What can I say about this hotel? Our stay overall was good. Here are my pros & cons of staying here:
On the pro side, the suite had an excellent kitchen with regular-size fridge, fully stocked with dishes, pots & pans, utensils, etc. We ended up going to a grocery store and buying real for for the entire week (we stayed for 6 nights). Our bedroom had a huge and very comfortable bed. Our suite was clean and had 2 TVs (on in each room). Lots of natural light coming through the windows.
On the negative, the layout of the suit was a bit odd... To get to the closet one has to go through the bathroom (only access). Also, we stayed with family, so some of us slept on the couch and to use the bathroom, one must go through the bedroom (again, only access). That was kind of inconvenient.
The breakfast food selection was okay, but could have been much better (though breakfast is included in the place, so I guess at least you get that).
If you drive a big car (we had a Ford truck), it might not fit inside their parking garage and you will have to find own parking (which could pose a problem downtwon Halifax).
The biggest negative for us was the location of our suite. We were travelling with a 1.5-year old baby, which meant earlier bed time. However, our bedroom windows (all 3 of them) looked out onto a busy corner of Sackville and Argyle Streets. This turned out to be the party block with people yelling and laughting and chatting loudly well past 2 am! (we were on the 1st floor, though it's situated much higher above the ground on that side)
It might be alright if just adults are on the trip because the location on the hotel is excellent and close to everything.
