"Spacious room with cooking facilities and a view."
We stayed for a week in a spacious suite. It was wonderful to cook some of our own meals having been on the road for weeks. The kitchen had two burners, a large fridge, coffee pot and dishwasher. Plenty of cutlery and crockery. If you do not want to cook, complimentary breakfast and dinners are provided: breakfast daily and dinner Monday-Thursday. The […] beds were comfortable. The linen top quality. Good television reception. Location is within walking distance of town and close to the citadel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Front desk staff were very helpful, friendly and informative. Room was just as described, very clean and comfortable. Elevators were fast. Parking was secure. Breakfast was decent, we never made it to any of the dinners (complimentary Monday-Thursday), but nice that they have that option. Location was really good for walking anywhere downtown/ harbor […] side. We walked to Dalhousie, a little far on foot but definitely doable. Overall I really enjoyed my stay and will return.

We had an excellent stay. Great staff, great breakfast, amazing room with privacy from our 5 year old sleeping, pool was a bit smaller than expected, but we had lots of fun in it and the pool deck shower was wonderful. I forgot a nice LuLu Lemon jacket there and the staff called back to say they found it and would ship it to me. Amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

This brand new hotel will give you a 5 star experience in Halifax. Rooms are spacious and extremely clean. Staff is very pleasant and helpful.

This hotel was great and the staff were amazing. The hotel was only 10 days old when we stayed there in May 2014 and the staff were super accomodating. Food was great and everything was brand new and very clean. I forgot my sport jack in the room and called from the Airport to ask the hotel if they could mail it to me, they were more then helpful and […] agreed to do so but then called back and had made arrangements for one of their staff to drop the jacket off to me at the airport on her way home! Unbelievably friendly people in Nova Scotia but this was way above and beyond. I highly recommend this hotel. It had coin operated laundry, pool and gym and breakfast and dinner were included with the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Staff, Location and Property-Above and Beyond"
09/15/14 TL C Niagara Falls, Canada
Wonderful hotel. Very clean and tidy. The breakfast bar was well stocked; there was a tour bus there at the same time and they didn't seem to run out of anything. The staff were all courteous and friendly. Pretty knowledgeable about the area. The beds and pillows were excellent. Great nights sleep. Just a few blocks away from all the attractions, very central. Downfall: The snack shop was limited in selection and all the freezer items were gone. There was no regular water available-other than tap. And $6.00 for a sleeve of Pringles is asking way too much. Need to rethink the pricing-this would explain the abundance of stock on Pringles.
"THE Place to Stay in Halifax!"
09/08/14 Pixiie13 Toronto, Canada
We stayed for three nights and we didn't want to leave! The staff are very friendly, the décor is fantastic. They offer breakfast in the morning and even dinner most nights of the week. The breakfasts were always good and we had dinner one night, it was chicken stir fry, and it was very nice as well. The room was great and the bed was SO comfortable. Upon our arrival our room was not ready even though it was after 4pm but that was fine. We were able to get a pass to get into the parking garage so we could park the car and then we went for dinner. By the time we got back the room was ready...it was really no bother at all. I can only say good things about this hotel, I honestly wouldn't bother looking at any other hotels in downtown Halifax, this will be the one we always return to.
"Great stay "
09/06/14 Scott M
Staff : Fantastic, friendly, helpful, and cheerful. What I would expect on the east coast. Room: Laid out very well. Full kitchen stocked with dishes, pots and pans. Bedding : Comfy and clean Location : Very close to everything downtown Amenities : Hot breakfast and dinner very appreciated. However typical for a Hilton hotel. Parking is available but relatively expensive at $20/night. There is a pool and spa but I didn't make use of them. Noise: No issues at all. Literally brand new. Would be nice to find a bottle of water or two in the fridge upon arrival. A cold drink is always appreciated by travellers.
"A Nice Hotel if nothing is needed to change"
09/04/14 Syalami Dubai, United Arab Emirates
It is easy for us to give a good review to a hotel when everything is fixed and everything goes smoothly, the hard part when you want to change something in your trip or ask for support, then you would know how good or not is the place you are visiting. Overall the hotel is nice, clean, and up to a very high standards, you will enjoy the facilities and the infra structure of the hotel, the rooms are spacious and provides you with everything you ask for. The location is great if you don't mind walking a hill to get to from the waterfront. I can't say the same for the staff, don't miss understand me, they are friendly, cheerful and if you don't need their help you can't find any flaws in their work. Unfortunately, that was not the case for me, my family and I changed our plans and instead of celebrating my wife's birthday somewhere else we wanted to stay for another day and celebrate it in Halifax and hence wanted them to help us extend my stay for one day and book me a nice restaurant to celebrate her birthday, I asked when I checked in (the first day out of the five days I stayed there) if they had availability and at that time they told me they do have availabilities as I booked a suit at a high rate but it might change, I need to admit that I only came back the third day of my visit to confirm it but by that time there was nothing available except a more expensive rate, they assured me that they might have availability later for my suite rate, I checked the day after and suddenly even the one with higher rate is not available anymore, I thought they have booked it for me but that was not the case, then we started talking about a nearby hotel, a hotel far away, then an airport hotel and so on. At the end, I ended up in a different hotel for the extra night, booking my restaurant myself as they failed to even know how to book a restaurant for me. a very unpleasant stay for me. If you are 100% sure of your plans and don't need the staff help it is the hotel for you, otherwise I would advise you to go for another hotel in the nearby area that would be cheaper.

