$15.95 wi-fi!

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 3, 2011

A $15.95 plus tax charge for in room wi-fi is more than an outrage, it is a new low in hotel chisling and clueless management. But wait, there's more: the Halifax Harbourfront Marriott "system" doesn't work with "Apple products" at any price, any where!

I was recently in Kenya at a tented safari camp in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, many miles from Nairobi or anything else, where the locals live in dung huts. The wi-fi was free, high speed, always available and trouble free.

I am simply stunned that this otherwise lovely hotel can exist as a business or even tourist destination. It is rare, outside of government, to see such utterly
backward leaning and incompetent management anywhere on the Planet today. In this internet age the lack of high speed wi-fi connection,normally free, is a deal breaker. I know of no one who would consider booking such a hotel. Call me "new fashioned" but there it is.

I urge the traveling public to use the only tool we have to stop this corporate abuse: stop using Marriott world wide and insist that your travel department, travelagent or tour company do the same.

Marriott Halifax Harbourfront

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 5, 2007

In November 2008 I attended the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples Annual General Meeting and it was held at this hotel.

The food and the banquet was really good. We had a salad, stuff chicken and a light dessert but it all tasted great.

The hotel was very comfortable though, the rooms where nice. It's right on the Halifax Harbour front and you can go to the Halifax Casino without even going outdoors.

The gym there looked really nice too. I would definitely stay here in the future.

Unique Quality: It has a good pub the Fife and Drum and it's also right next to a famous Halifax bar called the Lower Deck.

Directions: Downtown

Comfy Hotel by the Waterfront

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 2, 2007

The Marriott Harbourfront is conveniently located along Halifax's waterfront. Right next to the hotel is the Historic Properties where you can shop and grab a bite to eat. The pedway leads you to the casino, or all the way to the Old Town Clock by the entrance to the Citadel. It comes in handy on a snowy day. Room decor is very nice and beds are comfy. Free internet access is available in the business centre. Remember your room key to get access to that. Underground parking is $15 + tax per night as long as you are a registered hotel guest. If not a hotel guest, parking is $28 (all prices are in Canadian dollars). Public transit to Dartmouth is accessible nearby at the Water Street Ferry Terminal. For buses, there's a major stop on Barrington St (through the pedway by the Delta Barrington Hotel).

Unique Quality: Many rooms have a partial waterfront view. Nice beds, complimentary in room coffee & tea. Staff is very friendly (you don't have to think before you ask a question) in this CAA 4 star property.

Directions: Historic Properties

Casino Hotel

by written on October 28, 2004

I didn't stay in this hotel but did explore it a bit while in Halifax, it is obviously very nice, upper end, little more expensive but very nice for sure.

It is right on the water and from there you can walk along the waterfront and there is a nice atlantic feeling to this area for sure. Some great places to eat in that area as well.

Enjoy the seafood. If you are going to take in some gaming it is just downstairs so you are all set. Personally my advice is don't get addicted to the gaming, Halifax is a great city and your going to loose your money anyway in the Casino!!

Unique Quality: FYI Promo version :-)

A nice hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 2, 2004

Most of the times I've been to Halifax, I stayed at the Sheraton. It's a good hotel with nice rooms, a pool, a casino, and an all-you-can-eat buffet for breakfast.

Unique Quality: The pool is nice, and the breakfast buffet is great. The Sheraton isn't totally fancy, but it's a nice place to stay at, much better than a motel. Good for families or any type of tour group.
