Travel Blogs from Halifax
Haueteru stayed here on Oct 6, 2013 during their trip titled: The semi retired's Labrador Loop.
I stayed up all night doing last minute packing. No sleep. Too excited. My parents drove me at 4am to make my flight to Philadelphia at 7am. We all wanted to tear up a bit when we said goodbye, but we were all also very tired.
Walking to my gate, I met a man named John who worked at DIA. He was laughing at someone missing …
So this is my first post on my new blog. I'll start by saying wow its been a crazy summer, from graduation to Peru. Vegas to Lake Mead.

Daddio and I made it to Nova Scotia ! I met a few people doing SAS who were on our flight from Boston to Halifax. We had to go on a very small plane--frightening. They said we were over the weight limit and asked if any of the 50 passengers would take a voucher to get on a different flight. No one did and after a minute they said it was fine. Hmmm …

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Halifax
This hotel was AMAZING!!! Again I did a lot of research on this site and was willing to pay a bit more for location. This hotel is literally right across the street from the Keith's brewery and the waterfront/boardwalk. The Citadel was maybe a 7 minute walk, spring gardens (shopping district) was a 5 minute walk away and the waterfront boardwalk were within a few seconds. We paid $159/night and the parking was about $12/night. You won't need your car at all as you can walk to everything.
I stayed at the Four Points Sheraton for two nights, and haven't a single complaint. Not only was the room sumptuously appointed (God bless the Heavenly bed!), but the bathroom was also very large, and everything was impeccably clean. The service was great, especially the services of the concierge downstairs. Both evenings I got fabulous recommendations on where to eat (I asked specifically for Lebanese cuisine the first night, and was NOT disappointed at all in my concierge's recommendation), which tours to go on given my limited time and detailed directions as well.
The location is extremely convenient: at the corner of Hollis and Salter streets, only a couple of blocks from the waterfront. I enjoyed my stay immensely!
We booked a room at this hotel at the last minute, after we had already arrived in the city. It is located on the main street, so it is within walking distance to everything of interest. The staff was friendly and the room was a great value. The rooms are very spacious and very tastefully decorated. We didn't checkout the resturant, but there is a seafood place just across the road that you must eat at. The service and food there is excellent. Overall, for a lastminute booking we got an excellent deal, and I would reccommend this first class hotel to anyone.
Good Location - Very Comfortable
Great location - convenient to all downtown hot spots. Rooms are very comfortable and pool exercise facilities are available. Steps away from the waterfront boardwalk - great for walks after dinner. Also, very near the Saturday market at the brewery - a must see if you are there on a weekend. Parking is extra $$$ but not overly expensive. This property offered rates far below several other downtown hotel chains - good value.
Fantastic! The hotel was clean, friendly and efficient and we were more than happy with the service we received. The room on the 6th floor was lovely and big, and the concierge was extremely helpful too. Will definitely be staying here again and would recommend to anyone. Prices are very reasonable.
Went to see the Tall Ships. Perfect place to stay, two minute walk to the water front. Lots of food around and the hotel was all that you would expect from a Four Points. Cute Courtyard, nice rooms, Staff very accomidating. My only knock is, the pool is small and salt water, but the real attraction is outside in this beautiful city.
We stayed here for two nights before heading up to PEI. Good location, just at the edge of the waterfront shops and restaurants (about a 5 min. walk). Would consider this a nice 3-star, definitely caters to business travelers more than tourists, i.e. not many trimmings, but everything is clean and modern. Nice coffeehouse and restaurant across the street. Good choice if you're not looking for anything fancy.
Great Rate, Great Location
Halifax in general is on the pricey side and when looking for something decent in the city centre, the price becomes pretty steep. But this hotel is only a block away from the harbour, situated in the city centre, modern (only couple years old) and offers great internet rates.
For 105 CDN we were offered a junior executive which is a two room suite (bedroom & living area). The only catch was that to get the great rate, you had to pay in advance. The staff were friendly and the room was immaculate. We will use this hotel again when visiting Halifax.
Great Concierge Staff
We stayed here in August of 2002, also on the Executive Floor. "Four Points" is a budget sibling of its chain so nothing is deluxe, but a nice large room with water view along with the continential breakfast delivered to the room. The concierge staff was fantastic in arranging tours and restaurants for us and getting us an excellent rate on a scarce rental car...we've had much worse service in five-star hotels.
The hotel itself is one block from the boardwalk area. Most of the other hotels are lumped together at the far end of the boardwalk: we found that area loud at night from the Casino & party noise...and liked our quieter location. Stay here for the location and concierges!
During the month of March 2002, I stayed in a corner suite on the Executive Floor which is on the top (6th) floor of this hotel. This floor has private secure access and includes a small executive lounger with a fireplace, computer station and comfy leather sofas overlooking a lovely courtyard. The lounge was always empty. Room had a king size bed in a separate sleeping area with a second television and a cd player in the sleeping area. There was a small living area with black leather sofa and chair and a large workspace overlooking the harbour. Nice. There was a second television in this living area. Bathroom was small but had all amenities include a tub with jets, hairdryer, iron board, etc. The front desk called each night to take your breakfast order which was delivered quite promptly to your room each morning. The breakfast was plentiful with yougourts, breads, fruits, coffee/tea and juices - all delivered with your morning paper at a the time you select. Nice touch. Room service was very quick and food was good. Hot water was plentiful. Room was immaculate. Extremely comfortable bedding. You could also borrow cd's free of charge from a vast selection at the concierge desk. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great location in front of the harbour and at the edge of the downtown core. Despite this review, this is not a luxury hotel. It is very comfortable for business and family travellers. I would rate it as a 3 star almost four star hotel (out of a total of 5, with 5 being luxury).
