The restaurant for breakfast was quite a walk, hard to find with all the renovations going on (not good signage) and the escalator going up was not working so had to walk up stopped escalator with bad knee which had just had cast removed from.

No Value for Excessive Rate

Pros: Location
Cons: See above review: Furniture Cleaning Plumbing Pest Control Sound proofing Security Higher floors for rooms
Location: Walking distance to most city highlights
Business travellers prefer clean/quiet rooms where they can focus on tasks to complete. This property delivered on none. ~The chair at our business desk is in need of replacement. No excuse for the condition it is in. ~The complimentary drag races throughout the evening outside our window was interesting. Had I been advised of the evenings entertainment I would have ordered cocktails. ~The bugs in the bathroom were fine about sharing, however upgrades to facilities required, The average count of depressing the handle & holding to flush the toilet was 20 seconds, the fan sounded like running water, so you were looking for a leak until you realised it was the fan. ~The protective layer of dust on the bedside phone assured me no person dusted or inspected the room prior to occupancy ... could explain the bugs in the bathroom. ~My favourite though, the Happy Birthday Princess sash hanging from my room number in the morning. Explains all the screaming & running up & down the hallway the evening before. I wonder where security was? Certainly NOT the 2nd floor! ~As for the friendly people of Halifax looking into my room as I packed the following morning & turned away when I smiled & waved good morning to them ... even they are uncomfortable with a hotel room that low ... better suited to meeting space, Your prices are far too high for what you are delivering. Don't get me started on you narcissistic "art" . Such a shame. This could be easily turned.

November get-away to Halifax

Pros: Clean, comfortable, convenient, friendly
Location: Steps from waterfront, boardwalk, Pier 21 and Museum of Immigration, Maritime Museum, Nova Scotia Art Gallery, pubs on Argyle St,short walk to Citadel
Stayed a week at the Four Points by Sheraton Halifax. Convenient, comfortable, quiet. The Niche Lounge on 2nd floor gets lively on weekends due to extended happy hour and half-price on selected appetizers. Hotel staff were very accommodating - readily provided a microwave, extra bottled water, coffee packets, face cleansers to make our extended stay comfortable. Front Desk staff also provided great tips and directions for good spots to eat and visit, etc.

Decent hotel, weird little things...

I stayed at the Four Points in Halifax for almost a week in the middle of October. The staff were friendly, but didn't explain some key details that I thought could have made my stay better. For example, if you decline room service, you get a $5 voucher for every night that you decline. But they don't really explain what/where you can use it. You have to place this placard on your door before 2AM to say you decline, but I don't know if you're declining for the same day or the next day, because I only received room service once in my 5 night stay. Secondly, the elevators in this hotel are the slowest elevators I have ever encountered in any building, anywhere. No word of exaggeration. I can't tell you how much time I spent waiting for the elevators to show up, and I was never the only person waiting, no matter what time it was. That being said, the room was nice and the bed was very comfortable, and I liked the fact that the hotel was central to a lot of things in downtown Halifax. As long as you're not in a rush to get anywhere, and you're fine with a laid back atmosphere, you shouldn't have any reservations about staying here.

Excellent Hotel

Although I live and work in Halifax, I do like to get out and have a girls night once in awhile. The one time my very good friend from away came to Halifax for a weekend, I decided on booking a hotel room downtown for the occasion. I choose the Four Points upon hearing good reviews from my former coworkers from Antigonish and clients at the restaurant I work at downtown. I myself, was in a bit of a rush because of my work schedule, however the staff, especially Stuart, the young man at the front deck were beyond wonderful and helpful my entire stay. The parking was around 20 dollars a night, and for a Halifax resident who regularly has tickets because of the hours I work, this was actually a reasonable amount so close to downtown and the waterfront. The hotel is beautiful, clean, great prices and so convenient to anyone wanting to stay in downtown halifax. It boasts one of the best staff and services around. I would recommend this hotel to every one of my friends as a 5 star, and as I was told (which I unfortunately missed out on), the restaurant, niche that is associated with the hotel, is "amazing" as my friend recalls. Cheers!

All good but one thing...

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel is in a great location right downtown. We got a good deal on the room which was clean and comfy. Great for a night in the city. It's $20 per vehicle to park on the parkade the hotel which is a bit expensive. We had two vehicles and the the clerk said she would knock one down to $10. The bill was $40 when we woke up the next day. Plus the maid didn't read the dnd sign on the door and woke us up.

Just wasn't thrilled.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
The room was dirty. The bed covers were smeared with brown stuff, never changed while we were there. The carpets were dirty and there was detritus in the sink. It was a roof over our head, the room was warm and they provided free water. The toilet was smeared with feces and, again, was never cleaned for the 3 nights we were there. There were people who were loud and partying til 4 in the morning. we complained but they were at it the second night too. Very frustrated!!

Can't say anything bad

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
The location is great, the room was quiet and clean. We didn't use any of the facilities (pool, gym, etc.), so I can't comment on anything else. The garage is a bit scary the first time you drive in, but parking was plentiful and not too expensive.

Great Service

I stayed at this hotel two years ago and it was great. When I booked back then, I let the hotel know that I was bringing my mom there for her 80th birthday and they had chocolates, balloons and a card in our room upon arrival. It made the stay very special. The hotel is centrally located and we walked to many attractions. I am going back to Halifax in July 2013 (with my mother) and we are planning to stay at the Sheraton Four Points again.
