Central location in Halifax
Recent guests thought the rooms were outdated
This Marriott outpost boasts a prime location on Halifax Harbour, within close proximity to the waterfront's bars, restaurants and shopping venues. Guests also praise this Marriott's proximity to the Casino Nova Scotia, which is connected to the hotel via an indoor skyway. Inside the hotel, the refurbished lobby wins guests over with its sleek, modern decor. The hotel's guest rooms and suites, on the other hand, seem to still need an update – travelers describe the rooms' brown and red color schemes as drab compared to the bright white furnishings of the lobby. Each room features a minifridge, a 25-inch flat-screen TV and complimentary internet access. As for dining, you can order room service from the on-site restaurant, the harbourstone sea grill & pour house or venture to the nearby eateries located on the waterfront. Feel free to stick close to the hotel for your daily caffeine fix, though; there's Balancing Rock Coffeehouse on-site, which serves Starbucks coffee. Thanks to the property's Marriott ties, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn free nights and other perks for choosing to stay here.
