Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Halifax downtown is not very big and the Marriott Courtyard is in a central location. Everything you would want to get to in the downtown is a short walk away.

The rooms are modern with enough room to be comfortable even if you are traveling with a lot of luggage.

Front desk staff are incredibly helpful and pleasant. The only issue you might encounter is parking if you have a car. There was enough available on my stay but it did appear to be limited.

The bedroom was very nice with a view on the water and the location of the hotel is excellent. There is a parking on site (25$ a night) which is very convenient but spaces are tight (wouldn't park a massive SUV there). There are several options for breakfast and they serve Starbucks coffees (cappucino, macchiato etc). Wouldn't recommend the oatmeal unless you like it made with water. And there was too much water which made it quite tasteless. The other options were very good. All in all, a very good choice for a stay in Halifax

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Courtyard on a weekend getaway. Though I agree that the hotel is beginning to look and feel a bit dated, you couldn’t ask for a better location with the hotel being situated across from the harbourfront.

Check-in was smooth and super accommodating- we made an error with our booking and the front desk staff member, Rain, was super helpful and resolved the issue quickly and without trouble.

Overall, great location and a good night’s sleep. We will definitely be back!

We stayed at the end of May 2022 at the hotel. I booked 2 separate rooms for 4 nights each. We checked in, everything seemed fine except one room seemed a little musty, given that it had been raining when I landed, I turned up the AC and left for dinner. BIG MISTAKE. Upon my return after dinner, went to use the bathroom and was welcomed by the scent of sweat and urine, very similar to a public park washroom which has not been cleaned. I immediately went to front desk to request for a room change, but was told that the hotel was "sold out" and they could not change rooms for me. Housekeeping was sent up, tried to clean it and the smell still lingered just as strongly. Called the next day to request for a room change again, was once again advised that the hotel was sold out and there was nothing that could be done. As the guest, I was the one who asked for a "deep clean" to try to resolve the issue. Guest services provided no options or solutions and just went silent. The "deep clean" did not completely resolve the issue and I went to buy a can of lysol disinfectant spray to spray down the bathroom to mask the scent and to comfort myself and disinfect the bathroom myself. Which brings to question, how clean is the room itself. The day afterwards I also asked for a room change and was once again denied and provided the response "but we did a deep clean".

Now due to covid, rooms are not cleaned daily but there is supposed to be a "wellness check" on day 3. The room that was "deep cleaned" was provided with towels and the garbage emptied at one point. The other room, garbage was never emptied and towels never replaced. Coffee that was requested at front desk was never delivered.

I have reached out to Marriott to get some type of response, but have been left with a case number and no actual response, except the generic, please come again, we will try to do better. For the price of the hotel, I personally paid $2000 for the two rooms, choose something different. The brand Marriott does not seem to be consistent as I had hoped and the customer service is not any better by the hotel itself for the Marriott brand.

I used my yearly redemption on an upgraded room for my wife and I for our anniversary. At first, the staff did a great job and provided complementary snack and a small bottle of champagne for the occasion. The issue arose when they were hosting a company Christmas party on the same night, and we were interrupted during our sleep 3 times in an hours span to loud banging and screaming at our door.
Called the front desk 3 times and was told twice they would deal with it, and the 3rd time, there was no answer. I was told the week after that we would be compensated, however when I reached out recently to check on an upcoming visit, was told that we would pay more than usual for the room and they would comp our parking? Didn't seem like a fair deal to me so I escalated to Marriott directly as I am Gold Elite, waiting to hear back from them.

The only positive thing I can say about this hotel would be the location and the rooftop. My booking indicated that I was supposed to get an upgrade. I did not. It wasn’t a big deal as I understand that was not guaranteed. What was disappointing was that it felt like I actually got a downgrade. The room I got looked nothing like the one that I booked. The coffeemaking facility in the room was bad and they did not even provide a complimentary bottle of drinking water which was standard in other hotels I’ve stayed at.

When I got to my room, both card keys wouldn’t work and it took some time before they sent out someone with a new set of cards.

I totally agree with Tara re the parking. I feel that it is very excessive to be charging the full what used to be valet parking rate.
Also upon checking in, we were not advised that housekeeping would not be entering the room. During the current pandemic that is understandable, but we were not made aware that if we wanted fresh towels then we had to put the used ones outside our door. The front desk staff needs to communicate this to the guests. We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years, but this could potentially be our last visit. Very disappointed.

Thank you for leaving a review. Adapting to pandemic measures was definitely an adjustment for both the hotel and our guests. But we are required to follow the protocols set out for us by Marriott. Hopefully we are able to welcome you again in the future when we are post pandemic and things resume to normal.

This hotel was clean, we had a great view, and it is in a great location in downtown Halifax close to lots of great restaurants and bars. We stayed one night and took in some of the Evergreen festival. My only negative would be that parking was a challenge. The hotel’s parking garage was full when we arrived; the person at the front desk suggested that we use the lot across the street but with the festival going on I was unable to find a spot there after circling for 10 min. I ended up driving around downtown until I found someplace to park a few blocks from the hotel. I would say the busy festival downtown that evening contributed to the issue but if you plan to stay at this hotel you may want to book your parking in advance.

We enjoyed our recent 3-night stay at this Courtyard Marriott in Halifax. Our room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. This hotel is in a great downtown location within easy walking distance to many restaurants and sights as well as the waterfront. We would recommend this hotel if you are planning to visit Halifax.

Although this hotel is at one end of the waterfront it is well situated for all of the major attractions, Citadel (bit of uphill walk), Pier 21, cross harbour ferries and the variety of places all along. Some other hotels were a little further out and not central enough for us.
This hotel seems to be the centre of a lot of activities, weddings, parties and business meetings, but also big enough to handle normal tourist traffic without disruption.
We came here a day before our tour, very useful to be here for this.
Breakfast service can be a bit hit and miss, depends on the number of tour buses staying, but quality was good, as was the evening meal we had on the waterfront..
The only issue we had was understanding some of the check-in staff, fortunately there was a manager on hand to assist.
Alas, do not think will be in the area again, but still have no hesitation in recommending

We stayed in a king bed room with pull out. The room and furniture were in excellent condition with a large HDTV and good mattress on the bed. It was not recently renovated i.e, within a month or so. Probably was about a year old.

Hi Brian. I dont work at the hotel but stay there in November. I believe the 1st floor is lobby, front desk, restaurant/bar, pool, meeting rooms, and guest laundry. Im almost positive the sleeping rooms start on the 2nd floor, however, the hotel sits on a hill - first floor/lobby being at the lower street level (Lower Water Street) and part of the 3rd floor looks over the upper street level (Hollis Street) as if you were on the 1st floor. You could ask for the 2nd floor - the lowest # the sleeping rooms are on; or for a 3rd floor room looking over Hollis Street on street level. Two notes: When you call to make your request, I'd double check my information just in case. Im 99% sure I'm correct after looking at the Google map, but better to be safe. Also, Hollis Street is the busier commuter street with all the early rush hour traffic, etc. so it may be noisier. I would ask about this as well. Enjoy your trip - Michael

Hi Lovingleigh! Our rooms do not usually have breakfast included. However, we do offer several different packages that you can book online. One of them is called 'Family Package'. It includes valet parking, and breakfast for two adults, and 2 kids. Please visit the Marriott website for availability. Thank you
