The Westin Tokyo
I’m obsessed with Tokyo! I try to make a trip out to Japan’s capital city at least twice a year, just to eat and shop! This was my first time staying in Ebisu at The Westin Tokyo. Ebisu is a major district of Shibuya-ku, conveniently located just one stop from Shibuya Station. Ebisu is also close to the city’s trendier districts such as Daikanyama, Naka Meguro, Shibuya, Shinjuku, and more. The shopping and restaurants in the area are amazing, which is one of the reasons why I loved staying at the Westin Tokyo. The Westin Tokyo is actually located in the quieter upscale part of Ebisu, in an area called Yebisu. The hotel is about a 5-minute walk from JR Ebisu station and fairly easy to get to from Haneda airport.
Rooms & Suites
We stayed in one of the Westin’s Executive Club Rooms on the 18th floor, with the city’s concrete jungle and Mount Fuji as the backdrop. The Westin Tokyo’s rooms are massive in comparison to some of the hotels I’ve stayed at in Japan, spread across 452-square-feet. The hotel’s decor gives off a classic European vibe, furnished with an aptly named Westin Heavenly Bed®, a full-sized bathtub, and rain shower. The room was also equipped with its own Nespresso machine, 26-inch LCD Flat Panel television, a humidifier/air purifier, along with everything necessary to work abroad.
Consisting of 438 rooms, The Westin Tokyo’s rooms all have standard amenities as well shared spaces such as a 24-hour gym and the La Spa Parisien. The WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment including cardio and weight resistance machines, free weights, and core strengthening equipment. The La Spa Parisien is a European-inspired spa offering body treatments, facials, and more. If you’re an SPG Member, you can also enjoy the exclusive SPG guest services at The Westin Executive Club Lounge, such as light refreshments, afternoon tea, pre-dinner drinks, and hors d’oeurves, located on the 17th floor.
There are a plethora of food options at The Westin Tokyo, with five restaurants and three bars. Choose from French cuisine at Victor’s, Teppanyaki at Yebisu, Ryutenmon’s Cantonese cuisine, traditional Japanese food at Mai, or a taste of the world at The Terrace International buffet restaurant. We enjoyed two lovely Japanese meals at The Westin’s Yebisu and Mai. Yebisu’s Teppanyaki grill was my preferred choice, serving perfectly grilled fresh Hokkaido scallops and beautifully marbled A4 Japanese Wagyu sirloin.
Activities in the Area
Shibuya: The Westin Tokyo is only one stop away from the city’s photogenic Shibuya district, where the Shibuya Crossing is located. You’ll find a ton of shopping, nightlife, food and more, all in this area.
Harajuku: Another one of Tokyo’s tourist attractions, just two stops from Ebisu station on the JR line. This area is good for streetwear and vintage shopping.
Omotesando/Aoyama: More shopping! This area is higher end, but it’s one of my favorites.
Daikanyama/Naka Meguro: I love this area! I could spend an entire day here. Naka Meguro has little shops along the river and cute cafes. Daikanyama is another great shopping district as well.
Koenji: This is my new favorite district! The vintage shopping here is next level and super affordable.
