The Westin Nova Scotian Marks 85 Years


Since opening on June 23, 1930, The Westin Nova Scotian has been a downtown Halifax landmark and a fixture in the community. From hosting royalty including Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth in the 1950s and 1970s, as well as Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana in the early 1980s, the hotel has been a celebrated member of the Halifax community.
