                                  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.

                                  Was in room 818 heard the elevator noises until middle of the night and starting again early morning,connecting door with room 820 extremely noisy neighbours as if they were in my room ,heard flushing of toilet in room above as if it was in my own bathroom

                                  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.
