Cheers to 85 Years

The Westin Nova Scotian's 85th Anniversary

Since its opening on June 23, 1930, The Westin Nova Scotian has been a downtown Halifax landmark and a staple in the harbourfront community. From hosting guests like Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth in the 1950s and 1970s or the late Princess Diana in the early 1980s, to participating in local community service activities - The Westin Nova Scotian is a proud Halifax hotel.

85 Acts of Kindness

As part of our commitment to our community, our associates, and our guests, we performed 85 Acts of Kindness to help celebrate our big birthday. From hotel volunteer efforts to random SPG Bonus points and more - our acts of kindness spanned the entire month of June. Learn more on our blog.
