The Westin Nova Scotian, Halifax, Canada

The experience was over all satisfactory. However, our room was extremely hot. Even after turning the fan and A/C on it was uncomfortably hot. I had to leave the window open all night which still wasn’t overly effective. I’m always cold and found the room unbearable. Parking is extremely expensive as well, especially since parking during my stay was completely free on the street, paying $20 for parking is a little much. The service was very good though, I had an issues with the shower and a staff memeber was sent up immediately.

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.

The hotel staff handled a difficult situation with other noisy guests very professionally and went to great lengths to remedy. Two thumbs up to management of Westin for how they chose to handle. Westin is still our favorite hotel chain!
