HALIFAX — Muir, Autograph Collection is set to open on the Halifax waterfront in the summer of 2021. Muir is the first hotel in Nova Scotia to be affiliated with Marriott International’s Autograph Collection soft brand.
Muir (Scottish Gaelic for ‘sea’) is the cornerstone of Queen’s Marque, a new urban waterfront district in the centre of downtown Halifax. The property was developed and operated by The Armour Group and designed by Nova Scotia-based architecture practice MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects.
The ‘Born of this Place’ narrative is reflected in ‘marine-inspired’ forms that jut dramatically above and over the ocean and continue through the inspired design of Muir’s interiors, which were designed by Canada’s acclaimed Studio Munge. Bespoke furniture and lighting, designed and crafted in Canada, reflect a modern interpretation of East-Coast design. Each guestroom features local original art and virtually every room has captivating waterfront views.
The hotel also features high-quality food-and-beverage venues, exclusive car and driver service and complimentary meeting rooms. The ultra-premium Wellness Centre is equipped with vitality and cold-plunge pools, a halotherapy salt room, high-performance equipment and workout studios.
Dining selections include Drift Salon, which draws on local, seasonal ingredients to create modern interpretations of traditional Atlantic Canadian fare. A ‘secret’ speakeasy provides an exclusive ‘guests-only’ experience, complete with a waterfront terrace.
Unique to Muir, guests can browse Muir’s Art Gallery, explore the extensive multi-million-dollar public art collection throughout Queen’s Marque and, for an entirely different perspective, climb aboard Muir’s yacht or motorboat and see a side of the city locals know best.
