Local from Halifax

The Westin Nova Scotian is one of the largest and best hotels in the city. It is located in the south end of the city, just a couple minutes walk to the Seaport Farmers Market. Nearby you will also find the Via Rail train station, grocery stores, Discovery Centre, great restaurants, bars and everything you could need.

Lovely hotel, very pleasant staff. Quite accommodating. The bathrooms are kind of weird, commercial toilets and towel rack in the shower. Still a very nice place to stay.
