Good 7.8 From 476 reviews

The Westin Nova Scotian, Halifax
I was surprised that the TV system was as antiquated as it was. I would expect the TV to be setup with regular cable (and a regular guide) and that it would allow me to hook my computer up to it to watch Netflix.

Great hotel in a great location. Business travellers may find the wifi a little lacking.
Alexander, ca1 night business trip
The Westin Nova Scotian, Halifax
More attention to detail required.
The room itself was fine, though there was no sugar or cream for the coffee. The bed was super comfy, but it was a king sized bed with a night stand on only one side. They could have put at least a little shelf on the other side. We were looking for info about checkout or room service, but could not find a pamphlet anywhere. The attention to detail is a little lacking here. The lady at the front desk sent us to the wrong reception room.

I neither got the rollaway bed nor the type of room I requested at the time of reservation. Internet was not easy to connect to. The location and view was great. The receptionists were politely not helpful .
