Stayed one night while traveling through Japan. Beautiful hotel, immaculate/clean rooms with great city views, courteous staff who spoke English well. Location is easily accessible on foot from Sendai Station. This is my go-to while traveling in Sendai from now on. Excellent Starwood property!

We stayed at the Westin Sendai for 5 nights in September 2014. It was a most enjoyable experience. We would definitely stay at this hotel again. The room, a Superior Room on the 34th floor, was large by American/European standards and huge by Japanese standards. The King size bed was the largest bed I have ever slept in. There is... More

We caught the train from Tokyo to Sendai, and on arrival at Sendai Station you can see the Westin, but unless you have hand luggage only I suggest taking a taxi for 670Y. The Westin is an impressive building, attached to an office complex. My husband is SPG platinum so we were given a room upgrade and access to the... More

The first greeting at this wonderful Westin is the familiar, clean fresh scent that lets you know you’ve arrived. This property is connected to a large new office complex but was a great location for a tourist nonetheless - a few mins walk to the main train station (670 yen for a cab, the lowest fare possible - its what...

The Westin Sendai was one of my first experiences in Japan. I've stayed in Westin before, so it definitely held up the Westin standard - service, cleanliness, peaceful atmosphere, even the smell, but since it's Japan, it's another notch above. I really loved the bathroom amenities with special attention to details, including bath salt, a hair clip, etc. I definitely... More
