Rated 4 out of 5 by mama54 Room not what we expected
The staff at the Westin are just wonderful, very friendly and helpful in every way. The location is fantastic, major restaurants including the Element, harbor walkway, farmers market it could not be better. We have stayed here many times to have a break. But this time our room was a usual King size bed, but wow the room was extremely small. We where not impressed small room, bathroom and the windows which over-looked the harbor had lost their seal so you could only really see out of one. We will be back but next time I will ask more information about the room, truly this is the first time we where not happy with our accommodations at the Westin.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maggiemay13 Great hotel
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaBelle Great location & service
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.

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 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.
