The hotel is in need of major renovations especially the rooms which I found to be a bit small but all in all we had a awesome stay. The hotel is well situated if you are visiting and want to access the best attractions by foot. I have to say that the BEST asset for this hotel is the staff....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Westin Nova Scotian Hotels and Resorts have the unique way to make you feel excellent. There was my nice room to stay for a week, with the Walnut Furniture and the Atlantic Ocean view for looking at Georges Island, the Sea Market and Pier 21. There was the pool small size with the sea warm water- and the gym well...

If you stay at the Westin, make sure to have an omelette and waffle from Jamie at the Elements restaurant. He also made us a custom scrambled with butter (our request) which was phenomenal. The staff is very kind and kids friendly. Lee at the front door was like our personal assistant. Lee and Jamie made our trip!

First impressions of the Westin Nova Scotian are beautiful. We were greeted by friendly staff, and check in was simple, but our room, a king size bed with harbour view was an absolute let down. We have stayed at other Westins and have come to expect a certain standard and this hotel absolutely did not meet it! The harbour view...

Stayed for a week for a conference held at the hotel. Good facilities and the beds are really comfortable. The gym and pool are adequate. I'm a very good conference venue and the food throughout has been really good.

Such a great experience. The room was immaculate thanks to Elizabeth and we were greater so warmly by the front staff. Breton answered all our questions and provided us with exceptional service and recommendations! Amazing trip and it's only just begun.

Ideal location to many of the waterfront attractions and the sound of fog horns really adds to the Halifax/Maritime experience. While the hotel has been renovated, it still has the grand old bones of it's nearly 90-years. Personable staff accommodated our pets without a fee and moved us due to the fact we were on a floor with a lot...

The Westin Nova Scotian staff once again delivered outstanding service & yummy food during my week long stay that culminated in Mother's Day. Kudos to John and his team: Jesse, Jenni, Scott, Lee, Luke, Keegan, Jose, Elisa, Bryan & Jamie, etc. and their teams - for always treating my mother, brother, husband and our family members like family - as...
