    Good

    Location

    Unfortunately my room was located adjacent to a noisy elevator, and my feeling is that I paid premium price becaues it has a view of the Halifax harbour.. in the future, should I decide to stay there agin, I will make sure to request a room with a city view, and located away from the elevator.

    Very good

    The location of the Westin was perfect as I travelled with several senior citizens. It was a short walk to the Harbour Walk, Pier 21 and the Farmers Market.

    We were a group of 12 and had 4 rooms. Two of the guests were awoken at 1:30 am by a pizza delivery person who had the wrong room. They were unable to go back to sleep. One of the seniors ordered a camomille tea as she was not feeling well and it was never delivered. The bathtub and sink in my room drained very very slowly which was frustrating. I reported all of this at the front desk when I checked out.

    Booked a king room for a romantic getaway. The first room they put us in hadn't been cleaned. Then they put us in a room with 2 double beds as they sold out of king rooms... Hmm??!! I'd like the extra money I paid for the king bed back- all though that's unlikely... Stay at the Prince George!

    Its location near the railway station & farmers market.

    Did not like the dinner we had. Too much pepper and vinegar on the salad.
