                      the location is ideal. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful & went out of their way to help us when our car rental fell through and we needed to find another car. I would come back in a heartbeat!

                      We always stay here and have a fabulous/relaxing time. The hotel has a great location and is comfortable. The staff are friendly.

                      We normally stay here any time we are in Halifax and have great accommodations, however this time we stayed in a room with two double beds/ rather than a King- which is what we requested. The room had no window to the outside, but rather a pool side entry. I would have liked advance notice of this. I would have booked a room elsewhere.

                      Staff were pretty nice.

                      Had very bad experience in this hotel. When driving into the parking lot, I scraped one of my wheels. The path into the underground parking lot is very narrow with sharp curbs on both sides. Be very careful if u have a wider car. The rooms are nothing special. Most of the motels I stayed at had nicer rooms. The worst part about this hotel is the noises you hear coming for the hallway and other rooms. I could hear the conversations on both sides. The door has one inch gap on the bottom and half inch gap on top. I had trouble falling asleep and was forced awake by guests moving through the hallways and a bunch of girls staying in on the rooms next door. This is coming from a person who is not easily woken by noises. Defiantly not a hotel for couples who want to fool around.

                      It was amazing for location, comfort and convenience. The pool was nice and Starbucks is always a nice feature.

                      Access to the casino.

                      Our room had a bad smell. When we arrived the window was open and each time the room was cleaned the staff left the window open.

                      We went to halifax to see a concert that was held at the casino.the convenience of having the hotel attached via the pedway was great.we just parked the car in the parking garage and did not have to move it from there to enjoy our evening.then we went to the casino,spent a few hours there playing the machines and a few drinks,then we just had to get the elevator to our room,very convenient.the hotel is quite comfortable and conveniently located by the boardwalk as well for daily walking.

                      The only inconvenience we encountered was having to get on 2 different elevators to go from parking garage to our room.i thought the parking should have been included and a complimentary breakfast would be nice.even if u add an extra few dollars to the price of the room to include these.it would look better in the package.we had a very nice comfortable king bed.we enjoyed our stay very much.

                      The location did meet my needs.

                      I felt that booking on line I paid a higher price. They should include the parking in their price up front. I thought the price was over the top.

                      We have stayed at the hotel before and we didnt want to go out to a huge party, we just wanted to relax and get a night away just the two of us and relax. Given that I also get a corporate deal through where I work on the waterfront, we also knew it would be cheaper for us to go there and be able to relax and that time of year. We normally love the hotel and have stayed several times.

                      We didnt realize until we arrived that given it was new years eve, I was not allowed to use my corporate rebate for new years eve so that was kind of a let down. When I originally booked online as well, I had asked for a harbour view and I had also asked for chococlate covered strawberries for new years eve as we had them before and had greatly loved the service and quality of our stay. We didnt have a habour view. We had a view of a parkade wall and no one ever mentioned the requested chocolate covered strawberries that I had requested when I booked the room. I knew I had ordered them as I had printed off my confirmation which showed it. It just seems lately like there isn't much "customer service" anymore. We had to pay for our parking which, personally, we felt should have been part of the booking price because most people drive and so you have to park in order to stay if we dont live within walking distance which seems common sense, we weren't allowed to use my corporate rebate, we were never asked how our stay was and no one seemed to pay attention to us at all. We decided to go elsewhere for breakfast new years day because of the lack of customer servive. We always gave great tips for great service but now, on top of it all, instead of rewarding a person for great service, there is an automatic 20% charge for service (good or bad) as well as a $3.50 charge if we have to request someone to attend our room for such room service. It just seems to me that it is all about the money now and customer service has gone by the wayside completely. It was not very relaxing nor did we feel like we used to feel when we stayed there before. I am not sure if I would recommend the hotel anymore as we didnt feel welcome so I am not sure I could tell someone else how welcome they would feel.

                      Lovely soft sheets and absolutely delightful pillows on the king sizes bed. Found a twenty dollar bill on the pedway to the Casino Nova Scotia so that paid for my dinner at The Fife and Drum
