It's likely that some of you have been keeping an eye on the weather system but not as diligently as we've been watching I'll bet.
Our original flight plan had our plane leaving Halifax on Saturday, Feb 9, 2013 at 6:25 a.m. for Montreal. We were to have a short layover and then off to Los Angeles. However, given the impending weather-bomb, the chances are likely slim to none that we our plane would be wheels up at Halifax Stanfield International ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn Halifax Downtown
Great Place for Wet Weekend!
We spent two weekend nights at the Residence Inn in October, and were caught in the heavy rains from Hurricane Tammy. Despite the incessant rain, we really enjoyed our stay in Halifax because of this hotel and its remarkable staff. As others have mentioned, the staff were extremely courteous, and went out of their way to be helpful. The studio suite was very well designed, well furnished and comfortable. This is the place to stay in Halifax. And speaking of Halifax, this is a city that needs to do a better job touting its attractions. It is a beautiful city with lots to see and do. Don't miss it.
Recently stayed at this hotel for a long weekend - could not have been happier. Staff was fantastic! Location was terrific. Room - 2 bedroom suite - was enormous and had more than enough room for the three of us. It was like staying in a nice apartment. Full kitchen and table, plus living room.
Really enjoyed it and will stay again when we return to Halifax. Great city, great hotel!
What a great place this was. I'm a devoted PL customer, and have stayed all over the world using PL and getting spoiled with 4 star properties for 2 star prices. So when my bids on PL for Halifax failed (for the very first time) and I had to book direct, I was not a happy camper. Scouring Expedia I found this place with the cheapest rate, and the reviews were great, so I went for it. And boy was it a good decision.
We stayed at Residence Inn for 2 nights during August and were extremely impressed with everything about the place. We arrived with our luggage at around 10.30am, knowing we were too early to check in and they were only too happy to store it for us while we went exploring. They also expedited the cleaning of the room so we could check in earlier than normal. The reception staff were really friendly and our suite was just fantastic, so roomy - it was huge!! & clean. We'd requested a room with a view and were given just that, on the top floor with views over the water. There is a laundry there which is a great help especially when we were away from home for a month. The complimentary breakfast was very good and could even be taken on a tray to your room if preferred. Also free internet access was another plus. There is also a roof top area with barbeque for guests to use. Everything about the hotel was excellent and the price was reasonable. If we ever went back to Halifax we would definitely stay at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for luxury and friendliness and a reasonable price.
Perfect place to stay when visiting downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia! Brand new facility, personable front desk staff, spacious suties, and very secure parking underground, onsite. Breakfast was better than most hotel buffets, just got tired of sausage patties as the meat every morning! The kitchen is smaller than some other RI's I've stayed in (no oven, 2 burner stove top) but the in-frig ice maker and dishwasher made made up for that. A great pub just steps from the front door - Maxwell's Plum, has over 60 beers on tap, and a great pub menu til 2AM. Waterfront and great restaurants within walking distance - casino is a $5 cab ride away. Nice hottub, and rooftop deck with a HUGE gas grill for your use - just no grocery store nearby to run and grab some steaks. You really don't need your car unless you want to see Peggy's Cove, which is nothing compared with Brier Island or Hall's Harbour, on the west coast.
What a pleasant surprise! I reluctantly made reservations here because my experience with Residence Inn has not been the best. But due to the size of my family, 4 girls, we needed a little extra space.
Can't Say Enough
The Residence Inn, Marriott has everything you could ask for. This brand new hotel has a perfect downtown location, spacious clean rooms and fantastically helpful staff, along with an amazing free hot buffet breakfast and internet - all for a reasonable price.
I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which slept 6 comfortably and had a kitchen with stove, microwave, large fridge, dishwasher, along with all the cutlery, dishes and cooking supplies we needed.
If you are going to Halifax, stay here.
You are in the middle of downtown, between the Liquor Dome and Pizza Corner for those looking for nightlife, and down the street from the Five Fisherman if you are looking for 5-star cuisine.
Great value, confort, and location
My wife and I recently spent a night at the Residence Inn Halifax and I give the hotel top marks. The price for the weekend rate including hot buffet breakfast is by far the best value one can receive in downtown Halifax. The location is directly across the street from the Neptune Theatre and a couple of short blocks from the Halifax Metro Centre. Although there isn't a restaurant on site you have a choice of too many to count right outside your door. The studio type suite has everything you need including full size fridge, dish washer, stove top, and micro- wave oven, and the room as a whole is extremely comfortable. There may be larger hotels downtown with more amenities but when you consider price, comfort, and location, I would highly recommend this hotel.
The hotel surpassed my expectations! Excellent location, walkable to any attractions in Halifax including: Casino, resturants and nightlife. The rooms were beautiful and far exceeded my expectations. There was plenty of space in the room for one to relax and the kitchen was excellent to have for late night snacks! Chris and Kofi at the front desk were great and took care of myself and my travel companions. Marriott is my choice hotel and I will now be looking for Residence Inn's to stay at in the future. Can't wait to go back to Halifax
Fabulous location, easily accessible to shopping and restaurants, and citadel. Friendly staff, brand new hotel, fluffy towels. Perfect accomodation for anyone, especially families dont want to eat out every meal, since a kitchen is part of the room. Great full hot breakfast included. I would only stay at a residence inn from now on!
