Editor's Analysis
Updated on Jan 7, 2013
Overview
Located an 8-minute drive from Aerotech Business Park and a 10-minute drive from Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ), the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Halifax Airport is geared towards business or leisure travellers who require a stopover hotel near the airport with a free buffet breakfast and 24-hour airport shuttle service.

This non-smoking hotel has 119 air-conditioned guest rooms, all of which offer free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a coffeemaker, a desk, a hair dryer, and an iron and ironing board. Standard rooms offer one king or two queen beds, while suites provide additional amenities such as a separate bedroom, a living area with a sofabed, a microwave, a mini-fridge, bathrobes for each guest, and a jetted tub. 

Hotel amenities include an indoor pool, a business centre, a fitness room, meeting/conference space, a convenience store, free parking, and a complimentary daily breakfast. A free 24-hour roundtrip airport shuttle is also offered, running every 30 minutes from the hotel, while pre-booking for the shuttle from the airport is required upon landing. Pets are permitted free of charge, and accessible rooms are available upon request.

The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with much praise going to the hotel's rooms, value, and staff.

Many guests complimented their accommodations at this hotel. They described their rooms as spacious, modern, well-equipped and clean, with comfortable beds and linens and thick towels.

The hotel's value was praised by numerous reviewers. The free shuttle service (described as efficient and reliable) and the included breakfast (described as extensive and tasty) were cited as factors which contributed to the hotel's worth. These guests also reported reasonable room rates and good-value long-term parking packages.

Several lodgers were pleased with the customer service they received. They characterized the staff as friendly and available when needed.

The Bad
While many of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints among them, which included the lack of on-site restaurant, the pool, and the hotel's visibility.

Some guests were disappointed there was no on-site restaurant. Although there is a restaurant located at the hotel next door, the walk was described by some as inconvenient. It was also mentioned the restaurant next door was the only one in close proximity, and that one would need to drive if they wanted to eat at a different location. It should also be noted however, that the hotel's on-site convenience store provides ready-made meals.

A few patrons were disappointed with the hotel's pool. They described it as small and too cold, and these guests were also disappointed there was no hot tub available.

The hotel's visibility was a source of discontent for a few guests driving to the hotel. They described having difficulty finding the hotel's road, and that there was not enough signage to guide them properly to the location.

"How does a hotel exist without a liquor license?"
"I was so disappointed in the lack of a bar or restaurant. I spent the week traveling by myself with my 2 small children. Once both kids were in bed all I wanted to do was sit down, put my feet up, chat with my sister and have a glass of wine. I tried every way possible to get a simple glass of wine without any luck. It ruined my stay, had I not prepaid I would have gone to a different hotel. And the "king size" bed was the smallest I have ever seen. At 5ft I should not be able to touch the end of the bed?! I thought for the amount of $ I paid, it was mediocre at best. I would not book at this hotel again. How does a hotel receive a 9/10 rating with no liquor license or onsite restaurant? So very disappointed."

"Highly recommend Holiday Inn Express Suites Halifax Enfield"
"Great location as we stopped for the night on the way home from Iceland to Regina. It was close to airport and had a shuttle for guests to use between airport and hotel vise versa. Front desk staff extremely warm, friendly and informative. Rooms clean. Bed confortable. Air conditioner did not cool our room down. When we checked out we reported this to the front desk and a staff member was notified to check out the air conditioner as we waited for our shuttle (we were impressed). Thank you"
