The Westin NS provides a very welcoming, comfortable accommodation. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very comfortable and return guests are recognized upon arrival.
The Westin has an excellent fitness centre; restaurant; conference facilities; private meeting rooms and the legendary Roy's Lounge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by liveinNS Great stay in Halifax
The Westin Nova Scotian is a wonderful place to stay in Halifax. The seaport, Harbour Views, and Boardwalk are right there, with the market as added attraction. Staff are superb, room clean and cozy, sleeping and bath excellent. It's our favourite place to stay when we come to the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peanut120 Thank you for looking after me
I travelled to Halifax frequently and recently have stayed at another property down the street for the sake of change. Today, I am back at the Westin and it is just what I needed. You always exceed my expectations, from check in to the comfort of the room to my meals.
You absolutely enhance the beauty of Halifax. Congratulations to the GM and the team at the property. Fantastic job.
FYI - Writing reviews is not my thing. however I am truly impressed with this hotel and its services.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steveo1 Thid Hotel is the WORST for Westin
Pathetic! Lousy depressing room. My sheets were pilling, scratchy and completely uncomfortable. The cleaning lady should of noticed when they were applied on to the bed. Very gross and uncomfortable. The hotel needs complete update. 2 star in my opinion. I hope you do some renovations soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ego10 Thanks for the memories
We stayed one night then came back three days later to stay another 3 nights. The staff were very accommodating, knowledgeable and courteous. Everything we asked for was dealt with immediately, even to police a rather noisy impromptu gathering on the floor above (things happen on Saturdays all over the world).

Great staff, confortable, functional rooms. Hotel restaurant, Elements, needs improvement. It used to be excellent but on my recent stays it has been mediocre at best. Salad wasn't as described on htemenu and fish was overcooked and bland.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone of my friends. From the desk staff at check-in to the great service we received at curbside and getting our luggage to our rooms.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Conference2014Aug Conference Hotel
The conference facilities were good. Nice rooms with good meeting spaces. The hotel itself is in need of upgrading. Elevators were particularly slow. Rooms very small accompanied by small bathrooms. The hot tub was "off limits" during our stay. Staff were nice and knowledgeable, but at the prices charged you would expect more. A number of my colleagues had issues with the hot water which was remedied later in their stay.

Harbourview rooms have a wonderful vista of the Halifax harbour. Conference facilities were great with the ability to handle large groups for plenary sessions. Easy walk to Historic Properties and other Halifax highlights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eleslie61 All expectations met!
Everything I would expect from the Westin. Comfortable, clean and well maintained rooms. Staff friendly and very helpful. Room and bathroom a bit cramped though. Large walk in closet really not necessary unless you are planning an extended stay.

Service was excellent with hotel close to museums and various restaurants. Boardwalk from hotel to casino provided a great walk along the harbor. Easy drive from hotel to other Nova Scotia tourist locations.

We recently spent 2 fabulous nights at this elegant hotel. Bed was divine, view was great, and staff was very professional & courteous. Highly recommend this hotel, located just minutes from the harbour-front boardwalk and shops.

Rated 2 out of 5 by J0415 Needs some work
The rooms need a little TLC. The room and hallways felt damp all weekend. Food is on the pricey side but that goes without saying when you stay in a hotel. The bar closed early which was a downer especially when you are in town for a wedding weekend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CanuckTraveler Perfect location to explore this great city
In the heart of downtown Halifax the Westin is within walking distance to all local attractions and the waterfront. Check out the harbour marketplace and Citadel Hill along with walking along the waterfront.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Westin Nove Scotian. We found the hotel personnel to be very friendly and helpful. Two employees went out of their way to be of assistance, and really helped make our stay in Halifax a nice one. My fourteen-year-old - who was not enthusiastic about the long train ride from Toronto to Halifax - told me I had gotten at least one thing right - the Westin Nova Scotian. The beds were heavenly with comfy pillow-top matresses.
The prices in the restaurant were a bit too high for our pocketbook, and the food did not seem special enough to support them.
However, on the whole our stay was a very positive one. The Westin Nove Scotian's location - attached to the Halifax train station - could not have been more convenient. This hotel was well worth the splurge it took for us to stay there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ontario2014 Great location
The hotel lobby, pool and general room accommodations were nice, and met expectations.
The bathroom was extremely small, with limited counter space and difficulty opening and closing the bathroom door, because of the positioning of the toilet. For a room with 2 queens (we had family of 4), the bathroom layout did not consider the number of potential occupants and user friendliness.

Rated 2 out of 5 by gdgirl Not like any Westin I've been in lately...
While the usual Westin amenities were as expected (Heavenly Bed and Bath) the physical plant of the Westin Halifax was disappointing. From rusty bathroom door, tippy vinyl bathtub insert and really substandard view advertised as "harbor view," stained carpeting, chipped lobby woodwork and poorly furnished hallways, this Westin seemed far below what I have come to expect as brand standard. On the positive side, the staff was lovely and the bar personnel very accommodating.

It seems that the hotel was constantly running behind. Everything from the valet to the waitresses and housekeeping took forever. And the experience in the restaurant attached to the hotel was one of the worst I've ever had.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rusty69 Problem quickly solved
There was an mouldy odor coming from the bathroom and a complaint was registered with the manager on call. Almost immediately, cleaning staff were there fixing the problem. The manager went above and beyond taking one room night off the bill and providing strawberries/chocolate. First class.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Josephine15 Excellent location
Staff members were very congenial and helpful. Dining room meal was excellent as was the wait service. The only negative was the size of the room - quite small and a cramped feeling. It was clean and well kept but hardly room for two adults to move around comfortably.

We recently spent three nights at the Westin Nova Scotian and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Upon checking in, my SPG status was immediately recognized and my room upgraded, as well as no charge for parking. The staff were all extremely helpful, friendly and professional. It was a delight to arrive at the Westin and collapse on my heavenly bed! The location was well located for all activities in which we were interested.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bobby4ireland Noisy room
While the overall room was as expected, we found we could not open the window at night, due to the extremely noisy mechanical equipment on a lower roof. Sounds like the bearings were shot on the large unit.

We have stayed there the last three years and have always been happy .Great location near the harbor ,farmers market ,restaurants etc.. Nice breakfast buffet at their restaurant and the comedy club Yuk Yuks is right in the hotel .Only complaint is the rooms tend to be a little bit noisy . We could hear the children crying through the vents from the room next door .
