was immaculate and very upscale. The restaurant and bar was amazing, and the rooms, including view, were exquisite!Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice but didn't like the extra $30 for water viewGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice view of the water"
We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the surroundings There were good restaurants in the areaGenuine Expedia guest review
Perfect location! My wife and I were there for two nights and had a great time.Genuine 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

"Great location, great staff!"
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
Super clean and no problems with housekeeping. Enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"NIce hotel for a nice city"
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
"Excellent location right on the waterway"
It is worth the extra charge for the waterfront room. An excellent breakfast buffet. A short walk to the casino.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location- better than good hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"great place to stay."
Attended a conference in Halifax. Hotel was lovely and clean, staff friendly and went out of their way to make my stay comfortable and easy. The hotel is right in the historic properties on the waterfront wonderful restaurants, galleries, shops and clubs are in arms reach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the hotel was very nice. The rooms were wonderful, but I think the walls are made of paper. All night I could hear the doors closing down the hallways and an infant crying closeby. The location was great. A little too expensive though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Excellent, Will be back for sureGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel located on harbourside in Halifax"
We have used the Marriott Harbourfront on a previous occasion in 2011 and were greatly taken then by the warm welcome and attention of the staff without exception. In addition the very central position of the hotel makes it an ideal base to explore a historic and interesting city and region of Canada. This trip proved no exception and we greatly enjoyed […] our stay of 10 days. It became our home from home. We would warmly recommend it to all visitors to Nova Scotia.

"Great location right on Halifax boardwalk!"
Loved the location, perfect to be right on harbour with great shopping and restaurants nearby. Walking distance to citadel and museums.

Can't wait to come back!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel website needs updating"
Not a terrible hotel, but one inaccuracy and the way the staff handled it means I will be staying elsewhere in Halifax next time. The Halifax Marriot's website states there are steam rooms in both locker rooms. I had driven about six hours that day, and made my choice based on their fitness amenities. No steam room, even though the website and as it […] turns out, the in room hotel guide states that there is. Here's the kicker - when I called down to ask about the discrepancy I was treated with rudeness and hostility. It began with the staffer saying I was wrong about the hotel guide, even as I was reading it to her. No bothering to check, or to look at the website. Instead she referred to what apparently to her was her long history with the hotel-- one year--- and that she had never heard this before. No "I'll look into this" or "we apologize for the misinformation' etc. Such a minor response was required. Instead the staffer unnecessarily escalated this to annoyance and rudeness. Lots of other hotels in Halifax. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience. I was disappointed to hear that there are still inaccurate sites that indicate we have a steam room at our facilities. The effort was taken a few years back to ensure our amenities were up to date, so I can appreciate your frustration. We have since sent to all booking parties our information so they can make the necessary corrections. I apologize that we did not field your suggestions and feedback in the most helpful manner while here on property. I hope that you will consider this property in the future and appreciate the time you took to address these concerns.
"Great Hotel Right on the Waterfront"
Loved this place! Comfortable room overlooking the harbour, nice pool and great fitness facility. You can walk out the door straight onto the harbourfront boardwalk and it is also connected via raised walkways to shopping and dining near by. Staff was very friendly and helpful and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not much interaction with hotel staff nice that Starbucks located within hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Although I usually do not expect very much from Marriott, I am still not satisfied with this waterfront hotel. The view is great, if you live in a room with a view. However, they often do not have that much of "rooms with a view". In addition to that, all the things are fairly worn out, if you really care. (I understand that the building and the hotel […] are both a little bit old, so I could accept this condition.) Parking is great. This location is very convenient to almost everywhere, especially to my favourite restaurant, "Salty's". Overall, I would stay at this hotel again, but I probably would upgrade my room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel I I am happy to hear you enjoy our harbourfront location. The design of our building does limit the number of guestrooms that face the water full on, but many of our rooms offer a partial view of either the south or north end of Halifax harbour and the adjacent Historic Properties. We renovated our lobby, restaurant and main floor convention space just last year . Thank you for your comments and we look forward to hosting you again in the near future.
