    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.

    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!

    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!

    You can never go wrong staying at a Westin hotel, in my opinion. The Westin Nova Scotian is no exception. Rooms are on the small side, but it's close to everything in downtown Halifax.

    Get Free High Speed Wifi>>>ask at front desk to sign up for an SPG membership (it's free and takes only 30 seconds).

    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).

    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!)

    Ask to have your room facing the Harbor as the views are much better...preferably fourth floor or higher.

    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

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

    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

    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.

    They charge for wifi. Some reno work going on. There coffee place is friendly but SLOW. Gym facilities adequate. Keiths ale house is close, good pub food/beer. Small running map 8/5k loops at desk.

    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.

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

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

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