Part of the Marriott family of hotels, the Westin is located in the heart of downtown Halifax with popular amenities located just outside the front door. Along with the convenience of staying at the feis venue, guests will enjoy the newly renovated event space at the hotel, offering the perfect layout for a championship weekend.

The 2025 room block rate at The Westin Nova Scotian is not yet open. Please note that attendees are not required to stay in the block to attend the event.

Please be aware that outside food and beverage are not allowed on the competition level of the venue. But not to worry, we will ensure food and beverage options are available for purchase onsite for attendees. The Westin is also located in the heart of downtown Halifax and there are many food amenities within close range if guests prefer to eat offsite.
