Conveniently Located

Posted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: We like the location, the fact that they allow pets, and the easy access.
An old, yet recently renovated, hotel. We enjoyed our stay. They permit pets and we travel with our little dog. The parking is right outside, at the back, and this is convenient. The location of the hotel is also convenient. The bathroom is terribly small with only one towel rack. We have stayed there before, so knew what to expect.

Nice Hotel

Posted Dec 10, 2014
Cons: Have a restaurant located within the hotel that is easily accesible for all guests.
The hotel was comfortable however I did not find an inhouse location for a good breakfast. If you want water to drink, please try to bring your own or buy some at a local store while staying at the hotel. The water in the hotel room will cost your $5.50! per bottle (regular size). The mini bar has some small snacks such as chocolate bars and a small can of pringles, which will cost you approximately $3.00 up to$3.50 each. I find getting to the hotel can be somewhat congested and confusing. Otherwise the hotel is very clean, the lobby is beautiful and the staff are the best.

Business trip. Hotel is a little dated. Shower old and heating/air conditioning system appears ancient. Could not get room to a comfortable temperature.

Park and walk

Posted Dec 2, 2014
Pros: Clean, parking available, easy to find.
Cons: the heating plant seems to be making a noise. Perhaps a little oil would help?
Location: Cross the street on Saturday morning and go to the bustling local Farmers' Market. A few doors down, you can enjoy the Mary Black Gallery.
When staying in a hotel in the city, I always stay here.

Great downtown hotel

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Shower....old hardware (taps and shower head) and not much force with the water.
Location: Downtown Museums, art galleries, restaurants and walkable street and pathways
Great downtown hotel, within walking distance of several historical sites and fabulous restaurants. Also, nearby is the local Farmer's Market open on weekends.

Westin Halifax

Posted Nov 22, 2014
Cons: personnel de la réception bilingue
Location: très bien situé, près de la mer et du centre ville
personnel très poli, dévoué, mais unilingue anglais. Le système de ventilation dans la chambre demeure un mystère pour moi.

Impressive: elegant hotel with excellent service

Posted Oct 25, 2014
Pros: We chose it for its placement in downtown Halifax near Pier 21 and that was satisfactory indeed.
Cons: Next time I shall remember to ask for a room that will be better suited to someone with limited mobility.
Location: It was chosen because of its place; we found it easy to move around the piers and the Historic properties.
The staff were excellent, from the valet parking to the desk staff to the room service waiters. The room was comfortable except for the bathroom: I have limited mobility and the siting of the toilet made things awkward. However: I had not made an issue of that when the reservation was made. We were pleased with our experience at the Nova Scotian.

exceptional stay

Posted Oct 22, 2014
I cannot say enough about the Westin. Each time we stay there, employees go out of their way to make our stay exceptional. This time, we were there for our anniversary and they treated us like gold. Thank you!!
