Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA (PRWEB) April 27, 2007
Halifax's premier waterfront hotel, Halifax Marriott Harbourfront, has even more to offer business and leisure travelers thanks to the completion of the latest phase of its five-year, $14 million renovation plan. The Halifax casino hotel is located on the sparkling waterfront, connected to the exciting Casino Nova Scotia and situated in the heart of downtown.
"Halifax Marriott Harbourfront is the city's premier hotel, and we're investing heavily to ensure that we continue to offer the highest level of service, comfort and amenities that today's traveler wants and the Marriott brand represents," says Leah Leslie, Director of Sales & Marketing at the Nova Scotia hotel.
The most recent renovation phase saw 180 guest rooms completely remodeled and redecorated creating a stylishly modern, yet warm and comfortable environment. All rooms feature Marriott's exclusive Revive™ bed and bedding that provide the ultimate in comfort. 300-count Egyptian cotton linens and a down mattress pad ensure that guests enjoy a wonderful night's sleep every night.
Bathroom upgrades include new countertops, curved shower curtain rods that offer guests an extra five inches of freedom, and another Marriott exclusive - the Rain Forest showerhead, which simulates a natural rainfall for a relaxing and therapeutic experience.
Executives and business travelers staying at the hotel in Halifax will find redesigned work centres in each room that include ergonomic chairs, and in some rooms, the new "Desk that Works," which can be easily converted into a number of configurations.
"The upgrades and improvements are not limited to in-room," Leslie said. "New corridor carpets, brighter hallway lighting and new furnishings in our lobby were also added during the renovation."
Marriott Hotels is an international chain, but guests at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront hotel are treated to a uniquely Maritime flavour. Nova Scotian artwork hangs throughout the hotel and framed black & white photos of the Maritimes are displayed in the guest rooms.
A 1600-square-foot state-of-the art fitness centre that rivals many gyms has also been added. The facility is for the exclusive use of hotel guests and offers 24-hour access. The centre features the latest LifeFitness™ equipment including weight training machines, free weights, five treadmills, two stationary bikes and four elliptical machines. Treadmills are equipped with individual television monitors complete with complimentary headsets.
"Our new fitness centre design is a Marriott prototype that will soon be rolled out to our hotels across North America," said Leslie. "Since its opening in early March the response from guests has been extremely positive. We were excited to be able to offer it to our guests here at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront hotel first."
Guests who prefer to work out in the privacy of their own room can take advantage of other pieces of fitness equipment including the Body Wedge 21™, the Body Rev™ and Michael Sena's Traveling Trainer™, that can be delivered on request, directly to the guest's room.
A new Starbucks™ location adjacent to the South entrance of the hotel will also open this spring, offering guests another comfortable spot to socialize, relax or grab their favorite beverage on the way to a business meeting.
The next phase of the Nova Scotia casino hotel improvements will begin in November of 2007 and see the completion of the remaining guest rooms as well as other upgrades.
The new additions along with existing amenities including Interlude Spa, meeting and banquet facilities, 44 North Restaurant, 63 West Lounge and The Fife & Drum pub are helping build and grow the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront's reputation as the premiere business hotel in Halifax.
