Best of Halifax

Best Hotel

The Westin Nova Scotian Hotel

It has 297 rooms. Twenty-three thousand square feet of meeting space. It was visited by the Queen (twice) and Princess Diana (once). Yuk Yuks comedy club is in the building. There's an indoor pool. A hot tub. Café Pronto serves Starbucks coffee. An $8 million renovation is in the works. Formerly of the Casino Hotel, Raj Jupta is now the new food and beverage manager as well as the new chef. They’re focused on what general manager Guido Kerpel calls “instinctive service,” anticipating the needs of guests in advance. Is it any wonder the Westin is Coast readers’ choice for Best Hotel? 1181 Hollis, 424-8935
