The hotel is in a perfect location and we were able to easily walk the area. Located on the waterfront makes it convenient to checkout the stores, restaurants, bars and attractions in the area. Very clean, polite staff, good food and service, with typical Marriott rooms. I suggest getting a room with view of the Harbor because it's beautiful at night. Our room had a small harbor view but was very nice to watch the people on the docks and the ferry coming and going. Very easy to walk from the hotel to the museum's, Citadel, restaurants and more. We especially enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the Halifax Marriott. There was a wide variety of hot and cold dishes and even an omelet bar.