My husband was out in Halifax for work and since it was the labour day weekend, I decided to fly out to join him so that we stay the long weekend.My husband's work had booked him at the Hampton Inn (connected to Homewood).I called Homewood on Thursday asking if we can get an early checkin for Friday since we had to check out of Hampton Inn at noon.They said to call in the morning to see if any rooms were available.Since we were scheduled for a tour on Friday morning,we checked out of the Hampton Inn at 9:30 and walked down the hall to Homewood Inn.We were told there were no rooms ready but that they would hold our luggage.Off we went on our tour. We came back just after 3 and we were given the room 601.I had mentioned to them that we were celebrating our 25th anniversary.Our room overlooked the parking lot,nothing special.However,they left a card and 2 chocolates on the kitchen table.The room was clean,the typical Homewood suite,our bathroom was only a shower, no bathtub.The air conditioner is right in front of the bed and noisy. The fridge, not sure what it was but also seemed to be making a lot of noise. I can't blame the hotel for this but the people above us seemed to be moving furniture around as we heard chairs being dragged on the tiles. On our last day, since our flight wasn't leaving until after 3:00 PM, I asked if we can simply have a late checkout of 1:00 pm instead of noon.I was told no, they were too busy and had people checking in early. I can't believe they couldn't accommodate 1 hr and here they were telling me that people had to check in early when they wouldn't allow me to do that! The hotel is in a good location. It is across from the Citadel and a 10 minute walk to the waterfront. I've stayed at Homewood suites before and like the accommodations.However, this one needs to work out some kinks and be more accommodating to their guests. As good as the location was,I'd have to think about it if I would stay here again.
09/02/14 Mary M Edmonton, Canada
Really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms were spotlessly clean, spacious and well laid out. The complimentary breakfast was fine, and we stayed in one night for dinner and it was excellent. It is less than a 2 minute walk to Citadel Hill and 5 minutes down the hill to the waterfront boardwalk. All the staff were friendly and accommodating. We would certainly stay here again.

The front desk and dining room staff here are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is extremely clean and quiet. I was very impressed with the quality of the complimentary breakfast AND dinner. Everything was top-notch!
"Still working out the kinks..save yourself the aggravation"
09/02/14 ALBERTATRAVELLOVERS Calgary
Stayed here in late August in a two queen, harbour view room. I will start by saying that the view of the harbour was extremely limited, we had a better view of the parking lot than the harbour, so don't pay the premium, not worth it in all cases. Check in was brutal, slow, couldn't handle my concerns about the room, management followup to my concerns was a comedy of errors by a clearly inexperienced team. Give them a year to reassess rooms for view or no view, and properly train their staff. What cannot be changed are inadequate elevator system which left us waiting for ten minutes on morning, just to get down to breakfast and a small breakfast area for size of hotel. They offer a very basic complimentary dinner buffet but they ran out of food half an hour before, chef resorted to frozen dumplings just to get food out as committed. The rooms are lovely and modern but it is quite pricey for what you get. Location is in an odd area of Halifax, not that convenient for walking the sights and popping back in for breaks.

We decided to take a detour from our itinerary for our east coast vacation. The hotel was fairly new and it was spacious and very clean, even for a picky person like myself. The staff were friendly and it was close to everywhere that we wanted to go. It offered breakfast and dinner from Monday to Thursday, so you have a choice to stay in or go out and eat, which was awesome. The pool was clean and it felt like our little home away from home. It was a little more costly than what we were used to paying, but worth it with the cleanliness and dinner included, which can cost an extra $80-$100 for a family of 4. I highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed two days at this hotel with my mother - we were on a week-long tour of Nova Scotia. The rooms are fantastic - spacious (very!), full kitchen, smartly designed bathroom - you really do feel at home (well, almost!). Beds are super comfortable. The staff is exceptional! Everybody, I mean everybody - from the reception to the the cleaning staff to the handyman is extremely service-oriented. I needed help with the air conditioning and they sent someone within minutes - I happened to ask about a curtain not fully opening while he was there - he came back quickly with a tool to fix it. It wasn't even an issue for me had the curtain stayed the way it was but he wanted things to be perfect. I asked about directions and things to do - they went out of their way to map out things for me and then, when they saw me come back from my visit, they would inquire about it... The breakfast is great as was the "light dinner fare" mentioned on their website (weekdays). It was a lot more than what I expected a "light dinner fare" to be - it was a full supper. Everybody makes you feel welcome and happy that you are there and they all go out of their way to make sure all is good. I can't say enough good things about this hotel - I just wish I had planned to stay longer.
