Fodor's Review

This imposing 1930s hotel sits beside the train station, with the cruise ship harbor behind and Cornwallis Park in front, and though it provides top-notch business services, it also has a resort-y feel. Along with a pool and a rare downtown tennis court, the Westin offers a small Wii/Xbox lounge for kids, plus complimentary activities such as face painting, movie nights, and pool activities in July and August. An in-house spa appeals to adults, and everyone will appreciate the signature "heavenly beds" and quality linens. The restaurant, Elements, serves fresh seafood, pastas, and meatier fare. The Westin is planning a major renovation in late 2016 or 2017.
