Great staff and location

pouliot4 (Courtenay, Canada) on Nov 07, 2022

Location is amazing but little noisy . Great hotel , great staff . I cannot say anything about the hotel , room and staff . If you are a light sleeper make sure you tell the staff because the room of Sackville Street little noisy due to the conference square and all the bar at the next street . Parking is a little challenging but no big deal .

The worst experience

jacquelynm833 on Sep 18, 2022

Rude, dismissive, smug, and sexist management. We arrived at the residence inn to check in around 2 pm after travelling since 4 am. I was told by staff without any care or concern that the hotel was over booked and we weren’t staying at the hotel anymore (despite receiving a confirmation email from the hotel at 3 pm the day before). We were told we had to go to a different hotel blocks away (implying we wouldn’t have a place to stay if we didn’t agree). The staff member didn’t acknowledge my confusion, concern, or anxiety. He simply did not care. The supervisor was worse. He was the absolute worst person I have ever dealt with in hospitality. He was smug, condescending, rude, dismissive, and sexist. I tried to tell him my concerns and that I suffer from anxiety had had booked back in March after significant research and that I hadn’t researched the random hotel he was forcing upon us. He also told me at one point that he was talking to my husband and not to me. I told him that I booked it and it was in my name , he can speak to me. He clearly did not want to deal with a woman. He also did not try to help at all. Did not offer any compensation (despite offering the MAN before me free breakfast). He alleged that he sent us an email and it was my fault if I gave them the wrong email. I will note I didn’t get an email saying it had changed - I received one the day prior at 3 pm confirming our reservation at that location. The man in front of me also trying to check in said his email was sent at 9 pm the night before and he didn’t receive it either. I have never in my life had such a terrible experience. He was rude, condescending, dismissive and sexist. I’m absolutely disgusted. I simply can’t believe that the supervisor who spoke to us is in customer service. We did check in to the Hilton and the service here is much better but we didn’t receive the king bed we paid for. We have no plans to ever return to a residence inn again. It also tainted our entire stay in Halifax. Given the ordeal and the added time to check in (it took over an hour to get checked in to the other hotel because they didn’t have our info from the residence inn) we didn’t get to tour the citadel in Halifax.
