I have 4 criteria when deciding whether a stay at a hotel has been a good one or not:
1. Is the room clean?
2. Are the beds comfortable?
3. Is the price reasonable?
4. Does the shower have good water pressure?
How does the Westin Nova Scotian stack up?
1. Yes, the room (and hotel in general) was clean. It was a little tired behind the updated furniture and paint, but still clean. Our room had a massive walk-in closet compared to the room size, but I'll chalk that up to its age.
2. The beds were comfortable. My wife commented specifically on it. Bedding was nice as well.
3. We paid $108 plus tax for the night, so I think that was a reasonable price to pay. We also paid $18 for parking out back because we weren't sure what the street parking would be like. As it turns out, we could have parked on the street no problem. Which we'd do next time if we stay here. I wouldn't count on that option being available in the winter though. If a storm rolls through, over night parking gets banned in the winter.
4. Shower pressure was ok. I'd put it in the middle. It wasn't like a fire hose, but also didn't just drip out either. The shower head was kind of loose on the wall which goes back to point #1.. the room was a little tired. Clean, but tired.
Would I recommend you stay here? Sure. We'd stay here again.
We didn't use any of the facilities, so I can't speak to those.
