Westin Nova Scotian

1181 Hollis St., Halifax, Nova Scotia, B3H 2P6, Canada

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.
