Perfect wedding day
I had an amazing experience planning my wedding with the team at The Westin in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Jeff Salterio went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy and comfortable throughout the planning process. Chef Raj was also wonderful to deal with. Our wedding day was seamless with zero errors and Jeff had a large part in making that happen. I am happy to highly recommend The Westin for weddings and any events.Sent on 09/07/2018

Jeff at the Westin is absolutely amazing!!!! My fiance and i walked out of there completely blown away we were truly speechless (in a good way) It was the second place we viewed and nothing compared to the space and the way jeff made us feel leaving so of course we had to book! I would highly recommend!!Sent on 30/11/2016

I have very mixed feelings about the Westin after hosting my wedding dinner there and using them for all of our guest's lodging in early August 2015.Sent on 23/11/2015
The lodging aspect was great! I stayed in a suite with my bridesmaids and then groom and it was spacious, connected to a HUGE outdoor patio, and had a full bathroom and a half bath which was really exceptional. Since there were more than the typical 2 guests in the room, we did require extra bath towels, etc which guest services provided without hesitation. Interestingly, there was a pull out couch in the room with no blankets and when we called guest services the first night to request a blanket they told us the hotel did not have extra. Two of my bridesmaids thus spent the night freezing, sleeping with the hotel robes and multiple layers of clothes. The next night we tried guest services again and they brought a comforter right up. Why?
We also had issues with the parking. Part of our group rate was supposed to include complementary parking for all wedding guests. They doled this advantage out very intermittently and many of our guests ended up paying for parking even though we were promised that they would not.
The front desk staff and bell boys were all lovely to interact with and helped us with any and all requests!
Finally, the wedding dinner portion. We got paired with the wedding coordinator for the Westin named Jackie Collins. Her service/planning/etc was very mediocre. We had multiple miscommunications with her that could have easily been avoided, except she was very disorganized. We even had more than one instance where we had written "proof" of something she had earlier told us, but then she changed
The Westin was where we stayed on our wedding night. It was a great hotel to get ready in and was quite close to our wedding venue.Sent on 07/07/2013
