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.

I asked for a room with a view - Westin delivered a king-sized bed on the 9th floor with a great view of the water. Clean room, comfortable bed, ample room for working and sitting, small but adequate flat screen tv and a functional bathroom. The fitness centre is a good size with new equipment - a very good set up for the average exerciser and adjacent to a pool and hot tub. You won't find a friendlier hotel staff, from the front door, to the desk, to the cleaning staff. Colleagues have dined at the Westin and said that the food was good. The hotel is in a wonderful location - close to Pier 21 and many, many good restaurants and pubs, and only 10-15 minutes walk from St. Mary's University. I will always stay at the Westin when I visit Halifax.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Erica5 Terrible experience
Took over 30mins to reserve a room, only to find out 2 days later that it was never done, spent over an hour on the phone with a rep, and upon check-in the next day found that there was still a problem with my reservation and it took over 30mins only for them to tell me they could not do anything. My SPG account balance has disappeared, apparently transfered to someone else without my authority. The sink and shower backed-up. This while I was in the shower. And while sitting outside there were rats. This is actually the 2nd time I stayed at the Westin in Halifax and the first time I had the EXACT same experience and problems. I only stayed here a 2nd time because I was attending a conference. I spoke to the manager and he said he would give me 3000 extra points, and rectify my SPG account issue. Never happened. I am extremely disappointed with my experience and do not feel that the severity of the condictions were taken into consideration. I travel frequently and have never experienced such conditions - even in smaller chains.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Westin Nova Scotia. The hotel is a well-located, clean, and nice place to stay. All of its staff were nice, friendly, and very helpful.

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.
