Great location but beat up rooms

ryanleafs93 on Nov 14, 2021

Rooms were pretty beat up with dents,chips and some holes, just not what I expected from a 4 star hotel. Other then the rooms looking like they have been partied in hard the location is great close to lots of things.

Great view of the harbour, quality has dropped

geoffreynicholas (Calgary, Canada) on Nov 13, 2021

Great view of Halifax harbour and good room layout. Hotel has dropped in quality from previous stays. Room wasn’t clean, heat didn’t work(was eventually fixed) smelled like marijuana 2/3 days. Price was right but we paid a premium for the room and don’t feel the value was there. Better price point hotels available nearby, overall disappointing stay.

Wonderful Experience!

tastyytravels (St. John's, Canada) on Nov 11, 2021

Really enjoyed my stay at the Hollis. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The room was much larger than I expected, and was super clean. Location is right in the middle of the downtown centre, so it was easy to roam around on foot.

Fantastic Hotel and Location

goodinfo (Kabul) on Nov 04, 2021

Spent three nights at this hotel, while touring the area. Everything was perfect; front desk staff was friendly and knowledgeable. My room was a mini-suite on the 7th floor with a harbor view. The room had been sanitized and well appointed. Location could not be better - about one block from the harbor/ferry area. Loads of restaurants, shops and pubs within walking distance. Parking is across the street. I plan to return to the area and will stay in this hotel again.

Do not book

I travel to Halifax regularly for both work and to visit family and this is my first stay at the Hollis and will most certainly be my last. While the front desk staff is absolutely lovely and we’re very accommodating when I complained once checked in about the state of my room, once moved to a new room unfortunately the cleanliness did not get any better. I believe at one time it is likely these “suites” were quite nice however they haven’t been cleaned in some time. For the price of our stay Halifax has many other options available and although the location and views of the Hollis are great …cleanliness trumps those things for me ,always. Our first room had cream cheese on the curtains and sticky stuff and crumbs on the surfaces, we were given a new room where the surfaces were still sticky , stuff was spilled down the chairs and the curtains have been shredded. Overall to say I’m disappointed would be an understatement.
