Fodor's Review

Built low to match the neighboring ironstone buildings, this waterfront hotel is convenient to the Historic Properties and the boardwalk. Though its external appearance is unlike others in the chain, the style inside is consistent with the brand, and its public areas have recently been upgraded. Rooms in all categories have an urban-chic look, plus extras such as pillow-top mattresses and rain-forest showerheads. There's a spa on-site, and a five-minute stroll through

an indoor walkway takes you to Halifax's casino.

Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Review

A $15.95 plus tax charge for in room wi-fi is more than an outrage, it is a new low in hotel chisling and clueless management. But wait, there's more: the Halifax Harbourfront Marriott "system" doesn't work with "Apple products" at any price, any where! I was recently in Kenya at a tented safari camp in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, many miles from Nairobi or anything else, where the locals live in dung huts. The wi-fi was free, high speed,

always available and trouble free. I am simply stunned that this otherwise lovely hotel can exist as a business or even tourist destination. It is rare, outside of government, to see such utterly backward leaning and incompetent management anywhere on the Planet today. In this internet age the lack of high speed wi-fi connection,normally free, is a deal breaker. I know of no one who would consider booking such a hotel. Call me "new fashioned" but there it is. I urge the traveling public to use the only tool we have to stop this corporate abuse: stop using Marriott world wide and insist that your travel department, travelagent or tour company do the same.
