Guest reviews for Courtyard by Marriott Halifax Downtown

5 out of 5

What a Hotel!

This is a brand new hotel (only open for seven weeks when we visited)situated in downtown Halifax overlooking the waterfront. It is an amazingly beautiful place with an excellent staff. The valet was so helpful with directions - he was a genuinely friendly person. There is a scenic terrace area on the 8th floor - a great place to relax and enjoy the city.The price was very reasonable - it was our favorite hotel out of our entire Canadian trip. Only problem? Breakfast was really expensive downstairs and not very good- you may want to consider walking to another location.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

THE THINGS THAT A PERSON LOOK FOR MOST OF ALL IN HOTEL ROOMS, CLEANLINESS! UPON OUR CHECK IN TO OUR FIRST ROOM, THE BATHROOM HAD A WOMAN'S RAZOR AND THERE WAS HAIR ALL OVER THE BATH TUB AND FLOOR. WE WERE TOLD BY THE FRONT DESK THEY WOULD GIVE US A NEW ROOM AND WOULD HELP US MOVE (OF WHICH THEY DID NOT HELP). THE NEW ROOM ALSO HAD A DIRTY BATHROOM WITH USED RAGS AND TOWELS HANGING FROM THE SHOWER CURTAIN. I PULLED BACK THE SHEETS AND FOUND SHORT, CURLY BLACK HAIRS ALL OVER. THE STAFFS RESPONSE WAS TO GIVE US BREAKFAST BUFFET. THE NASTIEST BUFFET I HAVE EVER NOT EATEN. THEN THE NEXT MORNING THE CONSTRUCTION IN THE ROOM ABOVE US STARTED AT 0730. WE CHECKED IN TO ANOTHER HOTEL, THE RADISSON ACROSS THE STREET.
