Historical Traveler Reviews The Hollis Halifax - A DoubleTree Suites By Hilton
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.
The hotel is located about two short blocks from the waterfront and directly in front of the area where all the "action" is. There is a fairly steep slope up from the water to the upper part of town, so the hotel's close proximity to the water makes returning to the hotel a pleasure compared to the climb that would be needed to get to other main hotels. The hotel is also in easy walking distance from some fantastic restaurants and great night life action. The location could not be better for enjoying the city of Halifax.
The airport shuttle will drop you off and pick you up by the hotel. As will the car rental places (we used Hertz which was had the best rates and was located a few blocks away by the casino).
I highly recommend the Radisson Suites hotel for a comfortable stay in Halifax!
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

... s request. Within half an hour we arrived at the POP Century Resort at WDW. I had done online check in before we left home, so it was just a matter of verifying our credit card info, giving us our new Magic Bands and our welcome package. We went directly from there to the food court to gran some dinner. Nancy and I had the Angus burger combo, and Courtney loves the chicken breast nuggets here. For dessert we had tie-dyed cheesecake and ...
... Lounge, Weekend Warrior (sport bar) and The Chamber – a night club. When walking down the Royal Promenade, it is hard to believe you are on a ship – longer than a football field, it is like being in a mall with the Crown and Anchor pub, and shops selling jewelry, clothes, designer merchandise and souvenirs. The aquarium bar has beautiful fish tanks holding 56 tons of saltwater and hundreds of tropical fish. Other ...
... spot in the city. Spotted the infamous mermaid in the lake - a statue that was apparently blown up in the 1960's by local artists who did not approve of the design and execution of the original statue and it was only replaced recently - don't mess with militant artists :) By lunchtime, the downtown was hopping with locals and tourists who were enjoying weekend brunch or coffee and who were congregating for the local Pride Parade and festivities which were happening all ...
... unhappy. She got off to look for our two MIA's. Personally, they were annoying the **** out of us, so I voted to leave them. Supposedly it was a $150.00 cab ride back to the ship. I still wanted to leave them. When they finally made it to the bus they had gone to a restaurant to order a sit down lunch. Seriously? You have less than an hour, and you go order lunch? I really wanted to leave them at that point. When we got back to ...
... work for the next month is very, very appealing to us....avoiding some of the winter, and just relaxing in the sand, sun and sea of an island called Caye Caulker. We are really looking forward to this respite from our everyday life here in Nova Scotia. It's good to get away...to GO SLOW - which is the motto of Caye Caulker. But our first leg of our journery will be to visit the children at the orphanage where I volunteered in ...
