Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax
Travel Blogs from Halifax
Okay...so I'm several days behind now, but between dead-zones, and travel exhaustion, I haven't much felt like blogging. So, after the best pizza I've ever had, in a huge hotel suite...we had a board room, small kitchenette, huge livingroom, large bedrrom and a bathroom bigger than both VIA rooms put tpgether, and a okay night's sleep, (we had …
... We walked down to the souvenir shop that had floaty pens in the past. They still had a few but it was not a new design. However, since there were only 5 left and photoramic, I bought them anyway. We then climbed around the rocks, staying pretty clear of the vicinity of the lighthouse because there was a bagpiper there. It really is such beautiful scenery. I got Pete to 'crush’ the lighthouse (yeah, like ...
... knee, with a little tiny black box in his hand. Oh my goodness.
Now this is where [Craig] and my stories differ a little bit. I will tell mine first. So I'm looking at Craig, seeing this little box, and I know exactly what's coming, and all of a sudden time is moving at warp speed [for one of us... not so much for the other]. I hear Craig ask me if I will marry him, I hear the husband of the lady who's taking photos say "oh wow, this is really happening," and I ...
... waterfront in Halifax taking the Seaport Market in and enjoying a beer in The Alexander Keith Brewery. We took a drive out to Peggy's Cove to visit the most photographed lighthouse in Canada, where we enjoyed the rocky landscape watching waves crash up the rocks and the sturdy lighthouse stand tall taking on any weather rolling in off the ocean. We got spoiled with some tasty home cooked meals and enjoyed playing with ...
A coolish -21 this morning. BUT we made it to the airport and, as I write this, the flight to Toronto is on time. We'll see.
We got on the plane, got de-iced and anti-iced then made our way to the starting line on runway #5. At 9:16 we were wheels up and on our way to Toronto with extra fuel in case we couldn't land.

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax
Great Hotel! Great Breakfast!
Great Hotel! Huge rooms! Great breakfast. Friendly staff. Like 2 other places in NS, I picked this place from tripadvisor reader comments, but only this one exceeded my expectations. Would highly recommend.
I stayed here while in Halifax for business, and it was an EXCELLENT choice in all respects. The staff are very helpful and friendly, the breakfast a great start to the day, the rooms spacious and well appointed. Internet aceess was very affordable and easy using my laptop.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone - business or leisure traveller. A family of 4 would have no problem fitting into one of the very spacious suites (separate lounge room)
Favorite place to to stay in Halifax
The Radisson has the friendliest, most helpful staff of any hotel I have ever stayed in. The location is great. The complimentary continental breakfast provides a nourishing start to the day. The suite is comfortable and spacious. Good value.
The suites are very spacious and well appointed. Try to get a suite on an upper floor and which faces the harbor - the views are great. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and made our stay even more enjoyable. There are free snacks during happy hour and a nice continental breakfast in the morning (included). They also have cookies available throughout the day.
Great weekend rates
Had a great friday and saturday [16/17 April 2004] stay. Nice large room, very clean, great maid service, good view of harbor. Eastside Marios down stairs is a great place for a meal and beer after a long day travelling.
This hotel is an unbelievable value. The rooms have every convenience; they are extremely spacious (ask for a corner suite - they're the largest); the staff is great; rooms are beautifully appointed; and to top it all off. a complimentary continental breakfast with a large, healthy variety of items. It's the best I've stayed in anywhere.
Great hotel in a great city
I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times and have been very satisfied. The staff is courteous and helpful. The rooms are large and are uniquely shaped - all suites. The pool/fitness area is well-equipped and clean. Internet access was easy. East Side Marios downstairs is convenient. Windows in the centre rooms (102, 202, 302, etc.) are small and don't afford much of a view.
This is my favourite hotel in Halifax. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are fabulous. For basically the same cost as a hotel room elsewhere, you get a large suite and breakfast. Each room is a little bit unique, but they are all huge, comfortable and well maintained. Breakfast is fun - they turn the bar into a breakfast buffet. A little crowded, but sociable and lots of healthy breakfast choices too. Spring for turn-down service! They leave these yummy locally made florentines and a nip of Bailey's irish cream. Mmmm...
Room to spare
I just spent two nights in this property and I found the value to be terrific. I enjoy suites, so this one really fit the bill. Plenty of room, hi-speed internet access, attentive staff, valet parking ($17.50/nt!)and a great location.
You need a roadmap to find your way around the suite--it's that big.
Breakfast was great, but you might have to plan around the crowded times. Free breakfasts draw everyone!
The friendliest staff, large suites, fantastic service. Stayed for the weekend and loved every minute. Best hotel in Halifax
