    Amazing hospitality!

    Amazing hospitality. Jaime & Gavin went above and beyond to help us make our day perfect. We can’t thank all of the staff at the Marriott enough. With COVID, we had many postponements and different venues. We lucked out that the Marriott had availability on our wedding day. Leading up to the wedding, Jaime was so kind and attentive to any questions, and Gavin was extremely sweet and helpful over our wedding weekend. We had a stunning view of the Halifax harbour behind us while we said our vows on their patio with 50 of our guests. We also stayed at the Marriott for the entire weekend and everyone had such a great stay. All Marriott employees are so kind and helpful, we really felt looked after. Our coordinators, the front desk, our lovely housekeeper, the restaurant and coffee shop staff - everyone was amazing and so hospitable. Thank you all so much for making our day beyond perfect!

    Unbelievable ceremony experience!!

    Michael Jim and his banquet team made such an unforgettable experience at the sable deck of this property. They are real event specialists and completely took the stress out of our day. We recommend them all the way.

    Marriott Harbourfront Hotel's reply:

    Thank you, Cass. That is very nice to hear. I am glad all went well and I hope you had a great day. I will pass off your kind comments to Michael Jim and the team.

    All the best!

    Beautiful, stress free wedding

    We had our wedding ceremony and dinner at the Halifax Marriott Harbour Front. We had such a beautiful ceremony on the outdoor terrace followed by a delicious ham dinner in the Sable Ballroom. The staff were so helpful and accommodating. The food was all brought out on time, drinks were topped up without having to ask, and the wait staff were all so lovely. The next day when we came down to take everything down, it was already all packed up and on two dollies ready to go. I would definitely recommend hiring the Marriott for your wedding.
