Halifax Citadel

... the 1790s with the onset of the French Revolution. Throughout the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812, Halifax served as the headquarters for the North American Station of the Royal Navy, with the Citadel as the port's principal landward defense.

After the Napoleonic Wars in 1815, the British decided that wooden forts, including the Citadel should be replaced with by more powerful and permanent works of stone. The present fort became a legacy of the War of ...

... that made the treacherous journey across the Atlantic. It gave us a good
impression of what Canada is all about and the diversity it has. There were
quite a few nice wee shops around there and a farmers market too which was nice
to have a walk through.



We have been quite

... I certainly hoped that was not an omen of things to come! They fiddled and ****** with them, but could not get them to stay up. I offered the use of my hockey tape, but I guess that was not high tech enough. So Alex M. and I got moved. I had a brief flicker of hope that they were taking me to a pod, but no such luck! Alex was a trooper, and, after I watched The Hobbit, I managed to doze for a few hours. The lights of France are flickering below us ...

Peggy’s Cove origin has a legion about its name. On a dark October night during a fierce "Souteaster", a schooner was washed upon some rocks and sunk. Only one survivor was saved by the local settlers, her name was Margret or Peggy as she was soon known by the local settlers. She stayed on the shore of the wreck of the schooner and where she married a local man. People began referring to the location as the ...

A travel blog entry by marty_sk

A hangover from last night clouds my morning but gives the opportunity to do some washing, chat with some Halifax locals over a long breakfast and Skype with a friend in Perth. At 1 I meet up with my new German friends (michael and Manuel) and give their car the once over. It's rusted to hell. One of the rear springs has rusted and cracked in half, both rear running boards have disintegrated, part of the rear subframe is not connected, and the front right sway bar mount has disappeared. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Halifax Downtown

    Nice Hotel, great location

    from

    We stayed in Courtyard for 2 nights. We were originally going to stay at Prince George Hotel and after reading reviews for both hotels on tripadvisor we changed to Courtyard and we were glad. Location is great, a quick walk to the waterfront (quiter portion), we enjoyed walking on the boardwalk both nights. We walked to all attractions from the hotel.

    Room was comfortable we were upgraded to a room with balcony even though we had used reward points and had a view of the water from the balcony.

    Breakfast at the hotel was expensive and not worth it. Staff were friendly and professional. Coffee shop on the adjacent street had great snacks.

    Really wonderful!!

    from

    This hotel is brand new....and is very nice. We stayed here for 3 nights, Monday - Thursday. (Family of 4, we have 2 teenage daughters ) The hotel is one street away from being waterfront. We could see the water from our window when the fog rolled out. We stayed there during the Busker Fest, and it was very quiet and peaceful. It's a easy walk to the boardwalk, shopping and restaurants.

    Nightmare!!!!!!!!!!

    from

    We stayed in Halifax for two nights in August. We booked two rooms and were not able to sleep for two entire nights because the staff in the hotel did not know how to operate the heating and air-conditioning system in our rooms. No one knew how to shut off the heating unit which was blowing 90 degree hot air. Finally at midnight security came up to shut off the main power switch. There was only one staff member available for the entire hotel and there were no maintenance people available to fix the heating system. I find that to be incredible for such a large hotel. The second night we still had a problem with the heating system and were not able to sleep. The manager basically blamed us for the problem when the front desk admitted that they were never taught how to operate the heating system. The second night there were three drunks in the hallway who were not staying in the hotel. Again, amazingly poor security for such a large hotel. I would never stay in this hotel again.

    Great location and hotel

    from

    Stayed here in mid-July just after the hotel opened. I have to agree with the other reviews that the views are great and the service was outstanding. The rooms were nicely finished and very comfortable, the pool and exercise facilities were what you would expect from the Courtyard brand, and the hotel was very family friendly as we traveled with our children (10 and 14) and met several other families along the way. However, what set the hotel apart was the absolutely friendly, attentive and professional staff. We were always greeted coming and going and several of them put in the effort to learn our names and remember us, not something you frequently see at a hotel of this type. We did have a few special requests along the way and those were responded to quickly and with extra attention. A very well trained staff. The hotel is very well placed for exploring Halifax which we found to be an eminently walkable city. The one weak link was the food which we found to be pedestrian and expensive, but there are quite a few really good restaurants and cafes nearby for every meal of the day.

    Un hotel fantastico

    from

    Quest'hotel ci è piaciuto tantissimo. Si trova praticamente sul lungomare. È vicinissimo al Maritime Museum. Ci hanno dato una camera di categoria superiore a quella che avevamo richiesto e che aveva un balcone garantendo così molto più spazio all'aperto. La camera era bellissima e aveva un senso di lusso. Ci sono anche una terrazza sul tetto con una vista magnifica, una piscina e una lavanderia per gli ospiti, anche se non le abbiamo usate. Inoltre il personale era cordiale.

    Gran Hotel

    from

    Nos encantó este hotel. Está prácticamente ubicado en la costa. Muy próximo al Museo Marítimo. Fuimos ascendidos a un habitación mejor que tenía balcón lo que nos daba mucho espacio extra en el exterior. La habitación era preciosa, nos sentíamos ricos. Aunque no las usamos había, una terraza en el tejado con vistas impresionante para uso de los clientes, una piscina, y servicio de lavandería. El personal también estuvo genial.

    Great Location

    from

    There are a number of Marriot hotels in downtown Halifax. Three I believe. This one is located at the corner of Salter and Water streets next to the Alexander Keith's brewery. (Don't worry. There's no awful beer smell).

    Great Hotel

    from

    We loved this hotel. The location was practically on the waterfront. Very close to the Maritime Museum. We were upgraded to a room that had a balcony which gave a lot of extra outdoor space. The room was beautiful, felt luxurious. We didn't use them but there is a rooftop terrace for guests with great views, a pool, and a guest laundry room. Staff were great too.

    Courtyard marriott was great

    from

    we spent our aniversary in Halifax on Natal day weekend. The Marriott is a brand new hotel that just opened so we thought we'd check it out. It was hands down the best hotel we've stayed in in Halifax. Ask for a room with a balcony or patio for great entertainment at night (people watching)!! The breakfast was very good as well (extra $). A wonderful staff, went out of their way to help us with everything from directions to getting a bowl of chocolate ice-cream for our daughter. This is where we will stay for our next visit to Hfx.

    Great location, great staff!

    from

    We were very lucky to be one of the first guests at this brand new hotel. Everything was brand new and quiet because there were only a few guests staying there.

    The staff was wonderful. The 8th floor has the best views of the harbour.
