Historical Traveler Reviews Delta Barrington Halifax
Surprisingly good service
Having experienced a generous range of accomodation from dingy interstate motels to world-class boutique properties, I thought I knew what to expect from the Delta Barringron - a typical "midsized, midrange" hotel with clean, comfortable rooms a cut above your Days Inn or Howard Johnson, with serviceable hospitality.
We arrived late at night, tired and hungry, with absolutely no luggage or amenities, as the airline had lost our luggage en route, and we were expecting a rough night. Instead, we were checked in quickly and sympathetically by extremely friendly staff, who went out of their way to get us a free and generous bag of necessities to get us started, and directed us to the nearest 24-hour pharmacy for the rest. Room service was tasty, hot, and most importantly, delivered in 15 minutes flat.
The location is about as good as any other hotel in Halifax, and the ambience is, well, pretty typical for a midrange business hotel. But the service was truly surprising - not as polished as a world-class property like a Peninsula or Four Seasons, but every bit as friendly, hospitable and accomodating.
It definitely created a memorable experience from what was supposed to be just another night on the road.
The rooms were a little small, but very clean, with good facilities. The staff were very friendly and approachable. Would stay there again.
We stayed at the Barrington for 10 days, great hotel and location.
Central to the waterfront, enjoyed the Tall ships,Natal day, Buskers and Frank the Bell hop went out of his way for us.
grat hotel, give it a try you wont be disappointed.
Stayed 2 nights in July 2004. The staff was so friendly that we truly felt welcome here. The bellmen/valet's were very courteous and helpful. Location was superb. The room was above average. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Excellent experience. I got a great deal ($149 cdn) with my Entertainment card for a Signature Club room with excellent bedding and bath with robes, free pre-dinner hors d'oevres and breakfast (yum!) in the Signature Club Lounge. Connected to the Casino Nova Scotia by a pedway. Excellent value I thought. Would return. It's about a $40 taxi ride from the airport (as is most everything).
Don't judge a book by it's cover!
My husband and I just returned from one of the worst hotel experiences we've ever had. We stayed at the Delta Barrington Hotel in Halifax, and this was the first and last time we will be guests at that hotel. First of all, this hotel is way over-priced, in my opinion. The rooms were not sound-proof at all. Rooms which run for $300 and up should be completely sound-proof, and you should not be able to hear your neighbors at all hours during the night. The first night we were there, we were awoken 4 times by the noises coming from the room next to ours. We contacted the front desk, who offered another room to us. After moving all of our items to the new room, we were awoken yet again by the noise coming from the room next door. We realized that we had been given an adjoining room, and we could even hear the conversation coming from behind the adjoining door. If that wasn't bad enough, room service forgot to tend to our room the second day we were there, and we returned later that night to find nothing had been done. Upon check-out, we discovered that all the "extras" that were initially listed, were actually things that we had to pay for. We were not advised of this when we checked in, but were informed of that in tiny fine print on the release form we had to sign upon check out. I asked the staff about this before I paid, and they said that I would have had to inform them I didn't want these "extras" before we checked in, and now it was too late. Well, we were not informed of any such charges upon check-in, nor was it written anywhere that there would be an extra charge. For example, the morning paper was not free. It was automatically placed outside our door (we did not ask for it), and we assumed it was free. Oh, and by the way, the view from the rooms was absolutely horrible. The windows were the smallest I have ever seen in a hotel. You would think that for the price this hotel charges, the windows would be bigger, and the view nicer. The windows were so small you could hardly see anything outside.Anyway, I could go on and on but bottom line is this hotel is not worth the money it costs to stay there. Maybe you are paying for all the brass in the elevators ... who knows? I'd rather save my money and stay at Howard Johnson's next year.
Delta Barrington is a Great Place
The Delta Barrington was an excellant place to stay. We were in Harfax 9/16 to 9/25/03. The employees could not have been nicer--from the bell boy who brought in our luggage to the girls behind the desk and the employees on the floors, were friendly, treated us very well and took care of our every need. The only problem we saw was the room was a little small for 4 people, but that worked out ok too. We had a great view of the waterfront, the ships & boats. We were in walking distance to that as well as many other places we visited during the international meeting we were attending. Food was great. All in all we were very pleased with the Barrington for these days we were there. I doubt if we will ever be in that area again, however if we were I would stay at the Barrington.
Delta Barrington is exceptional!
Whenever we stay in Halifax we always stay at the Delta Barrington because of it's excellant location, quality amenities, and the most exceptional staff we have ever met in all our travels. They are so warm and friendly, and they always go above and beyond to make you feel that you are their top priority. This hotel is simply the best in the Maritimes!
We recently made a trip to Nova Scotia and chose the Delta Barrington because of its location. We are glad we made the choice. Just about everything is within walking distance which enabled us to walk to the Metro Complex for the Military Tattoo and the waterfront, historic properties, etc. We took a taxi between the airport and hotel and then returned to the airport to pick up a rental car. This eliminated any need to drive or park within the city. The Delta Barrington is comfortable and clean, the room service was very good, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the staff to be exceptional. They are certainly doing many right things!
Good waterfront location but too expensive. The bar is cozy in the winter, but yeah...just too expensive for Halifax.

We continued North from Lunenburg and called in at Mahone Bay, a pretty little town at the head of an inlet and stopped at the local cafe for breakfast. We had been told by several people that we must visit Mahone Bay and as we drove through the town we could see why. It is the time of their 'Scarecrow Festival' and almost every garden and business …
Well, 17 hours on the train and back a time zone to Eastern standard time - that's 3 hours behind UK time. The overnight on the train was quite an experience. You get a small compartment with 2 pull down bunk beds and not quite enough room to move around - it's real cosy! I got the upper bunk after losing the arm wrestling contest - OK go on …
... spaces. I wouldn't want to see them all overcome by enterprise or even activity and many of the parkways along the rivers and canal are great for outdoor and exercise enthusiasts. But too many of the waterways are dead zones. Sorry, this is supposed to be a travel blog, not a soapbox. I'll get down off it now.
I had not been in Halifax since Pier 21 (Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21) was ...
... enough to take a decent bite. Back on board by 3pm, photo ID at the ready... (astonishing how many people were without it and had to be dealt with separately) Jette and I donned bathing cozzies and sat in the jacuzzi on the top deck in the sunshine as we sailed away. So that was Canada. Or maybe not really. I have not been to Canada before, but I don't think this has been representative of it so I will withhold my judgement until maybe one day I get to see a little more. Still no ...
Our first experience with the Canadians was extremely pleasant. Despite pulling ahead too early at Customs the border guard was very friendly. With a line of cars behind us he asked us about our journey and offered us some advice and even got up to get us some travel brochures. What a nice entrance into the country. From there we booked it across New ...
