    If WiFi is your primary concern, this hotel may be a disappointment. $10 per device in guest rooms with marginal reception.

    Buy the porn! It's cheaper than crashing your computer trying to watch your own.

    Thirsty? Check out the newly renamed lobby bar. Roy's!

    Small, very small rooms, service is ok, expensive internet, with very poor reliability. Good location to get around downtown, but having stayed in other hotels in Halifax, this doesn't rank very well

    If you get room 231 and paid full price... Demand a room change. This room is not worth over a hundred dollars. Closet is almost non-existent. The view is of the flat roof and other people's window

    Ask girls at the front for the Wifi Code nicely, they are super friendly and might give you a code of the day to use for your stay for free!

    It's almost midnight and there is a DJ playing LOUD music right below my room. The front desk won't help. I recommend trying to get a room further away from the lobby (read: not on the 2nd floor!)

    NOISY creaky, old hotel. Rooms are small, with dated carpets, be careful in selecting rooms, lots of rooms with views of nothing. Location is ok, but other hotels have many other amenities nearby.

    The $10 wifi fee is crazy. Anyone who thinks these rooms are small really should never travel to Europe. I found our room to be just fine and the bed is so great I bought one for home.

    Great view from the ocean side. Shiraz at 1240 Hollis serves awesome cheap Persian food, not a half block away. Try the South End Diner for breakfast (2 blocks away).

    Great place to work! There are Wonderful Westin people who are always eager to help; from making your reservations - planning your entertainment - or catering to your hunger needs, the Westin rocks!

    Had a great stay here. The Shiraz Persian restaurant nearby is a must try small traditional mom and pop ran place with authentic Iranian food. Superstore also conveniently located nearby.

    Internet seems fine and fast on 10th floor and lobby. Free if you are Starwood preferred

    Over priced hotel for its age and upkeep. Internet in rooms is terrible (wired & wifi) AND costs and is even slower in banquet rooms. Beds are nice however the rooms are small.

    Free wifi when you upgrade to a premium room. It is also available in the beautiful hotel lobby, business center and Eve (Starbucks Cafe)!

    $10 a night for Wifi! A definite turn off. Glad I have my iPhone.
