Where to stay: The elegant Westin Tokyo in Ebisu

The Westin Tokyo occupies an interesting seat in history when it comes to Tokyo’s hospitality scene. And after a successful reinvigoration spell, this property continues its signature as a wellness hub for family and business travellers.

The Westin Tokyo Lobby Lounge

Located in the quiet neighbourhood of Ebisu next to a bustling shopping square, the hotel’s proximity to the train station means that it is only a few stops away from the main areas in Tokyo (think Shibuya and Shinjuku). Tokyo Tower is only a stone-throw away. The 438 room-property under the Marriott group is a preferred choice of stay for many who are looking for quiet yet ease of travelling around in this sprawling metropolitan.

Not surprising as this area is rather different from other parts of Tokyo. Ebisu is considered more of a residential area, known for small, cosy restaurants, pubs and famous tachinomiya (aka standing bars).

The Westin Tokyo which has gone through a “reinvigoration” journey has carefully levelled up its deeply-rooted hospitality heritage with a fresh updo – ready for the changes in traveller expectations that inevitably will come.

The Terrace

Best known as an urban wellness hotel, it is not surprising to see that this hotel is imbued with a tranquillity that is quintessentially Japan – yet in close travelling distance from major attractions. A swift 0.6 km walk brings you to Ebisu train station which connects you to all major Tokyo landmarks.

The hotel features a fully equipped fitness centre, complete with modern exercise equipment and a swimming pool. Guests can also get pampered with a visit to its luxurious spa, where they can enjoy a variety of rejuvenating treatments and therapies.

The executive suite “Orchid” is a generous one-bedroom suite with a sweeping cityscape view.

The Westin Tokyo features numerous spacious and well-appointed rooms and suites with modern décor and state-of-the-art facilities. Each room offers a relaxing atmosphere, allowing guests to unwind after a busy day exploring the city.

And if you are staying in the executive Orchid suite, you are in for another treat. This generous one-bedroom suite includes a spacious walk-in wardrobe and green-tiled his-and-hers bathroom. If you are travelling with family, a connecting door to the suite next door ensures time together in the sizeable living room while ensuring the privacy of separate sleeping quarters.

Those visiting The Westin Tokyo will find exceptional dining options. Guests can savour authentic Japanese cuisine, indulge in international dishes, or enjoy a delightful afternoon tea. The hotel’s skilled chefs use fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create flavourful and memorable dining experiences.

The Westin Tokyo is also well-suited for business travellers. With fully-equipped conference and meeting facilities, a team of professional staff ensures the smooth running of any business event or gathering.
