Great location on the water

1kramer2 (Brights Grove, Canada) on Jun 23, 2022

Spent 3 days in Halifax at this hotel. Rooms are pretty standard for the brand. Check in was shaky as the desk clerk was extremely rude and terse (an unusual and rare experience for an Envoy Gold member). Hotel is right on the water at one end of the long boardwalk so very conveniently located with several very good restaurants close by. Overall a good experience other than check in and would recommend this hotel.

Waterfront property of high quality

OnAir51906519229 (Wetherby, United Kingdom) on Jun 19, 2022

Enjoyed our stay at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel. Small hiccups on checking in but these problems were quickly dealt with by the duty manager. The hotel is at the northern end of the boardwalk which is probably one of the nicest and most varied boardwalks in the country. Halifax has certainly gone to town to make its visitors welcome and entertained. The hotel was clean, tidy and the rooms well serviced with all necessary requirements for both business guests and tourists. The restaurants had a wide choice on the menu and there were opportunities to eat either inside or out. All menu items were very reasonably priced and we particularly enjoyed the very attentive but unobtrusive service we received in all areas of the hotel. Note that the Hertz hire desk is no longer situated at this hotel but at the Westin at the other side of town. When we’re back in Halifax this will be our number one choice of places to stay.

Stay here for the location (or conference)

PaulNazareth (Toronto, Canada) on Jun 18, 2022

This is a really great location if you want to be on the water, it’s right on the gorgeous Halifax seawall walk near so many restaurants, attractions and right next to the Ferry port to Dartmouth. I stayed here for a conference (7 days) and while the rooms were upgraded ands quite contemporary, the conference floor is quite old school. We were quite disappointed in the food but the actual restaurant in the hotel was really good (great fish and chips!!) My room had a wonderful Koehler rain shower with a big shower wand and it was a daily joy, stand up, big and bright. The room was good, lots of plugs and the free water was much appreciated. The main reason I bumped them to four stars was that the staff so consistently went OVER and above for our conference and when I needed help, it was memorable. I was kind of annoyed the artisan coffee place in the lobby feels like is NEVER open (it’s only open in the mornings) but everyone was raving over the quality and upon trying it, I do agree. They also sell specialty soda. The hotel tuck shop does not have gouging prices, which was nice too. But not a lot of selection. Nice place, great views, awesome staff.

Good Spot - perfect location

Sadie280 (Cambridge, Canada) on Jun 15, 2022

This is a great location for walking the waterfront and the downtown restaurant scene. The hotel is in good shape and the rooms with the king size bed are perfect for couples ... the beds are comfortable. Make sure to get a room that faces the bay. It is an easy walk to the Citadel and along the wharf. Our flight was cancelled by Flair Air (typical) and we had to stay an extra day; the hotel was really accommodating and was able to find us rooms in a last minute basis.

Certainly one of the best in Halifax!

Bose2 (New Brunswick, Canada) on Jun 01, 2022

We stayed many many times in Halifax and stayed here several times. Overall it's a top hotel in Halifax and a nice flagship property under the full service Marriott brand. I can't really find many bad aspects for this property other than the temperature control in the room which can be a bit lacking, prices can be bit high as well, but that's just Halifax this time of year and after 2 years of Covid, people are out and about! Ultra clean guestrooms, spacious and cozy, we were really treated well by the staff as Bonvoy Elite members, everything we asked for we got. The rooms are techy with outlets in abundance and Netflix + Youtube on the TV. Location is outstanding and attached to Scotia Square & the Casino, many places to walk to and places to eat. We either stay here or at the Westin and really love both properties, we are Marriott loyalists afterall. Can't wait to come back and would recommend. Enjoy!
