Rated 4 out of 5 by Michael262 Excellent value
This hotel delivers exactly what it is promised. Clean, professionally run, attentive staff. Great location, hugging the waterfront and across from the Seaport Market, easy walking distance to downtown and other attractions.

I found my stay very good, and the quality of service( most important to me) to be excellent.
One quibble: the sink (room 324) was too big for the room, however this was not a huge problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anton1 Generally, a fine hotel
This hotel has many amenities, though I can only comment on the ones I used. Appreciated the access to wireless Internet. Restaurant food and service are quite exceptional in quality and friendliness. The restaurant and the front desk staff all gave exceptional service.
Parking is difficult for mobility impaired- poor signage at street and back entrance - not easily visible from all access points. Level of lighting in room far too low for average person. There was a problem with the bedside lights. The bed bumped the power bar so the lights kept going on and off. Chamber maid said, "we'll, that's how it is". The so called "green choice" needs to be better explained to room cleaning staff. Ours seemed to think that just because we elected to keep our bedding over two days, that meant they did not even have to enter the room to tidy the bed, or give us clean glasses in the room or bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 beautiful hotel
Stayed a total of two nights at The Westin. This hotel had charm and elegance. The room was large, clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel offered all the amenities including Yuk Yuks. We walked downtown and it only took 10 mins. The boardwalk was also right there and was a easy stroll to everything. The front desk and front door staff were very friendly. I would stay there again and again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SeasideMom The ceiling fell down
It was a very wet and wild night. The rain apparently backed up under the roof and poured through the ceiling in my room 1115 Westin Nova Scotian. It was messy and wet. No one seemed interested until
I spoke with the manager who was concerned and reversed charges on my breakfast and valet parking. But I wtill paid for a room with a ceiling that fell down, Not pleasant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by IggyS easy to enjoy Halifax when you enjoy your hotel
great layout, exceptionally clean throughout, rooms offer wonderful view of the harbour.
Good location to waterfront restaurants, although the hotel has a fabulous one itself. Will stay here again on my next visit.

Hotel very nice, staff very friendly and very helpful. My only complaint would be the odd smell in my room. When I first walked in there a definite moldy smell in the room and a great deal of condensation on the windows. I opened the window and it dissipated a bit. Otherwise the room was very nice. Very comfortable bed with fantastic linen and an exceptionally clean bathroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KDGD I love this hotel
This is my home away from home. However, the recent departure of the hotel's only shop to pick up items such as snacks, toiletries and gifts is very negative. It was the only place to get snacks other than the very expensive mini bar. There are no vending machines either. The prices in the mini bar are outlandish and you have no idea how long the products are there.

I used a soggy day in Halifax staying at the Westin Nova Scotian to get into shape. The hotel supplied New Balence running shoes and a stylish gym outfit combined with a newly renovated fitness room to help me get into shape!!!
Finished off the session with a few laps around the pool and dip in the hot tub. Can't get a better deal in any other hotel in Halifax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yngdoc Westin Halifax, incredible staff
The staff are incredible , professional, polite and informative.
The location of the hotel is near the waterfront. The food in the bar and restaurant facilities is fantastic.
You know that the Westin Halifax is going to be an outstanding experience when you first arrive and the door men open your car door.
Can't wait to return. Thank you for the great stay.

You can count on Westin for service as always, the hotel could use some upgrading of the elevators though, they are pretty slow.
Food at the restaurant is very good and so is the service, more restaurants in the area make it a even better location than we remembered from the last time we were there. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again.

My wife and I were on an "anniversary" getaway and after a long drive we looked forward to a relaxing stay. The hotel by the bay, the warm and helpful staff, the comfortable room, were all part of a great experience. There were also many interesting sights, attractions, parks, and restaurants all within a short walking distance.
we will recommend to friends.

Had a great time at the Westin. Would recommend big time. Only one issue which i felt was purely a mistake on them was they had forgot to take some dirty cutlery and forgot to replace the coffee pouches that we had used that morning. Other then that the view was awesome, the staff was excellent and the facility was very well maintained...havea great trip!

Hotel is a bit run down but everyone who worked there could not be nicer. It was great to have a tennis court to play on , but were lent old, dead tennis balls unfortunately. Hallways smelled musty probably due to the building itself and not because the staff didn't clean it well.
Overall, the staff was really terrific, but the facility is old and faded.

We checked in to the Westin Nova Scotian on our first day as a married couple! The staff were brilliant and upgraded us to a beautiful suite with champagne in the room, a Jacuzzi and a rooftop balcony overlooking the sunset and Halifax skyline. It was a wonderful way to decompress after a whirlwind week in the Maritimes. We will be back many more times!

Rated 2 out of 5 by sherm21 Don't judge a book by its cover
Imagine checking in to a Westin and being given a room with only a pull-out couch bed. Yes, welcome to Halifax. clogged toilet drains and a bathroom that smell liked it hadn't seen Clorox in a while. Walls are so thin that I had to endure athletic honeymooners on one side and a snoring gentleman on the other. I could go on, but you get the point.

This hotel wants to be more than it is but what it is and what it will always be is an old tourist-class hotel. It has undergone obvious renovations but the rooms remain small, the air conditioning/heating is antiquated (although the windows open which is nice!) and the service at the front desk is as it has always been - understaffed and slow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pick79 Wonderful, but noisy
This is a wonderful hotel in a great location with fantastic views. The only issue is the noise from the equipment systems outside. My room was a harbor view, which was beautiful. You could hear the noise and not open the window due to the noise from the outside equipment. It's a shame to have such beautiful rooms and views ruined by noise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Scotty1264 Not my best stay
Room service dishes sat in the hall beside my room all afternoon and were still there next day at noon. Had a great harbourview room, but the windows are so old and stained that the view was ruined by stains embedded in the glass. Hand sanitizer by elevator was empty the whole visit, and only one elevator was working. Nice Breakfast buffet.

The rooms are very comfortable, great view on the harbour side and lots of fabulous restaurants in walking distance...Cafe Chianti, super delicious and awesome service. I love the distance to the farmers market as well! The cable reception in the room seemed a bit off and fuzzy while watching tv.

One of most consistent Starwood hotels out there. Best recognition for platinum guests and a great location. Staff always remember you and go the extra mile to streamline your check-in or departure. I've probably logged over 1000 nights now in 8 years in many hotels, this property is one of the ones i'm always delighted to stay at.
