How it Ranks: The Westin Nova Scotian ranks #3 out of 33 Halifax Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.

Our Take: With its waterfront location, The Westin Nova Scotian is perfectly located for travelers looking to explore Halifax's maritime sites, including the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. But what visitors love the most about this Westin is its dedication to quality customer service. Many previous guests praise the friendly demeanor of the Westin's staff. After enjoying some sightseeing, retreat to your comfortable accommodations, furnished with a signature Heavenly Bed, 32-inch LCD TV and a refreshment area. Though some guests do describe the bathrooms as slightly cramped, most praise the rooms for their spaciousness and cleanliness. Past visitors also wholeheartedly recommend sampling the food at the Westin's two restaurants, Roy's Lounge and elements on hollis, which serves up imaginative dishes like Dragon's Breath Blue Cheese Souffle and Grilled Marinated Couliflour Steak. Because Westin falls under the Starwood Hotels umbrella, Starwood Preferred Guests can earn points for choosing to bed down here.
