Well located boutique hotel. Furnishings are spartan, but the bed was very comfortable. Fridge and microwave but no kitchen equipment, not even a spoon.

Our vacation in Halifax N.S. was great. Made even better at the Hollis Hotel. Only problem we had was the bus service didn't pick us up to go to airport for our return home but the hotel staff did a great over the top job of trying to track problem and get us new rides to airport. I highly recommend the Hollis Hotel if staying in Halifax. So close to harbor and attractions.

We won't be back.

We were anxious to try the sleep number bed...Thank goodness we did not buy one. We didn't sleep well at all, now matter how we set it. Our son slept on a pull out sofa that was terrible, too. The air conditioning did not work the first night, and they no longer provide a breakfast buffet. I had been expecting nicer interiors...large chunks were taken out of the walls and repaired very poorly. The bathroom was very dated. It really is a 2 to 2 1/2 star hotel.. Also, parking is by valet service and the parking charge was $18 a day.

Radisson Suites - Just Great!

Have stayed at several Halifax hotels, including the Marriott Harbourfront. There is NO comparison to the Radisson. In the heart of Halifax and a block from the Harbor and numerous tourist activities. All accommodations are full suites with kitchenette, living room and desk with sitting area. High speed internet connection is included at no additional charge.\n\nThere is a gym and pool which this traveler did not use and, therefore, did not rate.\n\nAn in-house, top of the line, steak-house restaurant is under construction and scheduled to open soon. will also include seafood, of which there is an abundance in Halifax. A great steak is harder to find. A very nice continental breakfast is included daily on the lobby level.\n\nThe Hotel Staff, from Housekeeping to the Front Desk, are awesome.\n\nNumerous restaurants, from gourment to fast food, are within easy walking distance.\n\nFinally, Each Suite has a "sleep number" bed or beds which are fabulous.\n\nRadisson Suites is my hotel in Halifax.
