A hotel stay makes a relaxing break from burdens of home ownership such as doing chores, cooking meals, and constantly reassuring the needy ghost that he doesn't look too pale in that light. Take a time-out from constant compliments with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-night stay in a traditional room plus parking at The Westin Nova Scotian on Hollis Street (a $207 average value).
A CAA/AAA Four Diamond Award winner, The Westin Nova Scotian is a historic landmark with 310 newly renovated guestrooms in an atmospheric waterfront setting. Guests can catch a few z's or y's on a Westin Heavenly bed (one queen-size bed or two doubles) or lounge while channel surfing the 32" flat-screen televisions. Each room has windows that can open, so guests can breathe in fresh-air-filled views of Cornwallis Park. Out-of-room experiences include the fitness centre with indoor pool, Sykea Salon and Spa, and Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club. This halcyon hideaway and conference hotel is also the home of Elements—a restaurant that was awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence—where guests can enjoy locally inspired Nova Scotian cuisine and wines. Rested and refuelled, venture out into the vast wilderness of boutiques and restaurants in the surrounding area for style hunting and gourmet gathering.
Leashed travelers such as dogs and children are also welcome at the Westin Nova Scotian, which includes amenities such as the Westin Kids Club and dog beds available for furry friends. Green-leaning guests can also take part in the Make a Green Choice program and receive a $5 voucher at participating food and beverage outlets or 500 Starpoints awarded at checkout for each night they decline housekeeping service (except the day of departure and on national Clean a Needy Sheet day).
