Westin Tokyo

Westin Tokyo
“Preserving wellness in travel” is the goal of The Westin Tokyo. And that it does. The hotel is a luxurious European Classic/ Empire-style establishment combining French, Roman and Egyptian décor. The 22-story building is surrounded by abundant greenery, a contrast to other major Western hotels in Tokyo. The Westin Tokyo says its aim is for guests to leave feeling better than when they arrived. At first I thought that was just a bit of clever marketing. But I must admit that I did leave feeling better than when I arrived. Well done, Westin. Well done.
Built in 1994, the hotel has 438 guest rooms and 20 suites. All guest rooms have separate bathtubs and showers -- replete with bathrobes and bath amenities, and the “Westin Heavenly Bed.” The Westin describes the bed as “our industry-leading innovation, which promises you heavenly sleep like no other.” Again, I had my doubts. But they came through again. The bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept on. Starwood Preferred Guest Platinum members and guests staying on Executive Club Floors have access to the Westin Executive Club Lounge. For women, there is a femaleonly floor that provides Bulgari amenities, Nespresso coffee and an in-room foot spa.
Other facilities include a Business Center, Le Spa Parisien, a European spa in a Paris-style apartment setting, and twelve function and meeting rooms of various sizes with seating for corporate events and weddings. The meeting rooms seat around 20 people and the banquet rooms 30 to 1,000.

The Westin Tokyo has five restaurants serving European Continental, Teppanyaki, Cantonese, Japanese, and Epicurean / international food. Bars include the Compass Rose Sky Lounge with live jazz in the evenings, the Lobby Lounge with tea and light snacks, and the Bar with whiskies, spirits and Cuban cigars. In addition, The Westin Deli offers international coffees and teas, plus freshly baked cakes and pastries. The multi-course meal I enjoyed at Victor’s was a gourmet delight served with exquisite locally-grown Tokyo vegetables at a table with a gorgeous view overlooking Tokyo from the Westin’s 22nd f loor. Fitness for the Corporate Traveler Did you travel to Tokyo without your running gear? No problem. The Westin Tokyo has an athletic gear-lending program, which lends New Balance running shoes and workout clothing at no charge to guests staying at the Westin. Would you like a guided running tour of the area? Schedule an appointment with the “running concierge.” How’s that for hospitality innovation?

The Westin Tokyo is located within the Yebisu Garden Place, an upscale complex of shopping, entertainment and corporate offices. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from Ebisu or Meguro Stations on the JR Yamanote line.
