" Very nice hotel, with an ample, tasty breakfast, and incredibly comfortable beds. A Perfect location in downtown Halifax near the waterfront. Would’ve given it five stars, only before I got there an email had been sent by the hotel asking if there was anything they could do to make my stay more pleasant. They mentioned some options, and I checked that I’d like a room on a high floor. When I got there, they had assigned me a room on the second floor. I’m sure they would’ve made an effort to change it, but I was too tired to deal with it. I guess the lesson is not to send out those friendly emails, unless there will be follow through. Otherwise had a very nice stay in this hotel. "
