Holiday Inn Harbourview

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Jim Rosenberg on September 29, 2000

The Holiday Inn Harbourview in Dartmouth offers ready access to the Halifax waterfront via passenger ferry service just down the hill and access to the bus system across the street. The view from the balconies of the higher floors over the harbor is a nice touch and worth calling the hotel directly to secure. There is an outdoor swimming pool and a restaurant. (We found the restaurant to be outstanding, by the way -- not your typical "frozen deep-fried" type of hotel fare at all.) We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, but that is very typical of Maritime Canada.

We've visited the Halifax Harbourview several times; most recently in August 2004 during the Tall Ships festival in Halifax July 29 to August 2. (Book EARLY if you want to be anywhere in the greater Halifax area during festival times because things can fill up.)
