We decided to spend my birthday weekend in downtown Halifax and stayed at the Marriott Harbourfront. Great hotel, room was very comfortable with an amazing view of the water! Staff very friendly and sent a box of delicious truffles to the room! Hotel is walking distance to most places in the downtown area which was great.

On a recent trip to Dalhousie University in Halifax, my partner, daughter and I stayed at the Marriott. This was an all round superb hospitality experience for all three of us. The hotel was superb. The ambiance great. The staff welcoming and friendly. Definitely plan to return for a more relaxed visit.

Very nice large hotel on the end of the harbourfront. Service by front desk was excellent and we had a lovely room with a harbour view. Good choice if you are looking for a standard big hotel chain experience but has nothing specific about it to reflect the charm of Halifax

Even though I live inside HRM, I stay frequently downtown in many different hotels & I must say that this is one of my favourite places. I just stayed Saturday night & the 3 staff I encountered at the front desk during my stay were excellent :) Hard to come by, I don't always experience friendly caring staff that go...

I'm generally a Marriott customer when possible, glad that they have this property in downtown Halifax. Great location, excellent service at check-in, and by the parking valets. You're pretty much right on the waterfront and close to all the action so if you're visiting the city for the first time or there on business this is a good choice. Lots...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our once a month "date night".

I am back in Halifax and this time all of my meetings can be reached by Pedway so I decided to stay at the Marriott Harbourfront.

Thank you for such a comprehensive review. We are making progress with ongoing upgrades to our hotel. Last year we added an outdoor patio and will be extending that over the harbour this summer. Later in the year we will begin guestroom renovations that will include new doors, windows, walk-in showers in most of our king-bedded rooms, new carpet, vinyl...

My family and I had an excellent 2 night stay at this hotel. We stayed in one of two pool-side suites which offers plenty of room for a small family. The easy access to the pool is very convenient and ideal for monitoring children. Clean room and quiet. Overall great stay.

You walk into the lobby and it's absolutely amazing. Then you get into the elevator with a map on the inside doors which is completely useless on your 10 second elevator ride, and as soon as you get off you are taken back to the 90s. We paid extra for the harbour view, dont bother. Rooms are so dated. Clean...
