Very good location - close to downtown, nightclubs (Durty Nelly's), restaurants, citadel, waterfront boardwalk, you name it. Spacious rooms with kitchenette. It's like having a little apt. in town and there is no charge for parking in the two-level parking garage.

RIHManager, Manager at Residence Inn Halifax Downtown, responded to this review

TravelingCAgal, Thank you for your kind words. Our location truly is convenient and allows our guests to travel the city by foot. We love the fact that we are within walking distance to local attractions, restaurants, nightlife and the waterfront. However, to clarify on-site parking is an additional fee.

We stayed here for 3 days while visiting the area. The hotel is perfectly placed for visiting the city. It was a bit noisy on the weekend nights but not too bad. We appreciated how dog friendly they are. It was great to have the kitchen set up - it's definitely the best part of staying at a Residence Inn....

We stay here very often. The rooms are extremely spacious, and the pricing reasonable. The rooms are always clean. We often book a room here on special occasions.
