The minute we got there, our valet was comped, for absolutely no reason other than they're friendly. Our luggage was in our room before we got there. We paid for an upgraded room, but didn't feel as though there was added value in the upgrade. The girl at the front desk went out of her way to get the manager... More

Pillow top beds, with goose down pillows, dark, quiet environment, what else would you want? Oh-- a great breakfast would be nice, and throw in a nice pool with a jacuzzi would be nice. They have all that, plus a staff that when you miss the wake up call, are at your door in 5 minutes. Central location to the... More

The ambience was established when my wife and I arrived at the hotel to be greeted by a doorman with his shirt hanging out. On other days he would be seen lounging against a pillar with his shirt in the same disarray and talking to the bar tender. Neither moved and we squeezed by to enter the hotel. And what... More

Westin was the perfect location for our visit to the beautiful city of Halifax. Everything we needed was within walking distance from the hotel. The room we were given was small but the hotel was kind and offered a later upgraded (which we passed on). Service was exception from Valet to the front desk. I would think though soon it... More

You would think with the cost of the room and the prices in the restaurant this hotel wouldn't fail to deliever. The night stayed, August 25th was apparently booked out, so booking in advance was certainly the best thing. The bed was very comfortable and the room over looked the bay, the best view in the entire hotel! The A/C... More

I travel a lot for both work and pleasure and this hotel was by far THE worst I have ever stayed in. The hotel looks and feels like a large old hospital or some other similar institution. While located next door to the Via Rail terminal, it is a fairly long walk from the main waterfront area. Our room was... More

Looked for a hotel through trivago, found a good deal with expedia. Hotel was clean, staff were friendly. Pool was nice. Hotel in great location for walking downtown Halifax and Harbour front. Hotel is older, but well maintained. Our room was in an older part of the hotel, but gave us a larger and quieter room, I would return.

Recent conference, choose the Westin, it was perfect, rooms were great, staff fantastic, close to everything, always enjoy a visit to Halifax, but now we got a new favourite place to stay! Close to the farmers market, and the Sunday brunch was excellent!

Wow, these people really go out of their way to make sure you have a fantastic stay! From the doorman suggesting places to dine, and then getting printed directions as well, to the staff ensuring that we had everything we needed, it was by far the best hospitality we have experienced in Nova Scotia! The room was spacious, clean, and... More
