Rated 5 out of 5 by Glor Great hotel for a conference
Good meeting space - well located for people who want to get out for a quick look at the Halifax harbour. Hotel is close to the Maritime Museum and the Immigration Museum. Good restaurants within walking distance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MaryG Classic Hotel in a Great Location
I've stayed at many hotels in Halifax, and this is one of my favorites because of the location. It's a classic property, so could use some renovations, but you can't beat the proximity to downtown. The staff is fantastic.

This hotel has friendly helpful staff. They are interested in ensuring your needs are looked after. They provide, for a nominal cost, workout gear should you require it. Very accommodating. Responded to requests promptly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Schoolguy Wake up a bit early to take time to enjoy the breakfast buffet
The breakfast was fantastic! The buffet is very fresh. There are many choices. A little bit of healthy and a little bit of spoiling. It is all there. And the staff make you feel like you are visiting an old friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dc2013001 Great location
The Westin NS is always a great stay, perfect location and staff is great. The hot tub was more of a warmish tub, and the elevators are slow... Staff at booking, checkin, and check out we're a pleasure... Thanks

We found the hotel to very beautiful and well maintained. Our room was very clean and cozy. We loved the renovations done to the lobby - it is very grand gorgeous. Our only complaint - we only stayed one night!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CKB007 The Westin was a great venue for our AGM
The Westin Halifax was a great venue for our company's annual general meeting of 120 staff. The staff were courteous and helpful and the events worked because of the expertise of the management team.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mikey33 Great Staff - Bad Rooms
Staff was friendly and helpfully both at the front desk and in the restaurant. Problem is the rooms are in a need of a refresh. AC does not work well and the beds are too soft (need to be replaced).

Rated 2 out of 5 by justvisiting Not up to Westin Standards
Room cleanliness and condition is not up to Westin standards. Rooms are in need of repair. This has not changed from 2 separate stays over one year apart. Did not recognize SPG status at check-in.

Problem with reservation but was resolved more than satisfactorily and in a pleasing manner. Excellent room over looking the harbour and an excellent selection for the breakfast in the restuarant

Rated 1 out of 5 by Glenn576 Do not recommend
Hotel as a great location and good potential but always seems to be missing something. Many small annoying issues keep coming up. I am not the only person who has mentioned this to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bromlyn01 Great Family Hotel
This is a great Hotel to take the entire Family. It is far enough away from the Downtown Core that you don't feel like your in the busy part of Halifax and they treat the kids great.

We felt welcome from the moment we walked in the door. Staff were readily available to assist with anything we needed. Spotlessly clean hotel. Location to the boardwalk was a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by judytsr Excellent service and consistently friendly staff
I had read the positive reviews so we were looking forward to our stay, hoping for an upgrade to a suite with our platinum status. Discovered the hotel was booked with a convention and no upgrades were available until the 4th day of our 5 day stay. Our room was a corner room-- ok but crowded due to all our "stuff" for a 7-week road trip.The shower, unfortunately, barely functioned. After calls with the manager, we were upgraded to an amazing suite the next day that was truly spectacular. The manager, Jesse, personally moved us. We also enjoyed platinum perks of free parking, free internet, free delicious and abundant buffet breakfast, plus 25% off dining at dinner. All of the staff have an exceptionally friendly and conversational manner, whether it is "how is your day gong so far?" from housekeeping, to tips on where to visit in Cape Breton, from a wonderful waiter . Even the rain didn't dampen our spirits, as we loved feeling pampered in our room. Local dining and shopping were fun too-- but be sure to dine in the hotel restaurant for dinner-- exceptional! Thank you so very much for making our trip so enjoyable.

The Westin is a fine Hotel, the Finest in Halifax.
Plastic Glasses, Cheap Amenidies in our Room "Priemer King- Harbour Side" was not what one would expect from the "Weston"

Rated 1 out of 5 by Katzchen Wish I had my wedding somewhere else..
Not happy at ALL with the service that I received while having my wedding at the westin Dec '12.
Stayed at the hotel the night before and someone got beat up outside of my room at 2:30 AM so I went into my wedding on 4 hours of sleep!!!
They were supposed to change my room over from ceremony/reception and they didn't! My GUESTS had to! And some of my guests even left!! The lady that was assigned to my file wasn't there the day of my wedding NOR did she pass along any of my wishes to the staff who were actually there that day. Ontop of it all during the whole planning process she kept trying to tell me what I wanted... and kept disagreeing with me when I told her what I wanted! AND she was two weeks late getting back to me about the catering menu then told me I had one day to get all the information to her because she was going on vacation!!
There was also gum stuck to the floor of the venu!!
Some of the breads that I ordered from their catering menu were STALE!
So unprofessional! And to think I chose the Westin hotel because I wanted a higher class...
I urge anyone planning a wedding to stay clear of the Westin.
