Positive Reviews

Good location near Halifax harbor

The Westin Nova Scotian is situated in a good location at the edge of the Halifax harbor, near the farmer/ seaport market. This gives you the opportunity to walk the entire harbor in the least amount of distance and soak in the majestic atmosphere.

Friendly and accommodating staff

Finding some of the hotel facilities could be tricky, but the hotel's staff members are always around for your service. They have a reputation for being friendly and accommodating; asking them for instructions and request should not be problematic and intimidating.

Well-equipped and modern fitness center

The fitness center on-site is just recently updated, so you might observe that the equipment and facilities are modern and state-of-the-art. An example would be a wide and new bicycle machine.

Negative Reviews

Problematic parking

The available parking space is located at the back of the establishment. When you park, you need to walk through a dark, dingy hallway that smells of cigarette smoke, and you might pass a constantly full garbage can just outside the door entrance. Moreover, the hotel only has two special parking space for disabled persons. To avoid this, you can avail of the valet parking service for an added fee.

Not up to "Westin" Standards

Compared to other Westin hotels, this branch seems to disappoint many guests. The rooms were reasonably clean but without any decoration or personality. However, this statement is only based on guests' personal preference.

Issues with the bathroom

Some of the bathrooms have toilets that are old and very low to the ground. Moreover, the bathrooms are not that spacious themselves, which could be disappointing especially a hotel of this caliber. Toilets are also loud when flushed. Ask for a room replacement with a nice bathroom facility if you experience this issue.
